WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says North Korea's government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on "celebrity sporting events" to entertain the country's elite.
White House spokesman Jay Carney made the comments in response to a question about ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman's recent visit to North Korea. Rodman watched a basketball game with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Upon his return to the U.S., Rodman called up President Obama who then invited Rodman to a game of Basketball at the White House. Many celebrities joined Obama and Rodman at the White House to enjoy the entertainment.
