PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte is on the popular cartoon show “The Simpsons.”

In the short episode entitled “Mueller Meets Trump”, an imagined encounter takes place between special counsel Robert Mueller and US President Donald Trump.

In the episode of the hit American TV series, a framed photo of Trump and Duterte posing in the traditional ASEAN Summit handshake could be seen hanging on the wall, presumably in one of Trump’s rooms.

Obviously, the caricature was inspired by the awkward handshake between the two leaders last month. Trump then had trouble figuring out where to put his hands. Next to him was Duterte.

In the TV episode, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions takes Mueller to the Trump tower, where the US top leader promptly drops $750 million as a bribe.

Viewers can spot a framed photograph behind the US President in the Thursday episode.
The original combination photo shows Trump looking surprised  as he realizes other leaders, including Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and  Duterte are crossing their arms for the traditional “ASEAN handshake” as he participates in the opening ceremony of the ASEAN Summit in Manila, Philippines  last Nov. 13.
