So, umm, yeah. This is a thing that actually happened today. This is, in fact, the world we currently live in.
With President Donald Trump agreeing to meet with reclusive North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un for what could be a historic summit, basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman gave a thumbs-up over the two men coming face-to-face.
How’d Rodman give his endorsement? Just look at the tweet below.

Yep, that’s a photoshopped pic of the North Korean leader wearing a “Make America Great Again” ballcap. You can’t make this up.
The NBA champ has met with both Kim and Trump, having made multiple “goodwill” trips to the hermit country — he actually sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Kim during one trip — and appearing on a season of Trump’s reality show Celebrity Apprentice.
As you would imagine, there was reaction on Twitter:
This is where we are in 2018: crossing our fingers that Dennis Rodman’s friends don’t blow the world up. https://t.co/QRGsvKCIkk

Somewhere out there is a person who really regrets teaching Dennis Rodman to use Photoshop. https://t.co/h72yuz90Un
