Eh kasi Bicolana! Duterte tells Mindanao mayors to talk to him instead of Robredo

President Rodrigo Duterte told mayors from Mindanao to talk to him instead of Vice President Leni Robredo, who he said cannot understand them.
Duterte quipped in a briefing with the National Risk Reduction and Management Council in Tubod, Lanao del Norte that the mayors are better off talking to a “Mestizo-Maranao” like him than a Bicolano like Robredo.
“Mas mahirap kayo maintindihan ni Robredo kay Bicolano ‘yun,” Duterte said, which was met with laughter.
“May Mestizo-Maranao dito, ayaw ninyo,” he continued.
Duterte and Robredo has a long-standing but subtle gaffe between each other, with the two being on opposite sides of the political fence.
