BREAKING: Duterte called Goldberg a “son of whore” because he placed his bet on Roxas, ‘yellow’ losers
President Rodrigo Duterte has gone to great lengths in denying he ever called United States President Barack Obama a “son of a whore.” But he confirmed hurling this insult at US Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg because he was pushing for defeated presidential bet Mar Roxas.
“Ang pinutangina ko si Goldberg. Why? Because si Goldberg during the last election, tinanong siya sa statement yung nangyari dito, which was really an actual narration of the events. Alam ko kukuhanin niya Roxas e, itutugtog niya last minute,” said Duterte referring to Goldberg’s comment on his rape joke about an Australian missionary who died after being gang raped in Davao prison hostage taking years ago.
“But he was looking for it so inunahan ko na. Ang tawag niyang sa Ingles: stealing one’s thunder. May bibitawan siyang mabigat unahan mo na. Ito yung nangyari,” said Duterte.
Duterte claimed Goldberg was “in love” with Roxas an his “yelow” supporters. ”Kasi ang nagdadala niyan ang yellow, yung natalo. Bakbakan palagi, walang hinto iyan kasi eleksyon naman, kaya ito hindi (sila nanalo). E ako, bahala na kayo,” said Duterte.
Duterte said that as diplomats, Goldberg and the Australian ambassador, who also slammed Duterte for his rape joke, should know better than to dip their hands in the elections of their host country.
”Kung galing lang sila sa mga autocratic states, I could understand. But itong dalawang ito, kung may utak ba naman, panahon ng eleksyon and they were asked of an issue against me. Sana nagsabi na lang na eleksyon ngayon baka maka-ano tayo, you ask me later on. That would have been a proper decorum of an ambassador,” said Duterte.
He said he himself has a lot of things to say about American presidential candidates in the on-going campaign but he has restrained himself because his statement “could affect the Filipinos there.”
“You know, people judge best when they condemn. Ang pinakamahusay na husga ng tao iyong husga lalo na sa kaparaturan, kasiraan ng kanyang kapwa tao. Hindi pa nga ako tapos nagsasalita pinapaalis na,” said Duterte.
