May bagong palusot si Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella sa rape joke ni President Rodrigo Duterte patungkol naman sa Miss Universe.
Ayon kay Abella, hindi naman biro ang sinabi noon ni Duterte.
It was not a joke. It was a very serious statement that’s actually saying, ‘Bilib naman ako, gagawin mo pa ‘yan, alam mo naman ikamamatay mo ‘yan,'” ayon kay Abella.
Dagdag pa ni Abella, naiintindihan umano ng mayorya ng mga Pilipino ang naging pahayag ni Duterte.
“The majority of the people, especially the masses, really get him,” ani Abella.
Tanggap na umano ng masa ang asal ng kanyang boss.
“There are those who tend to zero in on certain details, but as far as the public is concerned, and they are the ones who really approve of him, they find the President as somebody who understands them, who has their common interests, their common good, at heart,” dagdag pa ni Abella.
