North Korean News Agency Slams Ted Cruz as 'a Demon in Human Shape' Who Is 'Detested by Everyone'

North Korean News Agency Slams Ted Cruz as 'a Demon in Human Shape' Who Is 'Detested by Everyone'

Honestly? Fair.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is one of the least liked politicians in Washington. From George W. Bush to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to the Satanic Temple, Cruz has a long list of detractors.

Now, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) can be added to the list.


In an article on its website, KCNA lambasted Cruz for unspecified comments that "dared to slander the dignity of the supreme leadership of the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea]," referring to him with insults that make President Donald Trump seem tame.

The article says of Cruz:

"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."

The article doesn't clarify which comments Cruz made against North Korea, but does criticize Cruz's past comments expressing skepticism of growing ties between the United States and its enemies.

Though Cruz is a Trump ally now (a reversal from when the two were vying for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination), the senator remains wary of Trump's subservience to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. North Korea continues to run missile tests despite Trump touting imminent denuclearization in the past.

It's not often that Americans praise North Korean media, but Ted Cruz had a way of uniting people.

It's unclear which is worse: being called a "demon in human shape" or the Zodiac Killer.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
