Manila, Philippines - President Rodrigo Duterte did not like Senator Leila De Lima’s criticism of his actions in the issue of the West Philippine Sea. He said he will tie the opposition senator to a firecracker or kwitis and launch it with her on the Spratlys.
Duterte showed despise once again to the lady senator, as his avid detractor lambasted him once more, the Chief Executive said during the interview in Malacanang on Thursday, June 27.

Ang una ng pinakaanong ginagawa ko, kung ano-anong pinag-isip nandoon sa presohan si De Lima. Kung ano na lang ang sinasabi, attack, ganon. Ikaw, itali kita ng kwitis na malaki, ikaw ang pa — pasiritin ko doon sa Spratlys,” Duterte said during Senator-elect Bong Go’s oath taking.

The President said jokingly that he will buy the biggest rocket fireworks in Bulacan, the countrys firecrackers capital, for De Lima’s trip to the West Philippine Sea. And he would also add the senator’s former lover, Ronnie Dayan, tied to a firecracker and launched it to Spratlys.

“Kung ano-anong pinag-isip… nandoon sa presohan si De Lima. Kung ano na lang ang sinasabi, attack, ganon. Ikaw, itali kita ng kwitis na malaki, ikaw ang pa… pasiritin ko doon sa Spratlys” Duterte said in a media interview Thursday night.

“I will order in Bulacan the greatest… the biggest kwitis that we can ever make. Itali kita, sindihan ko. Mauna ka na doon [I will order in Bulacan the greatest, the biggest rocket that we can ever make. 

I’ll tie you to a rocket, and launch it. You go ahead there],” he added.
Duterte again suggested that De Lima was in a sex video scandal, and called her “an immoral woman exhibiting your sexual hunger.”
De Lima, who is currently detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center over drug-related charges, recently said that Duterte could be impeached for saying that the Chinese could fish within Philippine waters that are part of the exclusive economic zone.
The opposition senator had earlier said Duterte’s statement on allowing China to fish in the country’s territorial waters because of friendship was “repugnant” to the Constitution, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and the arbitration ruling favoring the Philippines in the South China Sea dispute.

She said Duterte’s statement indicated “a pattern of an open and brazen disregard of the rule of law and betrayal of the national interest.”

Duterte turned more serious and warned De Lima to shut up, insisting that she has no moral authority to criticize him.
“No, you do not have the moral right. Not even… Kaya kung ayaw mo pag-usapan ‘yan kasi sabi mo may mga anak ka, eh ‘yung… Do not tempt too much na ‘pag marunong ka. You keep quiet" he said.
