OUCH! Foreign Leader Calls Obama a ‘Son of a Whore’

Obama worried

Barack Obama is slated to meet with Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, in Laos. Duterte has a warning ahead of the meeting just in case Obama plans to lecture him on “human rights abuses.” In the last two months, more than 2,400 have turned up dead in the Philippines in the government’s war on drugs.

Before he boarded his plane to Laos, Duterte held a press conference in which he gave Obama a very stern, and X-rated, warning.

“You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum.”

It is now in doubt whether Obama will actually meet with Duterte. After his “son of a whore” statement, Obama referred to Duterte as “a colorful guy.” He also said, “I always want to make sure if I’m having a meeting that it’s actually productive and we’re getting something done.” His staff is in process of determining whether the meeting will take place.

The Philippines has a major drug problem and Duterte’s vow to wage an unprecedented war on illegal drugs is what catapulted the 71-year-old to victory in May. He has said that tens of thousands would be killed and he has made good on that promise with 2,400 being killed this far.

Speaking to reporters at the G20 Summit about his meeting with Duterte, Obama said that while he understands that drugs are a major problem in the Philippines and of course still began his lecture of Duterte.

“The issue of how we approach fighting crime and drug trafficking is a serious one for all of us. We’ve got to do it the right way,” he said.

“Undoubtedly, if and when we have a meeting, this is something that’s going to be brought up. And my expectation, my hope is that it could be dealt with constructively.”

This lecture is what prompted Duterte to call Obama a “son of a whore” and warn him about what will happen if he attempts to lecture him to his face.

It looks like Obama is already starting to back down from his meeting lest Duterte makes good on his promise to curse him before the world.
