Bae is an American who's serving 15 years in an North Korean prison. Probably the first time the words "do me a solid" and "Supreme Leader" have appeared in the same sentence.

4. "My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries. Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s job."

6. “I’m just gonna chill, play some basketball and maybe go on vacation with Kim and his family.”

Oh, yeah, he's going back to North Korea this August to vacation. Pyongyang is supposed to be lovely that time of year. That Rodman, so wacky!
