Atty. Bruce Rivera, an avid President Rodrigo Duterte and former lawyer of Pork Barrel Queen Janet Lim Napoles defended the President and criticized the media on how they prompted Obama to cancel the meeting.
Moreover, he said the media was protective of previous President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III during his administration.
Rivera said the media tried to hide the country’s humiliation during the infamous Quirino Grandstand Hostage Taking and even tried to tell the media to hide all photos of the hostage taking.
And then he criticized the media when they did not do the same when Duterte said that Obama is a “son of a bitch”.
“Issue ba yun sa local media? No. We barely heard of it. It was suppressed. Because PNoy is our President that time. Kahihiyan niya, kahihiyan natin. This was an actual demand by HK to apologize which PNoy said NO on video,” he said.
“Mayor Duterte answered a hypothethical question and not even an actual question that Obama asked. He answered in his usual irreverent self with the unfortunate use of profanities. It was not an actual answer to an actual question. But a hypothetical question which if asked would be improper for a head of state to ask another because that is a purely domestic issue na wala siyang pakialam. And instead of protecting the President, our local media made it such a big deal prompting Obama to cancel meetings,” he added.
