Social media user Ian Lapayo was heading to Cebu on Ceres Bus #8410 when he noticed a foreigner wearing a Duterte baller. Considering that the presidential campaign season had long been over and that many Duterte supporters don’t even wear the baller now, out of curiosity, Lapayo asked the foreigner why he was wearing the baller and how he got it.
“I didn’t see this guy personally (referring to Pres. Duterte) but I knew him through world news and social media, and I find him really great as a president in your country. We, Americans, are hoping to have this kind of leader in our country who is very straight forward and a love to his country,” replied the foreigner.
He added, “You are so lucky to have Duterte as your president. So just take care of him by showing your support and love to him.”
Lapayo was shocked by the foreigner’s reply but smiled back. He didn’t say a word but at the back of his mind, he mused how it was awesome that a foreigner could appreciate the president and everything that he’s doing when his own people could only see his negative aspects.
What do you think of the foreigner’s reply?
