Anakbayan Party-List Rep. Tom Villarin was the precise reverse of impressed following President Rodrigo Duterte’s second State of the Nation Address (SONA) Monday, July 24.
According to Villarin, the Chief Executive mainly prevented the controversial subjects and relied on his normal bag of methods to entertain his viewers.
“It’s classic Duterte showtime! Rambling, shouting, warning, and bullying his ‘enemies.’ He knows what issues click, what emojis to use. To be populist than being right. Again no mention of ENDO, coconut farmers trust fund, other social legislation,” the opposition congressman mentioned.
“Frustrating!” added Villarin as he summed up his emotions.
Duterte’s SONA final two hours, which is a few 27 minutes longer than his first SONA final yr. Like final yr’s speech, Monday’s SONA was filled with humorous anecdotes, one-liners, and expletives.
