Dennis Rodman Sings 'Happy Birthday' to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un: VIDEO


Former NBA star Dennis Rodman sang "Happy Birthday" to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un today at an exhibition basketball game featuring a team of American basketball players.


It's the latest in a series of bizarre videos to come out of Rodman's trip, the other two being confrontational interviews with CNN host Chris Cuomo and a group of reporters at the Beijing airport, all of whom demanded to know why Rodman won't address human rights abuses with the North Korean dictator.

The basketball game was a birthday gift for Kim Jong-Un. Critics of Rodman are now suggesting that Rodman may have brought illegal luxury gifts to the North Korean leader.

One Free Korea writes:

Writing at The Weekly Standard today, Dennis Halpin informs us that Dennis Rodman (no relation) was bringing more than his august presence to Kim Jong Un’s birthday party. Halpin, citing a “diplomatic source” he understandably won’t name but says is reliable, claims that Rodman was also carrying “several hundred dollars’ worth of Irish Jameson whiskey,” “European crystal, an Italian suit for him, and Italian clothing, a fur coat, and an English Mulberry handbag” for Kim’s wife, Ri Sol Ju...

...In his article, Halpin notes that bringing luxury goods into North Korea is prohibited by U.N. Security Council resolutions (several of them, in fact). Those sanctions were first imposed in 2006, after North Korea’s first nuclear test, as a response to Kim Jong Il’s obscene luxury purchases as his people went hungry.

  4. I never liked or respected Rodman as a basketball player, and now even less as a cultural traitor. He should be prosecuted and jailed.

  6. Does anyone really think that a monstrous dictator would have to rely on a very public visit from a has-been US athlete to obtain luxury goods? Kim Jong-Un has access to whatever he wants, whenever he wants. It takes nothing more than a call to Russia.

  7. Will he ostracized on return the the US? Most certainly not. Short of committing murder himself he has a race card.

  10. Can somebody please just get up on a stepladder and slap him?

  11. Thanks for proving my point, Derrick.
    Yes, before anyone criticizes him or his entire choom gang, I would tread very lightly, poodles. Lest the 'r' word be thrown your way.

  12. Everybody has been waiting for it a long time, but this time Dennis Rodman has finally lost his mind.
    Dennis, there's help available out there......

  13. For an encore he sang Who Let the Dogs Out.

    ...and the other players sang "Un did, Un did" in the background.

  15. Mike, why does race even have to factor into it? Dirtbag.

  16. Mikey --

    So we should just pretend that all of these disgusting, money-grubbing traitors aren't all black?

  18. @ "So we should just pretend that all of these disgusting, money-grubbing traitors aren't all black?"

    Yeah, just like all the American traitors who put their money in Swiss banks and the Caymon Islands.

    I miss Mitt Romney.

  19. what? he doesn't play basketball diplomacy with his stupid cigar? bozo.

  20. I predict an SNL skit this weekend.

  21. Prior to his North Korean visits, I admired Rodman for being unique and resisting the pressure to conform to everyone else's standards.

    Today, I kind of wish Kim Jong-Un had put Rodman in one of his "work camps". Wipe that smile right off his face, it would.

  22. @Mike and others:

    One can judge the content of a man's character and it not have anything to do with race. Rodman deserves scorn whether he black, yellow, purple, or white.

    Posted by: Rodney Wollam | Jan 8, 2014 1:11:26 PM

  23. Exactly Rodney Wollam; Rodman being black has nothing to do with his recent acts of insanity. I just love the rainbow color blindness of the LGBT community. (Saying with bitter sarcasm)

    Posted by: THurts | Jan 8, 2014 1:26:25 PM

  24. Rodman is disgusting, and he has lost his moral compass. Let him go to back to North Korea and stay there. I'm sure it won't take long for is "buddy" to execute him.

  25. just like marilyn monroe at jfk's birthday.
