De Lima’s demand to Duterte: ‘Magpakapresidente ka!’
Jailed Senator Leila De Lima came to the rescue of Vice President Leni Robredo after President Rodrigo Duterte’s embarrassing meltdown in his latest public address.
For the abogado and former Justice secretary, Duterte’s latest tongue-lashing was a sign of ad hominem rants due to sheer insecurity over the popular politiko.
“Madaling mambastos kaysa mag-isip. Kaya itong si Duterte, dahil hindi nag-iisip, at sagad-butong mabaho ang bunganga, ay nambabastos na lang,” De Lima said in a belated statement coursed through her staff. “Hindi kami papayag na gawin mo rin kay VP Leni ang ginawa mo sa akin. Dahil wala kang ebidensya, at pikunin ka, para siraan ang inaaway mong babae, inaatake mo na lang ang pagkababae n’ya.”
De Lima went on to call out Duterte’s vile persona, telling him to back off from targeting Robredo.
“Use your office and authority to direct the entire government machinery to respond to the calamity and crisis, not to use it for your theatrics of gutter language. Mahirap ba hilingin na dahil Presidente ka, magpakapresidente ka?!,” she added.
