I think most people agree that Kim Jong Un is a whack job. This is a crazed maniac at the helm of one of the world’s nuclear regimes, trying to become a nuclear regime.
The government of North Korea reacted in a predictably hilarious manner:
On May 3, some [expletive] by the name of Cory Gardner, who sits on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, perpetrated wicked blasphemy against our supreme dignity during an interview with NBC. For a psychopath like the [expletive] Gardner, to hurl evil accusations at our highest dignity, is a serious provocation. That a man mixed in with human dirt like Gardner, who has lost basic judgment and body hair, could only spell misfortune for the United States.
It is almost as if the North Korean government took a class on internet trolling. It takes a special person to use terms such as “wicked blasphemy.”
It’s also unclear why the North Koreans believe that Gardner has lost his body hair, or why or how one could be “mixed in with human dirt.” This response comes a couple months after Senator John McCain also insulted Kim Jong-un by calling him a “crazy, fat kid” and received an angry reply from the North Koreans for his comments.
Apparently, the corpulent and farcical Kim Jong-un is very sensitive about being called crazy and fat, as it insults his “highest dignity.” He is also reportedly disappointed that “Pi Day” in the U.S. does not feature actual pies.
