“Sir (Narvacan Mayor Chavit Singson) you know you have my deepest respect pero ito si Bong (Senator Bong Go) sige siya, pinapanood niya ‘yung gimmick mo doon sa [viral video],” President Rodrigo Duterte said at the inauguration ceremony of Candon City Bypass Road.
The viral video shows sleepy Chavit who almost leaned on the shoulder of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas where they watched the Manny Pacquiao-Keith Thurman boxing match.
“Sabi niya (Senator Go), tignan mo talaga si Chavit. Sabi ko, huwag mong (seryosohin) baka hindi totoo ‘yan. Totoong patulog-tulog siya. Wala akong, we do not have that kind of opportunity. Ikaw ‘yun sir ang palagi, so we can only say good luck. And may the next mission be accomplished,” the President said eliciting laughter from the crowd.
