While political analysts try to decipher what just happened at the Trump-Kim summit, wherein North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un walked away with Trump's assurance that the U.S. "would stop military exercises with South Korea," in exchange for...well, nothing, former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman could be seen weeping about the meeting in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.
