President Rodrigo Duterte explains his two-week absence from the public eye as he addressed the nation on Monday on the government's pandemic response.

Gabi 'yun, ano ba naman. Sa araw makita mo ako nag-golf...sabihin may problema," he said.[Translation: I play golf and ride the motorcycle, because I still can. The problem is you should look into the time I enjoy my hobbies. I do them at night. If I do them during the day, you will also see something wrong with it.]

During Monday's address, the President said he should be allowed to go back to Davao City on a regular basis because it is his"home.""The people must know that I am a resident of Davao City. I never pretended to be a resident of Sampaloc or Sta. Ana," said Duterte, referring to Manila's two districts. The Sampaloc district is where Malacañang, the official residence and workplace of the President, is located.

"If I want to go home there (Davao City) on reasonable basis. I can because that is my home. 'Yung pamasahe ko, hindi naman sa gobyerno (My airfare is not from government funds). I go home just to be there and come back the following day," Duterte added. headtopics.com

Duterte also said he missed the birthday of her daughter Veronica because he was signing agriculture-related papers. He then commented on the country's food supply issues."I was really working on the papers to try to find out if it's not…in accordance with law. It must be lawful and we have to intrude into so many things. But in times of crisis, we are just about really ready to embark on something that can help the people, especially in the food issue," said Duterte.

The President warned critics amid rumors of his failing health."If you want me to die early, you must pray harder," Duterte said. Read more: CNN Philippines »

ADB trims 2021 forecast for PH economy with ‘fragile’ recovery expected

The Asian Development Bank has slashed its economic growth forecast for the Philippines this year from 6.5% to 4.5%, projecting a 'fragile' recovery for the economy in 2021 before it picks up next year as uncertainty enveloping the COVID-19 pandemic continues to dampen consumer and business confidence.

Ikaw dapat nag sisilbi sa mga pilipino. Pera ng tao binabayasd seo. Kaya dapat managot ka kapag tinatanong kung asan ka Is that an admission of his being childish? Our president ladies and gentlemen, is a child. Mentally ill, isip bata ampotah. Your not fit to lead this country. 🖕🖕🖕 isa kang ulul. Yung Presidente nyo, may tantrums at ngaung pandemic talaga? Can someone remind him of his position and his age 🙄🙄🙄

Paano naman po kami Sir na hindi nangangantyaw sa yo? Why even bother or care what he has to say about his actions and behavior? His explanations are always nonsense...unbefitting of a president. Kawawang bayan ko... Sana lahat pwedeng mag 2 weeks off ng ganun ganun lang ano? Inamuka😒

Awww! sinadya? tama bang dapat manadya? tama po bang pag-iisip ng isang presidente yan or should i say nag iisip po ba kayo🤦🏻🤦🏻 What a waste of air time! This guy is the pebble in our shoe! Saan ka nakakita ng Commander in Chief na “ nananadya parang bata ?” 🙄🙄🙄.. konting professionalism naman ... lugmok na ang bansa , nakikipaglaro pa ng taguan pong? Shuta!

Parang bata lang? Parang lutang lang talaga sha at walang alam sa realidad. Huy galaw galaw daming namamatay ng walang kalaban laban. Tapos gaganyan ganyan ka. Wala kang kwenta! So yun nga. Di mo lang bet magpakita sa amin na isang taon nang naghihintay anong plano mo sa pandemyang ito. Bet mo muna mag Me Time ng 2 weeks. Sa mundo ko, AWOL ka na dapat at pinagresign ka na. Pero hindi. Clingy ka pa rin sa power na binigay sa yo ng 16M. DuterteResign

Threat, intimidation, and bullying will not always solve the problems. Stoo chasing the numbers game. More testing will definitely lead to more active cases but at the same time we need to vaccinate more daily, and we need effective vaccines to do that. Ask U.S for help. Ayan na umamin na, nanumbalik na sa pagkabata...

That is not a good answer or reasons to disappear from public, and it's no time to resort to childlike deamesnor. You got a big mess in front of you to deal with, you need to confront the problem head on and solve it with people around. Lockdown is not always the answer. Parang mali ang headline mo: it says addressed the nation on the pandemic response! wala naman plan ano gobyerno eh!

