There are too many prohibitions in these “modern times,” President Rodrigo Duterte said on Saturday.

He said he is the kind of person who likes to joke around even with members of his female security staff, who he playfully spanks in the rear.


Mr. Duterte made the observation after saying in jest that San Beda College should have allowed female students during his time so that he would have done better in class, especially if the women were pretty.

“The problem in these modern times and the living past, everything is prohibited,” he said in a speech before San Beda law graduates.


He said he is a person who likes to joke around.

“Ako palabiro ako eh, pati mga babae na pulis pinaghahampas ko yan, yung pwet ginaganun ko, diyan sa Malacanang pag manit ulo ko, dala ko folder ko, isa ka pa. (I like to joke around. The police women, I spank them on their bottoms in Malacanang if I’m ill-tempered. I get my folder and tell them, you’re part of the problem),” he said, demonstrating how he spanks them with a folder.

He said western mores have gone too far.

“Wala na tuloy ang gana nang buhay natin (Our lives now are no longer fun),” he added.

But he said he is aware if sexual harassment is taking place.  TVJ
