For Senator Leila de Lima, President Rodrigo Duterte is just like this famous Batman nemesis.

In a press conference, De Lima drew parallels between President Duterte and Joker, the archenemy of Batman.

The senator said that like Joker, Duterte has surrounded himself with "questionable characters."

"May reunion ng mga kriminal sa gobyernong ito dahil ang pinaka-kriminal sa kanila ngayon ang Pangulo ng bansa. Parang sa pelikula lang iyan ng Batman kung saan ipinatawag ni Joker lahat ng masasamang-loob sa Gotham City upang maghasik ng kadiliman," she alleged.

"Kumbaga sa pelikula, si Pangulong Duterte po si Joker sa eksenang pinapanood natin sa kasalukuyan -- isang psychotic na mamamatay-tao at pinaka-leader ng lahat ng mga halang ang bituka."

(There is a reunion of criminals in this government because the top criminal sits as the President. It's just like in the Batman movie where Joker summoned the criminals in Gotham City to spread terror. President Duterte is like Joker in the scene unfolding before us -- a psychotic murderer and leader of all those who are evil.)
