Rumpus in Cabinet meeting: Bright boys were ‘screaming, fighting’ while Duterte, Bong Go watched
President Rodrigo Duterte reported a bit of a squabble between his bright boys during a Cabinet meeting which started on Wednesday and ended shortly after midnight Thursday, September 5.
Though he did not reveal who were involved in the confrontation and or the cause of their argument, Duterte said they were “screaming and fighting.”
“In the Cabinet meeting yesterday there was a fight. The presidential assistant (Senator Bong Go) was there. They were screaming at each other while I just let them be. ‘O sige, do what you want to do to vent out your feelings’,” said Duterte in a speech.
“That is really how it is because this is a democracy. But I just let them be,” he added. Duterte found it funny that a guy who barely passed school would be the one to make them shut up.
“While I was watching them fight and scream at each other… I was thinking, ‘Look at all these bright people, the fools. The person who orders them to shut up only had 75 in school’,” he said.
“I was looking at them. They were all summa cum laude, valedictorian. Damn this life.All of them were summa cum laude, valedictorian. They went to Wharton, Harvard. Ako wala. I only studied there in Davao. I transferred schools because I got expelled. From Ateneo, I transferred to Digos in Davao del Sur,” he added.
