'This is a world of hypocrisy, Who among you doesn't have mistress'- President Rodrigo comes under fire for defending adultery

After defending his close powerful political ally house of representative speaker Pantaleon Alvarez for adultery, President Rodrigo Duterte has met a furious backlash from the people of Philippine.

Speaking, he said and ask that, 'This is a world of hypocrisy, who among you here does not have a mistress'? But the comments drew sharp rebukes in the conservative and mainly Catholic nation where divorce is publicly ban.


'All of it is sexist and misogynistic to explain improper behaviour simply by virtue of being male,' Senator Risa Hontiveros said.

'It sends a message that undermines the many struggles and gains so far for women's rights and gender equality.' Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez made headlines in the past week when he publicly admitted having fathered eight children, six of them with two women other than his wife.

Duterte, in the televised speech to government employees in Manila, admitted his comments defending Alvarez's affairs were 'a chauvinist statement'.

'But really there are so many women and you have a short time in this world. This comment however drew laughter from the crowd.

'The thing there is that you're able to support the children. That's it.'

Because speaker Pantaleon Alvarez is not a Christian, he is entitle to many women. 

Duterte, 72, whose first marriage was annulled and who is in a long-term relationship with another woman, has openly boasted about having mistresses and using Viagra to have sex with them.'Who isn't entitled to happiness? Ask these lawmakers, how many of them have two, three or four mistresses? Ask them,' Duterte said in his first public comments on the Alvarez controversy.
