WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Unknown to many, former U.S. President Barack Obama has filed an verbal insult lawsuit in a Virginia District Court against Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
Obama is suing Duterte for the latter’s very public anathema several years ago against the then obligatory American President. He called Obama ‘Son-of-a-b*tch.’ (In Tagalog, ‘P*tang ina mo.’)
Lawyers for Duterte however challenged Obama’s explain and presented just one star witness: Google Translate.
The lawyers presented Exhibit A showing that according to Google Translate, ‘P*tang ina mo’ literally translates into ‘Put your mother.’ “So what’s shaming about that,” they asked the judge.
The judged concluded and lawyers for Obama immediately forsaken their case.
All’s good that ends well.
