North Korea Rumors
One of the highest-ranked Army vets believes Dennis Rodman can help make peace with North Korea … saying Donald Trump should seriously consider meeting with the ex-NBA star to smooth things out with Kim Jong-un. TMZ Sports spoke with Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré — who most people remember as the guy who famously led the military recovery efforts during Hurricane Katrina.
In his comments to CNBC, Cuban said Trump needs to be able to take the blowback to his rhetoric. “If he’s going to dish it out, he’s got to be able to take it,” Cuban said. “I don’t expect him to apologize, but if this is the new presidency, where our president wants to mix it up, and obviously he does, whether it’s North Korea — God help us — or sports or me or public figures or anybody, then this is the new reality we live in, and that makes him fair game.”
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.
