MANILA — President Rodrigo Duterte is the lowest, vilest man in the country, Senator Leila de Lima said Monday following the President’s fresh tirade against her.
“For me, he’s now the lowest, vilest man in the country,” de Lima told reporters in an interview.
The senator said that she felt more pity for the President now, describing him as “going ballistic”.
“The President’s foul mouth has again desecrated the hollowed grounds of Malacañang with personal attacks against me,” de Lima said in a statement.
“I cannot resist asking the President, what do you see in me that you find so sexual? Why is your mind so fixated on my sexual aspect? You are so obsessed with me?” she added.
Duterte, during the oath-taking of Malacañang Press Corps officers earlier, hit de Lima anew for her claim that inmate Jaybee Sebastian was a government asset.
He meanwhile suggested that Sebastian was perhaps de Lima’s “sexual asset”.
He further reiterated that de Lima was involved in “narcopolitics” and that she “screwed not just her driver but the entire nation”.
De Lima asked the President anew to stop harassing her.
“Stop harassing me. What do you want from me? Do you like me?” she added. Azer Parrocha/PNA/northboundasia.com
