Dennis Rodman headed back to North Korea to ‘free’ Kenneth Bae, says ‘Obama can’t do s***’

Dennis Rodman says he’s returning to North Korea in August to visit his friend, the country’s totalitarian leader Kim Jong Un and hopes to be influential to getting US citizen Kenneth Bae released from his jail term.

In comments to TMZ, the former Bulls forward suggested his March trip may have led to an easing of tensions, asking whether Kim Jong Un eventually “put the missiles back in storage.”

dennis-rodman-kim-jong-un-kenneth-bae-north-koreaNorth Korea moved its missiles away from their launch sites only this week after a period of heightening tensions. He acknowledged it was “going to be difficult” to secure the release of American prisoner Kenneth Bae, which he called on Twitter for Kim to do earlier this week.

He told TMZ the dictator was his friend and “that’s about it,” pointing out he wasn’t a diplomat and blasting  Obama for not talking to Kim himself.

“We got a black president [who] can’t even go talk to [Jong-un] … Obama can’t do s**t, I don’t know why he won’t go talk to him.”

Rodman continued saying, “Obama? F**k him!,” and then reminded everyone: “I’m not a diplomat.”

North Korea has repeated the Bae will not be released and is not a bargaining chip to force US conversations or a visit from a top flight diplomat.

Bae was arrested and sentenced to 15 years in a labor camp, which prompted a Rodman response this week.

Rodman tweets, “I’m calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him “Kim”, to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose.”

The Spring visit by Rodman resulted in the former NBA star praising the leader, claiming to be his friend now.
