Dennis Rodman wants “to straighten things out” between the U.S. and North Korea.
In an interview with the TV show Good Morning Britain, the former NBA star says he’s the guy to prevent war.
Rodman, who’s visited the Asian country five times, explains, “I basically hang out with [Kim Jong Un] all the time. We laugh, we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together. We ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing, we hardly ever talk politics and that’s the good thing.”
He adds that he’s the perfect choice to persuade the dictator from launching a nuclear attack against the U.S. because he’s not “crazy sometimes” like President Trump. (Mercury News)
