A LAME DUCK PRESIDENT
There is NO other Commander-in-Chief in this country’s history who has shown utmost humility, sympathy, and solidarity to his brave men and women on the ground ….until now 
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte refused to use an umbrella and was literally “soak and wet” by the sudden heavy downpour of rain during the trooping of the line honors at the 117th Police Service Anniversary held at Camp Crame yesterday, Aug.7, 2018.
He was in his usual fiery and feisty mood during his speech :
TO ALL HIS CRITICS: “Look, I have hit the firewall. I cannot run again. For all intents and purposes, actually, I am a lame duck President. If you are talking about politics, okay. I will not interfere anyway because, after this, I cannot even run for a barangay captain. I have reached my limits.”
TO ALL CORRUPT OFFICIALS: “Yesterday, I fired the council of Nayong Pilipino. All of them. You do not give gambling licenses or franchise for 75 years. You mean to say that, a child is born today, and 75 years later, he’s that old, there will still be gambling in this city? I will not allow it.”
You’re already 73; please stay healthy.
