Saguisag says Duterte should stop being ‘promdi meyor na mahilig sa tsismis’: In Cory’s time, she kept it to herself
Former Senator Rene Saguisag has advised President Rodrigo Duterte to avoid talking about gossip because it demeaned his office
“We all lose if our Prez continues to see himself as a promdi meyor na mahilig sa tsismis. It is so unpresidential and degrades the highest office in the land,” said Saguisag in his Manila Times column.
Saguisag was reacting to Duterte’s tattling on the alleged breakup of his supporter, actress Sharon Cuneta, with her husband, opposition Senator Kiko Pangilinan.
Saguisag said Duterte should learn from his former boss, the late President Cory Aquino, who did not engage in gossip.
“Of course, all sorts of gossip reach a prez. But, in Prez Cory’s time, she essentially kept it to herself or to a trusted few. Sssshhhh,” said Saguisag.
