Philippine forecasters warned that a super typhoon set to slam into the country's northeast late Wednesday may bring widespread damage similar to that wrought by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 and asked people to flee out of harm's way.
Let's see if President Duterte calls on his new crush, the Chinese, for help when the typhoon passes and the Philippines has gone to Hell, or if America gets the call again.
And we will help. As we always do.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said on Thursday he was announcing his "separation" from the United States.
He said that while in China. What is that man thinking?
On the bright side for the Philippines, the typhoon was bad but does not appear to have killed a lot of people because of precautions taken.
Seriously, what is Duterte thinking?
UPDATE: Other members of the government seek to nullify the impact of their president's statement.
