UNITED NATIONS High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein says Rodrigo Duterte – who recently called a UN special rapporteur “malnourished”, and referred to an International Criminal Court prosecutor as “that black woman” – needs to “submit himself to some sort of psychiatric evaluation.” Reacting to the UN rights chief’s statement, Alan Peter Cayetano says, “The world actually needs more Dutertes.” Actually, the world needs more psychiatrists.
Duterte’s mouthpiece, Harry Roque, said the UN rights chief’s language was an insult to Filipinos. As opposed to Duterte’s language which is the epitome of class, morals and values and a source of great pride for Filipinos.
Harry Roque added, “Such language directed against a democratically elected head of a UN member country is uncalled for and is an affront to the sovereignty of the Republic of the Philippines.” A strong reaction from the spokesman of the Philippine president who has surrendered the republic’s sovereignty to China.
Rodrigo Duterte’s spokesman Harry Roque, who is reportedly running for senator next year, says Mocha Uson is “a role model for women.” When asked about the things he liked most about Uson, Roque replied, “her loyalty, her charm, and her 5 million followers on Facebook.”
On International Women’s Day, palace spokesman Harry Roque praised attack dog Mocha Uson and called her “a role model for women.” Many Filipinas here and abroad were offended by the statement forcing Harry Roque to clarify he never said ‘role model’ but ‘troll model.’
Mar Roxas placed second in the 2016 presidential elections and Grace Poe came in third. Manny Pacquiao described this as ‘nakakapagtaka.’ To which, Roxas replied, “Parang ‘yong pagboto lang sa ‘yo ng tao.”
The Dep’t. of Interior and Local Government will recommend the declaration of a state of calamity in Boracay due to pollution. There’s just too much garbage. Talking about garbage, when will a state of calamity be declared in Malacañang?
The charges against alleged big-time drug lord and Duterte’s kumpare, Peter Lim and other high-profile drug personalities have been dismissed by Vitaliano Aguirre’s office. Here are some of the reactions we gathered:
Harry Roque: “Peter Lim is a role model for businessmen.”
Alan Peter Cayetano: “The world actually needs more Peter Lims.”
Kris Aquino: “May I invite these suspected drug lords to have coffee (i endorse Nespresso) or we can have a San Mig (i’ve endorsed them too & i’m cool w/ the lemon flavored) if that’s their preference. You guys have my word: hindi ako ‘magda-drama’ pag nagkaharap-harap na tayo.”
Mocha Uson: “SA INYONG PALAGAY, PRODUKTO LAMANG BA NG FAKE NEWS ANG AKUSASYONG DRUG LORD SI PETER LIM?”
Duterte fanatics: Sinusunod lang ni Tatay Digong ang sinasabi ng ebidensya at ng batas. Mabuhay ka Tatay Digong! Watching from Dubai. Watching from Taiwan. Watching from Al Khobar. Watching from London. Watching from Ouagadougou. Watching from
troll center Davao.
Manny Pacquiao: “Si Lord nga, nakapagpatawad, DOJ pa kaya?”
Noli De Castro:
“Leadership by deception isn’t leadership. It’s fraud.”
“Maski na ang napili mo son of a bitch na presidente, eh kung ‘yun ang pinili ng tao, wala tayong magawa.”
