Secretary of State John Kerry apparently wasn't too impressed with former NBA player Dennis Rodman's diplomacy skills this week. Kerry became one of many critics after Rodman stuttered and stumbled his way around defending Korean Leader Kim Jun Un in an ABC interview with George Stephanopoulous.
"Dennis Rodman was a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he was a great basketball player. And that's where we'll leave it," said Kerry on MSNBC.
Rodman responded to the many bouts of criticism and attempted to downplay the trip by saying he was never sent as a diplomat. That, however, didn't stop him from offering words of advice to the president, saying that President Obama should give the Korean leader a call.
"He loves basketball," Rodman said of Kim on ABC. "Obama loves basketball. Let's start there."
