Dennis Rodman told Kim Jong Un: “Your father and grandfather did a lot of fucked up shit.”

Dennis Rodman sat down with Howard Stern to talk about his big trip to Singapore.

Rodman argued that Kim Jong Un has not engaged in the type of repressive tactics employed by his father and grandfather. “He didn’t create this bullshit. He just inherited it,” he said at one point.

“Your father and grandfather did a lot of fucked up shit,” Rodman supposedly told Kim Jong Un, through a translator, “but you’re trying to change things and that’s a great, great thing.”

Rodman also addressed the phone call he received from Trump’s “secretary,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as he put in on CNN. In the video released from that call as part of a Vice News Tonight segment on HBO, Rodman can be seen repeatedly calling the White House press secretary “honey” as she thanked him on behalf of President Trump for “some of the nice things” he said during the process.

“To be honest with you, I didn’t even know who she was,” Rodman admitted with a laugh. “But it was cool that she called and expressed the fact that Donald was very happy that I’m supporting him and have his back,” he added.

And if Trump does somehow win a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on North Korea, Rodman said that all he wants a little recognition for his role in making it happen.

“If you get the Nobel Peace Prize, I want you to do one thing for me,” he said. “I want you to give me a handshake and a hug. That’s all I want. He can have the Nobel Peace Prize, just give me that.”

Donald Trump to Howard Stern: “You have no idea how tough I’d be” on North Korea

“This is the final question,” Howard Stern said toward the end of a 2006 interview in which Trump appeared. “Are you ready? You are the president of the United States. What do we do about North Korea?”

“I would be so tough, you have no idea,” Trump replied. “You have no idea how tough I’d be.”

“Embargoes?” Stern asked.

“Well, I think I’d go beyond embargoes,” Trump said. “I would be so tough, but I wouldn’t send [Bush’s Secretary of State] Condoleezza Rice in to negotiate.”

Stern asked why, to which Trump replied, “I don’t think she’s tough enough. I mean, I don’t think she’s a tough person.”

When Stern asked if Rice was a “lightweight,” Trump said he thought she was “not tough enough to do a good job.”

Eleven years later and now POTUS Trump is dealing with North Korea head on. Yesterday President Trump tweeted accusing his predecessors of failing to deal with North Korea’s nuclear program but stated he would not be doing the same.

“Being nice to Rocket Man hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won’t fail,” he said on Twitter.

Trump also tweeted suggesting that his presumably “tough enough” Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was wasting his time dealing with Kim Jong Un.

“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” he said. “Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!”

Dennis Rodman gifts Donald Trump’s book “Art of the Deal” to Kim Jong-un

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman has given North Korea’s Sports Minister a copy of US President Donald Trump’s book The Art of the Deal as a gift intended for the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un.

Rodman arrived in North Korea for his fourth visit to the country.

Before flying from China to North Korea, he told reporters he was “just trying to open a door” with North Korea and was travelling as a private citizen.

Along with President Trump’s book, other gifts he presented for Kim Jong-un included a copy of Where’s Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection, a mermaid puzzle, two sets of soap and two autographed jerseys.

The puzzle and the Where’s Waldo? are likely for Kim’s daughter.

Rodman also met North Korean Olympic athletes, including judo gold medallist An Kum-ae.

“All of you guys should be proud of yourselves, because, you know, a lot of people don’t give you guys credit, because this is such a small country, and not many people from North Korea can compete around the world,” said Rodman.

“But for you guys to come back here in your country, with a medal, that says a lot about North Korea, because people don’t really take North Korea so seriously about sports or anything like that.”

North Koreas Sports Minister made clear that Rodman was viewed fondly in North Korea.

“In the past, our respected supreme leader met you several times and he used his precious time to watch the basketball match with the players you brought here,” Kim Il-guk told Rodman.

“In the past he met you, so our people all know you well. And also we feel that you are an old friend.”

Jimmy Kimmel: Howard Stern’s audacity and force rivaled only by Kim Jong-un

Jimmy Kimmel recently wrote a column for the Hollywood Reporter explaining why Howard Stern is New York’s most powerful man.

“Though I have no doubt he will make me regret having written this, I hope it is a reminder of how much his work means to me and so many others.”

At 6-foot-12 and 104 pounds, Stern is the most powerful man in New York. In a city bursting at the streams with podcasts and pundits, Maddows and Mirandas, Stewarts and Stephanopouli, Howard is lord of an extraterrestrial radio oasis, an FCC-free forum on which major celebrities and slow adults (some are both) are given equal time and consideration.

The scope of the show is staggering. An hour in-studio with Paul McCartney might be (and was) followed by an hourlong phone call with “Jeff the Drunk” — a dead-armed alcoholic calling from a trailer in upstate New York.

Howard is probably most famous for his early work popularizing lesbianism and repurposing butts as bongos, but those who followed him to satellite radio know he is far more than just a “shock jock.” He is the rare broadcaster with integrity. Howard’s rules will not bend just to get a booking. When you sit on his couch, you know that no subject is off-limits.

The foundation that has been laid by years of refusing to compromise is strong, and as a result, Howard’s interviews with movie stars, comedians, musicians, and politicians go deeper and further than any in broadcasting.

Guests are determined to impress him. The A-listers who once “ran for zee hills” now line up to be examined and blessed. No less than a future president of the United States (out of respect for the office, I won’t say which) once rated women on a scale of one to 10 just to ingratiate himself with the King of All Media.

I’ve heard Howard’s voice more than that of any other human being, my mother’s included. I’m not alone. After a visit to The Howard Stern Show, the feedback I get is immediate and intense. Seemingly normal men and women reveal themselves to be otherwise by shouting, “Great job on Howard!” and “I love you on Stern!” No compliment tickles me more.

When Howard announced his move to Sirius in 2006, the company had 600,000 subscribers. Eleven years later, that number has increased 50-fold. SiriusXM has more than 31 million paying customers — and Howard’s listeners are not passive fans. This is a show that compels men who sell medical equipment to scream “Baba!” and “Booey!” at golf tournaments. My neighbor had twin boys last week and implored his wife to name them Sal and Richard, after two maniacs on Howard’s staff.

Is that enough power for you? If not, know that Howard named not one but two channels after himself. Howard 100 and Howard 101 run nothing but Howard, Howard and more Howard 24 hours a day in a show of audacity and force rivaled only by Kim Jong-un.

From this day forth, let New Yorkers from here and far join in worship and praise for our Dear Leader, Howard Stern.

Amen.

“After a visit to The Howard Stern Show, the feedback I get is immediate and intense,” Jimmy continued. “Nothing tickles me more.”
