Duterte rants on Kim Jong Un: That chubby SOB must be stopped
President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday called North Korean leader Kim Jong a “fool” and “crazy” for conducting missile tests despite condemnation from the international community.
“Baka nga itong si Kim Jong Un, itong tarantado, you know if that guy — I do not think he is ready, but he is playing with dangerous toys, iyang buang na iyan,” Duterte said during his speech at the 113th founding anniversary of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in Quezon City.
“That chubby face that looks kind. That son of a bitch. If he commits a mistake, the Far East will become an arid land. It must be stopped, this nuclear war,” he added.
The President said the North Korean leader was “playing with dangerous toys.”
“Baka nga ito si Kim Jong-un, ‘yung t*****. You know, if that guy… I do not think that he is ready but he is playing with dangerous toys, ‘yang buang na ‘yan,” he said.
Duterte said a confrontation with North Korea with the threat of nuclear war was dangerous.
“It must be stopped itong nuclear war because a limited confrontation and it blows up here, sabihin ko sa’yo, the fallout could deplete the soil, its resources at ewan ko kung anong mangyari sa atin,” he said.
In April, leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) expressed concerns over the nuclear and missile tests being conducted by North Korea and urged “self-restraint” from the communist nation amid rising tensions in the region.
