First of all, yes, Dennis Rodman is still in North Korea. At this point, he might as well rent a place and stick around for a while. He and a group of former NBA players are in town to play a basketball game against North Korea's National Team for Kim Jong Un's birthday tomorrow.
In an interview, CNN's Chris Cuomo asks Rodman, "You do have a relationship with , you've said it many times, we've seen it demonstrated, for whatever reason. Are you going to take an opportunity, if you get it, to speak up for the family of Kenneth Bae..."
Rodman loses it saying, "if you understand what he did..."
For those of you confused, Kenneth Bae is an American citizen who was arrested in North Korea and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
From the looks of it, it's pretty clear in the interview that he's in North Korea for one thing: the cigars.
The odds that Dennis Rodman is working as a spy for the CIA seem higher than the odds he's playing basketball for world peace.— Terry Aley (@rawveggies) January 7, 2014
Footage from this morning's Rodman CNN interview is currently being shown in North Korea as an ad for their cigar industry.— Jenna Kim Jones (@jennakimjones) January 7, 2014
I'm convinced that when kim jong un told Dennis Rodman he could bring his friends over to play basketball he thought it meant MJ and Pippen— Kal (@WhiskeyKal) January 7, 2014
Looking forward to the 2040 historical account of how the government turned Dennis Rodman into a secret agent to infiltrate North Korea.— Mike Wagner (@prowag) January 7, 2014
North Korea is taking a play out of the old Chicago Bulls playbook. Distract everyone else and get attention using Dennis Rodman. Brilliant.— Jeremy Mathsen (@JiggaJerm) January 7, 2014
