Florida Sen. Marco Rubio doubled down on his tweets attacking the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in an interview on Fox News Wednesday morning.



“This is a strange person, Kim Jong Un. He’s a weirdo, and the government is strange and weird,” Rubio said.

Fox host Sandra Smith recalled the Senator’s recent tweets regarding the North Korean leader, saying, “…You’ve been tweeting a lot over the past 24 hours and some have looked at your tweets as not only as criticism of Kim Jong Un but some have seen them as a criticism of the president, and you just called Kim Jong Un a ‘weirdo who would not be elected assistant dog catcher in any democracy.’ The president — he’s talking about Kim Jong Un as somebody who appeared to be funny. He’s smart, the president said of him. So, could you clarify?”

Rubio responded, “There’s nothing to clarify. The president is the President of the United States. He was democratically elected by the people of this country and in two and a half years, people will have a chance to vote for him or vote against him. Kim Jong Un has never been elect to anything.” (RELATED: RUBIO BLASTS MEDIA OVER COVERAGE OF TRUMP’S HISTORIC SUMMIT WITH KIM JONG UN)

Continuing to condemn the regime, Rubio concluded, “Their government is a cult that’s become almost religious like. It’s a very strange and weird place. It is what it is and I’m not going to ignore that reality. That’s just a fact. These are not things I’m making up. They’re real.”
