Dennis Rodman made his second trip to North Korea, landing yesterday to "meet my friend, Kim," as Rodman put it.
Rodman made his first trip as a part of a basketball diplomacy trip, filmed by VICE. Rodman declared North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to be his friend. They watched a basketball game and ate a large meal afterward.
This relationship, as one-sided as it may be, encouraged Rodman to speak up for an American citizen currently serving time in a North Korean prison, to no avail.
I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him "Kim", to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose.

But Rodman says he isn't going to North Korean as a diplomat this time, and won't advocate for the release of Bae. He will, however, attempt to start a basketball league.
