Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte said last Thursday that he was once gay but “cured” himself after meeting his former wife.

He made the comments during a trip to Japan where he accused his political opponent Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV of being gay, claiming that the way he moved proves that.

“I said, ‘Are you sure?’ They said, ‘You ask any gay person who sees Trillanes move, they’ll say he’s gay,’” he said. “Good thing Trillanes and I are similar. But I cured myself. When I began a relationship with [ex wife Elizabeth] Zimmerman, I said, this is it. I became a man again,” he continued.

Almost every time Duterte opens his mouth, he shows us yet again what an appalling human being he is and this time is no different. He also forgot to do his research. If he had done that, he would have found out that conversion therapy does not work and that you can’t be cured of the “gay disease”. That leaves us with only one conclusion – Rodrigo Duterte is gay.
