Gideon Lasco: Instead of ‘tapang at malasakit’, Duterte is missing in action

Pinasaringan ng physician at Inquirer columnist na si Gideon Lasco ang kawalan ng presensya ni President Rodrigo Duterte ngayong libu-libong mga Pilipino ang apektado ng pag-ulan dulot ng Habagat.

Ayon kay Lasco, mahalagang maramdaman ng taumbayang biktima ng sakuna ang presensya at kilos ni Duterte dahil siya ang presidente ng buong bansa, at hindi lang ng Davao o Mindanao.

“Last I checked, Duterte is president of the whole Philippines, not just of Davao or Mindanao; not just of soldiers and police officers but of all Filipinos. Whether in Marawi or Marikina, his presence and active engagement are needed in times of disaster,” ani Lasco.

Giit pa ni Lasco, ang pino-project na ‘caring president’ si Duterte ay basag na dahil sa pagkawala nito sa public eye ngayong oras ng sakuna.

“The myth of a caring president is shattered each time a disaster strikes and Duterte is missing in action. Instead of “tapang at malasakit”, what’s increasingly defining him are the following words: “Magtiiis kayo sa hirap at gutom, wala akong pakialam.”
