President Rodrigo Duterte slammed detained Sen. Leila de Lima for saying that his gesture to kiss a married overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Seoul was “sickening.”
He threatened to release the alleged sex video of De Lima.
“Kung may screen lang dito, ipapakita ko ‘yung X-rated niya (If there is a screen here, I’ll show you his X-rated,” he said in his speech during the Certificate of Land Ownership Award in Cabatuan, Iloilo on Wednesday.
The President defended the “kiss,” saying he asked permission from the woman.
“Sabi niya bastos daw ‘yung ginawa ko. Eh nagpermiso ako, tinanong ko. Sabi niya what I did was indecent, bastos (She said what I did was indecent, lewd. But I asked permission. I asked her),” he said.
He went on with his tirade against the detained senator, calling her the most “lewd” senator.
“Nakalimutan niya siya ang pinakabastos dito (She forgot that she is the most lewd here). Kulang ka sa (She lacks) common sense for you are desperate, when you begin to be judgmental and you forget conveniently that you started the most lewd act that a senator can do,” Duterte said. /ee
