I’m Used To Being His ‘PULUTAN,’ Leni Says On Duterte’s Flirtations

  • Vice President Leni Robredo said the President would always tease her, even during formal events
  • Duterte recalled how he and Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez once ogled at Robredo’s knees during a Cabinet meeting in Malacañang
  • Duterte said he would notice Robredo’s legs whenever she wears short skirts, even suggesting that seeing them was “a view”

“I’ve gotten used to his jokes,” cracked Vice President Leni Robredo on the latest teaser President Duterte shot at her.

She said the President would always tease her, even during formal events.

Actually nasasanay na ako kay Presidente parati akong nagiging pulutan. Gaya ng sabi niya, parang ano iyon – pabirong pagsabi. Ano naman, medyo nasasanay na ako kay Presidente,” Robredo said in an ambush interview in Tacloban City on Tuesday.

 During the third anniversary of the onslaught of Super typhoon “Yolanda” in the city, Duterte recalled to the audience, mostly survivors of the typhoon, how he and Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez once ogled at Robredo’s knees during a Cabinet meeting in Malacañang.

Duterte said he would notice Robredo’s legs whenever she wears short skirts, even suggesting that seeing them was “a view.”

“You know Ma’am Leni would always wear skirts which are shorter than usual. At one time, Dominguez asked me come closer because I was far from them. But I told him, ‘Come here. Look at (Robredo’s) knees,’” he said as he looked at the Vice President.

“I wanted to tell her, ‘Ma’am maybe next time you just wear shorts… But after our third meeting, she was already there at the far end of the table. I lost the view during the Cabinet meeting,” the President jestingly said.

Duterte then sang a line from Anthony Castelo’s song “Malayo Ang Tingin.”
