Duterte’s hugot line: Pangit si Leila de Lima
After exposing her affairs with her former driver and supposed drug links with the convicted drug lords at the New Bilibid Prison, President Duterte has not gotten over his anger against Sen. Leila de Lima who ordered him probed for summary executions in Davao City when he was still city mayor.
“You know men judge best when they condemn,” he said at a speech in General Santos City on Friday. Unable to hide his anger against the former head of the Commission of Human Rights, Duterte also described de Lima as “ugly” which is why he won’t even spend a minute meeting with her.
“Ayaw ko naman sila patulan kasi pangit siya,” he said. Duterte has openly attacked de Lima in his public speeches, adding that he earlier directed Justice Sec. Vitallano Aguirre to build the charges against her.
“Pag sabi ko na, De Lima, go hang yourself…Alam ko na… Hinayaan ko sila Vit Aguirre,” he said. As a President, Duterte said he had ways of knowing de Lima’s activities.
