(TMZ) Dennis Rodman tells TMZ … he’s going back to North Korea on August 1 to reopen the political dialogue with Kim Jong-un … because Barack Obama “can’t do s**t.”

Rodman was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked about his plan to head back to DPRK to visit his tiny, little, missile-obsessed “friend” with the weird haircut.

The Worm told us he’ll do everything in his power to sway Jong-un into releasing American Kenneth Bae — who was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in North Korea for allegedly plotting to overthrow the government.

“I’m gonna try and get the guy out,” Rodman said … “It’s gonna be difficult.”
