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.
