Americans can bet that the North Korean government won't be endorsing former Vice President and 2020 frontrunner for president Joe Biden any time soon.

Biden referred to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un as a "tyrant" at a recent campaign event. This clearly didn't sit well with Kim, because the North Korean government shot back at Biden with a stream of insults that could rival a tweet storm from President Donald Trump.


“What he uttered is just sophism of an imbecile bereft of elementary quality as a human being, let alone a politician,” the government said in a statement.

It continued:

"There is nonstop 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.”

The "Low IQ" insult sounds particularly familiar.

For his part, Trump's relationship with North Korea has been ever-shifting, with Kim calling the shots. Trump once called the dictator "Little rocket man" on Twitter, but later hosted two summits with the leader, both of which—despite Trump's assertions—didn't amount to the total denuclearization the United States had been striving for.

Many pointed out the similarities between Trump's regular juvenile insults and North Korea's words for Biden.

Fortunately for Biden, Americans don't hold too much stock in North Korea's endorsement.

Looks like Trump can add Kim to his list of endorsements, next to Vladimir Putin and David Duke.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

Vindman complied with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House committee overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry last year.

The career military official and Purple Heart recipient was escorted out by security along with his twin brother, an NSC official who played no part in the impeachment proceedings.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
