Dennis Rodman: America’s favorite new foreign diplomat


RodmanBY SCOTT PHILLIPS

“There is nobody at the CIA who can tell you more personally about Kim Jong-un than Dennis Rodman, and that in itself is scary.” — Col. Steve Ganyard, former deputy assistant secretary of state.

Fresh off a recent trip to North Korea — and spending time with controversial leader Kim Jong-un — former NBA legend Dennis Rodman sat down on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos and gave an interview about his experiences. Yes, somebody let Dennis Rodman speak on television and Dennis wore a suit with imprinted money and a purple Polo hat.

That Tweet says it all: Dennis Rodman representing the United States of America.

America is dumbfounded that Dennis Rodman — the hair-dyeing, photographer-kicking, rebounding menace that captured five NBA championships and made just as many off-the-court headlines — is the first documented American to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Not even Google could get a meeting. Google! Rodman is in North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters for a new HBO series produced by New York-based VICE television.

Of course, Rodman went on television as soon as he got back on American soil — as attention whores tend to do — and sat down with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and gave this legendary television interview.

“There is nobody at the CIA who can tell you more personally about Kim Jong-un than Dennis Rodman, and that in itself is scary.” — Col. Steve Ganyard, former deputy assistant secretary of state.

That quote, which is fucking epic, elicited a prolonged laugh from Rodman before Stephanopoulos peppered him with questions about North Korean foreign policy and Kim Jong-un’s past.

C’mon, George. Rodman was there to hang out with a dictator that loves basketball, loves attention and loves power; three things entirely relateable to “The Worm.”

According to ABC, Rodman and Kim Jong-un went ice skating, saw an aquarium, ate a long dinner and had many drinks. Evidently, Kim Jong-un treats his NBA heroes to activities ideal for a 16-year old couple’s three-month anniversary celebration.

The incredible thing from all of this is that according to Rodman, Kim Jong-un wants to speak to President Obama.

“He asked me to give Obama something to say and do one thing. He wants Obama to do one thing, call him.”– Dennis Rodman

This means the saga of “Dennis Rodman: Foreign Diplomat” will continue as Obama will undoubtedly reach out to Rodman for the lowdown of his sick hang with the North Korean dictator.

Dennis Rodman potentially bringing world leaders together? Hollywood couldn’t even conjure up this kind of ridiculous drama.

Rodman has been criticized for befriending a ruthless dictator that suppresses his citizens, but in the end, “The Worm” just wants everyone to be friends.

Now only if the people of North Korea, banned from Twitter, could read that wonderful insight from their newest hero.
