Duterte says he’s not religious but he’s friends with God: I’m rude but you voted for me, so live with it
President Rodrigo Duterte address his critics anew who apparently couldn’t stand his boorish behavior more than three years into his term.
“I’m not a religious kind of person, but I am friends with God. You know, they say that I have a bad mouth, that I am rude, that I am quarreling with the priests. It’s not that. I was just angry,” said Duterte in a speech.
“Now if you corner me on the street, p**** i** I will really curse you. You do not do that to me. I am rude and I have a bad mouth,” he added.
Duterte reiterated that the public knew who he was when he ran in 2016 and that the results showed that a lot of Filipinos liked him – 16,601,997 total votes or 6.6 million more than his closest rival.
“I had a bad mouth when I was still mayor. So when I became President, I had a bad mouth too. I am rude. And that’s none of your business. You voted me. So that’s it,” he said.
