Dennis Rodman Says Kim Jong Un Is A “Great Guy” Who Just Wants President Obama To “Call Him”
Dennis Rodman has returned from his bizarre trip to North Korea with an even more bizzare request for President Obama. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Rodman called North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un a “great guy” who just wants President Obama to pick up the phone. What would the pair talk about? Shooting some B-Ball outside of the school of course.
The Huffington Post reports that Rodman said the following:
“He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him. He said, ‘If you can, Dennis . . . I don’t want to do war. I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”
What would Obama and Kim Jong Un talk about? Hoops, of course. Rodman said:
“He loves basketball. And I said, ‘Obama loves basketball.’ Let’s start there.”
Stephanopoulos pressed Rodman about North Korea’s human rights record and the fact that Kim has put 200,000 people in prison camps, plus Kim’s threats to destroy the United States. Rodman seemed to know very little about any of that shockingly. He kept mentioning that Kim Jong Un is only 28 years old and he blamed most of the bad stuff on Kim’s father and grandfather, who led North Korea before him.
Let’s start with basketball though right? All I keep thinking off is this clip from the movie “Tommy Boy”. This truly shows what Rodman had to probably say at at least one point.
