The former rebel soldier turned Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, made a comment on the recent statement of President Duterte in Japan while meeting the Filipino community there.

Trillanes said in retaliation to recent gay jokes on him. He said, Duterte has deep desire on him, and suggested that the Commander in Chief is only hiding under his Macho image to cover up his true feelings for him.

“Nagdududa na ‘ko sa mga pahayag ni Duterte sa ‘kin, parang meron talaga syang malalim na pagnanasa. Baka cover lang nya ang mga pagpapasiga-siga nya,” Trillanes posted in his tweeter.

The recent gay comment was made during the President’s meeting with the Filipino community in Japan. He hinted that the Senator is gay and asked members of the Filipino LGBT community among the audience if they can confirm Trillanes’ sexuality while claiming that he was also gay in his younger years.

“Ako, bakla ako noon. Sinong bakla dito? Bakla man ako noon. Mabuhay ang bakla ng Pilipinas (Who is gay here? I used to be gay),” Duterte said.

“Ang bakla marunong magtingin yan so kayong mga bakla, tanungin ko kayo, ano si Trillanes (Gays can sense and identify fellow gays.  Now I ask you, what do you think of Trillanes?),” the President  asked.

Duterte then remembered in an event when a person sitting beside him said that Trillanes is gay.

“Tapos kinalbit ako [ng katabi ko] sabi, ‘sir, bakla ‘yan (Trillanes).’ Sabi ko, ‘Totoo ka?’ Sabi niya, ‘Magtanong ka kahit sinong bakla at makita ‘yang gumalaw,” He said.

Duterte added that unlike Trillanes, said he was able to “cure” his being gay when he married his first wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman, and when he met present partner, Honeylet AvanceƱa.

“Mabuti na lang pareho kami ni Trillanes pero nagamot ko ang sarili ko noong kami na ni Zimmerman,” Duterte said.

“Nung nakita ko si Mutya sabi ko, ‘Ah, eto na’, naging lalaki ako ulit,” he added.

President Duterte is in Japan to deliver a keynote address at the 25th Nikkei Conference on the Future of Asia international business forum with Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo and to meet and greet the Filipino community.
