Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is fed up with wimps in pro basketball, who he thinks should “quit wearing tampons.”
Th one-time Chicago Bulls star was seen wearing a red “Make Basketball Tough Again” hat in emulation of Donald Trump’s campaign hats that read “Make America Great Again.” TMZ’s cameras caught up to the outrageous figure to ask what the hat was all about.
Rodman wouldn’t speak to exactly what he meant by the slogan on his hat, but he did say that he thinks “All these guys should quit wearing tampons.”
A great friend to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Rodman also spoke to the recent summit between the North Korean leader and President Donald Trump.
“I think [Trump] went in there to try to ask for all this bullshit and stuff like that and he has to understand you just can’t go in and ask a guy like that to surrender his country and his freedom and his people,” Rodman told TMZ.
“Slowly, man. Ease into it, brother. You’ll get something,” Rodman advised Trump.
Rodman also noted that he hopes to visit North Korea again soon.
Last year, the Hall of Fame player said he deserved some credit from bringing Jong-un and President Trump together. But his self-proclaimed work of diplomacy still did not sit well with many who petitioned for him to be removed from the Hall of Fame for having praised a brutal dictator.
