Dennis Rodman absolutely lost his shit during an interview with CNN Tuesday morning.
The former NBA player and crazy person was talking to Chris Cuomo via satellite from North Korea where he is preparing to play a basketball game for his best friend Kim Jong-Un’s birthday.
Cuomo asked Rodman if he would take the opportunity to push the North Korean dictator to release the American Kenneth Bae, who has been detained in the country for more than a year on unknown charges. That’s when a visibly intoxicated and nonsensical Rodman lost his mind.
“Kenneth Bae did one thing… If you understand what Kenneth Bae did. Do you understand what he did in this country?” Rodman asked Cuomo, hinting that Bae has done something illegal.
“No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why?…I would love to speak on this,” Rodman continued while waving his cigar around. “You know, you’ve got 10 guys here, 10 guys here [referring to the other basketball players], they’ve left their families, they’ve left their damn families to help this country, as in a sports venture. That’s 10 guys, all these guys here, do anyone understand that? Christmas, New Year’s…”
Cuomo tried to interject, saying “and we appreciate that.”
Rodman continued to flip out: “I don’t give shit — I don’t give a rat’s ass what the hell you think. I’m saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them… they dared to do one thing, they came here.”
