On Wednesday, Senator Leila de Lima received a backlash from President Rodrigo Duterte for judging his action earlier this month for kissing a Filipino woman in his official visit in South Korea.
The clash of De Lima and Pres. Duterte about the kissing issue got a lot of criticism in social media:
Duterte kissing publicly a fellow filipino with consent & no malice. While Leila DeLima committed adultery to former driver/bodyguard Ronnie Dayan. An honest-man Duterte a punching bag of human rights group, Catholic Church, yellow opposition from their own Hypocrisy & Stupidity

• Meet & Greet foreign junkets – Billions of investments coming in. • Duterte as the kissing bandit – The OFW says No Malice. Ask Delima how did Mrs. Dayan feels.

Duterte threatened to released the supposed sex video featuring De Lima and her alleged paramour, “There’s a lady. Nakakulong. Sabi niya bastos daw yung ginawa ko,”
he said during his speech about land reform beneficiaries in Iloilo .
He also added “Kung may screen lang kayo dito, ipapakita ko ‘yung X-rated niya. Nakalimutan niya siya ang pinakabastos dito. You forget conveniently that you started the most, pinakabastos na magawa ng isang senador.”
The act of the President was said to be “sickening” by De Lima who is currently detained on drug charges.
On June 3, In Seoul, the intended kiss was just to hype up the crowd of Overseas Filipino Worker and said to be “pure showbiz”.
Also, if more women are offended and will sign a petition calling him to step down, Duterte will resign from his position.
