John McCain doubles down calling North Korea’s Kim Jong-un a ‘crazy fat kid’

PHOENIX — Arizona Sen. John McCain apparently got under the skin of the North Korean government by calling leader Kim Jong-un a “crazy fat kid” last week.

And he doesn’t seem too regretful in doing so.

Quoting a story in The Daily Caller about North Korea taking offense to McCain’s comments during an interview with MSNBC’s Greta van Susteren last week, the Arizona senator poked fun at Jong-un’s weight even more on Wednesday.

He tweeted, “What, did they want me to call him a crazy skinny kid?”

A story by North Korea’s state-run news agency said McCain hurt the country’s dignity.

The same press release also criticized Sen. Ted Cruz, who has pushed to redesignate the country as a sponsor of terrorism.
