Outrageous NBA star Dennis Rodman seems to think he is the new savior of world peace after his highly bizarre trip to North Korea last week, but full time diplomat John Kerry has warned him not to give up his day job!
“Dennis Rodman was a great basketball player,” the recently appointed Secretary of State diplomatically told NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell Reports — and you can watch video of the interview right here on RadarOnline.com.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported the now retired Chicago Bulls star – who is better known for his gold grillz, rainbow of hair colors, countless tattoos and piercings and crazy antics – described DPRK’s recently anointed Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un, as a “friend for life” after the new best buddies bonded court side during an exhibition game of the Harlem Globetrotters , and went partying together till the wee hours in the communist country’s capital, Pyongyang.
Rodman called his new pal “an awesome guy,” when he returned stateside from the jaunt , which included getting plied with free liquor by the 29-year-old dictator. “Guess what? I love him,” he said of the generous host.
“He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him,” Rodman told incredulous This Week host George Stephanopoulos during an insane interview Sunday. “He said, ‘If you can, Dennis – I don’t want to do war. I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”
Not everyone was as excited about the controversial friendship as Dennis however, with the White House denouncing it as a “celebrity sporting event” for a repressive regime, and suggesting that North Korea should instead focus on the well-being of their own people “who have been starved, imprisoned and denied their human rights.”
The New York Post reports that the rowdy reality star was escorted out of the Time Hotel in midtown Manhattan Sunday after spending hours at the restaurant bar loudly singing the praises of the North Korean dictator, who has vowed to wage war against America, as well as his neighbor, South Korea.
“Dennis was making a total jerk of himself. He wouldn’t leave, and he wouldn’t let anyone talk to him about shutting up, or what an oppressive country North Korea is,” a source told the Post.
