Size matters — Duterte

IN a recent campaign speech President Rodrigo Duterte resorted to colorful language as he derided the opposition’s shortcomings and talked about penis size and jocosely boasting he was “highly equipped.”

Speaking at the PDP-Laban campaign rally in Puerto Princesa City on April 4, Duterte recalled walking around naked in his dormitory when he was still a student.

“Sa totoo, ang lalaki is measured by his character,” Duterte said.

“Pagwapo-gwapo ka diyan tapos paglabas ng t—, maliit pala,” he added, drawing laughter.

“Pasalamat ako sa tatay ko. At least pinalabas niya ako sa buhay ‘highly equipped’,” Duterte said.

Before his speech delved on character and masculinity, Duterte attacked opposition senatorial candidate Chel Diokno.

“Eh, wala parang magsalita tsetse… ‘Yung tatay niya, doon ako saludo. Pero ito? Kalaki pa ng gilagid mukha, ‘yung... Pangit,” Duterte said.

If Diokno would tell him he was not much of a looker himself, Duterte said he’d challenge the Otso Diretso bet to a match on who had more girlfriends.

“Ang sabihin niya ‘pangit ka rin.’ Oh sige, totoo ka? Harapan diyan sa Luneta, magdala ka. Ilan ang girlfriends mo?” Duterte said.

“Sige kay dalhin ko ‘yung akin. ‘Yung pinakamaraming girlfriend, ‘yon ang gwapo,” he added.
