OMG! “What’s happening to our country, general?” This was the question of former vice president Emmanuel Pelaez asked a long time ago, while he was being wheeled on a stretcher to a hospital room after an attempt on his life. The question might well be relevant today.
I thought at first the statement of actress Agot Isidro, that President Duterte is a psychopath, was funny. But now I think it’s not. The pronouncements of President Duterte during his China visit were quite disturbing. Even his closest Cabinet secretaries find it hard to (mis)interpret it.
I, personally, am inclined to say President Duterte is paranoid. KSP (kulang sa pansin). Will somebody please humor him? He needs help.
