Dennis Rodman isn't letting a little thing like the execution of Kim Jong-Un's uncle get in the way of his third trip to North Korea!
In fact, he's there right now helping coach their national basketball team, and he's sort of acting like the whole execution thing never happened!
"It has nothing to do with me. Whatever his uncle has done, and whoever's done anything in North Korea, I have no control over that. I mean, these things have been going on for years and years and years. I'm just going over there to do a basketball game and have some fun. People have been saying these things here and there. It doesn't really matter to me. I'm not a politician. I'm not an ambassador."
Wow! There's so much wrong with what he just said that we don't even know where to begin!
But let's get back to the reason he's there in the first place. Basketball!
Dennis is hand-picking a 12-man team to take on a squad of NBA stars for Kim Jong-Un's birthday. The idea is to have the teams go face-to-face for the first half, and then mix up the squads in the second half in hopes of bringing the two countries closer together!
So much for not being an ambassador!!
The only problem is, Dennis is having a tiny issue convincing Amercian basketballers to come to North Korea:
"You know, they're still afraid to come here, but I'm just telling them, you know, don't be afraid man, it's all love, it's all love here. I understand what's going on with the political stuff, and I say, I don't go into that venture, I'm just doing one thing for these kids here, and for this country, and for my country, and for the world pretty much."
Oh, We get it now! He's just trying to change the world! That's all!
Based on his comments alone it seems as though Dennis doesn't fully understand the situation he's in, and with the recent execution of Kim Jong-Un's uncle, his timing couldn't be worse!
