Everyone knows Digong Duterte has a foul mouth. He himself admitted this. And he needs detergent to cleanse it to sound like presidential. The problem is what kind of detergent he is going to use. Oral B wouldn’t do it, neither Listerine. So what now?
If every time Duterte opens his mouth and he is spewing sewage, by the time the election campaign finished, the Philippines would have made another sewage creek, where squatters could build their shanties on. That would have strained the government again in relocating these squatters.
He said, cursing and spewing sewage has become a part of his youth regimen when he was growing up in a squatter area. His foul language like his skin is akin to him. The reason why sewage utterances become his signature.
No detergent is a deterrent to Duterte’s thoughts. His thought process has three aspects: Hyperbolic. Game, but unsure. Buck-pass as a safe valve.
Duterte’s outlandish claims; he killed 1,700 people and toasted some, bragged his immorality in defense of his concubine, plans to remove Calculus, Trigonometry and Algebra from the school curriculum, are the kinds of Duterte’s hyperbolic speeches heavy laden with controversial showbiz effect. Duterte taunted, challenged, and ridiculed his opponent’s camps to enrage them into war. When he said, he would help and support Jojo Binay when he gets disqualified, it stoked the tinderbox sentiments of those who hated Binay to become president. It could be Duterte’s threat for those people working behind his disqualification. Like, he’s saying: All right, disqualify me, and you’ll have a corrupt one as your president.
The intent of his hyperbolic utterance is to sustain attention to get people glued on him either negatively, or positively. That’s a name recall awareness. It can get the votes. See what happens to Alma Moreno, after her awkward interview with Karen Davila. She landed at No 20 on the latest Senate slate survey.
Duterte is always projecting himself as one ready and game to do battle for presidency. Yet, by the same token, he is unsure if he likes it or not. Whenever he speaks in a formal forum, a common thread is apparent: Spare me, I don’t want any more accolade in my life to covet on the presidency. I am 70 years old. The presidency passed my time. My family doesn’t want me to run. Blah… blah. People get mixed messages, and confused. Is this guy serious?
As any other aspirants who pitched bullshits, Duterte in his macho bravado style, said along this line: He will close congress and form a revolutionary government, if he didn’t get cooperation from the said institution. In another forum, he said, if after three years change is not felt, he will quit his Presidency. Addressing the business tycoons, he said, they should stop the oppressive onerous contractualization. Coming from a guy who is fond of hyperbolic speech, is he serious? Are his utterances believable?
Here is the kicker. At the forefront, Duterte admitted killing people. He is immoral, having four concubines. He spewed sewage every time he opens his mouth. He cursed the Pope. He insulted the Catholic Church. If the voter gamble to elect him in office and didn’t deliver, he would say: Whose fault is it? I told you what and who I am.
Duterte would ultimately blame the people who voted for him. He buck-pass and that’s his safety valve.
No detergent is a deterrent to Duterte. So, brace yourself, people.
