Would Dennis Rodman Make a Better President than Donald Trump?

When a player retires from any sport, unless they were one of the best players of their generation it’s not common for them to have huge relevancy in society many years after their retirement.  It’s simply the nature of things.  There’s nothing wrong with this but don’t tell that to Dennis Rodman.  Rodman was one of the craziest players in NBA history, not to mention one of the most gifted rebounders.  But other than rebounding, he fits the mold of a guy who wouldn’t seem to merit much press years after retirement, except one thing.   Dennis Rodman isn’t your everyday NBA retiree.

Rodman’s managed to have attention on him despite his career having ended in the year 2000.  Not bad.  His most recent role?  He’s kind of our ambassador for North Korea and may very well be the reason that we don’t go to war with them.  No, I’m serious.  According to Deadline

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman boasted he is responsible, in part, for the release of American college student Otto Warmbier from North Korea, who died last Monday, just days after being medically evacuated from a North Korean prison. “I was just so happy to see the kid released,” Rodman told Good Morning America co-anchor Michael Strahan.”Later that day, that’s when we found out he was ill, no one knew that. We jumped up and down … Some good things came of this trip.”

No one really knows what the hell is going on here but here’s my question.  If Rodman keeps up his foreign relations ability, could he actually be a contender for the Oval Office?  Clearly he wouldn’t get voted for but I’d be extremely curious if it were put to a vote today, how many Americans would vote for Dennis Rodman over Donald Trump.   I think the numbers would be way way closer than anyone would expect.  That’s the United States of 2017 for ya.
