President Duterte makes jokes about critic Jim Paredes’ genitals
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is not done talking about genitals. But this time, it’s not just his penis that he discussed in public, but also that of one of his most vocal critics, musician and activist Jim Par edes.
Duterte slammed Paredes yesterday at a speech during a campaign rally in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. He said that Paredes, who often speaks against his policies, has a small penis.
How would Duterte know? Well, it’s possible he saw Paredes’sexually explicit viral video, in which the latter appears to be masturbating. Initially, Paredes denied that he was the man in the controversial video but later admitted that it was him. Paredes also surmised that certain people released the video to “neutralize” his influence.
While he said that the video was private and not meant for public consumption, Paredes apologized to his supporters and family.
Referring to the video scandal, Duterte said in Filipino: “That Jim Paredes said I’m immoral. [But] he showed his penis. Son of a b*tch, it was so small, like this.”
Using his fingers, the president indicated to the appreciative crowd how small he considered Paredes’member to be. Aside from poking fun at its size, the president also described it as “soft.”
“That’s the kind of critics I have. I could be very obscene when I speak, but I’ve never shown [my genitals],” he said.
While he has never shown his penis in a video, the president has joked that he’s willing to do other things…
“I will let other people touch it as long as they’re beautiful. There’s no problem with that. But they can only touch it,” he said as the crowd laughed.
This is not the first time that Duterte has discussed his genitals. Last week in Palawan, he bragged that he has an impressively turgid penis, one that points all the way up.
As of writing, Paredes has not released any statements reacting to Duterte’s outrageous speech.
Paredes has long been associated with the opposition. He attracted controversy in February 2017 when he berated Duterte supporters who were protesting at the People Power Monument in Quezon City.
