“We don’t deserve a SOB in power.”
That was the rebuttal responds of Magdalo party-list Representative Gary Alejano following the statement of President Rodrigo Duterte that since the people choose their leader, they should have to accept him even if he is a ‘son of a bitch.’
During his speech, President Duterte talked about in resuming the peace talk with the CPP-NPA and that’s also the time he tackled about democracy and sovereignty.
“But since we cannot exercise that sovereign power at all times together, we give it to people who are elected by the nation. So maski na ang napili mo son of a bitch na Presidente, eh kung ‘yun ang pinili ng tao, wala tayong magawa,” the president said.
He added, “We’ll just bear it and obey him… ‘Wag naman ‘yang illegal o unlawful.”
For Alejano, a president should be sensitive enough to the sentiments and needs of his people.
“Ang mga hinahalal sa pwesto ay tinatawag na lingkod bayan, sensitibo sa nga hinaing at pangangailangan ng taong bayan,” Alejano said.
Alejano lambasted Duterte for not fulfilling his campaign promises and taking his promises as all joke.
He cited that what Duterte did is a ‘clear case of deception.’
“Si Duterte ay hindi binoto para maging diktador kung hindi dahil sa mga pangako niya noong nakaraang halalan na karamihan ay hindi natutupad hanggang ngayon,” Alejano said.
“In fact, sinabi pa niyang biro lang daw ang kanyang mga sinasabi noong kampanya. It was a clear case of deception,” he added.
Meanwhile, in the comments section, Alejano received lots of criticism from the netizens. They lashed out and mocked Alejano for his stupid comments against the presidents saying he will never win again and he did nothing compared to Duterte.
