Duterte scoffs at Gordon’s court experience: Nag-trial ka ba Dick?
After ridiculing him for his fatness and loquaciousness, President Rodrigo Duterte is now dissing Senator Dick Gordon for his trial experience.
“You know, Senator, you are a lawyer — you pretend to be… Wala man akong nakita nag-trial ka,” said Duterte ina briefing.
Gordon graduated from the University of the Philippine School of Law in 1975. He served as an associate of ACCRA Law Office from 1975 to 1979.
Duterte claimed Gordon sent most of his time in Subic and that he stalked then President Fidel V. Ramos just to be the first head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority in 1992.
“Hindi ka na pinansin ni Ramos, habol ka pa nang habol. Ka wala mo namang… That’s the kind of person you are,” said Duterte.
In a previous speech, Duterte revealed: “Noong sa Subic Bay siya (Gordon) naalala niyo? Ayaw niyang bumitaw. Hinabol-habol pa niya si President Ramos. Hindi na nahiya. Talagang hinabol-habol niya because of the lucrative business of Gordon diyan sa Subic. Iyan talaga ang totoo.”
“Nagwalang-hiya…mawalang-galang na, parang ganoon. Hinabol niya si presidente and it was documented by the ABS-CBN, lahat. Na saan siya humabol, naghintay ng kanto kasama ang asawa niya,” he added.
Duterte vowed to make it his personal crusade to block Gordon from winning another term in the Senate in the 2022 elections. “I would just like also to remind Senator Gordon na I will campaign against you for being unfit to be a senator of this Republic,” said Duterte.
