When John McCain lost the presidential race in 2008, many accredited his loss to his war-happy demeanor. After 7 years in the Middle East, the country wanted a president who avoided needless international conflicts. But despite his loss, McCain is still stiring up trouble internationally — but not in the way you might think.
This week, McCain called Kim Jong-un a “crazy fat kid.” Predictably, the North Korean dictator didn’t take kindly to the remarks.
Kim has been known to take retaliatory actions against anyone willing to oppose him — just ask the men who he executed with anti-aircraft guns — and this situation is no different. Since Kim doesn’t have direct access to McCain, he’s threatening the entire United States in response.
