Horeungen Obama… eller nogen

Duterte fandt i løbet af ugen vej til overskrifterne i MSM, der påstod han kaldte præsidenten i USA, Hussein Obama, for horeunge (putang-ina). Det er tvivlsomt om det er tilfældet, det var mere sandsynligt sjovnalisten der stillede et (vild)ledende spørgsmål og blev taget i det. Skulle det have været Hussein Obama, der fik Dutertes yndlings betegnelse for tumper hæftet på sig, så var det under alle omstændigheder i den hypotetiske fremtiden sjovnalisten stillede spørgsmålet i, Hussein Obama eventuelt kunne fortjene betegnelsen.

Transkription af hvad der blev sagt ligger på Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines  .FB side.

Question & Answer
Q: Good afternoon sir, Jerome Morales from Reuters News. Sir, there have been concerns on extrajudicial killings. And you will meet leaders, any line of communication that you have prepared to address this issue in front of other foreign leaders?
PRES. DUTERTE: Extrajudicial killings?
Q: Yes, human rights.
PRES. DUTERTE: To whom shall I address myself to? And who will be asking the question may I know?
Q: Obama sir. [no microphone]
PRES. DUTERTE: You know, the Philippines is not a vassal state. We have long ceased to be a colony of the United States. Alam mo, marami diyan, sa mga kolumnista, they look upon Obama and the United States as if we are the lap dogs of this country. I do not respond to anybody but to the people of the Republic of the Philippines. Wala akong pakialam sa kaniya. Who is he? When as a matter of a fact, at the turn of the century, before the Americans left the Philippines in the pacification campaign of the Moro in this island, there were about six million ang population ng Moro. How many died? Six hundred. If he can answer that question and give the apology, I will answer him.
I am not beholden to anybody. Iyong mga kolumnista diyan na ‘wait until he meets,’ who is he? I am a President of a sovereign state, and we have long ceased to be a colony. I do not have any master, except the Filipino people, nobody but nobody.
You must be respectful. Do not just throw questions and statements. Putang-ina, mumurahin kita diyan sa forum na ‘yan. Huwag mo akong ganunin. Tell that to everybody. Itong mga kolumnista, para ba akong tinatakot, anak ka ng — umalis kayo diyan sa Pilipinas, pumunta kayo doon sa Amerika. You write kung ano nasa isip — the lap dogs of this American. Who is he to confront me? As a matter of fact, he has too many –America has one too many to answer for the misdeeds in this country. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa tayo nakatikim ng apology niyan. That is the reason why Mindanao continues to boil.
