Fox News reports that Dennis Rodman, the former NBA star and longtime friend of Kim Jong Un who has visited North Korea several times, broke down in tears during a televised interview early Tuesday as President Trump and Kim held a historic meeting in a hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island.
In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo that quickly became emotionally charged, Rodman, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, blasted former President Barack Obama for not taking the North Korean leader seriously.
Five years ago, Rodman said, Kim told Rodman “certain things” to relay to Obama concerning potential negotiations, but the former president “didn’t even give me the time of day — he just brushed me off, but that didn’t deter me.”
Meanwhile, another black, well-known, former NBA athlete, Dennis Rodman was seen sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat during his interview with Chris Cuomo on the anti-Trump network.
Watch Chris Cuomo, as he’s forced to interview Dennis Rodman, who has formed an unlikely friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un discuss how he believes that if President Trump goes into the meeting with a great heart, he can cut an historic deal with the dictator in Singapore. Rodman told Cuomo that Trump is “going to do a great job” with the negotiations.
Rodman, who admitted he was “naive” when he first visited the rogue regime, then started weeping and repeatedly dabbed away tears from his eyes as he recounted the blowback he received in the U.S. for visiting Kim.
