I’ll slap Satan, take over in hell, Duterte jokes at rally

MANILA, Philippines — When he dies and goes to hell,  President Rodrigo Duterte will slap Satan, cut off his tail, and turn it into a stew.


That’s a joke Duterte himself made on Tuesday at the campaign rally of his party, the PDP-Laban, in Cainta, Rizal.

“When I die, and you die at the same time, we’ll have a parade,” he said in Filipino. “We’ll go to Satan’s throne. And in front of you, I will slap that [CURSE WORD] Satan and cut off his tail. We’ll turn into balbacua [stew]. And then we’ll drink.”


“Don’t be afraid of Satan. So Satan wants to scare us? Don’t worry. We’ll soon take over. If there’s an election there, we’ll surely win,” he continued.

“Don’t be afraid, I tell you, if you go to hell. There will be a lot of us. And there will be a lot of pretty women. The pretty women will be with us. So you think they’ll go to heaven? The pretty one will also go to hell,” he added.

Early on in his term, Duterte drew flak from critics for his tirades against the Catholic Church, religion, and even God.

Despite this, the president said he was a “deeply religious person.”

Duterte’s friend and spiritual adviser is Pastor Apollo Quiboloy, who is on the “most wanted” list of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation for being a suspected sex trafficker.
