• Duterte blasts Chelsea Clinton over ‘rape’ flap


    President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday fired back at Chelsea Clinton who criticized him over his recent rape joke.

    In his speech during the 119th Philippine Navy celebration in Davao City, Duterte accused Chelsea of hypocrisy, citing her father’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.

    Chelsea was about 16 when Lewinsky worked as an intern at the While House. Bill Clinton admitted having an “inappropriate affair” with Lewinsky.

    “When your father, the President of the United States, was s—ing Lewinsky and the girls there in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?” Duterte asked Chelsea.

    The President drew public ire when he joked that he would take responsibility if government troops committed rape under martial law.

    “Not funny. Ever,” Chelsea said on Twitter.

    “Duterte is a murderous thug with no regard for human rights. It’s important to keep pointing that out and that rape is never a joke,” she said.

    Duterte said he was only being “sarcastic” when he made the comment.

    The President said he made the comment to stress his full support for government troops battling militants in Marawi City.

    1. Duterte can not let hypocrites undermine the truth. More importantly, he cannot allow foreign hypocrites to interfere with our affairs because we are not a puppet of other nations.

      Chelsea is ambitious of making a stage to be noticed. If her mother failed the US Presidency, she might have the chance because she is still young. But, she picked a wrong fight against our feisty President who is armed with truths. BTW, which is wrong. An expression of sarcasm through a joke by the Philippine President or an advancement to a young lady to make her do a blow job by your father in the past, the American President?

    2. Of all the people, with the cases that was bought to public attention regarding Bill Clinton adultery, with Chelsea being quiet about it, she is the last person qualified to comment about Duterte.

      Clean you house before you clean other people house.

    3. duterte is an obnoxious little man with obvious psychological problems.

      he loves to abuse and attack women, but runs scared from men.

      at least he is right to have an inferiority complex.
