Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte went on a rant against President Barack Obama.  The two leaders were to meet in Laos for pre-scheduled meetings about human rights issues, when the controversial Duterte grew angry with President Obama.  He called Obama a “son of a whore,” and asserted, “I will swear at you.”

President Obama seemed to downplay the incident, and called Duterte a “colorful guy.”  But Obama’s aides later cancelled the planned joint meeting and rescheduled for a later date.

This is not the first instance in which Duterte has harangued a prominent figure.  He previously called the Pope a “son of a whore,” and U.S. Ambassador Philip Goldberg a “gay son of a whore.”

After the incident with President Obama, Duterte expressed regret through a spokesperson who said, “It came across as a personal attack on the US President."  The spokesperson also said, "We look forward to ironing out differences arising out of national priorities and perceptions.”
