Kit Belmonte disses Duterte: ‘Mukhang shih tzu’

Kit Belmonte is done playing mature with President Rodrigo Duterte after his latest public rants, which he thought were unjustified.

The Quezon City congressman likened the President to an angry dog, calling him an obedient pet kept by a foreign master.

“Parang bawal nang punahin si Pangulo kasi lahat ng pumuna binabanatan niya. Sayang sasabihin ko pa naman ang cute niya sa presscon kagabi. Mukhang shih tzu,” the politiko said.

He is referring to Duterte’s defense of his earlier remark demanding the United States to pay up if it wants to keep the Visiting Forces Agreement, which Vice President Leni Robredo saw as extortion.

“Paalala lang, the President has the POWER to craft foreign policy. Every citizen has the RESPONSIBILITY to hold him to account to ensure it reflects the people’s values and their will,” Belmonte said.

“Tungkulin ng bawat Pilipino na tiyakin na prinsipyo, at di pera, ang batayan ng ating pakikipag-ugnayan sa ibang bansa. Ang kontrabida yung nagbebenta sa atin. Hindi yung ipinaglalaban ang dignidad natin.”
