This Former Basketball Star Wants to ‘Straighten Things Out’ Between US, Kim Jong Un

Good news on the North Korea situation: Dennis Rodman is doing his best to smooth things over.

The former basketball star recently shared details from his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an interview with “Good Morning Britain.” Is Rodman’s karaoke buddy about to attack the U.S. with nuclear weapons? Glenn and Stu listened to the odd interview and analyzed the North Korean threat on radio Thursday.

“Just try to start some dialogue; I think that’ll open up doors just a little bit,” Rodman said, describing how he and Kim talk, laugh and sing karaoke together while ignoring politics. His solution for President Donald Trump was to have a conversation with Kim about their respective countries and histories.

“’We don’t talk politics, you know, or the hundreds of thousands of people he’s got starving in concentration camps,’” Glenn paraphrased Rodman’s description. “’We just hang out and talk about the important things.’”

Stu noted that the biggest elephant in the room would be North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. While the communist country’s human rights violations are horrifying, North Korea is a threat to the U.S. because Kim has continued to build the hermit regime’s nuclear weapons arsenal and test intercontinental ballistic missiles.

GLENN: It's not that the world is upside down. It's just the maps have been wrong. And Dennis Rodman is our hero. This is -- I mean, this makes sense. Dennis Rodman is the guy who is going to come in and save us. I don't know if you saw, he did an interview in England about Kim Jong-un, and he is the guy to send in.

Now, that may sound crazy, but once you listen to him, you realize, "No, we need to listen to him a little bit more."

VOICE: You spent a lot of time with Kim Jong-un.

Is he mad? Is he stupid? How would you describe him as a human being?

DENNIS: You know, it's amazing how we became such good friends with Russia all of a sudden, with Donald Trump.

And for years and years, over the course of time, we became such a good -- have a great relationship with Russia all of a sudden in America. But for some reason, with North Korea, we have a big issue. And for me to go over there to see him as much as I have, I basically hang out with him all the time. We laugh. We sing karaoke. We do a lot of cool things together.

GLENN: Okay. Stop. Stop.

STU: This is awesome so far.

GLENN: I don't know if you can categorize karaoke as cool ever. I mean, I just don't think so. Yeah, we do a lot of things. You know, two guys, two grown men, you know, we just hang out, do karaoke. I -- no, uh-uh.

STU: Wow, you really have stopped drinking, haven't you? Okay. All right. It's now confirmed.

GLENN: I have. No, I don't think that's -- that's cool. And, you know, we just hang out. We play karaoke. And, you know, we don't talk politics, you know, or the hundreds of thousands of people that he's got starving in concentration camps. You know, we just hang out and talk about the important things.

STU: It's not really an uplifting conversation, the whole concentration camp thing.

GLENN: No, but maybe it's something that you might want to bring up.

DENNIS: We ride horses. We hang out and go skiing. And we hardly ever talk politics. And that's the good thing about that.

GLENN: Yeah.

DENNIS: To me, I think if the president even tries to reach out for Kim, I think it would be a great possibility things could happen. If Donald Trump, they just sit down and have some type of mutual conversation -- it don't have to be like a friendship conversation, just a mutual conversation, say, "Hi, I would love to engage in some words and politics and over the history of your country and my country."


DENNIS: And just try to start some dialogue. I think that would open -- maybe the door a little bit.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Because, you know, we -- I want to hear the history of our country and your country. And the lack of concentration camps in our country and the reliance on the concentration camps in your country.

STU: The plethora of concentration camps in --

GLENN: Yeah. I don't know why, maybe it's just me, but the whole concentration camp thing seems important.

STU: It does. Although, I don't think that's the problem here honestly. The problem here is fundamentally, they want to remain a nuclear power, and we are saying we don't want them to be a nuclear power. And if you can't bridge that gap -- and this is what, by the way, Russia and China are arguing. Just recognize they're a nuclear power. It's over. They're a nuclear power. Go ahead.

GLENN: Yeah, but, you know, we didn't have this problem with -- you know, with India. And even Pakistan. I don't know about you, I've never really been entirely comfortable with Pakistan having nuclear weapons.

STU: No. I wouldn't say I am. No.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: However, they have them. And we've accepted them.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: So because we've accepted them, we have been able to talk to them.

GLENN: And we're going to have to accept them having them because it's too late to do anything about it. They already have them. So I guess we are going to have to live with them. But I'm not entirely comfortable with a guy -- and, again, maybe I'm focusing too much on the concentration camps. Maybe it's just me.

STU: Stickler.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

Do YOU think the candidates hit the mark during the second GOP debate? Do you support Trump's decision to skip two debates in a row? Let us know in the poll below!

Do you think the 2nd GOP debate was overall positive?

Did the candidates debate issues you are concerned about?

Do you think the "real" debate was between Trump and Biden in Michigan?

Do you think any of the other GOP candidates can beat Trump? 

Do you think Trump can beat Biden? 

Do you think any other candidate besides Trump can beat Biden?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the first debate?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the second debate?

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

GUILLERMO ARIAS / Contributor | Getty Images

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
