(INTELLIHUB) — Former basketball champion ad reality star Dennis Rodman is expected to arrive in Singapore one day ahead of the 12 June summit in which U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un are set to meet and rumor has it Rodman may even play a role in the talks.
Over the years, the cross-dressing ex-baller has became close with North Korea’s fearless leader and has even held exhibition basketball games in which both North Korean players and American players played on the same teams with one another which was previously banned by the state.
And let’s not stop just there, the controversial celebrity deserves big props for the work he has already put in when he initialized a diplomatic dialogue between two feuding nations. It was something that had never been done before in U.S. history. Rodman became the first American to meet the new North Korean leader when he did so back in 2013 for his HBO TV show.
Rodaman was grilled by the mainstream media upon his return and a few comments he made drove liberals wild at the time.
“I don’t condone what he [Kim Jong-un] does — but as far as a person he’s my friend,” Rodman told ABC News after his return to the states. That one, and the “he’s a great guy” comment are the two pundits on the left gravitated to most.
These comments were edited down into soundbites and echoed for days by the establishment controlled media but what the media didn’t want the American people to know was that Kim Jong-un actually invited President Barack H. Obama to “call” him on the phone in an attempt to reach out but the Obama Admin refused to pick up the phone in an effort to keep the proverbial gears of war turning like they always did.
Interesting times. Let’s see how it all plays out. Stay tuned to Intellihub.com for updates.
