‘Ala ako bilib d’yan! Duterte on Carpio: Walang matinong sinabi na nakatulong sa Pilipinas
President Rodrigo Duterte does not listen to former Justice Antonio Carpio who has stepped up his attacks on his administration after retirement. “Hindi ako maniwala diyan kay Carpio. Wala mang matino ‘yang sinabi na. Ano ang sinabi nakatulong na sa Pilipinas? ‘ Mga decision nila?
Susmaryosep. Wala ako diyan kay Carpio,” said Duterte in a speech. “Taga-Davao ‘yan pero…Carpio is so enamored with China,” he added. Carpio has criticized the Duterte administration for bending its back over to pamper China despite its incursions in the country’s territory and tolerating security risks from China’s stake in the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines.
Duterte then made fun of Carpio’s Chinese looks in sharp contrast to his fierce anti-Chinese stand.
“Ang disgrasya pa, ang mukha niya Intsik talaga. Look at Carpio. Ako, ako may dugo akong Intsik, lolo ko. Pero tingan mo konti lang. Carpio tingnan mo. Binabandera niya pagka-Pilipino niya. Tingnan mo mukha niya. Parang kapatid sila ni Mao Tse-tung,” Duterte said.
PRESIDENT DUTERTE: May mga security issues that can be handled by the military. [Cannot?] be a problem. Ako, ‘yung tower? Pasabugin ko lang ‘yun. Putulin ko ‘yung kable, tapos na.
