"New Day" Exclusive: See Dennis Rodman's Bizarre Rant About North Korean Leader

Former NBA player Dennis Rodman erupted with anger on "New Day" Tuesday.

In an exclusive interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman defended his controversial visit to North Korea with a team of former NBA players, saying it was a "great idea for the world."

From the capital, Pyongyang, Rodman reacted angrily when pressed on whether the group should have traveled there given recent events in the secretive country.

Rodman said: "I don't give a rat's ass what the hell you think. I'm saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them ... they dared to do one thing, they came here."

The other former NBA players are due to take part in a controversial basketball game on the birthday of Kim Jong Un, the country's young, unpredictable leader. The friendly contest with North Korea's team is planned for Wednesday, when Kim is believed to turn 31.

Apparently referring to Kim, Rodman said, "I love my friend. This is my friend."
