DDS is now ‘Domagoso Diehard Supporters,’ says Isko Moreno
MANILA, Philippines — DDS now stands for “Domagoso Diehard Supporters.”
Presidential candidate and Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Saturday made the remark as he noted that many supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte are now supporting his presidential bid.
Duterte supporters have coined the term DDS, to mean Duterte Diehard Supporters.
“Recently, yung mga DDS, nagsusuporta na din sa atin,” Moreno said in a press conference after the event in Intramuros, Manila where Duterte supporters pledged their support.
(Recently, the DDS have started supporting us.)
“Kaya nga nagkakabiruan kami minsan, pag nagke-kwentuhan kami, ang ibig sabihin ng DDS is Domagoso Diehard Supporters,” the mayor joked.
(That’s why we have a running joke during our conversation, that DDS now stands for Domagoso Diehard Supporters.)
Officers and members of the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte National Executive Coordinating Committee have formally given their manifesto of support to Moreno on Saturday.
Duterte, however, has yet to endorse any candidate for president in the upcoming elections.
