Michelle Obama dropped by Ellen Tuesday to talk about life after the White House and to co-host the show. Steph Curry also stopped by and revealed that President Obama likes to trash talk when the two are golfing.

“I’ll hit a shot out of bounds, and he’ll just look like, ‘Yeah, that’s, uh, that’s not a good shot. I’m gonna need you to do better next time. It gets under your skin, too,” said Curry.

Last year he told Jimmy Kimmel, “Basically, it would be like a four-foot putt, and in the friendly games, when we’re not really playing for money or anything, usually it’s a gimme, you pick it up. He’d be crickets. Just silent, looking at you … put the pressure on, that kind of deal. … He just tries to get in your head.”

Luckily, Michelle was able to give Steph a few pointers to help him when the president starts to trash him.

“Talk about his ears. As you’re putting, you want to say, ‘The shadow from your ears is really messing up my put. Try that one.” Dang, Michelle really goes for the throat. 

We’re not sure we’d ever want to step into the trash talking ring with President Obama, especially after witnessing him roast politicians and press earlier this year during the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Try it at your own peril, Steph, you’ve been warned.
