(Newser) – Dennis Rodman wrapped up his second visit to North Korea today, and, no, he didn't secure the release of a detained US citizen. "Guess what? That's not my job to ask about Kenneth Bae," he testily told reporters at the Beijing airport, reports AP and CNN. "Ask Obama about that, ask Hillary Clinton," said Rodman, possibly unaware that Clinton is no longer secretary of state. "Ask those ---holes."

As for the four-day visit itself, Rodman showed photos of himself dining and watching a basketball game with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, reports USA Today. "He's my friend for life," said Rodman.
