“It’s good that there is international pressure sa ICC kasi binull-shit sila ni Bolton. He’s really a very far right yan sa America, bata ni Trump. He has criticized ang ICC pero ngayong na lang,” Duterte said.

“The timely word of Bolton now is quite refreshing to us lalo na ako ang pinakamaingay noon. Binastos ko sila, binabastos nila tayo (especially since I was the noisiest before. I disrespected them because they disrespected us) I only bow to the Filipino people. I will not bow to anybody,” he added.

Bolton threatened the ICC officials with sanctions if they will continue to investigate war crimes allegedly done by American troops in Afganistan. He said the US will not cooperate with the ICC, adding the ICC was  “already dead to us.”

Duterte clailns that he was the first one to bullsh*t the ICC for its interference to purely local matters.

The ICC a few months back opened a preliminary probe into the alleged extrajudicial killings committed under the Presidents all out war on illegal drugs.

“If you’ve noticed hindi naman ako nagyayabang. Tayo ‘yung nauna at hindi lang tayo pumayag. Binull-shit ko. Sabi ko p**** i** ninyo (If you’ve noticed, I’m not boasting, we were the first to bullsh*t them and I really did not allow it. I said, you son of a b*tch),” he said.

“I said do not fuck with my country. Mas marunong pa kayo kung ano gawin sa problema (You think you’re better than us and kn Natiuonow how to address our problem),” he added.

The President reiterated that he could only accept criticisms from Filipinos but not from foreigners who finds fault in his governance.

“If I fell short, then as a Filipino that is your right to criticize and even slam me. I would never, never take it against it you,” he said.
