Basketball hall of famer, crazy person, and prospective foreign diplomat Dennis Rodman is continuing to wedge himself into American relations with North Korea. Rodman infamously went on a publicity stunt to North Korea earlier this year and palled around with dictator Kim Jong Un, appearing in public with a man who operates one of the most oppressive governments in the world. After returning to the states, Rodman has more or less acted as an independent conduit between North Korea and the USA. Even for Dennis Rodman, this was unexpected.
This week, Rodman tweeted that he hoped Kim Jong Un would "do him a solid" and free an American prisoner in North Korea, Kenneth Bae, who has been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor by the regime:
I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him "Kim", to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose.— Dennis Rodman (@dennisrodman) May 7, 2013
Now, via TMZ, Rodman is taking his own brand of diplomacy straight to the top by ripping President Barack Obama himself for his supposed inability to get anything done with North Korea. Rodman is apparently distressed that Obama can't find it in his heart to be nice and chummy with the dictator. He told TMZ:
"We got a black president that can't even go talk to Kim, how about that one. I'll put it like this - Obama can't do sh*t."
Rodman also claims he's going back to North Korea later this year to personally talk to Kim Jong Un about freeing Kenneth Bae. He also claims responsibility for the country removing missles from potential launch positions. Seriously. Dennis Rodman, yes, that Dennis Rodman, is taking credit for subduing the threat of war on the Korean peninsula.
When getting into his car, a TMZ rep asked about President Obama once again and Rodman replied - "[expletive] him!"
Cussing out the leader of the free world - not quite the definition of diplomatic.
During his playing career, I could have imagined Dennis Rodman doing any number of zany things once he decided to end his basketball playing days. Acting in those God awful original SyFy movies. Dedicating his life to professional wrestling. Living in a van out in the wilderness of Alaska to "find himself." Never would I have imagined this world in which Dennis Rodman actually thinks of himself as a foreign diplomat to a country that once earned designation as being part of the Axis of Evil.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a response from President Obama to The Worm, but I look into the future and wonder whether our world is crazy enough to see Dennis Rodman's name included in the history books of our grandchildren and great-grandchildren for his North Korean adventure. As it stands now, nothing would surprise me.
He is right but is still a complete waste of space! Barry is less than sh*t, anyone with common sense knows this. Too damn worried about getting oil from sand instead of from our own resources. Too busy on vacay to save American lives. Too busy trying to remove our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights to see all the other hotbed issues.
Fuck Barry, Fuck Rodman!
@ speedle I am glad you use the word seems. The Syrians were hated by Saddam why would he have given them something they might use back at him? Be careful which media you get your info from as it is an indicator of your depth of knowledge
It's downright cruel to keep reporting on this poor fool's antics. He should be institutionalized . . . or at least confined to a dark corner somewhere.
If we're looking to send a slightly bat-shit crazy defensive stopper to North Korea to soothe hostilities, isn't Metta World Peace the obvious coice?
magnum 50, is that the only mind you think with? You are classic uneducated, Clinton had Iraq by the Kahonies. No fly zones, no trade with anyone. He didn't start a lie like Bush to get Americans killed.
Rodman never served his country. He can't say a thing, doubt if he even votes.
check your facts.
It was also Clinton and the Demo Congress that also voted to send troops....on information developed by the Clinton Admin.
He also believed there were WMDs in IRAQ......but because the UN peacekeepers sent to look for them were stalled by the IRAQ government and the UN didn't have the balls to do anything until the weapons were all moved to Syra....
Just trade Rodman for Bae. The U.S. wins and North Korea gets another empty headed buffoon to add to their Kim collection.
Once a clown, always a clown....He's the reason I quit buying Converse shoes...don't want any association with Rodman...if he can get the American prisoner freed, more power to him....otherwise, please follow the old Chinese proverb, "It is best to be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!"
Considering Obama's incompetence, along with the incompetence of each of his appointments, consulting with Rodman might be an improvement for the current administration. Have to admit, though, something seriously unprintable comes to mind...
@Rodman: You can get away with ripping Obama in the U.S., why don't you go to North Korea and rip Kim Jong Un to see what happens?
To begin with I'm sure the President is quite happy to provide Kim Jung Un a "volunteer diplomat," especially someone of such towering intellect in Ambassador Dennis Rodman. We definitely have the right imbecile for this job! Can you imagine what those two idiot's could figure out alone in a room watching old Chicago Bulls highlight reels??? Rodman is so clever.
Well, it appears to me that Rodman seems to have accomplished more with North Korea in 5 months than Obama has done in 5 years.
@KaliBoltWolf Nut'S misguided misinformed of the fox news era lost and not knowing.
@FredDick Your name fits you , perfectly !
