Pres­i­dent Duterte makes jokes about critic Jim Pare­des’ gen­i­tals

Sun.Star Pampanga - - NATION! -

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.
