(Observer) – Rodrigo Duterte, the incendiary President of Philippines —the one who called Barack Obama “a son of a whore” and promised to swear at him at a proper moment—found some support for his anti-Americanism in the corridors of the Kremlin, Reuters reported.
“I met with [Russian Prime-Minister Dmitry] Medvedev,” Mr. Duterte said, “I told him this is the situation. They [Americans] are giving me a hard time, they are disrespecting me, they are shameless. He [Medvedev] said, ‘That is really how the Americans are. He said, ‘We will help you.’”
And they will, at least as far as swearing at Barack Obama is concerned.