@zroyer1988 you got that right !! The Worm for Prez in 2016 !
@wkkortas Ok Obama, Rodman and Artest (I refuse to use his latest made up name) to North Korea to stay.
@Frank Fox Get with the latest updates Fox. It seems those WMDs that "Bush lied about (along with half the democratic party)" are resurfacing exactly where most intelligence suspected they were sent, Syria. So come up with some new BS Fox.
@Frank Fox Calm down, Frankie. You ignorance is showing.
@PaulOhioSprtzfanSink At least Uncle Ted has common sense. Rodman, not so much!
@PaulOhioSprtzfanSink I think you meant "their" instead of "there". That's OK: Join the Obama administration.
@magnum50 Most idiots don't want to look at the Dems for any fault. I was serving when Clinton was in office and he started the whole shit storm (Desert Storm) to save oil interests in Kuwait and fuck with Saddam. If we forget our history, we are doomed to repeat it!
@mikeingray I totally agree.
I guess George Bush had competence when he send us to Iraq for supposedly weapons of mass destruction. It is inept people like you that has the world in the mess it right now. If you check history, you will see that under your dumpblican presidents we have gone to wars for the benefit of putting a dollar in the pockets of a chosen few. You my friend just help them along with the garbage that they sell, by buying it all up and swallowing it. It is only the Democratic presidents have done good to restore life and liberty for all. Check the facts.
@JoeClam Then he can spend his Free (??) time in a North Korean prison.
@GeorgeBlackmore You are correct! But Rodman fits right in with the lack of intellect shown in Barry's chosen.
Or Eisenhauer - Kennedy- Johnson - Nixon - Ford - Carter - Reagan - Bush - Clinton - Baby Bush, in 50 plus years You Bigoted reprobate.
Or Eisenhauer - Kennedy- Johnson - Nixon - Ford - Carter - Reagan - Bush - Clinton - Bush in 50 plus years You Bigoted reprobate.
Obama to His Credit,as with our Previous Presidents of the United States,Doesn't negotiate with North Korea, hasn't been done since Korean War.Keep watching Rodman metfan41,should brush up on World events . None Of the Presidents. Thats Reason they aren't overly fond of Obama or You. N.Korea would like to Nuke YOU!.Comprehend??
@metfan41 …Right, methfan! And, more in 5 months than Dubya did in 10 YEARS!
Keep thinking that way. It definitely shows your ignorance. You are most likely one of the first into the camps. But, then again, you might enjoy that.
I am truly saddened by the lack of common sense shown by my fellow Americans.
@Topazinator whoops..not real big on some grammer but I usaully try to get the right there,thier,lol
@Peacefull925 You have chosen to forget history. You are part of the problem and will continue to be until you pull your head out of Barry's ass, use common sense and pay attention to the reality around you. Enjoy your ignorance...enjoy the bliss.
@Peacefull925 You, sir or madam, are an idiot and exemplify exactly what is wrong with this country (besides Rodman being a spokesperson). FDR=Democrat (WWII). Kennedy/Johnson=Democrats (Vietnam). Democrats were also responsible for fighting the Civil War against the North (you know, as slaveholders). Not that I believe these distinctions actually hold merit. I'm just pointing out that it's asinine comments such as yours that make our country so polarizing. To put a label like Republican or Democrat on an the face of an argument to proves not only your own ignorance, but the ignorance of much of the rest of this country. And shame on you for using such provocative and fallacious statements such as "check the facts" like that makes you right; especially under a moniker such as "Peaceful". Do the rest of the country a favor and shoot yourself before you speak in a public forum. Or you could actually learn something before you claim to know it as "fact", but that's WAY too much to ask.
I'm so sorry, I sincerely apologize. I will check with you first the next time I wish to exercise any of my constitutional rights. I will go sit in the corner now while you deposit some more money into your teacher's credit union.
@AndrewDavis1 You people crack me up. How did I insult you? How am I misguided when I showed you facts? If you have CHOSEN to ignore the truth about the puppet king and those he and his cronies and the MSM foist upon the American people, then I have no use for you. I truly feel sorry for you and yours!
@KaliBoltWolf you've chosen false over fact this is the blindness of a dysfunctional form of thinking the truth is only as the twisted belief past down from generation too generation stuck in one mode one direction your being dismissive with insults but no proven facts or logic screams dysfunction and when it makes no sense I leave it where it's at stuck under a Chosen form of dysfunction CHOSEN TO BE LIMITED
@peacemonger @Peacefull925 It is so common to see retards like Peaceful trying to use "facts" in their arguments. It would be funny but these are the idiots that helped the fraudulent election of Barry. They don't fit into the quote, "Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it," because they CHOSE to ignore history, which is absolutely insane.
Heaven help us!
