After calling North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un a “whack job,” the country offered an off-the-rails response to this U.S. senator.
North Korea’s government called Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) a “psychopath” and “human dirt” last week after Gardner said the dictator Kim Jong-un is “a whack job.”
The unexpected war of words started when Gardner told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Jong-un is “a whack job” and “a crazed maniac at the helm of one of the world’s nuclear regimes.”
The North Korean government actually responded a few days later, with an expletive- and insult-laden statement (translation offered by UPI):
“For a psychopath like the [expletive] Gardner, to hurl evil accusations at our highest dignity, is a serious provocation,” the Pyongyang spokesman said. “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.”
North Korea also called Gardner’s statement “wicked blasphemy against our supreme dignity.”
Gardner has been one of the toughest and most outspoken senators on North Korea. He has called for new sanctions on North Korea since January, and more recently called for a “total and complete” economic embargo of the hermit nation.
