As President Donald Trump was making history by shaking hands with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Chris Cuomo was busy on CNN interviewing Dennis Rodman, who was wearing a MAGA hat and a PotCoin T-shirt.

Dennis Rodman is wearing a t-shirt on CNN right now promoting a digital cryptocurrency for marijuana funding… or something.

I’m not sure it’s possible to capture an entire era in one image, but Dennis Rodman running a cryptocurrency grift on live TV from the North Korea summit while wearing a MAGA is a serious nominee https://t.co/Qs7aQ4w6n8

.@CNN Why in the ever living hell are you giving Dennis Rodman airtime on this? What is wrong with you? How are you not unraveled by shame right now?

This is going in my 2018 time capsule known as Twitter:

I've been a proud CNN defender for a long time- in full disclosure I was a CNN intern in 1994 and had an amazing time… CNN giving 23 minutes to the ridiculousness of Dennis Rodman makes it very hard to be a CNN defender tonight

This is the most lit timeline
We got Dennis Rodman discussing North Korean foreign policy while crying live on CNN pic.twitter.com/6SII9clbjx

Rodman basically doing a WWE speech on CNN because this is about guarding our sacred free speech institutions & not ratings https://t.co/PlQK393sag

We’re living in a simulation and there’s a bug in the code. That’s the only explanation that makes sense. https://t.co/jjWhFXYcvX

Clearly, I have taken some bad acid…because Rodman is on CNN as a North Korea expert. pic.twitter.com/485gxN3xcX

Dennis Rodman just told Chris Cuomo that Kim Jong-un is "like a big kid" and "loves to have a good time."
— Josh Billinson (@jbillinson) June 12, 2018
Dennis Rodman, standing in Singapore, talking live on CNN, just shouted out to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam in thanks for his support in Rodman's North Korean diplomacy efforts.
I'm tripping balls, aren't I?

- 'Hell of a take'! Water main break leaves thousands in East Harlem without running water and NYT editorial board's Mara Gay knows exactly who's to blame
- British tea company is caught in a political firestorm without so much as making a comment - On the positive side, not just the US that is politically hysterical!
Hey, all you haters making fun of CNN’s coverage:
Jim Clapper says Dennis Rodman is the best source for understanding the mind of Kim Jong Un
— Gabriel Sherman (@gabrielsherman) June 12, 2018
And don’t you forget it. CNN’s Chris Cillizza doubled down on that message with a reminder to viewers “hating on” CNN’s coverage.
Reminder to people hating on the Dennis Rodman interview: Jim Clapper said TONIGHT that he long advocated for Rodman to play a more formal role in talks with North Korea.
Jim Clapper. The former Director of National Intelligence.
— Chris Cillizza (@CillizzaCNN) June 12, 2018
Jim Clapper, people.
Sure, but he's not playing a formal role. He's on CNN, apparently in a state, plugging a pot cyptocurrency firm https://t.co/QHZgmWpgVn

This gives me less confidence in Clapper's judgement, not more in CNN's. https://t.co/bXVJwSwHUG

oh ok as long as James Clapper said it's fine. great analysis, Chris

Didn't Clapper lie to Congress? https://t.co/D6M1Y4lc7X

Who got caught trying to spy on tens of millions of Americans and lying to Congress … https://t.co/dsHo0eVYBr

Was Clapper telling the truth when he made this comment? https://t.co/QZ9HE8tver

We learned that Cillizza can be pretty touchy.
Oh my God. The mental gymnastics you had to pull off to give Obama credit here are simply astounding. pic.twitter.com/1beW4OzLKe
