Villarin says Duterte lying with reason for going home early from Japan


“Unbearable” pain? More like unbearable embarrassment, the politiko said.

Former Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin did not buy Malacañang’s excuse that President Rodrigo Duterte headed home early from his trip to Japan because of muscle pain due to his supposed motorcycle fall.

Villarin stuck to the tale from a viral post on Facebook that claimed that Duterte had to leave the Emperor Naruhito’s enthronement rites red-faced for not getting his way in the seating arrangement for world leaders.

“#unbearablepain daw kaya umuwi from Japan pero di kasi napagbigyan na baguhin ang protocol ng Japanese Enthronement Rites,” Villarin said. “Unbearable na kahihiyan, unbearable taxpayers’ expense down the drain.”

Are you convinced about this claim, too?
