Palace dismisses Trillanes’ latest tirades vs Duterte as ‘gutter talk’

MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang on Wednesday dismissed as “gutter talk” the latest tirades of former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV against President Rodrigo Duterte, adding that these should just be ignored.

Trillanes criticized Duterte for seemingly being out of sorts during his last public address. He said the public should no longer fall for the President’s lies and gaslighting ploys.


“Isang observation lang, parang bangag e, parang ‘high’ kung magsalita. Parang wala sa hulog e. It’s unfortunate,” the former senator said.


In response, Presidential spokesman Harry Roque said Trillanes should just be ignored.

“Hindi galing sa taong dapat sinasagot, walang kwenta ‘yung tao na pinag-aral ng taumbayan na hindi nirespeto ang opisina ng Presidente. Pwede tayo mag-debate sa isyu pero kung ganyan lang naman, hindi na pinapansin ‘yan,” he said in a Palace briefing.

(This is from a person who should not be answered. The person who was given education by the state but disrespects the office of the President is good-for-nothing. We can debate on the issue but if that’s all there is, that should be ignored.)

“That’s gutter talk and we will not respond to it,” he said.

During his last public address, Duterte took a jab at his critics, particularly detained Sen. Leila de Lima and former Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, whom he called “vagaries of politics.”
