This upstart Filipino newcomer to the world stage has become a monster of his own mind & it has gone to his head.
He thinks he is at the same level as the world powers. The clown that is Rodrigo Duterte. Drunk on power. SAD CASE.
‘He says’ Please do not bring up the fact that I am encouraging my people to murder their friends & fellow citizens because they enjoy their pot or whatever.I have the right to do that because I am the BOSS.. Does not this person answer to the parliament of his country before setting forth on his murderous rampage of his citizens at will ?.
It seems he uses this descriptive rhetoric because he has been haunted by the fact that women in his country are deserting his homeland for westerners who can provide a better life than men like he can? Does he call them whores?
He is offering murder, abuse & dictatorial control. THIS IS YOUR LEADER & YOUR LIFE NOW PHILIPPINES .
Enjoy his tenure. He has indicated he is the leader of a nation of whores.Long live his short reign.
His time will come & the sooner the better.Enjoy it while you can Rodrigo Duterte
Obama is the leader of a great nation of multicultural peoples.
What is Rodrigo Duterte…?Has he a life or just an attitude??
Mr Duterte said he regretted that his comments “came across as a personal attack” on Mr Obama, after the White House cancelled a scheduled meeting.
The Philippines leader has been roundly criticised outside his country for a “war on drugs” that has killed about 2,400 people since he took office two months ago.
The White House had earlier said Mr Obama would not pull any punches on his concerns about human rights abuses in the Philippines when meeting Mr Duterte.
“Who is he to confront me?” Mr Duterte had told journalists ahead of the ASEAN summit in Laos.
“You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum.”
The Philippines Government moved to soothe tensions between the nations after the meeting was cancelled.
“President Duterte explained that the press reports that President Obama would ‘lecture’ him on extrajudicial killings led to his strong comments, which in turn elicited concern,” the Government said in a statement.
“He regrets that his remarks to the press have caused much controversy.”
In a separate statement, Mr Duterte said he remained committed to Manila’s alliance with the United States.
“Our primary intention is to chart an independent foreign policy while promoting ties with all nations, especially the US with which we have had a longstanding partnership,” he said.
Instead of meeting Mr Duterte, Mr Obama is now planning to meet South Korean President Park Geun-hye, where North Korean missile testing is expected to be on the agenda.
“I always want to make sure that if I’m having a meeting that it’s actually productive and we’re getting something done,” Mr Obama said.
Mr Duterte won the presidency in May after he promising to suppress crime and wipe out drugs and drug dealers.
At least 2,400 people have been killed since he took office on July 1, including 900 in police operations against drug pushers.
The rest are “deaths under investigation”, a term human rights activists in the Philippines say is a euphemism for vigilante and extrajudicial killings.
The controversial leader has used the “son of a whore” insult in public previously, using the term to curse Pope Francis and US ambassador Phillip Goldberg.
