South Korean President Hot Mic Trashes Biden, U.S. Congress

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol

South Korea’s Yoon Suk-yeol may be the nation’s new president, but he’s not likely to be starting a diplomatic career anytime soon. According to CBS News, “Already battling record-low approval ratings, South Korea’s President Yoon Suk-yeol has landed in trouble again after his disparaging remarks about key ally the United States were caught on a hot mic.”

The Western Journal reported, after listening to Joe Bidens U.N. speech where he said, “We’re going to work with our partners in Congress to contribute another $6 billion to the Global Fund,” President Yoon slammed Biden and Congress with a profanity-laced comment.


A triggered Yoon was captured on a hot mic saying, “How could Biden not lose damn face if these f****** do not pass it in Congress?”

The video went viral on Twitter, with CBS reporting, “f****rs” became the number one trending topic on Twitter in South Korea on Thursday.”

WJ also reported an anonymous South Korean official said, “I think it’s highly inappropriate to draw a link between private remarks and diplomatic accomplishments.”

South Korea’s opposition party leader, Park Hong-keun, said, “Yoon’s ‘foul language tarnishing the U.S. Congress caused a major diplomatic mishap.’”

This latest diplomatic flub comes right after Yoon failed to pay his nation’s respects to Queen Elizabeth II at her funeral. Yoon blamed heavy traffic.
