Trillanes says Duterte ‘napakatamad na, wala pang malasakit’


“I’m not buying this info that [President Rodrigo Duterte] is sick. He’s been doing that for the past 5 yrs,” former senator Antonio Trillanes said in a Facebook post.

“Mawawala kunyare then they’d float their own rumor. Tapos lalabas like a conquering hero and burn all those who went for the ride. He’s a narcissist, remember? He craves for the attention,” the former senator said.

“Instead of getting sucked in to their script, let’s just demand for him to work at this time of severe national crisis. Napakatamad na, wala pang malasakit,” Trillanes added.

Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, in a statement released April 11, reassured the public that President Duterte is doing well.

Go added that the President continues to perform his duties and remains on top of the situation in leading the country to recovery amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.


“Matagal na pong timon ng ating bansa si Pangulong Duterte. Iisa lang ang Pangulo ng ating bansa. Dapat protektahan natin ang seguridad ng ating mahal na Pangulo,” said Go.

“Sa mga kapwa kong Pilipino na naghahanap kay Pangulong Duterte at tunay na nagmamalasakit sa kanyang sitwasyon, huwag kayong mag-alala dahil maayos ang kalagayan ni Tatay Digong. Araw-araw niyang ginagampanan ang kanyang tungkulin bilang Pangulo at ama ng bansa,” he continued.

Go also warned those who are spreading malicious claims about the President’s health.

“Gusto niyo ba siyang mapahamak? Alam niyo, plastik ang tawag diyan. Sa mga taong nagmamadali, huwag kayong impatient. Mag-antay kayo sa tamang panahon. Unahin muna natin na malampasan ang pandemyang ito,” Go added. “Sana, kung naghahanap ang iilan diyan sa Pangulo, ito ay dahil tunay kayong nag-aalala sa kalagayan ng Ama ng ating bansa … Ipanalangin ninyo dapat ang kanyang maayos na kalagayan, hindi ang kanyang kapahamakan.”
