Duterte swears again; breaks vow
President Rodrigo Duterte has broken his vow to stop cursing and stay away from his usual profanity-laden speeches.
In a media interview in Davao City last Monday night, Duterte warned policemen not to enter into illegal drugs as he uttered his usual profanity.
“Huwag kayong magkamali pumasok diyan. T*** i** tatapusin ko talaga kayo. Sinabi ko na sa inyo (Never enter into illegal drugs. S** of a b****, I will kill you. I’m telling you),” he said.
During his arrival speech from an official visit to Japan, Duterte said God told him to stop cursing.
“So, I promised God to not to express slang, cuss words and every—so you guys, hear me right always because a promise to God is a promise to the Filipino people,” he said.
On Wednesday, the President cursed again at the United States (US) for its decision to stop the sale of 26,000 assault rifles to the Philippines.
“Tingnan mo yung mga unggoy, yung 26,000 na baril na bibilhin natin sa kanila ayaw na nila ipagbili. T*** **a mo. Maraming de bomba sa amin dito loko loko e, loko-lokong mga Amerikano. Pati ba naman yan,” he said.
(Look at these monkeys, they are stopping the sale of 26,000 assault rifles to us. S** of a b****. There are a lot of airguns. The Americans are fools.)
The President also slammed the US for intervening in our country’s affairs, adding it was them who started the word war.
“P***** i** ninyo e galit ako e. E sila yung nag una e (S*** of b******, I’m fuming mad. They started it first),” he said.
Duterte has been known for his expletive-laced speech, which has become a trademark of his political persona. RAM
