‘Di man lang makaupo! Wes Gatchalian salutes Duterte’s endurance during SONA
Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian is impressed by the endurance of President Rodrigo Duterte during his final State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 26.
In a Facebook post, Gatchalian shared photos of himself presiding over the session at the House of Representatives on July 28.
As presiding officer, Gatchalian needed to be on his feet while the House tackles the business for the day.
The lawmaker said standing for three hours during the SONA is a feat for Duterte.
“I salute the President [thumbs up emoji]. One hour lang ako tumayo ang sakit na ng paa ko [weary face emoji]. What more standing for three hours during SONA [thinking face emoji],” Gatchalian said.
