Have you heard Dennis Rodman speak, recently? Well, if not, check out this video where it seems more like he's filming a WCW promo spot, rather than talking about politics on CNN.

The former NBA star is in North Korea (again) with a slew of other former basketball stars for an apparent birthday gift for Kim Jong-un. Vin Baker, Cliff Robinson, Kenny Anderson, Rodman and others will play a game against North Koreans on Wednesday.

Today, though, you can check out the footage below of Rodman laying into CNN personality Chris Cuomo over a question about Kenneth Bae, the U.S. citizen who has been detained in North Korea for more than a year. Rodman gets pretty upset and sounds like he's slurring his words while he waves a cigar around in the frame.

Growing angry with Cuomo and jabbing his finger toward the camera for emphasis, Rodman said, "Kenneth Bae did one thing ... If you understand what Kenneth Bae did. Do you understand what he did in this country? No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why? ... I would love to speak on this.

"You know, you've got 10 guys here, 10 guys here, they've left their families, they've left their damn families, to help this country, as in a sports venture. That's 10 guys, all these guys here, do anyone understand that? Christmas, New Year's ...

"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."

Whatcha gonna do, brother? [CNN]
