Duterte mocks LP anew: Yan yung partidong natunaw!
President Rodrigo Duterte has a new name for the Liberal Party as he suspects its members have been spreading the rumor he plans to extend his term.
In a speech at the launch of Cebu Pacific’s Cagayan de Oro hub Friday (October 20), Duterte said the “yellows” are no different from “yelo” or ice.
“Saan ka makakita dito mag-imbestiga ng extrajudicial killing? Tapos pagpunta mo dito, ibibigay ng mga left, pati ‘yung mga sa partido — partidong natunaw ang tawag ko sa kanila, yelo eh,” he said.
The term “yellows” has been associated with LP members or its allies.
Noting that the uniform of some of Cebu Pacific’s staff is yellow in color, Duterte said of the “yellows:” “Yung dilaw nila, luspad. =Yellowish, parang ‘yung patay na, na-ano na… Patay naman talaga ‘yung yellow.”
The President called his critics people “who cannot accept defeat” since they keep on floating rumors he wants to stay in power beyond 2022.
He said he plans to step down when his term is over or “even earlier.”
