Obama: Tiger Woods 'Betrayed His Family' (VIDEO)

Tiger Woods was one of the many subjects addressed during Wednesday night's rare and interruption-filled Fox News interview with President Obama. As "Special Report" anchor Brett Baier strolled through the White House with the president, the Fox News host asked Obama for his thoughts on Woods' imminent return to golf at the Masters in April.

The president told Baier, "I think that Tiger has acknowledged that he betrayed his family, and that's a personal issue that he's gotta work out. I hope they've worked it out. I'm sure he's still going to be a terrific golfer."

In February, it was reported that Woods had spoken with Presidents Obama and Clinton, but a later clarification revealed that the golfer had spoken only with the former president, and not with Obama.

In January, the president told People, "I don't want to comment on his personal relationship with his wife and family, but I'm a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them."
