(Newser) – Dennis Rodman already has asked his pal Kim Jong Un from afar to "do me a solid' and release imprisoned American Kenneth Bae. Now he's going back to North Korea in early August to ask in person, reports TMZ. Why? Because, Rodman explains in his unique version of diplo-speak, President Obama "can't do s---." Bae has begun serving a 15-year sentence of hard labor because Pyongyang accuses the tour operator of trying to overthrow the government. "I'm gonna try and get the guy out," says Rodman.

Don't want to throw no shade on Rodman's game but, this can't end well.
