Following the pronouncement of Sen. Leila De Lima regarding the President having a romantic interest with her as he continues to threaten her with different legal matter and even meddle with her love affairs, President Rodrigo Duterte broke his silence on the video.
"Susmaryosep. Alam mo every time I view the video, I lose my appetite. Nawawala ang gana ko sa kanya,"he said referring to a video where De Lima is allegedly put in a compromising situation.
"Those are serious charges. She should not adopt a nonchalant attitude about all of these things. Kasi I said she opened the portals of narco-politics to take hold in the national level. There will never be an honest election,"he said to answer the plead of the senator to stop harrasing her.
He then compared the drug situation in the country to the scenarios described in the book. The Cartel by Don Winslow and Gangster Warlords by Ioan Grillo.
"You read The Cartel, it’s online you can buy it. Ioan Grillo’s another one and you would recoil in horror because it is exactly what we are experiencing today,"he said.
"Ang magkaron ng gusto sa kanya ‘yung mga, hindi man ako guwardiya, hindi man rin ako motorcycle cop. Hindi rin ako convict."he added on De Lima's remark.
Meanwhile, De Lima still faces many allegiations on her links on the drug trades.
