Dennis Rodman Has Emotional Breakdown, Weeps With Joy Over Summit In Live Interview

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, one of only a handful of people who had met both President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un before this week's summit, had an on-camera emotional breakdown during a longwinded 20-minute interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo from Singapore.

The interview began just minutes after Trump and Kim shared their historic handshake; an always "hard-hitting" CNN then went live with former Hall of Famer, Rodman, who traveled to Singapore under a sponsorship from Potcoin, to get his take on the events even though he wasn't attending the summit in any official capacity whatsoever.

Rodman, clad in his promotional Potcoin t-shirt and "Make America Great Again" hat, started talking about his relationship with Kim and his expectations for the historic summit, insisting once again that Kim is someone "who wants to enjoy his life, who wants his people to enjoy this life."

About halfway through the interview, Rodman began to cry as he recounted the abuse he received at the hands of both Obama and the public back in 2013, when his trips to North Korea at the invitation of the young new dictator drew widespread scorn. According to Rodman, after his return from North Korea, he couldn't go back to his house, and instead had to go into hiding for 30 days because of death threats. Despite the harsh reception, he insisted that Kim Jong Un was a benevolent leader who wanted the best for his people, but had been "misunderstood" by the international community.

As a reminder, during a visit to North Korea last  June, Rodman reportedly gave Kim  a copy of Trump's "Art of the Deal."

"I knew things were gonna change...but I took those bullets...everybody came at me and I am still standing," Rodman said, his face covered in large sunglasses - though tears could still be seen streaming down his face. "And today is a great day for Singapore, Tokyo, China everybody. For you to see it - I'm so happy."

Rodman said he encouraged President Trump to "show his heart" to Kim, whom Rodman described as a "big kid" who just wants to have fun. The basketball player also revealed that Trump reached out to him through a secretary before the summit to say that he is "very proud" of him.

"Just a big kid who wants to have fun" and "he insisted that Kim Jong Un was a benevolent leader who wanted the best for his people, but had been "misunderstood" by the international community".

This is the guy who executes people with an anti-aircraft battery, yes? Killed his uncle? Killed his brother?

"This is the guy who executes people with an anti-aircraft battery, yes? "...

 

Dude... at least it would be quick....

America meanwhile injects a cocktail of unproven chemicals into death row inmates & watch them die slowly & suffering...

Of course America can do quick death, such as droning innocents in far away countries, but you don't count them ... do you...

Hypocracy anyone ??

😕😕

Honestly? No. I seem to recall thinking if not saying that Rodman was a traitor for going to North Korea. Not sure if I felt that way or not, but I could see how I would.

You need to understand that Trump is a far better, more effective man than I am. There is no shame in that. Only motivation to become better.

Stop your grandstanding... the truth really IS - who are the folks that decided long ago to bolster the position of Pol Pot, Kim Jung Il and his predecessors  by acting like bleeding hearts for socialist dictators?  They gave aid and comfort to these bankrupt ideologies.  Go read about the Frankfort School - Columbia Uni. Herbert Marcuse, and Theodor Adorno et al..   and you will see that we have allowed our own *Germans*, here in the states, to socially engineer our country from within.  Thanks to ABC,CBS,NBC, Disney, BBC, Comcast, Viacom, and many other corporate factions- we are now soooo surprised by the fact that something which should've happened long ago by natural forces- is finally coming to fruition- peace with N Korea.

Libya, Syria, Ukraine, and a restart of the Cold War

Give that man a Nobel Peace Prize!

--

Avoids an obvious trap to start a war with Russia, twice.
Wants to talk to Russia, and back out of the new Cold War his clown predecessor started.
Looks like he has brokered a peace deal with North Korea

Oh that guy's a fascist warmonger!

Liberals, will someone please find a cure!

I saw an Obama family photo on OAN (an awesome news network like Fox without the editorial). Could you remind me again?  Which one is the 'male'? 

Michelle (Mike in French) or the one with the ears who looks like if he had a gray haired butch cut, he could be any of a number of soy drinking anti trump progressive activist bitches MSNBC uses to support their "Trump is a misogynist" narrative ... fair and unbalanced.

Obama has the exact personality of many closet gay men I've known thru work or just being alive... snarky, condescending, self-enlightened fags who put you down for being too male as a defense mechanism for their own false pretense. Well they do have one up on most people... they know what its like to boink a brother.  If that's what it takes for some to feel worthy (or have an identity), I will remain chearfully unenlightened, thankyouverymuch!
