President Rodrigo Duterte introduced a new standard of beauty Monday (Sept. 26) when he made ABS-CBN journalist Doris Bigornia the epitome of attractiveness.
In his speech before members of the media in Malacañang, Duterte said he is “loyal” to the mothers of his son Sebastian’s two children as “a matter of beauty.”
He then proceeded to define what beauty is for him.
“What is beauty? Beauty is like Doris Bigornia. She’s not really… I mean, we’re talking about cosmetics but beauty deep in the heart. You know, ‘yan ang beauty,” the President said.

Bigornia, who is part of the Malacañang Press Corps, has been covering Duterte since the campaign season.
Regardless of gender, the President said a person’s beauty shows when they deal with their fellowmen “fairly, squarely and give everyone his due.”
