Netizens react to Duterte's newest rants against Obama, EU

In what could have been a typical afternoon in the life of the Filipinos, President Rodrigo Duterte and his foul mouth made an appearance and once again, launched a new tirade against his critics - Barack Obama and the European Union (EU).

To Mr. Obama, President Duterte had said, ¨Go to hell.¨ To the EU, however, the President had somehow pushed a suggestion by saying, ¨You can go to purgatory because it will be crowded in hell.¨

Since his campaign, the maverick Duterte had been making statements that are unconventional, albeit crass. His supporters had always seen it as a ´breath of fresh air´, and compared to the smooth-talking and almost patronizing tone of most politicians, it is indeed.
