Bong Go defends Duterte in Israel: Jesus is on our side always


President Duterte may have called God stupid but his assistant believes that Jesus will always be on their side.

The President’s aide Bong Go said he would pray for the President’s critics while visiting Israel, as he rejected rumors Duterte was set to undergo a medical checkup.

“There is no truth to rumors spreading about PRRDs ‘medical treatment’ here in Israel. I assure you he is in tip-top condition. He can finish his term up to 2022 and live beyond,” Go wrote on Facebook.

“For those who speak or think ill of him, I will just pray for you here in Jerusalem. Jesus is on our side always,” he said.

Go also disputed the claim of Israeli journalist Neri Zilber for tweeting that “almost everyone believed” that Duterte’s visit to Israel was a “cover for medical treatment.”

“Sa tingin ko pinsan siya ni Alejano kasi pareho sila ng ulo,” he said, comparing Zilber to Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano, who also speculated Duterte’s trip abroad was for health reasons.
