‘Call boy’ as President? Duterte pokes fun at mayor’s photo in ‘bikini’

President Duterte threw shade at a local chief executive for his steamy photos, asking Filipinos to think twice before voting for someone who was trained to be a “call boy.”

Duterte, during his taped public address, did not name the politician though he’s the same mayor who Duterte twitted for having a disorderly and disorganized cash aid distribution process.

The President said he did not give the “power to distribute” the cash aid to this mayor because “they can’t organize.”

Duterte warned Filipinos not to get fooled by a certain politician’s dramatics.

“Nakita ko nga sa Facebook kanina lahat ng naka-bikini ang g*** tapos meron isang picture pa dun sinisilip niya iyong ari niya. Iyan ang gusto nyo? Ang training parang call boy. Naghuhubad sa picture, naka-bikini, tapos ‘yung garter tinatanggal niya (I saw on Facebook earlier that stupid is wearing a bikini then he has one picture where he’s peeking at his sex organ. That’s what you like? Trained like a call boy. Taking off his clothes in picture, wearing a bikini, then he’s removing the garter),” he said.

“Iyan ang training ng presidente—maghubad at magpapicture at magsilip, magyabang sa kanilang ari kagaya ni Paredes (That’s the training to become a president—strip and take a picture and peek, be boastful of their sex organs like Paredes),” Duterte added.

The President was referring to musician-activist Jim Paredes, whose sex tape went viral in 2019. Paredes is one of Duterte’s staunchest critics.

Duterte’s latest tirade cames on the heels of his criticisms of local chief executives who “can’t organize” the distribution of cash aid.

He said he has given the task instead to the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Department of National Defense (DND), and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to distribute the cash aid to low-income residents badly hit by the two-week enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) from August 6 to 20.

“And you know it has happened several times, he has blamed many people other than himself,” Duterte stressed.

Though the President never mentioned his name, only Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is the current local chief executive in Metro Manila who previously portrayed sexy roles in movies.

Before he became a politician, Moreno starred in numerous films, some of which have steamy scenes.
