Dennis Rodman On His New BFF Kim Jong-Un: “He’s Very Humble… He’s Just A Great Guy”

If we’ve learned nothing else from this bizarre story, it’s that when Dennis Rodman considers you a friend, he has your back no matter what.

Rodman sat down with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” to discuss the Hall of Famer’s visit to North Korea and his unlikely new friendship with Kim Jong-un, specifically bringing up North Korea’s human rights record. Surprisingly, Rodman brought an interesting point to the table.

“I don’t condone that. I hate the fact that he’s doing that. I didn’t talk about that. I saw people respected him, his family. He’s only 28. He’s not his dad. He’s not his grandpa. He is 28 years old. He’s very humble. He’s a very humble man. He don’t want war, that’s one thing he don’t want. He loves power. He loves control, because of his father, you know, stuff like that. But he’s just…he’s a great guy. He’s just a great guy. You sit down and talk to him.”

Rodman went on to excuse North Korea’s death camps, saying that “We (the United States) do the same things here.” Cool point, Dennis.

    The US killed more innocents (Iraq war of lies)in the past 10 years than any other country. Abu Grhaib, Guantanamo, Bagram are not holiday resorts! Please!

    He’s a humble guy — he praised his father’s immense golf talent by saying that he (the son) only hit 4 holes in one the first time he played golf, half of his dad’s — what a humble guy — he loves power and control — what a nice guy — Dennis, you put the Worm in worm.

    Don’t forget the privately administered for profit prison system, yes folks we do have prison camps, p.s. I love how the reporter scoffs at that notion. In honor of Mr. Rodman I’ll adjust the old adage and say, if it looks like a worm and squirms like a worm….here’s a little more bedtime reading: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/26/opinion/blow-plantations-prisons-and-profits.html?_r=0
