He has been tagged as suffering from speaking before thinking that clearly leads to scandalous comments.
His mistakes such as cursing the Pope Francis for a major traffic concern last time he visited Manila. He even cited that he had peed in a soda bottle inside his car just to relieve himself.
This past weeks, Duterte has been in hot water over statements on the rape of Australian missionary from way back 1989.
In addition to this, is the annulment decision from estranged ex- wife Elizabeth Zimmerman made was made public with findings of the psychologist deemed destructive to his candidacy.
