Donald Trump should wear a traditional Philippines shirt more often.

Donald Trump had himself a nice friendly visit with Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte, who has a nasty habit of murdering people he thinks are associated with the drug trade (or just being addicts), and somehow, the topic of all that murdering just barely came up, if it did at all. Why would Trump want to talk about anything that just makes a great friend of the US touchy, after all? Instead, Trump told reporters he and Duterte have a “great relationship,” which for Donald Trump could mean anything from “we’re doing some real estate deals” to “I remembered his name all by myself.”

As reporters yelled questions about whether Trump would push the subject of human rights with Duterte, Trump smiled and ignored them, and then Duterte put the meddlesome reporters in their place, much to the delight of the Leader of the Free World. Duterte shut down the reporters, saying

“Whoa, whoa […] This not a press statement. This is the bilateral meeting.”

He continued, “We will be discussing matters that are of interest to both the Philippines and … with you around, guys, you are the spies.”

Trump, who has repeatedly dismissed reporters as “fake news,” responded with a chuckle. “You are,” Duterte repeated, looking out at the group of journalists gathered in the room.

Then Philippine security guards hustled the reporters out of the room, and, according to the New York Times, “jostled some of them roughly,” which surely was also a hoot for Trump to see. He’s no doubt already asked Duterte where he can get some press-jostlers of his own.

According to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the two leaders talked about lots of important stuff, and some trivia, too:

The conversation focused on ISIS, illegal drugs, and trade […] Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines’ fight against illegal drugs.

Translation: When Trump said in April that Duterte was doing “a great job” on dealing with drugs, he meant every word of it, and for all we know he mentioned human rights by saying they’re no big deal. Trump had the chance to stand up to Duterte in his own capital, but instead he was a Manila folder.

The Daily Mail (yes, we know) reports that Duterte’s own spokesthug, Harry Roque, denied “human rights” even came up in the meeting. “The issue of human rights did not arise. It was not brought up,” Roque insisted after the leaders met:

‘It was President Duterte who brought up with President Trump the drug menace in the Philippines, and the US president appeared sympathetic and did not have any official position on the matter but was merely nodding his head,’ Roque said.

‘There was no mention of human rights. There was no mention of extralegal killings,’ he added in a separate statement to DailyMail.com. ‘There was only a rather lengthy discussion of the Philippine war on drugs with President Duterte doing most of the explaining. Trump seemed to be appreciative of his efforts.’

So the minor matter of Duterte’s police having killed thousands of people without trial was either briefly mentioned, or not mentioned at all, depending on which authoritarian liar’s spokesperson you believe. This is where we feel compelled to refer you all, again, to the New York Times’s Pulitzer-winning photo essay “‘They Are Slaughtering Us Like Animals'” (it’s very graphic, just so you know) to get some sense of what isn’t at all important to Donald Trump.

Sunday evening, Duterte literally crooned a love song to Donald Trump at a gala dinner for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit, serenading Trump with the sentimental Philippine ballad “Ikaw,” which he said he was performing “upon the orders of the commander in chief of the United States,” who can tell him what songs to sing but not to please stop murdering people in the streets. The song includes the line “You are the love I’ve been waiting for.”

Can anyone doubt the sincerity of the sentiment? Duterte has to love Donald Trump, especially since that mean old Barack Obama dared to criticize all the murder, which led Duterte to diplomatically call Obama a “son of a whore” last year.

Despite his reluctance to press Duterte on the whole “killing thousands of his own people” thing, Trump has at least mentioned “human rights” a couple of times during his Asian tour, the Washington Post notes:

In a speech to the South Korean parliament, Trump called North Korea “a hell no person deserves,” and he laid out in sometimes gruesome detail the abuses Pyongyang has perpetrated — including purportedly killing babies and carting the bodies away in buckets.

And in Japan, he met with families of people who were kidnapped by North Korea 40 years ago and forced to train spies how to blend in while in Japan, a gesture other presidents have made.

But unlike other presidents, Trump doesn’t seem to be aware of any human rights violations outside North Korea. Maybe if Fox & Friends ever reports on Burma’s genocide of its Rohingya minority, he’ll get around to it. And when he does, he’ll mention the Rohingya are Muslims, so maybe there are bad people on both sides.

Later asked why he would joke about that, he said that he wasn’t joking, and that he was truly sorry he didn’t get to rape her.

    Major embarrassment at the Phillippines fancy dress party as both Trump and Duterte turn up dressed as Bond villains.

    In the picture up top it looks like Trump’s limbering up his cock holster.

      He always does that. It’s kinda weird. When Baldwin does his impression, it’s the main thing – also this reminds me of Hastert doing the same thing.

    Something tells me that “manila folder” will become a staple around here.

      They will have to score some good shit first, count on it.

        The mutual admiration is more than enough.

          Refer to Trump sniffing at the debates. You might reconsider.

    I don’t believe any spokesperson’s assertions about Trump raising any of these issues with anybody. I think he just galumphs his way through all these events, soaking up the sucking up.

    Exhibit A is his supposed confab with Putin:
    “He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ ” Trump said. “And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it. I think he is very insulted by it.”

    This is so full of typical Trump tells it’s not even funny. The claim that he’s asked the question so many times is Trump-speak for never asking it at all.

    The thing about Vlad being “insulted” is right out of the 10-year-old-caught-stealing-a-Milky-Way playbook.

    This conversation never happened. Bank on it.
