Malacañang contests the the definition of the word “Duterte” in the Urban Dictionary, saying they are the exact opposite of what the President is.

According to the online dictionary, “Duterte” stands for “traitor,” “deceptive,” and “betray” among others.

“If that dictionary definition of ‘Duterte’ refers to the President, then we have our own definition of the man, which is exactly the opposite of what that dictionary gives,” said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo Tuesday.

To them, Panelo said “Duterte” means “honest, incorruptible, politically-willed, courageous, selfless, honest, (and) transparent.”

This was the first time he had even heard of Urban Dictionary, the official added.

“Baka naman false news yun. Parang ngayon ko lang narinig yung Urban Dictionary. Ang alam ko yung mga kilala Webster… Baka mga anti-Duterte ang gumawa nun,” he said.
