Sep 23 - South Korea president caught on hot mic insulting US Congress as 'idiots
 

 
South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol was captured on a hot mic reportedly disparaging American lawmakers as "idiots" shortly after he met with US President Joe Biden in New York.

"It would be so humiliating for Biden if these idiots don't pass it in Congress," Yoon was heard telling aides in a now-viral clip, according to a translation by The Washington Post.

Yoon and Biden met Wednesday at the Global Fund's Seventh Replenishment Conference in New York City.

The South Korean president's remark was apparently in reference to Biden pledging $6 billion in funding to the Global Fund, an international organization that aims to defeat HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria.

The $6 billion in funding from the US would need approval from Congress.

South Korea's presidential office on Thursday said that Yoon's comments were not directed at the United States, according to The Post.

The news outlet reported that Yoon's spokeswoman said Yoon was actually speaking about South Korea's parliament and that he did not mention Biden's name, but a similar-sounding Korean word.

Michigan GOP Rep. Peter Meijer quipped about Yoon's apparent insults in a tweet, saying, "hey, only we get to say that."

Nothing to see here. Great way to distract we're promising 6 billion on foreign aid but yet paying off student loans and reparations are an issue

One silver lining is most (all) of that aid (if you’re referring to Ukraine) is coming out of our military budget.

Got no problem funding a war against an imperialist authoritarian superpower when that money would otherwise go to bombing the Middle East and subsaharan Africa in “peacekeeping” missions with massive amounts of collateral damage.

Yep!

People don’t understand the moneys already allocated. Our bloated military budget half the time ends up funding R&D to conglomerates that really don’t need the money, but the person they hired convinced congress it’s a worthwhile investment. I’m a firm believer that any company receiving government grants and funds shouldn’t be able to bonus their executive team. You want to take 500 mill from Uncle Sam? Totally fine, pay your employees and 100% of that money needs to go into actual R&D.

I can guarantee you it's related to gas prices. Which were historically low due to what?

Yeah that's the thing about east Asia, they actually want America there

Even Vietnam was/is cosying up to the U.S., I remember Dubya Bush visiting them

It's because they all dispute Chinese claims in the South China sea and just general anxiety about a powerful neighbor
