Dispatch from Crame No. 48

He blames everybody else except himself. His gross intolerance to dissent and criticisms is undoubtedly among the top qualities of this President.

Duterte’s unabashed contempt to media and other critics is intensifying and his resort to toxic or vitriol language is at a seeming apex. Indeed, as today’s PDI editorial puts it, he has lost the argument. And I go further – he has lost his mind (and for quite a while already).

Why blame the media when there is much of Duterte’s behavior and that of his circle of sycophants that warrants scrutiny and even censure.

We are even seeing now infightings among his privileged men and women, if left unchecked, can only harm the public good.

Go fix first yourself and your own backyard Mr. President, before picking a fight with everybody else.
