Senator Dick Gordon won’t take any smack from anybody including President Rodrigo Duterte who called him a “smart ass who walks like a penguin” while making his corpulence a punchline.

“Kailangan marunong ka mag-forgive at forget, ‘di naman ako pwedeng itulak-tulak, ‘di naman ako papayag na binubully lang tayo,” said Gordon in an interview with DZBB radio.

Despite earning Duterte’s ire and public humiliation, Gordon has stood pat on his criticism of the President’s appointment of too many ex-generals in the Cabinet and administration which he blamed on the President’s limited circle having come from the province.

“Wala namang isyu ng bullying dyan di naman ako mapipigilan ng Pangulo kung sabihin nagiingat lang ako para sa ‘yo baka mamaya ‘yung mga inaappoint mo hindi gusto ng tao. Masama ba yun? Dapat tangkilikin nga nya ‘yun na may kaibigan siyang ganun,” said Gordon.

Gordon advised the President to rein in his personal attacks against other people amid the myriad of problems facing the country.

i am not shame. i thank him for taking care of my health sabi nya laki ng tyan mo, sa akin eh kung ako yan di ko yan sasabihin pero okay na yun kilala mo naman sya kung kilala mo sya dont let words hurt you kasi kung masasaktan ka di ka na makakapagpahinga

“Pero ‘wag naman tayo ganyan palagi, hindi naman maganda na Presidente ka, mang-iinsulto ka palagi. Marami tayo problema ngayon, may dengue tayo, may WPS (West Philippine Sea) pa. Hayaan na lang niya si Dick Gordon na malaki ang tiyan, ‘yung asawa ko inaalagaan n’ya yun,” he said.

Gordon said he considered Duterte a friend despite the epic putdowns. “Sino bang ayaw maging kaibigan si presidente lalo nat marami kayong napagdaanan bilang mayor? Okay lang ako doon, ‘di naman ako napipikon doon. Ganyan naman talaga si Presidente, ganyan naman talaga ang demokrasya, may mga naninira. Kailan niyo ba ako nakitang naninira?”
