From "Dotard" To "Old, Insane, B***h": Here's A List Of North Korea's Most Memorable Insults

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un unwittingly set the internet on fire Thursday night when he proclaimed that US President and purported Kim BFF Donald Trump was a “mentally deranged dotard” and a “rogue and a gangster.”

Kim’s usage of the arcane vocab word prompted hundreds of thousands of people ask Google what exactly is a dotard? (for the record, it’s a pejorative term for a senile old man).

As the Sun newspaper points out, Kim’s latest viral proclamation follows a pattern of North Korean media serving up memorable – if sometimes nonsensical – soundbites in their attacks on American politicians.

And in a list dating back to the Bush Administration - when Kim Jong Un's father Kim Jong Il was still running the country - the Sun recounts some of North Korea's most memorable missives to their American “imperialist” adversaries.

Cory Gardner:

When Senator Corey Gardner called Kim a “whack job” in May, the dictator was less than pleased. State media quickly responded, saying that Gardner was “human dirt”.

A statement said: "It is a serious provocation that Gardner, like a psychopath, dare to bear the evil that dares our highest dignity.

"It is America’s misfortune that a man mixed in with human dirt like Gardner, who has lost basic judgement and body hair, could only spell misfortune for the United States."

Obama:

In 2014, North Korea branded then-US President Barack Obama a "juvenile delinquent", a "clown" and a "dirty fellow.” The North’s remarks verged on outright racism when they said Obama "still has the figure of monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years."

KCNA added that Obama "does not even have the basic appearances of a human being" and, in a particularly vile statement, called him: "a wicked black monkey".

John Kerry:

Also in 2014, an unidentified North Korean spokesperson poetically described then-Secretary of State John Kerry a "wolf donning the mask of sheep" who had a "hideous lantern jaw.”

Hillary Clinton:

Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, was described in 2009 as "by no means intelligent" and a "funny lady".

"Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping," an unnamed North Korean source said.

Park Geun-Hye:

The reclusive regime has also made former South Korean President Park Geun-hye a popular target, alternately naming her as a "senile granny", a "tailless, old, insane bitch", and "a traitor for all times".

George W Bush:

North Korea famously labeled Bush a “hooligan” who “looked like a chicken soaked in rain.”

Dick Cheney:

The former vice president was accused of being “a most cruel monster and bloody-thirsty beast.” Yet no jokes about his aim.

Donald Rumsfeld

The North blasted Rummy, labeling him a “political dwarf” and “human scum.”

If there’s an upside to the US’s reluctance to foment regime change in the North, it’s that North Korea’s leader, and its ministry of propaganda, will probably keep churning out these colorful little nuggets.

How about more of this battling-MCs type banter. OMG I nearly cried with laughter. Awesome. The stuff from the US side is good too.The "more-than a grain of truth" and "can't-possibly say that" factors in some of their declarations are the best parts.Can we assume these are translated? Or are the NKs working 24/7 through the best English thesaurus available?God help us if they discover colloquial English or slang dictionaries. :D

North’s remarks verged on outright racism when they said Obama "still has the figure of monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years."If those remarks only 'verge' on on outright racism I would like to see what IS considered outright racism..

I can confirm Corey Gardner is indeed "human dirt".He is opposed to white people standing up for their own interests. Apparently that privilege is only reserved for blacks, browns and jews.He also totally mis-characterized what happend in Charlottesville. Blaming the alt-white for the violence of the commie left.Cory Gardner kicked off his day of three solo, in-person town halls across the state — his first such events in more than a year — by reiterating his disgust of white nationalist groups and their violent actions over the weekend in Virginia.http://www.denverpost.com/2017/08/15/cory-gardner-in-person-town-halls-…

The less convenient, but more truthful approach would be to denounce false, corrupt leadership at home as well as the workings of the little dweeb in NK, all at once.

Use an English thesaurus, North Korean writers can...Some, SAT - level words, they are.  "Dotard", for example.From New York Times crossword puzzles?  Hmmmm... When nine hundred years old you become, look this good you will not.

Waiting to wake up in the morning and see Kim has popped a Nuke off in the Pacific.  It's the weekend after all.  Another news release of more threats is already expected after Trumps speech  tonight.

It is America’s misfortune that a man mixed in with human dirt like Gardner, who has lost basic judgement and body hair, could only spell misfortune for the United States.

The mini-Goebbels writing this stuff has the cushiest gig in all Norkland. After the Supreme Oompa Loompa, of course.

It's the Velvet Elvis school of propaganda but it has its moments -- the bit about losing "basic judgment and body hair" is funnier than two-thirds of SNL's material.
