Philippine President, Rodrigo Duterte, has a conflict apparently with the US Ambassador Philip Goldberg.

In the latest speech from Duterte, he says that he had a fight with Goldberg and calls him "Annoying" and a "Homosexual":

"I had a fight with their ambassador. That gay son of a whore. He pissed me off."

Duterte met with both Goldberg and John Kerry in late July to discuss the response to Manila winning an international court case against China at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at the Hague.

"Kerry... is “okay, but I had an argument with their ambassador, that bakla [homosexual]. Son of a bitch, he really annoys me.”

 

The feud between Goldberg and Duterte stems from the time that Duterte was still a presidential candidate. During the campaign, Duterte made a joke about a gang rape episode that took place during his time as governor. He said the rape of a young woman in Davao City, where he served as mayor for 22 years, was only a tragedy because he himself did not get to have sex with her first.

Goldberg at the time replied “Any statements by anyone, anywhere that either degrade women or trivialize issues so serious as rape or murder, are not ones that we condone.” Zerohedge reports.
