It's No Wonder They're Pals.
Donald Trump and Philippine president, Rodrigo Duterte, seem to like each other - a lot. Trump just has a baked-in fondness for his fellow despots. They're like peas in a pod.
It's not entirely clear that Duterte was inspired by Trump when he announced that his soldiers should shoot female rebels right where Trump is fond of groping women.
Duterte, a former provincial mayor, told a group of former communist rebels to “tell the soldiers…there’s a new order from the mayor. We won’t kill you. We will just shoot your vagina.”
“If there is no vagina, it would be useless,” he said, appearing to imply that women are useless without their genitals.
The President’s Communications Office included the comments in the official transcript of a speech but replaced the word “vagina” with a dash.
