OK ka ba diyan? Parody account pokes fun at Duterte’s wobbly walk at PMA grad rites
A parody account of Malacañang has poked fun at the weird way that President Rodrigo Duterte walked at the graduation rites of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Mabalasik Class of 2019.
The 26-video clip posted Sunday by Malacañang Events and Catering Services (@MalacananEvents) showed Duterte struggling as he walked slowly down a flight of stairs at the PMA campus in Fort Del Pilar.
Duterte appeared close to stumbling as he reached the foot of the stairs, prompting the officials close to him to extend a helping hand.
The brains behind @MalacananEvents inserted a comedic background music into the video to make it funny.
The post’s caption read: “Long Leave Mr. President!”
The state of Duterte’s health has been the subject of speculation since he was rarely seen in public this month.
During the PMA’s commencement rites, the President broke tradition by sitting out the distribution of diplomas to the graduating cadets. He delegated the task instead to Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana.
