Dennis Rodman crying on CNN while Trump meets with Kim Jong-un is quintessential 2018

President Donald Trump on Monday had a 13-second handshake with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for in a historic meeting in Singapore, BuzzFeed News reported. Meanwhile, former NBA player Dennis Rodman cried while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat on CNN, cementing this day as a pinnacle of the weird political timeline we inhabit.

Rodman told the news network from Singapore he had always been a supporter of North Korea, even while he was threatened for defending the country. He also said former President Barack Obama never gave him “the time of day” on the subject.

“It’s a great day. I am here to see it. I’m so happy,” Rodman said, becoming emotional throughout the interview.

Rodman also plugged Potcoin, the marijuana-centered cryptocurrency that sponsored his trip.

On Twitter, conservatives celebrated Trump’s meeting with Kim—and Rodman’s heartfelt support of it.

Trump and Kim are expected to discuss a contingent path to end to North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. Although the president has admitted it’s possible the plan “won’t work out,” on Monday he tweeted there was “excitement in the air” surrounding the meeting.

Over the weekend, Trump distanced himself from E.U. leaders by backing out of the G7 summit to meet with Kim. The tension between Trump and Western European leaders is so great that even top-level officials were reposting memes about it.
