Duterte says Leni can never be president: Puro kasi dasal, tang ina!
President Rodrigo Duterte has declared Vice President Leni Robredo would never be president because she does nothing but pray.
Duterte lumped Robredo with his vocal critics Senators Leila de Lima and Antonio Trillanes IV, and ousted Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno.
Duterte was adamant that he was not out to silence his critics after jailing de Lima, kicking out Sereno, backing losing vice presidential bet Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo, and voiding the amnesty granted to Trillanes.
In an interview upon his arrival from Jordan, Duterte said: “The fact that they are talking to you and being interviewed, is that not enough to tell you that… Sila nga ang nagsasalita diyan, ako tahimik lang eh.”
“Hindi ko kasi sinasagot, alam mo bakit? Kung bigyan mo ng importansya ‘yang sila, feeling great sila. Gaya ni Leni, she can never be a president. Puro dasal. Tang ina,” he said.
Duterte said he considered himself lucky that he did not listen to Robredo’s God.
“Kasi kung pinakinggan lang ako ng Diyos nila, ‘yung Diyos ng Katoliko? Ay putang ina, walang nangyari sa buhay ko. My God, is my God. It is the God that my parents revered to,” he said.
