Dennis Rodman offers to 'straighten things out' with North Korea

The 14-year National Basketball Association vet has a well-documented relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and has gone to visit him multiple times.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un talks to NBA great Dennis Rodman in Pyongyang, as the two watch a basketball game, in 2014.

He added: "I don't love Kim".

The ex-NBA superstar made the freakish comments during an interview on Good Morning Britain, earlier today.

The eccentric star has traveled to North Korea several times to be the guest of the dictator.

"I basically hang out with (Kim) all the time. We laugh, we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together", he said on the English morning show, Good Morning Britian. "We hardly talk about politics, and that's the good thing about that", he said.

Rodman, if you'll recall, enjoys a odd affinity with Kim, even choosing to ignore the dictator's brutality to the people under his rule, people who know him told the Chicago Tribune.

Dennis Rodman presents "Trump: The Art of the Deal" to North Korea's Sports Minister Kim Il Guk in June.

"If they could just sit down and have some kind of mutual conversation. and just start a dialogue, I think that'll open a door just a little bit".

Kim is "just like everybody else", Rodman said.

But Trump is unlikely to heed Rodman's advice.

Rodman made it clear he is not defending Kim or his country, but noted his many visits with Kim have given him a "whole different view about the country".

In the recent interview, Rodman also suggested U.S. President Donald Trump contact Kim to put an end to the hostile relations between the countries. I've always said that.

"Explain to us why you don't think he's a danger and a threat?"

Rodman, nicknamed "The Worm" during his playing career and known for his flamboyant character, is considered one of the best defensive players and rebounders in National Basketball Association history.
