Phillipines’ President Duterte

The Phillipines’ President Duterte has been raising a lot of eyebrows recently and on the weekend basically lost his sh*t attacking the U.S. and threatening to leave the U.N. in a rant.

You have to acknowledge that in many senses he is right!

Under his reign a drive to crush drugs have seen the extra-judicial killings of around 500 drug dealers. The U.N.’s human rights experts have been critical to this.

So, he responded. He said:

“Why are you Americans killing the black people there, shooting them down when they are already on the ground?” he asked. “Answer that question, because even if it’s just one or two or three, it is still human rights violations.”

He blasted the failure to end the war in Syria too saying “Look at the iconic boy that was taken out from the rubble and he was made to sit in the ambulance and we saw it,”

And threatened to leave the U.N saying “Maybe we’ll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations. If you’re that rude, son of a bitch, we’ll just leave you,”

All this ranting happened in a 2 hour news conference which, if you have nothing else to do, you can watch in full below:
