Two-time presidential candidate Rev. Jesse Jackson turned to Twitter on Monday to praise former NBA player Dennis Rodman's "diplomatic" trips to North Korea.
Congrads @dennisrodman on your diplomacy efforts in North Korea. It might be dark but you are a light!— Rev Jesse Jackson Sr (@RevJJackson) January 6, 2014
Rodman had previously stated that he loved Kim Jong-un, the North Korean dictator, calling him a "good guy" and a "friend." Kim Jong-un made headlines recently for executing his own uncle. Earlier this year, Kim Jong-un said that Switzerland was committing a human rights abuse for refusing to sell North Korea ski lifts.
Rodman's trips certainly are weird, and they're not anything worthy of praise. Kim Jong-un is not a "good guy" by any standard.
UPDATE: It appears that Jackson has deleted his first tweet, offering "congrads" to Rodman.
