DUTERTE SHOOTING THREAT TO ROXAS IS A JOKE – PALACE
Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said President Rodrigo Duterte was just kidding around when he said he would shoot the Otso Diretso senatorial candidate Mar Roxas for free.
According to Panelo, the President was not serious when he made the statement and just want to crack a joke even though Duterte announced it twice because everyone is laughing.
Earlier Duterte mentioned, “You are nothing to me. I can even shoot you for free” directing the words to Roxas.
The chief executive commented that in spite of being the grandson of post-World War II President Manuel Roxas it does not mean the former Interior Secretary is good.
Duterte said that Roxas has no loyalty for the reason he was there during former Presidents Gloria Arroyo and Benigno Aquino III’s term. He accused Roxas as a person without principles, who also pretends to be somebody great.
