President Rodrigo Duterte thinks Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada is a genius for developing with a timeless quip which sums up the peaks and valleys of political fortunes.
Duterte thinks Estrada’s “weather-weather lang” comment summed up completely the autumn from grace of Senator Leia de Lima.
“Tutal, ang buhay, sabi nga ni Erap… Pero bilib ako sa taong ‘yan. Nakagawa siya ng tamang ‘weather-weather lang’. Tingnan mo ngayon ang tigapa-preso, ngayon naka-preso na,” mentioned Duterte in a speech in Sulu.
Duterte has pushed for the detention of de Lima for alleged drug trafficking when she drug lords to run their companies from contained in the National Bilibid Prison throughout her time period as Justice Secretary from 2010 to 2015.
“Ito si De Lima political prisoner raw siya. Buang ‘yang yawa. Political prisoner? Negosyo kag shabu?” mentioned Duterte.
De Lima claimed the drug lords have been coerced to testify in opposition to her and to place her in jail. She mentioned Duterte needed her silenced for being his most vocal critic.
