Buking! Duterte accidentally reveals Medialdea’s illness
President Rodrigo Duterte unknowingly revealed the illness that Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea was suffering from when he spoke before businessmen on August 9.
In his speech at the Philippine Development Forum at the Edsa Shangri-La Hotel, Duterte asked Medialdea: “Okay na ba ‘yung gout mo o ‘yung—?”
Medialdea was among the politikos seated behind the President for the event.
The 52-year-old Executive Secretary has no known illness, though he was reportedly absent for a few days in Malacanang last June.
