Paula Defensor Knack, a known blogger who supported President Rodrigo Duterte suddenly changed her tune and now criticizing the politician that she cheered for many months.
Amid the newest controversy being faced by the President after he admitted that he ‘touched’ their maid during his teenage years, Defensor-Knack warned Duterte about his vulgarity and profanity.
According to her, the story narrated by President Duterte during the distribution of Certificates of Land Ownership Award in Kidapawan City should not be taken as a joke.
“I lifted the blanket…I tried to touch what was inside the (panties),” the president said. “I was touching. She woke up. So I left the room.”
She also called the actions of Duterte as ‘rude’ and warned her that the enemy of the state might use the controversy to lower the popularity of the administration’s bets in the upcoming 2019 senatorial elections.
“it’s not funny ! ….. abogado ka, ang pagsasamantala sa maid ang mga kinukwento mo lagi ! ground for disbarment AND VIOLATION OF RULES OF CONDUCT IN CIVIL SERVICE!” Defensor said.
She even called the supporters of the President as ‘trolls’.
“Ilang beses na tong kabastusan mo BAKA GANTIHAN MGA KANDIDATO MO SA DARATING NA HALALAN …. SOBRA NA ANG PAGKABASTOS -even the trolls defending you from backlash are helpless now ! PEOPLE ARE ANGRY!” she said.
Aside for Defensor-Knack several women groups also slammed the President for his admission, saying that he doesn’t need to tell those story in public.
“Sa gitna ng kabi-kabilang nararanasan ng mamamayan na kalamidad bago magtapos ang taon ay nagagawa pang magkuwento ng ganito ang Pangulong ito, sa halip na gamitin ang pagkakataon na makatulong sa mga mamamayan. ‘Di kailangang mga tao ang ganitong kuwento,” Rep. France Castro said in a statement.
