Nakoh… pero okay na din.. pinakita nyo ang mga nagawa at nagagawa ni tatay Digong sa loob ng dalawang taon nya.. wag kayo mag alala.. marami pang susunod na maipapasa ang pangulo at magiging maayos ang mahal nting Pilipinas… mabuhay ka Tatay Digong .” Netizen Macoii Delaog said.
“Sa totoo lang ngayon lang ako nag like ng report ng abs cbn sa social media, kadalasan kase twisted, cutted at paninira sa administrasyong Duterte. Kung ganito ba nman ang tema ng pag rereport ninyo eh di hindi kayo mapupulaan. Alam niyo naman ang katotohanan na mabilis ang pagbangon ng Pinas, bakit hindi niyo na lang tanggapin at makiisa sa Admistrasyong Duterte. para rin naman yan sa buong Pinas, lalong lalo na sa mahihirap na kamag anak ninyo na katulad namin.God bless Filipinos, God bless Philippines.” Netizen Rolito Oliverio remarked
