Presidential Communications Sec. Martin Andanar clarified that he was just joking when he said that officials of the European Union like to have sexual intercourse.
The communications secretary made the controversial statement during a gathering of President Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters in London.
Andanar said, that due to his banter with the Visayans, he jokingly said that EU representatives, who frequently criticized the Duterte Administration, like to have sex.
However, Andanar insisted that he will not apologize for his controversial statement.
“Mag-uusap kayo, nag-eexchange kayo ng mga idea, yung mga update mo sa pulitika, at the same time nag-bibruan din kayo.” Andanar said during an interview with DZRH. “Majority kasi ng nandoon ay Bisaya. Alam mo naman ang visayan humor natin.”
Recently, the President got angry at the EU for their constant comments on the alleged human rights abuses of the current administration. These criticisms led to the removal of the Philippine National Police from the administration’s ‘war-on-drugs’.
