BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte insulted former US president Barack Obama over comments he made regarding the Philippines’ human rights record, as he spoke in Jerusalem on Sunday.

Duterte took issue with Obama’s public criticism and his ‘castigation’ of him, saying that he should have instead gone to the United Nations with complaints.

“Obama, you can go to hell, you son of a bitch,” Duterte said.

“He is not a civilised person anyway, being the president of a republic, you ought to know the basic rules. You do not criticise.”

The Filipino President has history with Obama, previously calling him a ‘son of a whore’ over his criticism of the Philippines’ drug policy.

Duterte is in Israel for four days as part of a regional tour, the first such visit by a Filipino leader for more than 60 years.

LOL Well, Duterte will be well liked in Israel, as the Israeli establishment also don’t like him.

And liked Obongo even less, but inter-state relations are not about liking people or not… Look, Obama seems very sympathetic but he was a real snake who backstabbed and blackmailed US long time friends. Trump is pretty antipathic but you can end with win-win deals with him, hey no other POTUS was ever able to meet a NoKo leader…
Now yeah, Duterte is really a j**k.

Obama was as productive and helpful for the U.S. as pancreatic cancer.

I share Pres. Duterte’s estimation of Obama – but his May be higher than mine.

Please, Duterte, avoid to sing or take a few years lessons before trying again, my ears are bleeding.
Now, as usual, Duterte is very diplomatic… He’d just have to advance the fact that since Obongo promised to close Gitmo and finally didn’t, considering his administration was practising torture and death penalty, Obongo was poorly placed to lecture anyone about human rights… Diplomacy is the way to tell people to go to hëll politely 😉

The funny part (or sad), is that he is the son of a prostitute.
