Presidentiable: Mayor Rodrigo “Rudy” Duterte

For a lot of people living outside Davao, Mayor Duterte is considered a human rights violator and a badass. But for his constituents, he is the perfect public servant. He has established peace and order in his city and violators, specially drug traffickers and criminals, fear him. His words may have created a thousand memes but people don’t care, he gets the job done and only those who are corrupt should fear him.

These quotes were taken from videos and articles featuring Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

“What is wrong if I use my freedome of expression and invoke it now? What does it send you, yang dirty finger? What does it connotate? Sige daw?… Rosales asks the DILG to teach me a lesson? Sila ang pumunta dito and I will teach them a lesson of the freedom of expression. Lecture-an ko sila with the finer points of the constitution.”

“Stop or leave. If you can’t or will not, you will not survive. You can either leave vertically or horizontally.”

“I tell you criminals. Don’t come to this city.”

“Just like Marlon Brando, I did it because it was my job. I did it not for my own glory, but because that was what the people expected me to do.”
