Napako na naman!

Magdalo Party-list Rep. Gary Alejano poked fun at President Rodrigo Duterte anew for skirting yet another campaign promise. Duterte went to send off scientists to Benham Rise — now officially called the Philippine Rise — on Tuesday, May 15.

Although jet skis were prepared off the coast of Aurora, the president ditched the plan and instead had his son Sebastian Duterte and his aide Christopher “Bong” Go zoom through the deep sea in his stead.

Duterte had promised to jet ski to Spratlys and plant a flag there to solidify the country’s claim to these disputed islands.

“Sayang! This would have been Dutertes opportunity to make good of his promise even to be done at the country’s eastern seaboard rather than in the West PHL Sea,” Alejano said, dripping with sarcasm.
