Without specifying exactly what Cruz said about them, North Korea accused the Texas Senator of “slander” and “mud-slinging” in their statement, according to Newsweek.
North Korea is quoted as saying:
“No wonder, heavyweight lawmakers from the Republican Party contended if he becomes a presidential candidate from the Republican Party, it will be a big disaster. He, therefore, has become notorious not only in the U.S. but even in the Republican Party as ‘an ultra-rightist detested by everyone,’ ‘a liar’ and ‘a demon in human shape.
“His behavior is sure to make everyone take him as a remnant of Nazis with extreme misanthropy or a hysteric psychopath bereft of reason. We will never pardon whoever provokes the dignity of the supreme leadership of our country but will make those pay dearly for what they have done by all means.”
Senator Cruz responded with pure sarcasm upon seeing coverage of the article, which is sure to ruffle North Korea’s feathers even more. See Below
In a pair of tweets, Cruz said, “2 years ago, Kim Jong Un called my friend [Senator Cory Gardner] ‘a psychopath…a man mixed in w/ human dirt who has lost basic judgment & body hair.'”
“As I told Cory, I was always a bit jealous that he had attracted N Korea’s ire like that. Well now, Kim Jong Un has unloaded on me,” he continued.
“Now, North Korea has called me ‘a demon in human shape…with extreme misanthropy or a hysteric psychopath bereft of reason.’ So Cory, I’ll see your hairless dirt-ball, and raise you a misanthropic demon!” he concluded. See Below
