Dennis Rodman Defended His Basketball Diplomacy Visit to North Korea with Former NBA Players, Saying it was a “Great Idea for the World.”
Is this a sign of the Apocalypse … Dennis Rodman defends his visit to North Korea with other former
“useful idiots” NBA players as a part of his “basketball” diplomacy saying it is a “Great Idea for the World.”
So Dennis Rodman is the loose canon and the voice of America in North Korea. Isn’t that special. Rodman claimed his visit and this game was a great idea for the world. Hey Dennis, don’t tell the dead uncle of Kim Jong Un that it was a great idea. We would have liked to have reached him for a comment, but it turns out he has been executed. After seeing Rodman loses his cool with Chris Cuomo, and the unintellectual rant he goes on, I think it is no wonder to anyone why the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, is his friend and he loves his friend.
Watch Rodman go mental … then again, how is that any different than the last 25 years?
The trip takes place just weeks after North Korea shocked the world by announcing the purge and execution of Kim’s once-powerful uncle. There are also concerns for the welfare of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, who’s been detained there for more than a year.
The other former NBA players are due to take part in a controversial basketball game on the birthday of Kim Jong Un, the country’s young, unpredictable leader. The friendly contest with North Korea’s team is planned for Wednesday, when Kim is believed to turn 31.
Apparently referring to Kim, Rodman said, “I love my friend. This is my friend.”
Asked if he would take the opportunity to ask North Korean leaders about Bae, Rodman suggested the Korean-American had done something wrong but did not say what that was.
Just how ignorant are the former NBS basketball players who accompanied Rodman to North Korea, maybe the following statement will give you an idea. Really? Do you keep up with current events there buddy? Let alone, who thinks that it is ever a good idea to do anything that Dennis Rodman would come up with?
Smith said they had no idea that the negative press “would extend this far.”
“We’re apologetic we did not know that it was going to take this type of negative spin on what we were doing because we’re not politicians, we’re not ambassadors,” Smith said.
