President Trump has been on a tear lately against everyone trying to undermine his journey to Make America Great Again.
Trump was ridiculed by the liberal sports media for disinviting the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles because many of their players used their NFL status as a platform to infuse liberal politics into sports.
And now Trump just disinvited this NBA legend from a major game-changing event.
Dennis Rodman is an NBA legend with five championships.
The Hall of Fame power forward was one of the best defenders and rebounders to ever play the game.
Rodman is also infamous for his lavish wardrobe and multicolored hair.
Oddly, Rodman became good friends with Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, and loosely became a sort of diplomatic bridge between the U.S. and the rogue regime.
Rodman developed a close relationship with Jong Un and had encouraged then-President Barack Obama to solve the longstanding tensions between the two countries.
Unsurprisingly, Obama didn’t listen and refused to be diplomatic with Jong Un.
Rodman told Sports Illustrated in 2013,
“My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries. Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama’s] job. But I’ll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong.”
This is probably why Rodman endorsed Trump on the 2016 campaign trail, which was a complete surprise to his peers.
Sure, Trump and Jong Un have had a rocky relationship for the last 18 months, but it looks as though the tides might be starting to turn after Trump put him and his dictatorial regime in its place.
A summit in Singapore between the two leaders is about to happen with the hopes that Trump can encourage Jong Un to denuclearize.
Rodman was filled with excitement and announced that he would attend the meeting, but Trump said not fast.
“I like him. He’s a nice guy. But he’s not invited,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office during his meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe before the G-7 Summit.
But Rodman is planning on attending anyway.
Rodman wrote on Twitter Friday, “I’ll give whatever support is needed to my friends, @realDonald Trump and Marshall [sic] Kim Jong Un.”
In another tweet, Rodman, who competed on “Celebrity Apprentice,” says he’s honored to be cherished by Trump.
Rodman said of Trump, “He’s one of the best negotiators of all time and I’m looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit.”
If you’ve ever seen a picture between Rodman and Jong Un, they are always laughing, and you can tell they have a mutual affection for each other.
It might not be a bad idea for Rodman to visit Singapore so that he can encourage Jong Un to do the right thing and listen to Trump.
But should he be anywhere near these leaders while they discuss such heavy stakes?
Maybe afterwards would be wise, but until then, Rodman needs to leave the negotiating to Trump.
