OPPOSITION Sen. Riza Hontiveros labeled President Duterte’s rant calling God “stupid” a distraction to cover up the inadequacies and failures of his administration.
While she said the president’s rant was the biggest offense against the Catholic Church and all Filipinos who professed their faith in Him as their true God and creator, she warned that the nation should not be distracted.
The senator who was in Dagupan June 28, told the local media that the insult may be a mere distraction since it did not involve a national policy.
She said his ranting will soon show a plunge in his approval rating that will indicate that the people are already critical of his administration and a stronger opposition will put the president in check.
While she does not foresee the incident as a reason for the military to launch a coup, she asked the military and police to Institute security reforms.
Hontiveros said she hopes to see the citizenry standing up to protest the wrongdoing of the administration. (Leonardo Micua)
