Duterte calls Magdalo ‘arrogant, cowards’: You had your chance to show your bravery but you just ate your balls
President Rodrigo Duterte has obviously has had enough of the Magdalo group led by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Rep. Gary Alejano who have been giving him hell even before he took over in Malacanang.
In an interview with reporters in Myanmar Sunday, Duterte said sounded exasperated at the Magdalo group who have filed a plunder case against him for hiring ghost employees when he was till Davao City mayor, exposed his undisclosed bank accounts and properties, unmasked his Davao Death Squad links through retired police officer Arthur Lascanas, and moved to impeach him less than a year in office.
“Yung kanyang tapang-tapangan, huwag munang… do not compare me with you. You are all cowards. Alam ninyo nakita ‘yung kagitingan ninyo noong nagmutiny kaya mga walang hiya kayo,” said Duterte.
“You just disturb the public peace, shouting invectives against government. Nagwara-wara kayo ng mga armas doon.
Nag-agaw kayo ng hotel. That is the only one you are capable of doing: to invade the hotel and then thereafter to surrender. Huwag mo nga akong pakitaan ng mga yabang kahit ano. What have you done to the country? Nothing. Except to make noise and that really happened during your mutiny,” he said.
Duterte hinted that former President Noy Aquino was wrong in pardoning Trillanes and his Magdalo ilk instead of paying for the failed mutinies and public disturbances they caused the country.
“Tapos kayo mayabang. Ano bang pinagyayabang ninyo? Na you had your chance to show your bravery. Do not s*** with me,” he said.
Duterte said Magdalo’s call for him to take a harder stance against China’s incursion in the country was ill-advised as any retaliation against China would only lead to slaughter of Filipino troops.
“May panahon na na dapat lumaban kayo, ‘yung itlog ninyo dumating naman diyan sa bunganga ninyo. Tapos sabihin niyan ‘bravery bravery.’ Eh di noon lumaban na sana kayo. Pinandigan ninyo ‘yung sarili ninyo. If I were you, stop boasting about bravery and all of these things. You are incapable of doing it. You’ve had your chance to show to the Filipino,” said Duterte.
“Your bravery was tested and you failed miserably. So do not talk about bravery and all of these things. You are actually a shame. Pinag-aral kayo, ginastuhan ng gobyerno tapos ganoon ang ginawa mo sa bayan,” he added.
