“Marami akong sundalong namatay, wounded sa police… Nakakainsulto yan,” Duterte added.
The President admitted he’s “very sensitive” with regard to the anti-drug marketing campaign as a result of troopers and policemen get killed going after drug customers and pushers.
“[S]o kung carless magsabi ka na walang nangyari talagang mag-init ang ulo ko,” he stated.

“Sabi ni PNoy, ‘Parang walang nangyari.’ Sige, pumasok ka sa droga, PNoy, ‘pag hindi kita pinutulan ng ulo, buwang ka,” Duterte stated in a speech on the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s anniversary in Quezon City Wednesday (August 2).
“Anong walang nangyari? Gago ka,” he added.
