Rodman: Hey, sorry, but I was drinking when I implied Bae was a criminal

Yes, I’m quite sure this makes Kenneth Bae’s family feel so much better:

Dennis Rodman is reportedly apologizing for comments he made in an interview about an American missionary held captive in North Korea for more than a year.

The former NBA star, who has cozied up to North Korea’s young dictator, made the apology through an email sent by publicist Jules Feiler, The Associated Press reported.

“I want to apologize,” Rodman said in the email to AP. “I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates. My dreams of basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It’s not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed. It’s not an excuse, it’s just the truth.”

And how bad did Rodman feel about this? Er …

A source with direct knowledge of Rodman’s itinerary told Reuters the 52-year had then hopped on a chopper to a new multimillion dollar ski resort which is one of Kim’s showcase projects.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Somehow, this apology seems … insufficient. YMMV.

Rodman is a douche, he’s not a bag, he’s a douche.

Mr. Rodman I hope someone truly explains to you what Mr. Bae was doing before you stand before his Master. It will change your life.

I recall last year when Rubio was drinking during the making of a video and he didn’t sound anything like Rotman.

According to some reports, Rodman jetted off to a private ski resort with the fat little bastard Supreme Leader right after issuing his apology.

The State Department should revoke his passport and leave the SOB in the DPRK to party hardy with his BFF until they both rot.

I had been drinking.

From what I’ve seen, in NorKland that’s a good way to get invited out for some mortar practice.
