Dennis Rodman "Doesn't Give A Rat's Ass" What You Think About His 'Friendship' With Kim Jong Un

Tyler Durden's picture


On a satellite interview from Pyongyang, North Korea, former NBA player Dennis Rodman 'lost it' this morning with the anchor from CNN's "New Day" show. Describing his (and his team's) visit to North Korea as a "great trip for the world," Rodman started to get frustrated when questioned about whether he will use the opportunity to speak about Kenneth Bae, an American citizen who has been held in North Korea. "Do you understand what he did?" Rodman exclaimed, "You tell me! You tell me! Why is he held captive?" Having described Kim Jong Un as a "friend for life," Rodman went on to tell the CNN anchor, "I don't give a rat's ass what you think." Ah, the new normal diplomacy. We wonder if Kim's uncle also described him as a 'friend for life.'? As WaPo reports, The White House is not happy.



As The Washington Post reports, The White House is not happy,

White House press secretary Jay Carney was not impressed.


"I'm not going to dignify that outburst with a response," Carney said  during his daily briefing.


Carney reiterated the administration's position that the government of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will continue to face international economic and diplomatic sanctions until it takes steps to place its military and nuclear weapons programs under international monitoring.


"Sports exchanges can be valuable. Sports diplomacy can be valuable," Carney said.  "But this is a private trip, and our focus when it comes to North Korea is on sharpening the choice that that regime faces between further isolation, further economic deprivation ... and taking advantage of the opportunity to rejoin the community of nations to ease that and potentially end that isolation."




"We remain gravely concerned about Kenneth Bae's health and continue to urge [North Korean] authorities to grant his amnesty and immediate release on humanitarian grounds."

the Onion is going to have to close its doors... it can't compete with the shit show that is our world. btw, scary to say this, but i suspect Rodman is a lot more honest than the U.S. government.

If Kim Jong Un had a 'brother', he'd look like Dennis Rodman.

IMO, their is more to 'the Worm' visiting the DPRK then whats on the surface.


Who would think that a weird, cross dressing, former NBA st*r would go visit that isolated country for any 'official business?'

No one.

-Maybe thats why its brilliant.


What? - you dont think he isnt getting debriefed when he comes back into the USA?

I just wonder if the NK national team is going to be executed when they don't win. Or will Rodman and his crew be executed for beating them? Enquiring minds want to know.

Does he dress like that because he thinks he's a woman trapped in a man's body?

Or, does he dress like that because he's a turd trapped in a rat's ass?

I can only agree with you that the US funds China through a massive trade surplus so they can give NK some Australian Iron Ore to exchange for wheat.   So South Korea is stuck paying protection fees to the U.S.

IF the U.S. took care of itself by balancing trade to fix the economy?  North Korea probably woudln't exist.  But proving a point is more important on your part, they don't have no oil and the US needs the work.

Umm... neither the US nor N. Korea has killed anyone, as they're merely abstractions.

"Men in Black" had it right after all.  Dennis Rodman is an alien.  

He and Kim Jong Un both are peas from a pod!

This news is really disturbing.  Not only do I hang on every word out of Rodman's goobers, I was sure he was hanging on mine.

This was a top rebounder in the NBA, people.  We need to pay attention.
