After being addressed as ‘son of whore’, Obama cancels meeting with Philippine President

US President Barack Obama is facing a lot of unpleasing experiences now-a-days. Most of the other countries round the world do not seem to be really happy with the President cool and are trying to insult him in rather immature manner. While Obama’s arrival in China for the G20 summit meet, his plane wasn’t provided with a staircase on his landing and he had to disembark from Air Force One through the plane’s belly, post which a lot of heated arguments took place between Chinese and American officials. One official from the host country was also heard screaming: “This is our country! This is our airport!” IF this was not humiliating enough for the President, the controversial new Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte addressed Obama as ‘son of whore’. As a reaction to that, Obama lost his cool and scrapped his meeting with Duterte.

At a press conference before Duterte was set to fly to Laos to meet Obama and other leaders at the ASEAN conference, the leader was asked how he might react if the US president should question him over his severe anti-drug war, which has killed some 2,400 people since he assumed office in June.
“Who does he think he is? I am no American puppet. I am the president of a sovereign country and I am not answerable to anyone except the Filipino people,” he said.
You must be respectful,” Duterte added, referring to Obama. “Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum. We will be wallowing in the mud like pigs if you do that to me.”
“I just heard about some of this,” referring to Philippine President’s comment, Obama subsequently reporters at a press conference in China. “But I have seen some of those colorful statements in the past, and so, clearly, he’s a colorful guy”, Obama added mocking him.

The Philippine President later apologized Obama saying that the ‘whore’ remark was not a personal attack on the US President. In a response to this, Obama in his statement warned Duterte not to criticize drug war.

Let’s wait and watch where this statement war will end!
