Dennis Rodman left North Korea Saturday, arriving back in Beijing from Pyongyang while professing his affection to the press for autocratic leader Kim Jong Un. Dennis also angrily brushed off questions about imprisoned American citizen Kenneth Bae, according to CBS News on Sept. 7. Rodman told reporters when asked whether he lobbied for Bae's release, to go ask Obama and Clinton, referring to our President and former Secretary of State using an expletive.
"Ask Obama about that...Ask Hillary Clinton...Ask those (expletive)", Rodman fired back. At one point Dennis even had to be restrained by a member of his entourage, before being ushered into a waiting car.
While on one hand calling the 29-year-old North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un his "friend for life", and using the expletive to refer to the President and Mrs. Clinton, Rodman clearly was agitated about being asked about Kenneth Bae.
Perhaps reporters were grilling the retired NBA star because he took to Twitter in May and pleaded with the North Korean dictator to cut Bae loose.

Additionally, the flamboyant 52-year-old Rodman had indicated he'd ask Kim for the imprisoned American's release on his second trip to the secretive nation this year, according to the Detroit Free Press.
However, ahead of the trip, Rodman did an about face and indicated he had no plans to act as a diplomat or an ambassador on behalf of the United States, nor would he try to help Bae.
With all the understandable bad press Dennis has gotten with this latest trip to North Korea, it may be a good thing he considers Kim such a wonderful guy.
He may soon find himself more welcome there than in the U.S.. What do you think of Rodman's actions?
