Philippines' Duterte calls Obama 'son of a whore'

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called Barack Obama a "son of a whore" on Monday as he vowed not to be lectured by the US leader on human rights when they meet in Laos.

The acid-tongued Duterte bristled at warnings he would face questioning by the US president over a war against drugs in the Philippines that has claimed more than 2,400 lives in just over two months.

"You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum," Duterte told a news conference shortly before flying to Laos to attend a summit.

"We will be wallowing in the mud like pigs if you do that to me."

Duterte was due to hold a bilateral meeting with Obama on Tuesday afternoon on the sidelines of a gathering of global leaders hosted by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Vientiane, the Lao capital.

But shortly after Duterte spoke, Obama appeared to cast doubt on whether such a meeting could take place.

Calling Duterte "a colourful guy", the US president said was asking his staff to find out whether a meeting would be useful.

As tough as Duterte says he is I am waiting for history to show him his war on drugs is not going to end the way he is telling everyone it will and he will have a ton of bloodshed on his hands for naught. He got voted in by telling voters he could get rid of drugs in 6 months. This guy is nothing more than a loud mouth comical joke. I am agreeing with his Obama comments as they are true.

Son of a whore? If a world domination socialist party plant who delivers an illegitimate (bastard) child that is earmarked for being the biggest mole in history is a whore, then it's probably accurate.

It translates closer to son of a female dog in heat... or in the Philippines what is called a Jippy Dog.

This is how I know Trump will win. Nationalism over Globalism or Imperialism is taking hold all over the globe. This is not isolationism, this is not trade barriers, this is a recognition of the fact that our imperialist policies, repeated regime change wars and the fact that we fund 95% of all our "coalitions" are not only turning the world against us, they are driving us all into poverty.
