Rodrigo Duterte clapped back at Chelsea Clinton by bringing up Monica Lewinsky

0

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte, celebrating the 119th anniversary of his country's Navy in his home city of Davao on Wednesday, had some harsh words for Chelsea Clinton after the former first daughter had previously slammed Duterte's comments about rape, according to The Washington Post


“When your father, the president of the United States, was screwing Lewinsky and the girls there in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?” Duerte asked in reference to Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern with whom former President Clinton had an affair.

Earlier, Chelsea Clinton had blasted Duterte for saying he would take responsibility for the crimes committed by his soldiers under his recently imposed martial law, even if they "raped three women."

Of Dutere's comments, which he said were made in jest, Clinton tweeted "Not funny."

She also responded to another user, tweeting that "Duterte is a murderous thug with no regard for human rights. It's important to keep pointing that out & rape is never a joke."

Chelsea Clinton is far from Duterte's first target. He has previously slammed former President Obama, journalists, and human rights campaigners. 

The Filipino president has a questionable human rights record, but that didn't stop President Trump from recently applauding Duterte's "unbelievable job" on his drug program, in which targeted killings have lead to the deaths of thousands.
