'Don't kill female rebels, only shoot them in the v*gina'- Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte orders troop

A very shocking story about Philippines' president Rodrigo Duterte is currently making the rounds on social media.
A report of several news sites quote the mayor turned president as tasking soldiers to shoot feminists rebels in the vagina because 'vagina is all that makes a woman'. The story is shocking to say the least.
Washington Post wrote:
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte told soldiers last week to shoot female rebels in their genitals, the latest of several violent, misogynistic remarks.
Addressing a group of former communist rebels on Wednesday, Duterte, who served as a mayor before becoming president, appeared to encourage the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to target women in conflict.
“Tell the soldiers. ‘There’s a new order coming from the mayor. We won’t kill you. We will just shoot your vagina,’ ” he said.
“If there is no vagina, it would be useless,” Duterte continued, according to local media reports, appearing to imply that women are useless without their genitals.
The president’s communications office included the comment in the official transcript from the event but replaced the word “vagina” with a dash.
Duterte’s presidency has been defined by violence — and often violently misogynistic language.
Since he came to power on a promise to kill all the drug users and dealers in the country, thousands of Filipinos have been shot dead, prompting the International Criminal Court to open a preliminary examination.
Duterte according to reports has a history of making menacing and misogynistic remarks against women. While campaigning for president in 2016, Duterte reportedly talked about the 1989 prison riot where an Australian missionary was killed and inmates lined up to rape her. He joked about it saying he regretted not being one of the rapists.

Was I mad because of the rape? Yes, that’s one. But, she was so beautiful, the mayor should have been first. What a waste,” he said.
 In May last year, he also jokingly told soldiers in Mindanao that while martial law was imposed, he would protect them from prosecution if they raped three women.
How is this man even a president? Who voted someone like this into power?
