North Korea has called Joe Biden a “fool of low IQ” and an “imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being” after he said Kim Jong Un was a tyrant.
Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) accused Mr Biden of committing an “intolerable and serious politically motivated provocation” against Pyongyang.
It comes after the former vice president accused Donald Trump of cosying up to “dictators and tyrants” like Mr Kim and Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a rally in Philadelphia.
KCNA, the country’s official agency, said: “What he uttered is just sophism of an imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician.”
It went on to accuse him of being “reckless and senseless” and “seized by ambition for power”.
Mr Biden is running in the Democrat race for the 2020 presidential election.
KCNA also mentioned some of Mr Biden’s apparent gaffes, including appearing to fall asleep during a speech by Barack Obama when he was president.
The piece said: “It is by no means accidental that here is non-stop 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.”
It’s not the first time North Korea has launched interesting insults at its political opponents.
In 2017, Mr Kim called Mr Trump a “mentally deranged US dotard” after the US president said he would “totally destroy North Korea” if forced to defend itself.
The secretive nation is also known to sometimes hurls racist and sexist diatribe, once calling Mr Obama a “monkey” and former South Korean president Park Geun-Hye, the country’s first female leader, a “prostitute”.
