Putang Ina: Duterte Offends Obama (Bienvenido Macario, USA, 09/08/16 4:38 am)

Before traveling to Laos, Philippines president Duterte was asked how he will explain the extrajudicial killings to Pres. Obama.

Watch the video feed:


Duterte responded: "I am a president of a sovereign state and we have long ceased to be a colony. I do not have any master except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody. You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions. Putang ina I will swear at you in that forum," he said, using the Tagalog phrase for son of a bitch.

I watched the video and Duterte never referred to anyone as a son of bitch. It would be different if Duterte said Putang ina mo (you) translated You (mo) son of a bitch.

But the news all over the world is that Pres. Duterte called Pres. Obama a son of a whore.

Obama cancelled the meeting and I hope all loans and aid to the Philippines will be suspended thus giving Pres. Duterte a good reason to confiscate the unexplained wealth of the oligarch-traitors.

The Philippine stock market suffered because of Pres. Duterte's outburst. But I am very sure the poorest of the poor in the Philippines already reduced to eating garbage have not invested in the Philippine stock market. They do not have the smarts to do so.

JE comments: I'd say they don't have the money.  I watched the Duterte clip, and his "putang ina" strikes me as an abstract oath, not an epithet directed at President Obama.  But the damage is done.  Note Duterte's news conference rhetoric:  later in the same speech he remarks about not giving "a shit" about those who observe his behavior.  When it comes to combative, tough-guy credentials, Duterte out-Trumps even Trump.

My understanding is that despite the corpses and the profanity, the Filipino people are on board with the Duterte leadership style.  His approval rating is in the 90% range.

The US-Philippines rift will soon pass, and for one reason:  China.
