Secretary of State John Kerry joined just about every other person in the United States in denouncing Dennis Rodman’s recent “basketball diplomacy” trip to North Korea.
“Dennis Rodman was a great basketball player,” Kerry told NBC News. “And as a diplomat, he is a great basketball player. And that’s where we’ll leave it.”
Sounds like somebody is jealous he didn’t get to party with Kim Jong Un.
Kerry was answering a question from Andrea Mitchell for an interview scheduled to air Tuesday. No one of any political consequence should be forced to dignify Rodman’s made-for-HBO propaganda visit, but if someone is going to ask, a healthy dose of burn is the way to go.
Then again, if history is any judge, there’s a reasonable chance Kerry was for Dennis Rodman’s visit before he was against it.
