Duterte outs Bello for being stingy: Walang medyas, mumurahin ang sapatos!
President Rodrigo Duterte probably made Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III cringe in embarrassment when he detailed on Thursday (December 6) how tight-fisted his former dorm mate was.
In a speech at the Department of Labor and Employment’s 85th anniversary, Duterte described Bello as someone who wasn’t keen on wearing socks.
“Tingnan ninyo ‘yang Labor Secretary ninyo, tingnan mo ‘yung paa, tingnan mo tingnan mo ‘yung paa, walang medyas,” he said, drawing laughter from the audience.
Duterte attributed Bello’s stinginess to his Ilocano roots.
“Nagtitipid, itinatago pa naman. Pati ‘yung shoes niya mumurahin lang ‘yan,” he said.
