Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called Barack Obama a “son of a whore” yesterday as he vowed not to be lectured by the US leader on human rights when they meet in Laos, AFP reported.

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.

Meanwhile, BBC reported that US President Barack Obama has cancelled a meeting with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

Calling Duterte “a colourful guy”, the US president said he asked his staff to find out whether a meeting would be useful.

“I always want to make sure if I'm having a meeting that it's actually productive and we're getting something done,” he told reporters.

    Why should he? America has no right to meddle...America wants the drug menace to continue so they can continue to control Philippines

    he said "putang ina" in tabalog a dialect in phillipines. which is translated to " your mother is a whore" that makes obama a son of a whore. the above term is also used to describe a person as a son of a bith.in obama's case that statement could be true according to far right journals in the USA

    Eradicating of drugs by any means is an internal problem of Philippines and no country should interfere with it. Only the wounded knows how deep and serious it is.

    If the Phillipines President has a resemblance of respect, then he should unequivocally apologize for the remark. If not, the citizens of Phillipines need to apologize on his behalf and kick this disrespectful mongrel into the dustbin.

    Cannot condone his language. He is not a school kid, he is the president. But, he is right about Philippines being a sovereign state. The people of the Philippines voted for him on his anti-drug policy. It is up to the Filipino populous to decide whether he stays or not.

    Unchikun Tuesday, 06 September 2016 05:09 PM

    This man is on record for saying a new UN should be formed haaded by Russia and China. Does that ring a bell to similar statements made in Sri Lanka by people who do not care too hoots for human rights. The time is right for the Phillipines to be isolated from the civilized international community until he make a public apology .
