Pres. Duterte Goes Viral for Showing Respect to Old Lady in Bacolod City

While Pres. Rodrigo Duterte is often bashed for being ‘anti-women’ because of his jokes and statements, he has proven time and again that he has high regard for women, contrary to what his words might convey at times.

Take for example the time when he went to Bacolod City to officially grace the opening of the 2016 Masskara Festival.

He met the mother of DSWD Sec. Judy M. Taguiwalo – and just like any respectful person, he took her hand in a Filipino gesture called ‘pagmamano’.

Head of the Presidential Management Staff Bong Go also made the same gesture, much to the old lady’s surprise and delight.

  1. Wonderful indeed…He might be the highest ranking official of the land but in his heart, he’s just an ordinary person and a simple one…someone who admit and apologized when he is wrong and stand firm with his decision when he knows he is right…He’s really one of a kind…God bless his heart.

  2. Simple gesture but meaningful and my eyes make me a soft cry. I LOVE THIS MAN! Long live Pres. Duterte! Mabuhay ang Pangulo ng Pilipinas!
