Rodman to “visit friends” in North Korea

Local News

Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea for the fifth time in five years.  The former NBA star says, “I’m just here to see some friends and have a good time.”

Once again, Rodman is drawing criticism for palling around with the country’s controversial leader.  Rodman, who was a cast member on two seasons of President Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” says his goal is to create a dialogue between the two nations, and that he is in the rare position of being friends with both men.

The nation’s infamous leader, Kim Jong-Un is accused of starving his nation and subjecting its residents to slave labor and concentration camps.  Most recently, a 22 year old American who was imprisoned in North Korea and sentenced to 15 years of heavy labor for attempting to steal a political banner from a hotel, was sent back to America after suspiciously “slipping” into a coma for over a year shortly  after the day of his trial.
