Checking with a source close to Dennis Rodman — who is working with the ex-Bulls star on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” — it’s obvious that the self-appointed new BFF of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is clueless about how foolish he looks.
“Dennis is furious about how the media is out to make him look like an idiot,” said the source, who quickly stressed he thinks Rodman’s complimentary remarks about Kim were “very, very ill-advised,” considering North Korea’s record of inhumanity toward its people — a policy this new dictator appears to be continuing, as did his father and grandfather.
“Dennis is all about using basketball to bring our countries [the U.S. and North Korea] together. … He has this completely childlike notion, based on how well HE was treated during his visit. It’s really crazy. … He just should have kept his mouth shut when he got back. But that’s not Dennis’ way.
“And look what happened. … That interview with [George] Stephanopoulos on ABC Sunday was a disaster.
“Fortunately, Dennis’ team finally realized what a monster this had become and canceled his other appearances.”
