Kim Jong Un Rumors
John Salley 100% has the back of his old Bad Boys teammate Dennis Rodman … saying the human rights organization calling for revoking The Worm’s Hall Of Fame status is full of B.S. As we previously reported … The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is upset with Dennis over his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Dennis Rodman has returned from a five-day trip to North Korea, but he did not meet with a man he once called his “friend for life” — Kim Jong Un. The colorful retired basketball player did not speak to reporters waiting for him when he arrived in Beijing after leaving Pyongyang. After a disastrous trip in 2014, Rodman’s fifth journey into North Korea seemed to be something of a redemption tour. It was relatively low-key and passed without major controversy.
Rodman, who landed in Pyongyang Tuesday, was photographed presenting North Korean Sports Minister Kim Il Guk with a copy of Trump’s book, “Trump: The Art of the Deal.” The NBA Hall of Famer is perhaps the only person in the world who has personal relationships with both the US President — he participated on Trump’s pre-presidency reality TV show, “The Celebrity Apprentice” — and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
What could LeBron James possibly have in common with Ivanka Trump, Kim Jong Un, Demi Lovato and Pope Francis? They all were named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2017. The annual list is divided into five categories: pioneers, artists, leaders, icons and titans, where the Cavaliers superstar is listed.
With President Trump going after North Korea, there’s one man who says he can HELP the situation … Dennis Rodman! Of course, The Worm has not only met with Kim Jong-un … but he worked for Trump on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ He’s got his hand in music now too, Rodman’s featured on Mansionz new single — which hit the top of Spotify — called “Dennis Rodman” … of course. He’s the perfect middleman, right? Rodman says he hasn’t spoken with Trump about his experience in Pyongyang … but would love to brief POTUS if he can find the time.
One can only speculate if any of those marijuana friendly peers joined Robinson on Rodman’s aforementioned “basketball diplomacy” squad that entertained Kim Jong Un in North Korea, although it’s unlikely they indulged while visiting the totalitarian dictatorship. The unique excursion and Rodman’s bizarre behavior were widely reported on in the United States. “Anytime you get to go into a country that people rarely have access to, from a historical standpoint, you have to take advantage of that opportunity. As an athlete, I play basketball. I’ve played basketball for a lot of different people, and I never thought of it as anything other than going to play basketball in North Korea,” he said. As workmanlike as Robinson’s approach was, the weirdness of the trip was not lost on him. “It’s like clockwork over there. I compare it to being in The Matrix.”
A Former American basketball player has said that he regrets going on the ‘eerie’ diplomacy trip to North Korea with the controversial Dennis Rodman to meet Kim Jong-un. Former NBA player Vin Baker traveled to North Korea with Rodman and seven additional former NBA All-Star players in January to play an exhibition game against the North Korean basketball team, after which they were introduced to the North Korean leader. According to The Huffington Post, Baker said that he was ‘shocked, surprised, disappointed and hurt’ following the controversial trip, adding that he believes in hindsight, most of the players who went in that trip would have given it a second thought.
