Only critics think Duterte as a bully - Malacanang

Is President Rodrigo Roa Duterte a bully?

If the group who will answer this question are his critics and detractors. Then the answer will be a definite and a big yes.

Presidential Spokesperson and Presidential Legal adviserSalvador Panelo categorically said that the President is not a bully. He cannot be classified as a bully because bullies inflict injury, pain, and fear against those incapable of fighting back or defenseless, which Duterte does not do.

“Only the critics and detractors classify him as a bully because either they cannot swallow the reality of what he says or they feel alluded to,” Atty. Panelo said.

Salvador Panelo said Duterte merely threatened criminals and the corrupt with punishment “as a retribution for their wrongs.”

“The criminals and the corrupt violate the law with impunity, they feel no fear in their hearts to account for their crimes. They kill, they rob, they plunder the people's money, they couldn't care less if as a consequence of their crimes people suffer or die,” the Presidential Spokesperson said.

“He curses the hypocrites to let them know that they cannot deceive the people with their hypocrisy,” he added.

Panelo said that the mandate given to him by the Filipino people- over 16 million Filipinos accept the President for what he is.

“PRRD's outrage on any unlawful activity is expressed in strong and hyperbolic language for emphasis and effect. His manner of speaking has been factored in - and accepted by the electorate when they overwhelming voted him into presidency,” Atty. Panelo said.
