Previously, Democrats concerned when our elected politicians appeared on the international stage and were ridiculed, but the left is ignoring the recent dig at their political heroes by foreign leaders at a United Nations meeting in New York City on Thursday.
Apparently unaware that his microphone was still on, South Korean President Yoon Suk-Yeol replied in a “foul” manner, attacking both Vice President Joe Biden and the Democrat-controlled Congress.
The Daily Caller said that Biden offered $6 billion at the Global Fund’s Seventh Replenishment Conference to battle AIDS, TB, and malaria globally, but the cash would require congressional approval.
“With bipartisan support in our Congress, I have pledged to contribute up to $6 billion to that effort,” Biden said. “So I look forward to welcoming a historic round of pledges at the conference resulting in one of the largest global health fundraisers ever held in all of history.”
“How could Biden not lose damn face if these f—ers do not pass it in Congress?” Yoon asked his aides on a hot mic Wednesday, Fox News reported, citing the South China Morning Post.
“It would be so humiliating for Biden if these idiots don’t pass it in Congress,” he said, according to the Washington Post, as he departed the gathering.

The Truth Press announced:
“Another South Korean official told Yonhap that Yoon “wasn’t speaking publicly on the stage but in passing, and although I don’t know who recorded it and how, I actually think it should be verified.”
“I think it’s highly inappropriate to draw a link between private remarks and diplomatic accomplishments,” the official reportedly said. “It’s quite regrettable that a diplomatic disaster is being talked about over something like that when he is doing everything to complete a demanding schedule in t he national interest of the Republic of Korea.”

The remark sent shockwaves through the South Korean diplomatic community, as the country’s national security as well as security in the region hinges on a good relationship with the United States, which has around 28,000 troops stationed there.
“He wasn’t speaking publicly on the stage but in passing, and although I don’t know who recorded it and how, I actually think it should be verified,” a South Korean official told reporters afterward, according to Yonhap. CONTINUE READING…
