Gary Alejano blames ‘petty’ Duterte for possible ABS-CBN closure


Gary Alejano said the Philippines is sliding back to dictatorship thanks to having a “petty” president in office.

The former Magdalo congressman called out President Rodrigo Duterte for his thin skin that got him lobbying to shut down ABS-CBN, which has been critical of the administration like any other media outlets. Duterte is toying with the network through Solicitor General Jose Calida and through the House led by his loyal follower, Alan Peter Cayetano.

“Yes, petty. Nasaktan ang damdamin ng diktador so dapat ipasara,” Alejano said.
