Duterte calls Trillanes gay: Halata sa kilos mo!
President Rodrigo Duterte has accused Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of being gay.
Duterte said Thursday (April 11) he knew Trillanes was homosexual because he was also gay in the past.
“Ako bakla ako noon. Admitahin ko ‘yan. Oo, totoo,” he said during PDP-Laban’s campaign sortie in Bacolod City.
Shifting the topic to Trillanes, Duterte asked the gay people in the crowd whether they believed the senator, a former soldier, was gay.
“Tanungin ko kayo. Si Trillanes ba lalaki? Isang tingin lang ninyo alam na ninyo eh. Si Trillanes ba lalaki?” he asked, to which the crowd responded in the negative.
Addressing one of his staunchest critics, Duterte said: “Trillanes, hindi ako nagsabi niyan ha. Tinatanong ko ‘yung mga sister ko na bakla. Kasi ikaw halata kita. Oo. Dalawa, tatlong tingin ko lang. Kasi ako bakla.”
Trillanes has accused Duterte and his family of amassing ill gotten wealth. He also linked presidential son Paolo Duterte, to the illegal drug trade.
