Dennis Rodman broke down in tears talking about North Korea-US situation

Dennis Rodman

The world now looks safe from a nuclear meltdown, but not from a Dennis Rodman live television meltdown.

Say what?

If you told a friend ten years ago that you think that someday Dennis Rodman would be interviewed on CNN on a live broadcast for something unrelated to basketball and instead for what his take is on one of the biggest and most controversial political crises of the 21st century, that friend would have likely quit being your friend.

However, that’s exactly what happened earlier today, when the Hall of Fame power forward went live on CNN for an interview with Christopher Cuomo. Rodman, who is currently in Singapore to witness the historic summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump, immediately broke down in tears while describing his relationship with North Korea’s leader and his experience of being not taken seriously by people back in the United States.

“I got so much bad press. I couldn’t even go home. But I kept my head high, brother. I knew things were going to change. I was the only one. I had no one to hear me, no one to see me, but I knew it. I took those bullets, I took all that.”

How 2018 can that get?

Rodman, while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, also said he got so many death threats upon his return after one of his meetings with Kim that he was forced to go into hiding.

Dennis Rodman is a basketball Hall of Famer, but we have to wonder what his odds are of getting a Nobel Peace Prize in the future.
