More than a yr after the marketing campaign, President Rodrigo Duterte remains to be bristling with rage each time he remembers how former Makati Business Club Chairman Ramon del Rosario Jr. referred to as him out for not elaborating on his enterprise plans in a enterprise discussion board throughout the marketing campaign.
In a speech on the Ayala buying and selling flooring of the Philippine Stock Exchange, Duterte bared that he has not gotten over his first brush with Ayala-based businessmen he referred to as “illustrious idiots”
Duterte felt it was unfair for the host to criticize him for talking largely on his areas of experience which was combating unlawful medication, crime and corruption when he was candid about his lack of curiosity or data financial points when the MBC organizers invited him.
“Pagkatapos ng speech ko I was reading the newspapers the following day at sabi ‘nong Presidente nung club na ‘yun, I was just talking about business on the surface nothing about…Alam mo ‘pag niyaya mo ako, do not comment. Ikaw dito Presidente ka ngayon, tapos tatanungin ka bukas, ‘O how did Duterte fare yesterday? Eh walang sinabi kung hindi ‘yung krimen. Wala namang sinabing sa business,” mentioned Duterte.
“Eh sabi ko, putang ina mo sinabi ko na sa’yo na hindi ako marunong. Ngayon, dadaldal diyan ka nang daldal diyan. Putang ina, masampal kita. I told you so,” he added.
Shortly after Duterte’s speech, an underwhelmed del Rosario instructed media: “Because this is a business meeting, I would’ve wanted to hear more about his economic policies and programs and even his economic team.”
Duterte mentioned the businessmen didn’t recognize his honesty, that he wouldn’t faux to be an professional on a area which held little or no curiosity for him.
“I was very honest. I am really very honest. Why? Because I really find no objection in life to tell a lie. ‘Yan ang sakit ko. Hindi ako mag-sinungaling. Bakit ako mag-sinungaling?” he mentioned.
