Now playing “Sorry” originally by Beyoncé (this is an acoustic cover by Kay Dilluh),
dedicated to Du30’s many sorrys
from the Inquirer: “ “President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday apologized to the Jewish community for his remarks that drew parallels between Adolf Hitler’s killing of Jews during the Holocaust and his bloody war on drugs. xxx “There was never an intention on my part to derogate the memory of 6 million Jews murdered by the Germans,” Duterte said.
“ “I apologize profoundly and deeply to the Jewish community,” he added.
inq:“Upon arriving from an official visit to Vietnam, Duterte on Friday said he would be “happy to slaughter” three million drug addicts in the Philippines by himself in the same way that Hitler had murdered millions of Jews before and during the Second World War.
“ “If Germany had Hitler, the Philippines would have …,” Duterte told reporters in Davao City, before pausing and pointing to himself.
“The President’s remarks drew a barrage of condemnation from the United Nations, German and Israeli governments, the Pentagon, and international rights groups. JE/rga”
♣ ♣ ♣ … actually…. lawyers are used to apologizing — every hearing throwing all sorts of arguments in court to win the case (the job of a lawyer worth his/her salt) relentlessly, non-stop, until on the brink of contempt, judge scolds, lawyer apologizes (i apologize your honor)… peremptorily… then starts up again ….
The President should realize he is not just a lawyer and a mayor. he himself admits hindi pa nag-sink in sa kanya. Kelan pa mag-sink in yan, kapag sinusunog na ang effigy mo? Get a good speechwriter who can know you so well that you don’t have to ad lib.
