President Donald Trump was blasted online after attacking former Vice President Joe Biden while overseas.
Trump, who could not even spell the VP’s five-letter last name correctly, leveled the attack prior to playing golf.
In the tweet, Trump also admitted he has more “confidence” in dictator Kim Jong-un than his own national security advisors.
North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Bidan a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

The internet was shocked, both by the content of the tweet and by Trump violating the unwritten rule that domestic politics stay at the nation’s shores when the president travels overseas.
Here is some of what people are saying:
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
This alone should be an impeachment charge. https://t.co/yUHp2JPXTU

If there were any sane people left in this administration, they'd use the 25th Amendment and put the Fruitcake in Chief in a rubber room.

If I were advising Iranian Supreme Ali Khamenei, I would encourage him to write a letter along these lines "Dear Donald Trump, big-handed president! Congrats on the Mueller hoax investigation proving no collusion & no obstruction. May you defeat sleepy Joe Biden! etc" https://t.co/ZDqJt1pSpsADVERTISEMENT

Yeah, it's sending you a signal that stupid flattery can get someone anywhere with you. But it's good you're no longer threatening war with North Korea, maybe if Venezuela and Iran's governments gave you some stupid compliment, you'd also some threatening them? https://t.co/6vl0hP129n

All the typos and misspellings…are they on purpose? Why would they be on purpose? Is it a staffer messing with Donald? No matter what the reason, Putin wins and we all lose. Donald is an illegitimate president installed by Russia. https://t.co/WOz8KdPHVI

There are 53 Republican Senators and 198 House Republicans. It's simple: Ever single one of them should be denouncing this pathetic loser and his unpatriotic, unAmerican behavior. https://t.co/OsIKGG3v3q

Trump — better pals with Kim Jong Un than Joe Biden.
I'm not sure that's the campaign pitch he thinks it is. https://t.co/bvNpRtOs1P

Contradicting his National Security Adviser John Bolton who, only yesterday, said the missiles were a violation of a UN Security Council resolution. Note: POTUS is tweeting from Tokyo before kicking off a day that involves golf and sumo wrestling. https://t.co/XD7Tkgs0dq

Quite a statement as he prepares to golf with Shinzo Abe — Japan views these tests as violations of UN resolution, and John Bolton affirmed that view YESTERDAY. Not an optimistic start to the State Visit, to say the least. https://t.co/xfGWDoUlp6
