Well , wasn't the prime minister of Malaysia involved in a quite serious dispute with Obama ? Or was that the Phillipines / Anyhow there were heated words .

Duterte has faced condemnation from human rights campaigners, diplomats and the UN for inciting a war on drugs that, according to official figures published on Sunday, has led to 2,400 deaths in just two months. The defiant Philippine leader has responded to critics with a string of outbursts, including labelling the US ambassador to Manila a “gay son of a whore”, telling the Catholic church “don’t # with me”, and accusing the UN of issuing “#ting” statements about his anti-drugs policies. Obama joins a long list of people whose mothers’ purity have been called into question by Duterte, including Pope Francis, Philippine bishops and a murdered journalist, as well as the drugs traffickers who are the main targets of his domestic law and order policies.
