Duterte kisses Filipina worker in S. Korea

Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte sparks outrage by kissing woman on stage in South Korea

President Duterte is in South Korea for an official trip.

Duterte told the crowd it was just for fun, but critics condemned what they said was his latest macho antic degrading women.

Kim then proceeded to kiss Duterte on the lips.

Duterte's previous comments on women, including rape jokes and incitations to shoot women guerillas in the vagina have resulted in angry charges of misogyny against him.

Opposition Sen. Risa Hontiveros said that even though the kiss was consensual, it was a "grave abuse of authority".

"It is unfortunate that the woman found it her obligation to publicly defend the act as 'no malice, ' when it is the President who is duty-bound to explain not only because it was upon his prodding but he is bound, as a public official, by rules of ethics to explain his unruly conduct", Salvador wrote in a Monday statement.

"Kissing an ofw in front of a public event in another country is so unethical, the line between ethical and unethical, moral and immoral are blurred to Duterte as long it serves his personal interests", another woman wrote. As the Philippine president leaned in for the kiss, the crowd enthusiastically cheered.

Aside from growing alarm over his bloody crackdown against illegal drugs which has left thousands of mostly poor drug suspects dead, Duterte has come under fire from women's groups for sexist remarks, including one where he told troops to shoot female insurgents in the genitals during a public outburst against communist guerrillas. "His repeated acts of machismo is meant as entertainment to hide the reality of his rapidly slipping popularity".

In this case, the unidentified woman told the state-run Philippine News Agency in an interview that "there was no malice" to what the president did.
