Former Senator Rene Saguisag chastised President Rodrigo Duterte for allegedly acting more like a king than a president by virtue of his declaration of Martial Law and suspension of the writ of habeas corpus.
But netizen Elpidio Rubio Jr. questions Saguisag back if it was wrong or was it a crime for Duterte to have declared Martial Law and the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus given that it was his Constitutional right and it was on substantial and justifiable grounds considering the terrorism in Marawi.
Even when Saguisag underlined that the Philippines “elected a leader, not a ruler”, Rubio clarified two matters with him.
Firstly, Saguisag voted for Jejomar Binay. Secondly, Duterte was elected on the premise that he would rule.
The former senator may have lashed at the President, but Rubio calls him cowardly who does not deserve to school Duterte on how to run the Philippines since Saguisag could not even uplift his own province during his time as a senator. Simply, he was not qualified to lecture Duterte.
It was also off that Saguisag compared Davao to Philippines in reference to Duterte’s leadership style, saying that Duterte cannot expect the same results by applying his old styles to the whole country, but Rubio challenged this logic.
In his full post on Facebook, Rubio said,
“TO MR RENE SAGUISAG.
Mr Rene Saguisag I would like to tell you that we voted for a President that can RULE on the last election and you dont belong to us who voted for Duterte because we know that you voted for Binay.
What is wrong when President Duterte will say “I will declare matial law and suspend the writ of habeas corpus”? Is that a crime?
What is the logic Mr Rene Saguisag of comparing DAVAO, the home town of President Duterte to the PHILIPPINES? And why dont you do the same comparison of Makati and the Philippines and said it to Binay? Or did you also compare your home town Pangasinan or what ever it is when you are a senator then? Did you make your home town better when you are once a senator?
And I will tell you that you are just a puppet with no balls when you are once a senator. You dont need to remind president Duterte of what he is doing because he knows better than you on what he wants to do. Your not his adviser and please stop thingking as one.
Likewise please stop telling him about respect that he do not know when you yourself think to be perfect and better than him who was elected President that you only dream of.
Dili pag sigi ug tinikal Mr Rene Saguisag para dili ka ma tokhang! Kay kung ang parihas mo lang nga laos ug talawan ang mamuno ng Pilipinas ay wala kayo maitulong sa bansang Pilipinas.”
