Philippines’ Duterte defends kiss: ‘We enjoyed it’ 

MANILA: Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte brushed off claims of misogyny on Wednesday after he kissed a Filipina woman on the lips onstage in Seoul — saying they had both “enjoyed it”. The 73-year-old grandfather had offered a free book in exchange for a kiss during a trip to South Korea. He called a woman, Bea Kim, onto the platform during a speech on Sunday and pointed to his lips. She initially hesitated, saying she had a husband, but later offered no protest as Duterte kissed her on the lips while the mostly Filipino crowd cheered and shrieked in apparent approval. AFP
