Normally, I couldn’t care less what North Korea thinks about the United States. However, I found it quite comical when the country labeled Creepy Uncle Joe as a “fool of low IQ” and an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being.”
The 2020 presidential candidate called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a tyrant. While Biden is not wrong (shocker), neither is North Korea in their description of the former vice president.
Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency on Wednesday said the former American vice president had insulted the country’s supreme leadership and committed an “intolerable and serious politically-motivated provocation” against the North.
Biden during a campaign launch in Philadelphia on Saturday accused President Donald Trump of cozying up to “dictators and tyrants” like Kim and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“What he uttered is just sophism of an imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician,” KCNA continued in their rant about Biden, “There is nonstop comment over his bid for candidacy that he is not worth pinning hope on, backed by the jeer that he is a fool of low IQ.”
“Yet, he is self-praising himself as being the most popular presidential candidate. This is enough to make a cat laugh,” they added, “Explicitly speaking, we will never pardon anyone who dare provoke the supreme leadership of the DPRK but will certainly make them pay for it.”
North Korea has often unleashed crude insults against U.S. and South Korean politicians in past years to criticize what its [SIC] saw as insults to its leadership or hostile diplomatic and military policies against Pyongyang. The insults have included racist and sexist diatribes, including when the North called former President Barack Obama “a monkey” and former South Korean President Park Geun-hye, the country’s first female leader, a prostitute.
The North’s description of Trump dramatically improved after Kim initiated diplomacy with Washington and Seoul in 2018 while attempting to leverage his nuclear arsenal for economic and security benefits. The nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang broke down in February when a summit between Kim and Trump collapsed over mismatched demands in sanctions relief and disarmament.
Biden has yet to respond to North Korea’s insults.
