Kim Jong Un, North Korea blast McCain for 'crazy fat kid' remark – By John Bacon , USA TODAY, March 30, 2017
North Korea expressed outrage at Sen. John McCain's description of President Kim Jong Un as a "crazy fat kid," saying the comment hurt the nation's dignity.
The Arizona Republican made the comment last week on MSNBC's For the Record with Greta while suggesting Beijing do more to control North Korea's bad behavior.
"China is the one, the only one, that can control Kim Jong Un, this crazy fat kid that's running North Korea," McCain said, adding that China "could stop North Korea's economy in a week."
The state-run Korean Central News Agency accused McCain, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, of attacking North Korea's "dignity," calling their comments a "grave provocation, little short of declaration of war."
Cruz drew the ire of North Korea for suggesting the country be listed as a state sponsor of terrorism.
McCain, unmoved by North Korea's wrath, tweeted: "What, did they want me to call him a crazy skinny kid?"
