Obama ‘Just Brushed Me Off’: Dennis Rodman Tears Up While Reflecting on Years of Sharing NK’s Message

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman teared up during an interview on CNN while discussing his past history advocating for a meeting between former President Barack Obama and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Rodman, who has developed a friendship with Kim over the years, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he tried to arrange a meeting with Trump’s predecessor but was turned away.

“I tried to do that to Obama and Obama didn’t even give me the time of day,” he said as he got emotional. “I said, ‘I have something to say from North Korea.’ He just brushed me off.”

Watch the video below:

Despite Obama’s cold reception to Rodman’s help, he explained that he kept going back to North Korea to show his loyalty and told the world the door “will open.”

“It’s amazing when I said those things […] When I went back home I got so many death threats […] I couldn’t even go home I had to hide out for 30 days,” he recalled through tears.

Rodman added that he was the “only one” who knew things would change and held his head high through the “bullets” that were shot his way.

“Today is a great day for everybody,” he explained.

When Cuomo asked why he chose North Korea, Rodman admitted he was “naive” when he first went over but said he “fell in love” with the country.

As far as Trump’s meeting with Kim is concerned, the former NBA player expressed his confidence that if Trump went in with a “great heart,” he would be successful.

“If Trump could pull this off, more power to him,” he explained.

Rodman, who was in Singapore at the time, hopes that politics can be put aside and that everyone can “get along.”

“Donald Trump’s should take a lot of credit for this because he went out of the box and made this happen,” he shared.

    I admire Dennis Rodman – I’ll bet the reason Obama wouldn’t give him the time of day – was because he (Obama) was jealous of Rodman- and doesn’t want anyone to share his lime light.
