Duterte calls Trillanes a ‘barking dog’: He filched towels, bedsheets, silverware when he took over Peninsula Hotel.
President Rodrigo Duterte unleashed a volley of insults against his most vocal and aggressive critics since the campaign, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
In a speech before the Filipino community during his arrival at Myanmar Sunday night, Duterte belittled Trillanes’ track record as a mutineer, specifically his failed siege of the Peninsula Hotel 10 years ago. This was his second try to oust then President Macapagal-Arroyo after the 2003 Oakwood Suites mutiny. Arroyo is a key ally of Duterte.
“Look at this idiot. Trillanes is a barking dog. He’s just a… you know this guy, he was the one na nag-mutiniy. Naalaala ninyo ‘yung sa Makati? Nagpa-muti-mutiny, ‘yun palang kaduwagan niya pagdating ng pulis nagsurrender,” said Trillanes.
“Ang ginawa, ninakaw ‘yung lahat ng mga twalya sa peninsula , mga bed sheets tanang kutsara. At hindi naman umabot ng barilan maski isang putok tapos,” said Duterte.
“Nakita naman niyo ang behavior medyo ano, pareho kay De Lima,” said Duterte referring to Senator Leila de Lima who has been detained for drug trafficking.
