US condemns North Korea's Obama 'monkey' jibes

The United States has condemned descriptions in North Korean state media of President Barack Obama as a "crossbreed" and a "wicked black monkey".

A spokeswoman in Washington DC said the comments were "ugly and disrespectful".

The Korea Central News Agency had released stories that graphically described the US leader as a "monkey" in comments by North Koreans in the days after he paid a state visit to South Korea.

"How Obama looks makes me disgusted," said Kang Hyuk, a worker at the Chollima Ironworks Factory, in a translation by the NK News website.

"As I watch him more closely, I realise that he looks like an African native monkey with a black face, gaunt grey eyes, cavate [sic] nostrils, plump mouth and hairy, rough ears.

"He acts like a monkey with a red bum, irrationally eating everything," Mr Kang added. "Africa's national zoo will be the perfect place for Obama to live, licking breadcrumbs thrown by visitors."

Jung Young-guk, an official of the Ocean Management Office, added that the US leader "had a disgusting monkey look, even though he is wearing a fancy suit like a gentleman."

Elsewhere, KCNA described Mr Obama as a "clown" and a "dirty fellow".

The White House often ignores some of the more colourful propaganda bandied about by the North Korean government and media, but reacted swiftly to the latest outburst.

"While the North Korean government-controlled media are distinguished by their histrionics, these comments are particularly ugly and disrespectful," said Caitlin Hayden, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, in a statement.

North Korea employed similarly graphic descriptions of Park Guen-hye, the South Korean president, after her summit with Mr Obama, labelling her a "crafty prostitute" under the control of "a powerful pimp" in the US leader.

"Park Guen-hye's recent behaviour with Obama was like a mean, immature girl begging gangsters to beat up someone she does not like," KCNA reported.

In another story dated April 22, the agency described Michael Kirby, the chairman of the United Nations commission of inquiry into North Korean human rights abuses as "a disgusting old lecher."

"He is now over 70, but he is still anxious to get married to his homosexual partner," KCNA said.

"This practice can never be found in the DPRK [which] boasts of sound mentality and good morals," it said, adding that it is "ridiculous" for a homosexual to pass judgment on human rights issues.

Well it's just true...someone says something about him in a book...BOOM Call a press conference. Some Commie dictator calls him a mean name...BOOM Dignify it with a response.

Thin skinned, narcissistic, way too butthurt to be an effective leader...

I think he's a ****** president, but not for any of the reasons which you do. Which is to say I criticize him for legitimate things.

He didn't speak to it. But falcon chef doesn't worry about little things like facts.

Falconcheff doesn't worry about anything... big things, little things... facts, lies, statistics included. I used to let facts, lies and statistics bother me, but that made for some frustrating conversations here. Life is better when I just don't care what the rest of y'all think...

Right. You don't care about anything. Well, accept this. This obviously bothered you.

If you say it enough maybe people will believe it.

It's always fun when people contradict themselves in the same post.
