Ganyan talaga! Duterte: If people choose a son of a bitch for President, bear it and obey
President Rodrigo Duterte appears to address his critics Saturday (March 10) by saying that Filipinos have no choice but to bear with and obey a President– even though he’s a “son of a bitch.”
In a speech before troops in Zamboanga City, Duterte said elected leaders are given the power to exercise sovereignty by securing the people’s mandate in an election.
“So maski na ang napili mo son of a b**** na Presidente, eh kung ‘yun ang pinili ng tao, wala tayong magawa. We’ll just bear it and obey him if — ‘wag naman ‘yang illegal o unlawful,” he said.
“And you obey, sabi ko, maski sinong elected diyan. It could be the mayor. Ayaw natin ang ugali. But then what can we do?” he added.
Duterte made the remark as he reiterated why the peace talks with the communists collapsed: the Communist Party of the Philippines- National Democratic Front want a coalition government.
He said that while he’s ready to talk peace with the communists, he cannot give them their demand.
