When Dennis Rodman is one of the only allies that the United States has in regard to North Korea, you know something is very wrong in this universe.
Former NBA bad boy Dennis Rodman touched down in North Korea on Tuesday after saying he’s ‘just trying to open a door’ in his first visit since President Donald Trump took office.
Rodman, one of the few people to know both of the nuclear-armed leaders, sported a black T-shirt advertising a marijuana cybercurrency, PotCoin, as he talked to reporters briefly before his flight from Beijing to the North Korean capital.

Rodman has made several trips to Pyongyang to visit North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, and he thinks his former Celebrity Apprentice boss Trump will approve of his latest trip.
It’s at least the fourth trip to North Korea for Rodman, who was previously hosted in 2013 and 2014 by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, a known basketball fanatic. The 56-year-old New Jersey native,who helped win two NBA championships for the Detroit Pistons and three for the Chicago Bulls, is one of a tiny number of Americans to have met Kim and calls the dictator a “friend for life.”
Crazy apparently attracts crazy.
His visits have been controversial given the regime’s record of human-rights abuses that amount to “crimes against humanity,” according to a 2014 U.N. report, and its frequent threats to launch nuclear strikes against the U.S and her allies.
