DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao City Bureau) – Never mind the supposedly misogynistic comment about women not fit for the Presidency, but do you believe Rodrigo Duterte when he says his daughter Sara is not running to succeed him in 2022?
As they say, history repeats itself.
Listen to Duterte then as he announced that he wasn’t running for President in 2016, nor was interested in doing so.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte is in hot water after he commented that women are not fit for the Presidency. He made the statement as he denied speculation that his daughter Sara is running in 2022 to succeed him.
Many women and advocates criticized the President, tagging his statement as misogynistic.
But Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque clarified that Duterte was misquoted, and that Duterte did not say “Hindi ito pambabae” (it’s not for women). What the President said, according to Roque was “Hindi ito pambababae” (It’s not about womanizing).
Roque said that the context of his statement had something to do with past Presidents who have been known to be womanizers or were romantically linked to women other than their First Ladies.
