Dennis Rodman Thinks He Should Be Considered For Nobel Peace Prize

Dennis Rodman famously went to North Korea to meet with Kim Jong-un. Now he thinks that trip, and his delusional presumption that he has kept North Korea from attacking anyone, is worth a Nobel Peace Prize.

Keep in mind, this is a real story.

From Sports Illustrated:

“Fact is, he hasn’t bombed anywhere he’s threatened to yet. Not South Korea, not Hawaii, not … whatever. People say he’s the worst guy in the world. All I know is Kim told me he doesn’t want to go to war with America. His whole deal is to talk basketball with Obama. Unfortunately, Obama doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. I ask, Mr. President, what’s the harm in a simple phone call? This is a new age, man. Come on, Obama, reach out to Kim and be his friend.”

“My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries,” Rodman says. “Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama's] job. But I’ll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong.”

Rodman is headed back to North Korea in August.
