Dennis Rodman On Kim Jong-Un: A ‘Good Guy’
We suppose that if you ignore his regime’s network of horrific internal gulags and refusal to grant individuals even the slightest shred of political freedoms, he’s probably a swell guy:
Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, is a “good guy”, a “good-hearted kid” who offers the best tequila to his guests on his private island, according to the former basketball player Dennis Rodman.
Rodman talked about his friendship with the North Korean leader in London to promote a basketball game between a Rodman-selected team and a North Korean team to coincide with Kim’s 31st birthday on 8 January.
“They need money. I’m not doing it for the money. I’m doing it to open a gap between North Korea and the world. And North Korea has a lot to offer. They want to branch out,” Rodman told the Times.
“I’m not saying that the marshal of North Korea is in control. It’s the system that’s been built for years and years and years. And this young kid is trying to do one thing – to open that gap. To do something to make it work.”
