Obama Cancels Meeting With Philippine President For Allegedly Calling Him Son Of A Bit*h

U.S. President Barack Obama cancelled his first meeting with Philippines counterpart Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday after the blunt-spoken Duterte described him as a "son of a bitch", casting a shadow over a gathering of Asian leaders in Laos.




Duterte, who has been roundly criticised abroad for a 'war on drugs' that has killed about 2,400 people since he took office two months ago, said hours later that he regretted his comments "came across as a personal attack" on the U.S. president.




"President Duterte explained that the press reports that President Obama would 'lecture' him on extrajudicial killings led to his strong comments, which in turn elicited concern," the Philippines government said.

"He regrets that his remarks to the press have caused much controversy," it added in a statement released at the summit in Vientiane, the capital of Laos.

The White House had earlier said Obama would not pull any punches on his concerns about human rights abuses in the Philippines, its treaty ally, when meeting Duterte.

Duterte responded to that with his "son of a bitch" comment to reporters on Monday before leaving to join fellow leaders of Southeast Asian and East Asian leaders for the summit.

Obama learned about the insult as he emerged from the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou, China. At a news conference, he said he had told his aides to speak with Philippine officials "to find out is this, in fact, a time where we can have some constructive, productive conversations."
Hours later, his aides said the meeting had been cancelled.

Instead, Obama plans to meet South Korean President Park Geun-hye on Tuesday, said Ned Price, spokesman for the White House National Security Council - a meeting where the response to North Korea's latest missile tests is expected to be on the agenda.

Haba! What a word coming from a president

Obama should go and kill himself. The punisher (Rodrigo) is so real and can't be pushed around by no one. The man has a mind of his own and his people voted massively for him

So because the people voted for him means he is right by calling someone "son of a whore"... how will you react when someone calls you a "fool"? Just common fool o! And please tell yourself the truth. Don't let sentiment cloud your sense of knowing what's right and what's wrong.

Having a mind of your own, is way different from being rude and insulting.

One can firmly put their foot down,or come off as blunt, without throwing verbal punches or being condescending.

Obama was pained

Pure Nigerian said...

That picture of Obama up there is him meeting with Putin. He met with Putin and they didn't still agree on Syria but you don't hear Putin cursing his counterpart out loud to reporters. Anyways, Obama isn't the only one that the Phillipines president has insulted. He said same thing to Pope Francis and also called John Kerry, 'gay son of a whore'. So, if you are making excuses on his behalf because he was voted massively for by his people, wait till he says something offensive to your race.
