Libre mangarap! Pichay taunts Joma over coma rumors vs. Duterte
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN
An official of the House of Representatives has sneered at Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) founder Jose Maria Sison over his health allegations against President Rodrigo Duterte.
House Deputy Speaker Prospero “Butch” Pichay Jr. (Surigao del Sur), said Sison “must have dreamt that night” when he claimed in his official Facebook account that Duterte had slipped into coma during the weekend.
“To him, his dream was like reality,” Pichay poked fun on Sison.
Pichay stressed that Malacañang “doesn’t have to dignify” Sison’s allegations.
On Sunday, Magdalo Partylist Rep. Gary Alejano has called for the disclosure the present health status of the chief executive amid his constant rants on tiredness, death and resignation from office.
Alejano said the health of the President was a matter of public interest since this is not the first time people heard from Duterte that he wants to resign, citing being tired and experiencing illnesses due to old age.
