Palace on possible 2020 scandals: No worries
By Prince Golez
Malacañang isn’t worried about the impact of scandals that may beset the Duterte administration this year.
As the Year of the Metal Rat rolls in, feng shui and Chinese astrology consultant Joey Yap said there seems to be an “unwarranted attraction” towards President Rodrigo Duterte that would “likely create some scandals if not carefully managed.”
In an interview over dzIQ on Sunday, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo shrugged this off, saying despite criticisms and exposés, Duterte still enjoys a high approval rating.
“Ano pa bang bagong eksandalo? Di ba tinatapunan siya ng kung anu-anong eskandalo, eh lalong tumataas ang rating niya?” said Panelo.
“Basta si Pangulo nagtatrabaho siya. Gaya ng sabi niya, he could not care less kung matuwa sa akin o hindi (o) bigyan niyo ako ng approval rating na mataas o mababa,” he added.
