Monday's HOT MIC
When North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un insults you, you must be doing something right. From The Denver Post:
Last week on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, [Sen. Cory] Gardner [R-Colo.] said “most people agree” that Kim 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,” he said. “We shouldn’t be in the position of flattery.”
Days later, Pyongyang’s Korean Central News Agency responded, saying the Republican senator had “perpetrated wicked blasphemy” against Kim, according to a translation by UPI.
“For a psychopath like the [expletive] Gardner, to hurl evil accusations at our highest dignity, is a serious problem…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.”
But Gardner responded again Monday, digging his heels in and calling Kim a “madman.”
Kim is a madman, and this native Coloradan has never been more proud. Keep it up, Gardner!
