Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Makes Yet Another Disgusting Rape Joke

President urged to extend martial law in Philippines

President urged to extend martial law in Philippines

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has continued his disturbing habit of making flippant remarks about rape.

It is not clear whether Duterte's comment will affect the island nation's chances of the Miss Universe pageant being hosted on their shores again.

During his presidential campaign, Duterte made light of the rape of an Australian missionary worker, Jacqueline Hamill.

"What I don't like are kids [being raped]", Mr. Duterte said at a tourism event in his Davao City hometown Friday night.

Duterte on Friday earned the ire of various groups after he said that while he condemns raping of children, he would "congratulate" someone who would rape a Ms. Universe despite the risk of prosecution or even death. "So I think we should go by that", he said.

Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, criticized Duterte in several tweets, calling him a "murderous thug with no regard for human rights", saying: "rape is never a joke". I was mad she was raped but she was so handsome. In May, Duterte said that he would allow his soldiers to rape up to three women during an operation in the southern part of the country.

"I thought, the mayor should have been first", he said, later telling critics that his words were not meant as a joke and refusing to apologize.

"Scarier and more upsetting for me is that people still laugh at them", she said in a statement.

"We need to understand what he really said".

In the latest incident, Duterte, who was speaking in his rambling style, also boasted to the diplomats that he faked tuberculosis to escape mandatory military training in college. Pero pag sinabi mo na, "I have human rights so when I kill somebody...", he said.

But he also reiterated his vow to continue his bloody war on drugs despite accusations that thousands of suspects had been killed by police and vigilantes since he took office.
