President Rodrigo Duterte thumbed his nose at Senator Leila de Lima for claiming her detention on alleged drug charges was purely political motivated.

‎In a speech before municipal mayors Tuesday, Duterte wondered how de Lima could remain in denial despite testimonies claiming she received drug money from high-profile drug inmates at the National Bilibid Prison when she was still Justice Secretary.

‎”Political prisoner. G*** ka ba? Anong political prisoner? Hindi ako interesado magpakulong ng—Magyawyaw ka diyan kung gusto mo‎,” said Duterte.
Duterte echoed Speaker ‎Bebot Alvarez’s claim that de Lima was the country’s number one drug lord.”

“Since six years or seven years ago, we were already a narco-politics state. Kasi paglabasan nitong mga barangay captains, ayon. Hindi natin alam ang number one drug lord pala sa gobyerno. Mga generals pati ‘yung… hangang ngayon denial pa,” said Duterte.
