North Korea calls US presidential candidate Joe Biden a "rabid dog" who should be "beaten to death"

There were zero punches pulled in their statement.

Former Vice President, current Democratic Presidential candidate and Barack Obama's BFF Joe Biden has come under attack by North Korea in a statement on Friday morning that really does not pull any punches.

Two weeks after Biden issued a statement referring to North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un as a "murderous dictator" and attacking President Donald Trump's policies with the country, the Korean Central News Agency then issued their own commentary on Biden.

Or, as they call him, Baiden.

It begins: "A crow is never whiter for often washing. Baiden, still going reckless, not coming to his senses though he was censured and rejected by all people, must be a rabid dog only keen on getting at others' throats. Such rabid dogs are second to none in their craftiness in seeking their own interests."

However, it was the closing statement that has received the most attention:

"Rabid dogs like Baiden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late. Doing so will be beneficial for the U.S. also."

While the statement was released on Thursday 14 November (North Korean time, so sometime this morning over here), Biden has, at the time of writing, not responded to the commentary, instead focusing his attentions online to the NRA - in light of another school shooting in California this week - and demanding that President Trump release his tax returns:
