President Rodrigo Duterte Christmas Message

Rodrigo Duterte is the new President of the Philippines. The UN and the US have previously raised concerns for his war on drugs and corruption. He rejected all criticism vehemently. This is his Christmas message to the Filipino people.

Can you imagine, Obama or any head of state in the UK or Europe do anything like this? After watching so many politician speeches and messages, sanitized to a point where most people just yawn, a public message like this, especially from a President, seems so bizarre. It is hilarious and yet at the same time raises a lot of questions about governance. 

Have you seen the video? What are your thoughts on it?
