In his attack on Chelsea Clinton, Duterte recalled Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky at the White House while he was president of the United States. Duterte asked Chelsea if she also slammed her father because of his illicit affair.

“Kagaya ni Chelsea, she slammed me for the rape joke. I was not joking. I was being sarcastic. You listen to the speech… Sabihin ko sa kanya, when your father, the President of the United States then, was s—ing Lewinsky and the girls there in the White House, how did you feel? Did you slam your father?”said Duterte during a speech in Davao on Wednesday.
