Duterte once again made it to the headlines when he commented about Vice President Leni Robredo’s knees during Typhoon Yolanda’s 3rd Anniversary.
Many women’s rights groups and netizens called him out, believing the remarks were sexist and rude. Even VP Robredo, who had been mostly silent about Duterte’s statements, was taken aback by the lascivious comment.
Duterte supporters remained blindly loyal yet again and defended him against the criticism he was justly receiving.
When President Duterte was asked by a reporter if he felt any remorse about his rude comments, he immediately dismissed her and justified himself.
He confidently argued that he was just trying to lighten the mood, as he was deeply disappointed of the irregularities on Yolanda rehabilitation. He was angered by the fact that only 4,000 received help when billions were allocated for the housing alone. As usual, his excuses had nothing to do with his sexist remarks.
He then slammed the reporter and the media for always high lighting what he believed were trivial remarks when they should have focused on more important matters at hand.
