If ever there was a sign that international geopolitics has jumped the shark, this is it. This is absolutely it.
Although he might be familiar to you from playing NBA Jam back in the '90s, or his stint on Love Island or Celebrity Big Brother, Dennis Rodman is now arguably more known for his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. In fact, Matt Cooper - yes, that Matt Cooper - narrated a documentary about the strange relationship between Rodman and Kim Jong Un called Dennis Rodman's Big Bang In Pyongyang.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain yesterday morning, Rodman explained that there's a way to make Un and Trump sit down and negotiate - but it has to happen on a one-to-one basis. "It don't have to be like a friendship type of conversation, just a mutual conversation saying, 'Hi, I would love to engage in some words and politics and over the history of your country and my country and just try to start some dialogue.' I think that'll open up maybe the door just a little bit," said Rodman.
Deep, man. Deep.
Rodman went on, explaining that he really just wants "to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together." Rodman has been pretty unequivocal about his support for Donald Trump, posting on his own Twitter in 2015 that Trump "has been a great friend for many years," having also appeared on Celebrity Apprentice as a contestant in 2009.
The scary part of all this, of course, is that Rodman is arguably the only American who has a direct line to Kim Jong Un. In 2013, former US Deputy Secretary of State Steven Ganyard said that "(there) is nobody at the CIA who can tell you more personally about Kim Jong Un than Dennis Rodman and that in itself is scary."
Seriously, international geopolitics has jumped the shark.
