President Rodrigo Duterte still can’t get over the years he spent being bored to death inside the Batasan session hall during the 11th Congress Duterte, said he only realized that congressmen did not do anything when he became Davao City representative from 1998 to 2001.
“Kasi sa Congress, wala kang gawin, hindi ako sanay. Eh mayor ako, sanay ako maglakad. Sa Congress, kung hindi mo tulikikin ‘yung tainga mo o ‘yung ilong mo, p***** i** ‘pag — ‘pag hindi mo — kalimutan mo may camera diyan,” said Duterte in a speech in Malabon.
“Oo totoo. Minsan mag-ganun kayo [yawns]. P***** i**, sabihin mo para talagang buwaya ang… Iyan ang totoo,” he added.
He never ran again for Congress and settled for vice mayor as a break between the three-straight term limit for local government officials.
