This is one reason why Ping supports Duterte: Iba si Digong
President Rodrigo Duterte’s boldness in confronting protesters is one reason Sen. Panfilo Lacson will continue to support him and his programs.
Lacson, in a text message to reporters Tuesday, said Duterte remains popular in surveys because he dares to do what his predecessors would avoid doing.
“That is probably one of the reasons why he remains popular in all the surveys. He dares doing what past presidents did not and would not do under any circumstances,” he said.
He added he will continue to support Duterte and his programs despite Duterte’s “cussing and unstatesmanlike demeanor,” especially if they are for the public good.
Besides, he said that with Duterte being “different,” change is more likely to occur.
After his State of the Nation Address Monday evening, Duterte confronted and “talked” with protesters holding a rally outside the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City.
“In spite of all the cussing and unstatesmanlike demeanor, I will continue to support him and his programs because obviously he is not the ‘more of the same’ type of leader. Having said that, change is more likely to happen during his term because he is different,” Lacson said.
