De Lima: Duterte is country’s lowest, vilest man

Senator Leila De Lima describes President Rodrigo Duterte as the ‘lowest, vilest man in the country.’

She gave this statement during an ambush interview in the Senate on Monday afternoon.

The senator is reacting to the President’s warning that she will go to jail for her alleged involvement in narco-politics.

“He is the lowest, vilest man in the country sa sobrang kabastusan. God forgive him,” she said.

She further noted, “naaawa na po ako sa ating Pangulo. Tigilan nyo na po ako.”

Before walking away from reporters, she addressed a question to Duterte: “Ano po ba ang gusto nyo? May gusto po ba kayo sa akin?!”
