White House Slams Dennis Rodman


north-korean-leader-kim-jong-unIt doesn’t sound like President Obama will not be giving Kim Jong-Un a call any time soon.

Today, press secretary Jay Carney denounced former NBA player Dennis Rodman’s bizarre trip to North Korea last week to dine and watch basketball with the hermit kingdom’s leader–a man Rodman later professed to loving.

“Instead of spending money on celebrity sporting events to entertain the elites of that country, the North Korean regime should focus on the well-being of its own people, who have been starved, imprisoned and denied their human rights,” Carney said. The State Department has declined to debrief Rodman, and struck a similar tone in comments a few days ago. So much for basketball diplomacy. Read more at The Washington Post.

  1. Dennis Rodman is not a parody of the reasons of American presence in so much that he stays up late in his underroos trying to remove his own curses from the world. I think that the reality of this situation is that a cool little guy like Rodman being welcomed to North Korea is a sign that this young play pal of the future might be willing to slide a little bit for the possibility of some more western influences and culture. And that is a good thing. We can use that as leverage and our possibilities are going to expand. But Rodman is a really remotely interesting guy at best but still seems to have some confidence that his day is being well spent. Either way, give it to Rodman as the little baby who has found a new pal. I commend his almost American Efforts.

  2. rodman is a total loser. he has no money left and hangs out in bars waiting for people to buy him drinks. not exactly a trustworthy statesman. i think he should stay in north korea.

  3. If anyone listened to Dennis Rodman on the news when he was interviewed by ABC news, you can see how this guy has no brains, makes no sense, and can’t answer one question straight. so….his opinion is worthless.
