The admonishment from the White House came in response to a rant which called Obama a “dirty fellow” who “does not even have the basic appearances of a human being,” reports the Washington Post.
A posting against Obama asserted, “It would be perfect for Obama to live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the breadcrumbs thrown by spectators.”
In responding to the screed, the White House called the Pyongyang post “particularly ugly and disrespectful.” Normally the White House ignores rants coming out of North Korea, but this one was so offensive that the White House decided that it needed to respond.
“While the North Korean Government-controlled media are distinguished by their histrionics, these comments are particularly ugly and disrespectful,” Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said in a statement, according to the Washington Post.
North Korea’s state run media isn’t known for holding back, but it has never before attαcked a U.S. president in such a personal and offensive manner.
Obama has “crossbreed bloοd” and “still has the figure of a monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years,” read the North Korean paper.
The post was discovered by Joshua Stanton, who posts frequently about North Korean human rights viοlations. He also discovered a post where North Korea called Obama a “wicked black monkey.”
