Duterte: When I go to hell, I'd tell Satan that De Lima should be queen there


President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday admitted that he's on the road to perdition because of the life he's lived, but said that Senator Leila De Lima should be in an even worse standing in the afterlife.

Duterte made the pronouncement during before the Filipino community at the Royal Thai Navy Headquarters in Thailand, where he once again went on a tirade against De Lima, who he has accused of being responsible for the proliferation of illegal drugs in the New Bilibid Prison.

“Sigurado man, ‘pag sa edad, siyempre mauna ako, sigurado — wala naman akong ambisyon, impyerno talaga ako. Iyan ang totoo. Pero maghintay ako sa kanya, pagdating niya, sabihin ko talaga, ‘Senyor Satanas, dumating na ang reyna na hinihintay mo.’ Eh totoo man,” he said amid loud cheers.

De Lima, a fierce critic of Duterte's war on drugs, is currently in jail over drug charges. She has denied all accusations, saying that her criticism of Duterte made her the President's target.

Duterte, however, denied that the charges against De Lima were made up.

"Kami pa ang kasalanan, si Vit Aguirre pa. Classmate ko iyan. Cum Laude iyan sa law school. Kami ba naman mag-imbento ng—I will never never never iyong ganoon lalo na kung babae mag-imbento ako ng istorya," he said. 

"Hindi talaga ako papayag sa ganoon maski dito sa Cabinet. Do not do it. Huwag iyan na mag-imbento ka ng kaso ganoon tapos no bail, pakulong mo. Ngayon, mag-isa siya," he added. 

Duterte poked fun at the plight of De Lima, who is detained at Camp Crame where she has been reduced to writing handwritten statements against the administration.

“De Lima, gusto ako ipatanggal. Ano ang ginawa? Iyan ang tragedy sabi nga nila eh. The tragedy is siya iyong Secretary of Justice, hawak niya iyong presuhan. Siya mismo went into trafficking. No bail iyan. Sige sulat, sige mura sa akin. Ayaw pang admitahin. Nang free advertisement na siya sa sarili niya,” Duterte said.

“Sabi niya, ‘Hindi iyan ako.’ Pero iyong aso na palakad-lakad doon sa tabi ng kama, iyong aso niya dala-dala niya kapag magpunta siya sa labas,” Duterte added, referring to the recent visit of De Lima's pet dog at the detention center.

Duterte also had choice words for what he called De Lima's thick face.

“Alam mo, hinanahanap ko talaga. Wala akong na akong nakita sa Pilipinas, hinahanap ko ang babae na napakakapal ang mukha, siya lang,” he said.

“Alam mo, lapitan mo iyan, laslasan mo ng blade, hindi tatalab. Buhusan mo ng asido ang mukha, ganoon lang iyan. Balewala eh,” he added.

Duterte said prison guards should stay away from De Lima, who had admitted that her driver Ronnie Dayan had also been her lover. Dayan was also implicated in the cases.

“Kaya sabi ko, iyong mga guwadiya na pulis, ‘Psst, huwag kayong lumapit diyan ah. Huwag kayong magpakita sa selda palakad-lakad. Palayo kayo. Doon kayo sa ibang preso. Ma-isyu pa tayo niyan.’ Iyong guwardiya pati iyong driver, lahat naratsada,” he said.

“Mabuti nalang hindi siya nagpasyal-pasyal ng Davao kasi kung gabi na at wala na akong mahanap na iba, nah, sorry na lang,” he added. —JST, GMA News
