DETROIT (AP/WWJ) – Former Detroit Pistons star Dennis Rodman was hardly diplomatic on his return Saturday from a meeting with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.

Rodman shouted down reporters who met him at the airport with questions the fate of Kenneth Bae, an American imprisoned in North Korea.

“Ask Obama about that, ask Obama, ask Obama, ask Hillary Clinton …ask those (expletive),” said Rodman as he walked away from reporters.

According to reports, Rodman and Kim Jong Un watched a basketball game together, and Kim hosted a dinner for the sports star.

Rodman first met Kim — a basketball fan — during a visit in February to promote the sport and make a film.
