Duterte and Marcos Facebook fan pages are spreading an article claiming that Queen Elizabeth hinted that US President Barack Obama is afraid of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
The articles published by blogs like du30newsinfo.com, newsfeedsociety.tk, filipinonewsonline.blogspot.com, and tartey.com claimed that Obama is probably about to support Duterte’s ongoing war against drugs in his country.
There was even a quote attributed to the British monarch, saying: “To my understanding my brother Obama may have fears that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is doing exactly what his people wanted, I do not see anything bad with Obama calling Senator de Lima ‘abnormal.’”
According to the articles, the queen made the statement during an interview with bbc-channel.com, which, upon checking, is another source of fake news.
A quick check at the source, thetimes, which was written in a small font size at the end of the article, led us to the satire site thet1mes.com.
Even the statement within the queen’s quote, about Obama calling Senator Leila de Lima “abnormal” is a fake article, which we already busted.
