President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday dropped a bombshell when he called out in his speech a senator for being an “immoral woman” for having an affair with her driver who allegedly collected money for her during the election campaign.
In his speech at the 115th police service anniversary at Camp Crame, Duterte lambasted the female senator, whom he did not identify, for heavily criticizing the government in its anti-drug campaign that resulted to many deaths.
“Here’s a senator complaining. One day I will tell you that her driver himself, who was a lover, was the one collecting money for her during the campaign,” said Duterte.
“An immoral woman, insofar as the driver’s wife is concerned, it’s adultery,” he continued.
“Here’s a woman who funded a house of a lover and yet we don’t say any complaint about it,” the President added.
But Duterte later clarified that he was unsure whether the driver was giving the money he was collecting from unscrupulous individuals to the senator.
“But in fairness, I would never say [clearly] that the driver gave (the money) to her but by the looks of it, she has it,” he said.

Duterte added that the senator has no right to complain about the recent killings of drug suspects in the country when she herself has “a very sordid personal and official life.”
