Diplomatic row as Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte calls US envoy ‘gay son of a whore’

MANILA – The Philippines’ firebrand President Rodrigo Duterte has sparked a fresh diplomatic row with his colourful language, calling the US ambassador “gay” in comments that prompted Washington to summon Manila’s envoy to complain.

In the latest of series of tirades, Duterte used a local Tagalog language homophobic slur to express his displeasure with US Ambassador Philip Goldberg in televised comments made Friday.

“As you know, I’m fighting with (US Secretary of State John Kerry’s) ambassador. His gay ambassador, the son of a whore. He pissed me off,” Duterte said

Are the whores complaining?

      Not sure about mom.

  • The amazing “cultural sensitivity” of the Left:
    “Let’s send a flaming faggot to the Philippines as our American Ambassador — he will fit in perfectly with Philippine society”.

    Yep, just as the Benghazi experience taught them that their openly homosexual Ambassador Christopher Stevens was so well-accepted in Libyan culture.

    I marvel at the superior cultural wisdom of Left-wing American Politicians.

      from what little the media let out it seems the arabs had a great “time” with the ambassador even after death.

    The Tagalog word at issue is bakla.

    As to whether the whores are complaining, you’ll have to conduct a survey in Angeles City, that toddlin’ town northwest of Manila that not even Mt. Pinatubo could shut down. (There are abundant videos on Youtube.)

    Just talked with my brother this morning, he and his family live in Cebu and think President D’ Is doing a fine job. The drug dealer/criminal body count keeps rising and nobody is shedding any tears. Remarkable

    Funny how they say the Ambassador was never Identified as being gay. I took this picture of the Gay Flag mounted in front of the Chancery of the US Embassy in Manila on June 18, 2016. We must be a gay country……

    Boy I wonder how the world will react to a Trump presidency? I suspect that Trump will appoint ambassador that don’t affront allies

      an ambassador who would donate toe tags for dead drug pushers in manilla.

    Well we already had a trans diplomat with Madeleine Albright.
    So what’s the big deal…..and then that bull dyke Janet Reno.

    If he was a political hire by Kerry then he probably is queerer than a three dollar bill,and gayer than a tree full of owls who cares?. the fact is that the problem is with kerry a characterless clay golem.
