Pinain ang babae! Duterte boasts: I let onlookers touch my GF’s legs during campaign
President Rodrigo Duterte unabashedly admitted making a former girlfriend a “bait” when he ran for mayor in Davao City in 2013.
In a speech before soldiers in Marawi City Monday (September 11), Duterte recalled that he had a girlfriend during the campaign season “who was really fair skinned.”
He said that when he went to Agdao on board a motorcycle, the residents all ogled at his girlfriend, who was wearing shorts.
“It’s like just like the Mautes, looking sharply like that, licking their lips. All of them were really staring very hard at her legs,” Duterte said.
He said he then asked a favor from his girlfriend.
“I told her, ‘It’s almost election. Can you do it for me and just let them touch a little?” Duterte recalled.
When his girlfriend agreed on the condition that it would just be “a touch,” Duterte said: “I told the onlookers. She was still straddling the motorcycle. They came and kneeled.”
The President has previously come under fire for sexist remarks.
In the run-up to the 2016 polls, he joked about “wanting to be the first” in raping an Australian missionary.
In another visit to soldiers in Mindanao, Duterte joked that he would let them rape up to three women while martial law was in place.
