N Korea: McCain 'Fat Kid' Remark 'Declaration of War'

N Korea: McCain 'Fat Kid' Remark 'Declaration of War'

North Korea is apparently not at all happy with Sen. John McCain calling its leader a "crazy fat kid."

The saga began last week when McCain took a shot at Kim Jong-un during an interview with MSNBC.

Story continues below video.

According to The Sun, North Korea took McCain's words, along with Sen. Ted Cruz's recent criticism of the reclusive nation after the brazen airport assassination of Kim's half-brother, as acts of war.

"The service personnel and people of the DPRK are regarding the dignity of their supreme leadership as their life and soul," a statement from a government-controlled news agency read.

"The U.S. must know very well about how they react to any offensive acts against it. John McCain and Ted Cruz made a provocation tantamount to declaration of war against the DPRK. The DPRK will take steps to counter it."

McCain fired back on Twitter Wednesday with another quip:

North Korea appears closer than ever to having a nuclear weapon, which has many people worried about what Kim plans to do with it.
