Honestly, what’s the point in whitewashing this guy’s comments? Everyone knows what he said, so is the media in the business of trying to assuage Obama’s feeling by switching it up?

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte called Barack Obama a “son of a whore” on Monday as he vowed not to be lectured by the US leader on human rights when they meet in Laos.

The acid-tongued Duterte bristled at warnings he would face questioning by the US president over a war against drugs in the Philippines that has claimed more than 2,400 lives in just over two months.

“You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a whore, I will curse you in that forum,” Duterte told a news conference shortly before flying to Laos to attend a summit.

So, um, why is ‘whore’ changed to ‘bitch’?

President Obama cancelled a meeting with new Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, after being called a “son of a bitch” by the leader while he spoke to reporters.

In language highly unusual for any world leader — let alone from a close ally like the Philippines — Duterte told reporters in Manila that Obama should not use their planned meeting to critique the Philippine’s war on drugs.

“You must be respectful,” Duterte said of Obama,according to the AP. “Do not just throw questions.” Using the Tagalog phrase for “son of a bitch,” he said, “Putang ina, I will swear at you in that forum.”

Weird, huh?

The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, called Barack Obama a “son of a bitch” on Monday and warned the U.S. president not to question him about extrajudicial killings at a coming meeting.

Let’s just compromise and call him the son of a communist.
