Dream Team for 2016

Jul 25th, 2015 | By | Category: Features, Lead Article

Noted diplomat Dennis Rodman is not content to rest on laurels. You may recall that last year, he single-handedly undertook a dangerous mission to North Korea where, through a game-theoretic strategy involving high-stakes basketball, he managed to disarm the Little Dictator and make the United States North Korea’s BFF. Upon his return to America, he was rewarded by the media with glowing testimonials to his courage, statesmanship, and choice of nose rings.

And now, Rodman has outdone himself! He has managed to bring order to what was increasingly becoming an unruly fight for the Republican presidential nomination. He has come out in favor of Donald Trump, calling him a “great friend.” With this ringing endorsement, Rodman has made Trump the undisputed flag-bearer of the party, and the man to beat in the primaries.  Jeb Bush may have raised untold millions, Rick Perry has taken to wearing glasses, and Rand Paul has shown Americans how to destroy the tax code using a chainsaw. But so what? Only one man can claim to have garnered Rodman’s support. And that is Trump.

But alas, Trump’s warm feelings towards Rodman have turned out to be fleeting. After initially thanking him for endorsing his candidacy, Trump has reportedly said that Dennis Rodman “was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him. Glad I fired him on Apprentice!”

This is no way to talk about your friend. But America remains hopeful that Dennis and Donald will overcome their differences and become BFFs again. After all, we should not overlook Rodman’s diplomatic skills, nor should we forget Trump’s generosity of spirit. Is it too much, then, to hope that the country will see a Trump-Rodman ticket in 2016?
