Rodman Spotted At Vatican City To Support ‘New Black Pope’


CHICAGO (CBS) — Ambassador Dennis Rodman, fresh off his visit to North Korea, has now landed in Vatican City, as the world waits and watches for a new pope.

Rodman, who engaged in some “diplomacy” with North Korean President Kim Jong-Un earlier this month, was spotted at the Vatican by CBS 2 news anchor Kate Sullivan.

“I am over here to support the new black pope,” said Rodman, referring to Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana. “He’s 3-to-1 right now. He can come here with some fresh ideas.”

During the interview, Rodman was wearing a shirt and hat promoting an online betting site that is taking wagers on the next leader of the Catholic Church.

Sullivan’s full interview with Rodman can been seen on the CBS 2 News at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The North Korean leader is a huge fan of Rodman and the 1990s Chicago Bulls, which is believed to be the major reason why Rodman got rare access to the reclusive president.
