“Dennis Rodman: Kim Jong Un Wants President Obama to ‘Call Him’

In his first interview since returning to the U.S. from an unprecedented visit to North Korea last week, former NBA star Dennis Rodman said he bears a message for President Obama from the country’s oppressive leader, Kim Jong Un.

“He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him,” Rodman told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week.” “He said, ‘If you can, Dennis – I don’t want [to] do war. I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”

The athlete also offered Kim some diplomatic advice for potential future talks with President Obama.

“[Kim] loves basketball. And I said the same thing, I said, ‘Obama loves basketball.’ Let’s start there,” Rodman said.

Rodman’s comments come just days after the basketball star shocked the world with an unexpected trip to Pyongyang, North Korea, becoming the first known American to publicly meet with the mysterious Kim since he assumed command of the totalitarian nation after the death of his father, Kim Jong-Il in 2011.

The young leader has defied U.N. sanctions by continuing to develop North Korea’s nuclear arms and missile program, which he says is aimed at the U.S.

Kim is often regarded as one of the world’s most oppressive leaders, presiding over prison camps and allowing millions of his own people to starve.

Rodman likely now has more firsthand impressions of Kim than any other American. He offered some insight to Kim’s personality this morning.

“He loves power. He loves control,” Rodman said, of his new “friend.” “But guess what? He doesn’t want war. That’s one thing he doesn’t want.”

Yay! Professional Baskelball’s Hottest Player Is Back Sporting a New Look. Manu Ginobili, Hope You Get a Fathead This Year!


Manu, you’re Mr. Basketball!  I’m your number one fan! Luv the new macho player look!  Fatherhood agrees with you. Perhaps this year you get your own Fathead. — @goodolewoody

“I am in favor of gay marriage … specially of the rights … needed by people who are equal before the law … and it doesn’t affect the rest of society … it doesn’t, if they are gays … yes? Let them be and do whatever they want, I am in favor,” Ginobli said.

Now here’s wishing that the interview would have ended there. Because Ginóbili was asked a follow up question about gay adoption (also legal in Argentina now), and on that subject Ginóbili was a little mixed. Not that he’s against gay adoption; he just doesn’t have all the information he needs to give a solid opinion.

“Adoption is much more delicate,I don’t feel I have the qualifications, I don’t know which studies have been done, if there is any background.  I know that, I believe – I don’t know, as an outside observer, without knowledge of what scientific data there is out there – that for a baby it should be better to be with two dads than to be in an orphanage,” Ginóbili added.
