If you are still having difficulty believing that we are living in a screwed-up world at a very screwed-up time in history, consider this: Dennis Rodman, a 6-foot 8-inch circus clown and former professional basketball player whose body is heavily tattooed and whose dyed hair changes color every day, is on his fifth trip to North Korea, a nation that is a major threat to start World War III and should be blown off the map.
Rodman evidently is in North Korea for no particular reason except to further his own image as perhaps the most laughable person on earth. Barnum & Bailey's circus tent has been folded forever, but Rodman is continuing to act like he, the bearded lady and the 6-legged man want to keep the Big Show alive. The elephants, lions and monkeys have gone back to the jungle to retire as long as their Social Security and pension checks don't bounce, but Rodman keeps us laughing.
As far as I know, the circus act in the White House [named Trump] didn't send Rodman to North Korea. But I guess I'm not 100 percent sure of that. Circus performers are friends for life. Rodman [he's the goofball in the picture] appeared on Trump's old Appentice TV show twice, and maybe the two of them now whisper sweet nothings into each other's ear with their iPhones every night of the week.
For all I know, Rodman has has some illegitimate thing going on with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Who knows what tnose guys do behind closed doors? Heck, maybe Rodman IS representing Trump in North Korea. If that's the case, heaven help us all.
