Ang alam natin naglalakad na: Abella dripping with sarcasm in parrying questions on Duterte’s health
Have persistent questions on President Rodrigo Duterte’s state of health gotten on his spokesperson’s nerves?
Presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella appeared sarcastic when he responded to a question on Duterte’s health during the regular press briefing in Malacañang.
“Ang alam po natin ay naglalakad na siya,” he said when asked what the Palace knows about Duterte’s well being.
“He’s out there and he has already met with the press, he has already met with a number of people. So let’s go by that, okay? Thank you,” Abella added.
The 72-year-old Duterte returned to his public duties on June 17 by gracing the celebrating of the 50th founding anniversary of Agusan Del Norte and meeting with troops in Butuan City.
Contrary to rumors, Duterte joked he was never in a coma but was just in his “kama” (bed) the entire time he was out of the public eye.
He said Vice President Leni Robredo can also take his place in case he dies.
