Trillanes Said ‘There’s Something Wrong With Duterte Supporters’
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV couldn’t believe why many Filipinos supported President Rodrigo RoaDuterte and why he was complained with an ethics case for his supposed “offensive” language when President Rodrigo Duterte was more rude than him, every time Duterte curses in public.
“Alam nyo itong lipunan natin ngayon, nakita nga natin yung Presidente kahit yung Santo Papa e minumura. Pinapalakpakan pa nga nila sa SONA (State of the Nation Address), kung ano-anong mura ang ginagawa,” Trillanes said in an interview over DZMM on Tuesday.
“Tapos ako ho bilang elected official, halal ng bayan e hindi ako pwedeng magsalita ng ganun? So may problema sa ating lipunan kung ganyan po ang kalakaran,” he added.
Trillanes, a known critic of Duterte administration, could not deny the fact that he had no support from the Filipinos since the moment he gave false accusations to Duterte. Regarding to his “offensive” language during the August 31 hearing of the Senate blue ribbon committee, which he described as “comité de absuelto” or committee of exoneration, Senator Gordon had a document that might throw Trillanes out of the senate.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, “I think it’s not the first time that Sen. Trillanes disrespected his fellow senator in front of the audience. If this is the case, I think Sen. Gordon is right for making a right move against Trillanes’ “continued and unabated unparliamentary acts” as 14 senators signed their support to Gordon to complain Trillanes.
It all started when Trillanes made disrespectful remark against Senator Ricard Gordon and tried to summon the President’s son and son-in-law — Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and lawyer Manases “Mans” Carpio, respectively to be investigated about the ongoing probe on the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of “shabu” from China.
However, Gordon felt disrespected when Trillanes said something about the senate and Gordon exchanged a heated argument against him and said that Trillanes will be dealt accordingly for “continued and unabated unparliamentary acts, language and conduct and disorderly behavior” during the August 31 hearing of the blue ribbon committee.
“The continuing, schematic and incorrigible abrasive conduct of Senator Trillanes should be dealt with accordingly, maybe a censure is not enough,” Gordon said in the complaint.
Gordon is confident that Trillanes will learn his lesson at this time and the ethics case against Trillanes is strong because it had the support of at least 14 senators. Trillanes, who is in jeopardy of being ousted as a senator, compared himself to president Duterte and said that Duterte is more impolite than him and why he is being punished like this. But Filipino people already know that Trillanes had produced several false allegations to the present administration.
