‘A Fool of Low IQ’: North Korea Slams Biden over ‘Slander’ of Leader Kim

SEOUL – North Korean state media made on Wednesday a scathing attack on former United States vice president and Democrat 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden for alleged slander of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

During a campaign event last weekend in Philadelphia, Biden reportedly asked if the US had become “a nation that embraces dictators and tyrants like (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and Kim Jong-un.”

North Korean state news agency KCNA lashed out on Wednesday, accusing Biden of slandering Kim and of becoming “reckless and senseless, seized by ambition for power.”

In addition to calling him a “fool of low IQ,” the KCNA article said Biden was an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician,” bringing up questionable episodes of his career.

The article referred to the recent criticisms Biden received for his inappropriate behavior alleged by several women, accusations of plagiarism during his campaign for the Democratic primaries before the 1988 presidential election, and images that show him falling asleep in 2011 during a speech by then-president Barack Obama.

The commentary added that Biden “self-praising himself as being the most popular presidential candidate… is enough to make a cat laugh.”

The article concluded that Pyongyang will “never pardon anyone who dare provoke the supreme leadership of the DPRK (official name of North Korea) but will certainly make them pay for it.”

From the beginning of his campaign for the 2020 primaries, Biden has criticized President Donald Trump for “stiff-arming our friends and embracing our enemies,” called Putin a “dictator” and a “kleptomaniac” and Kim a “thug” who writes “love letters” to Trump.

He also spoke about Kim as “a guy with his uncle’s brains blown out, sitting across a table” referring to the 2013 execution of Jang Song-thaek, Kim’s uncle and an important figure in the Pyongyang regime.
