'What Was Your Reaction When Your Father Was f***ing Monica Lewinsky?' Philippines President Duterte Hits Back At Chelsea Clinton After She Criticised His 'Joke'

Philippines president Duterte hits back at Chelsea Clinton

Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte has denounced Chelsea Clinton as he tried to defend a 'joke' he made about his troops raping women.
The controversial president - who has overseen the murder of thousands of drug users and has now declared martial law as he fights an ISIS insurgency - used Clinton's father's affair with Monica Lewinsky to attack the former first daughter.

Chelsea joined a chorus of condemnation of Duterte's remark that his soldiers could rape up to three women each and he would 'take responsibility' after declaring martial law in the city of Marawi.

Duterte said today:  'These whores, they hear "rape". Like, like Chelsea, she slammed me. I was not joking, I was being sarcastic. Listen to the speech. I do not laugh at my own jokes.'
'I will tell her, when your father, the president of the United States, was f***ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?'
The former first daughter had tweeted  'Not funny. Ever' in reaction to the news of Duterte's remarks on rape.

Chelsea Clinton condemned his remarks with a tweet that said 'Not funny. Ever'. Duterte hit back: when your father, the president of the United States, was f***ing Lewinsky and the girls in the White House, how did you feel?

In a second post she wrote: 'Duterte is a murderous thug with no regard for human rights. It's important to keep pointing that out and that rape is never a joke.'
Duterte's troops are locked in battle with ISIS fighters in the city of Marawi in the south of the country. 
He then accused American soldiers of raping women in the Philippines and Japan, without giving details, before returning to Clinton.
'It is a crime actually committed by soldiers, mostly Americans in Okinawa,' he said, referring to several rape cases involving U.S. servicemen stationed in Japan, most recently last year. 

"But, we never heard of a Filipino. But I am just warning them that anything they do, I have to answer for it. I take full responsibility for your foolishness. I speak sarcastically." 
'You Americans, like Chelsea, be careful because you live in a glass house,' he said.
'I repeat, when President Clinton was f***ing Lewinsky, what was your statement or your reaction?'

 It was not the first time Duterte has made a joke about rape.
He caused outrage in the lead-up to his presidential election win last year when he recalled a 1989 prison riot in which an Australian missionary was killed, and inmates had lined up to rape her. 

In what was intended as a joke, Duterte said the victim was "beautiful" and as mayor of Davao city where the riot took place, he should have been first in line. He later apologized and said he meant no disrespect to women or rape victims.
The Australian and American ambassadors to Manila voiced their disapproval at those comments, but Duterte reacted furiously then while insisting he had been taken out of context.
