There are some people who’ve grown tired of the meme “hold my beer.” If you’re one of those people, I’m sorry. Trigger-warning. Becuase today’s news was terribly stupid. To the point I had to turn off Twitter in order to not stick my head in an oven, then turn it on broil. Well, the afternoon news told the morning news to “hold my beer.” Dennis Rodman of basketball, weird hair, abundant tattoos, used to be with Carmen Electra, fame is joining Rocket Man in Singapore for the Nuclear Beer Fest. But only if totally necessary.
“The Worm” will arrive in the country a day before the June 12 sitdown — and sources said he could even play some sort of role in the negotiations.
According to sources, Rodman thinks Rodman could smooth the waters of diplomacy between Rocket Man and Not Comb-Over. To quote my bro Brodigan “We live in truly stupid times.”
The zany, 6-foot-7 ex-baller — who has struck up an unlikely bromance with the pint-sized, 5-foot-7 Kim, and has visited the rogue regime five times in the past — took some of the credit for getting the two leaders together.
In an April interview with TMZ, Rodman said that Kim didn’t understand the president until he gave the North Korean strongman a copy of Trump’s ghost-written book, “The Art of the Deal,” for his birthday in 2017.
If this tete-e-tete happens, we need photos. Someone take some snaps and get it on the internet. Also, just an idea, matching tattoos for Trump, Kim, and Rodman. I’m thinking the design can be three cartoon bombs all holding hands.
Darren Prince, Rodman’s rep, said no trip to Singapore had been confirmed but that The Worm would be willing to go if his expertise were needed.
“He’s talked about it, but no final trip or plans have been made,” he said. Prince marveled at the treatment Rodman got years ago when he first decided to visit the North at Kim’s invitation.
Okay, what kind of “expertise” does Rodman have? I realize I’m letting my sports naivete show, but I’m not clear how Dennis Rodman is an expert at nuclear negotiations. I understand he was a fine ball-player, but not sure how dribbling down a court translates to denuclearization. Help me.
