North Korea 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.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has started a petition on change.org calling for the NBA to remove Dennis Rodman from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame following his praise and defense of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. In the petition, the foundation said that Rodman has consistently defended Jong-un, who Rodman calls his “friend for life”.
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.
He did not mention whether US President Donald Trump was aware of the visit, but said: “I’m pretty sure he’s pretty much happy with the fact that I’m over here trying to accomplish something that we both need.”
