Former Chicago Bulls forward–and star of Double TeamDennis Rodman called out President Obama for not talking to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. Speaking with TMZ, Rodman scolded the president for not engaging with Rodman’s friend.

We got a black President can’t even go talk to him, how about that one?…I’ll put it like this, Obama can’t do s***. I don’t know why he won’t do it. So do that bulls***.


Earlier this week, Rodman attempted to get Kim Jong-Un to release Kenneth Bae, an American sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.  Via Twitter, the former NBA star reached out to the North Korean dictator saying:

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.

Rodman’s friendship with Kim Jong-Un may not be enough to release the 44-year-old Bae. He is accused of plotting to overthrow the  government, and while the U.S. has called for his release, the North insists he has committed “hostile acts.” While on a trip to North Korea back in March, Rodman says, the two men grew close–claiming on ABC’s This Week  that Kim Jong-Un wanted President Obama to give him a call.  “He said, ‘If you can, Dennis–I don’t want [to] do war.  I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”

Rodman plans to return to North Korea this summer.
