President Rodrigo Duterte on vehemently said he will eventually “destroy” one of his critics. It didn’t seem like a joke but the president was obviously getting annoyed with the person whoever she is. As per his words: “You know I was the whipping (boy) of the NGOs [non-government organizations] and the human rights stalwarts. But you know I have a special something with someone,” Duterte said this in a press conference in Davao City when his drug war was discussed.
“She is a government official. One day soon I will drop her in public and I will have to destroy her in public,” he said repeatedly.
Duterte, did not name her and no clues were even given but it was certain that she is a woman because he said it’s a “her”.
“That’s the riddle there. Just wait. They thought I don’t listen to them,” he said teasingly.
