Duterte speech unexpectedly interrupted by giant COCKROACH (VIDEO)

Duterte speech unexpectedly interrupted by giant COCKROACH (VIDEO)

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte was rudely accosted by an unlikely assailant during a campaign rally on Wednesday night in the form of a rather large cockroach.

The 74-year-old was mid-sentence when his aide tried to shoo the bug away but it merely scrambled down Duterte’s chest before he nonchalantly swatted it away.  

Not missing a beat, Duterte exclaimed: “It’s Liberal!” seizing the opportunity to take a pot shot at his political rivals in the main opposition Liberal Party, before he stomped the floor, presumably crushing the insect.

With that confrontation out of the way, he then concluded his two-hour speech endorsing senate candidates.
