Philippines President SLAMS Obama: ‘Son of a B***h’

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has recently referred to President Obama’s mother in a very unpleasant and unflattering manner, and it has Obama threatening to cancel their impending meeting.

Not going to lie, I have to agree with Obama on this one. I mean, why would you want to meet with someone who exhibits abusive language (whether he is right about it is completely up to you to decide) toward you?

Duterte said that Obama had better be civil during the meeting or he would “swear at him.” That seems a little hypocritical, but what do I know.

It’s one thing for us to insult our President, but that is because we have to live with his crappy “leadership.” It’s something else entirely for the President of another nation to insult and swear at him.

This whole situation started after Obama said that he would bring up the drug war in the Philippines during their conference, which has left 2,400 people dead.

Obama suggested that the United States would always support providing criminals with due process, even in drug-related crimes. He also called Duterte a “colorful leader,” but insinuated that the meeting could and would be canceled if it failed to be constructive and productive.

“What I’ve instructed my team to do is to talk to their Philippine counterparts to find out is this in fact a time when we can have constructive, productive conversations,” he said.

Would it be appropriate for the President of the United States to cancel the meeting over this, quite frankly immature behavior? Or should he risk being ridiculed on the world stage at the hands of a man who thinks that it is okay to murder drug-offenders? If you were in his shoes, what would YOU do?

Personally, I would refuse to converse with a man who threatened me in the media, and did so in a rather hypocritical manner.

While many would agree that it is not our business what other countries do, legally, others would say that we have a duty to protect those who are being intimidated and abused by their government. What do you think we should do about the matter? Should we do nothing, or are we morally obligated to save those who can’t save themselves?
