Sometime in 2009, he invited Mar to try a local delicacy “sinuglaw” in downtown Davao. In 2010, he vigorously helped him in his campaign. This is the true character of Mayor Rody Duterte. He values friendship and loyalty. He was his best friend… until now.
We all know who started it all. The issue about Davao being a myth triggered the word war. I firmly believe that Digong was just testing the waters again. He knew Mar couldn’t handle stress just like in Tacloban.
So, he challenges him, Mar in turn bites the dust and now wants a fistfight, blinded by the fact that he is facing the ultimate fighting warrior in the art of war. Digong knew pretty well he is the frontrunner in the race so he cunningly baits a tailender but a formidable foe. In my own humble opinion, the fight is over. Mar Roxas fell into a trap.
Now, the whole country knows his temperament. Mar cannot handle stress in extreme and dangerous situations. A leader is always exposed to bully and ridicule. How you react will test your calmness and patience in making the right decision.
In the spirit of the Yuletide season, let us put a stop to this bickering and focus more on the achievements of Mayor Duterte, his vision and mission for a better Philippines.