Imagine that. Amidst the crisis he chose to be tamad. Mahiya ka naman. Di ko maintindihan how people still support this kind of a President. Sobrang bastos. Sobrang tamad. The kind of address the confused, afraid & stressed 100million Filipino people can expect during this pandemic from an educated, matured, responsible & hard-working president? We certainly deserve more! A chairman of Lions International organization can do better than him

pag kinakalkal daw sya, lalong ginaganahan na parang bata... whatever that means this time... puedeng bang gawin ninyo lahatvyung ginagawa nyo last week para mad ganahan sya lalo at magkusang magtago na ng magtago... Anong klaseng presidente ang magtatago dahil gusto lang nya habang maraming namamatay sa COVID? HES A SORRY EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING! DutertePalpak DuterteInutil DuterteResign TanginaMoDuterte

Unbelievable. Pls step down right now! LOSER!

lol.. childish Spoken like a true leader? ang mahal na pang gulo... evil leadership at its finest. 'Ganoon ako eh' Oh, buti alam mong incompetent ka. Pero dapat mong tandaan na isa kang PRESIDENTE NG PILIPINAS. Tandaan mo na malaki dapat ang responsibilidad mo sa bansang 'to. Pero ano, wala ka manlang nagawang nakabubuti para sa bansa.

'...para akong bata.' That is Duterte, the childish president. Trip lang nya in short. Paki nya kung mamatay mga tao? Gusto nya sya napapansin palagi. O ayan kaw na. Back to the real issue na po! Malinaw na malinaw na mentally and psychollogically hes incapable (and physically)of fulfilling his duties as president. What he said should be enough reason to fire him.

Seryoso ka Mr. President? Nakuha mo pang magtantrums sa kalagitnaan ng mga isyung need ng agarang aksyon? Bigyan nalang po kitang candy para gawin nyo na trabaho nyo. Tama na tantrums. Juskopo! 😨

tanginang yan Gago ulul bugok isip bata may topak nakamiss yung ganito. president that talks and acts like one. , TanginaMoRoque TanginaMoBongGo PangetMoJamMagno TanginaMoDuterte , This is soo disappointing 😭💔 Gago lang talaga. Very insensitive. 😡 😡 😡 Hindi namin kayo hinahanap dahil namimiss namin kayo. Hinahanap namin kayo para solusyunan ang mga problema ng bayan. Dami na po namatay. Aksyon na po sana. Stop being childish.

DuterteInutil Crazy. Insane. Incompetent 🤦🏻 sinadya mo habang maraming nagdurusa sa pandemya DuterteInutil

Tsssskkkk God, please help us! We are experiencing a surge and hospitals are filling fast with covid19 cases. What a time for the Prez to choose to stay away from public when needed. Tapos sasabihin ni Bong Go ang malasakit ni Duterte sa pilipino abot langit? Putang ina nila..sana mamatay na sila Grabe yung basura sa Malacañang! Kailangan dyan itapon for good sa Davao! Kasama yung mga kampon niya.

Utot mo ano bata ka ba or tumatandang paurong Para kang gago kung ganon Sumasahod pa ang taenang ito? emotionally dysfunctional... 🇵🇭🤴🤡🤡🤡 classic example ng matandang walang pinagkatandaan. now is not the time to cater to your ego when you hold the highest office in the land

Bakit parang naagnas na pagmumukha neto? Cguro kasi buhay pa cnusunog na kaluluwa sa impyerno! Ang sahol ng ugali! Putangina mo din! Second childhood na.. Bigyan ng lobo at candy para wag na magtantrums Wala na lakas ng trip sa gitna ng pandemic DuterteResign Dude forgot he's the fuckin president. pinakabasurang pinuno nang bansa siguro hindi parang bata, wala kami kailangan sayo may posisyon klng kaya kailangan ka ngayon. posisyon lang meron ka na di naman dapat binigay sa eresponsabling katulad mo.

Sana all may ganun-ako-eh leave Tumanda ng paurong Seriously ganyan sya mag-isip Isip 4 yrs old kaya wala na talaga tayong maasahan sa kanya D country's situation is getting worse coz of this kind of childish and entitled good for nothing person I can not call him president he lacks the qualities to be called 1

ito ay patunay na siraulo ang presidente ng Pilipinas duterteSIRAULO 👊🏼💩 Sagot ba yan ng isang pangulo ng bansa na kasalukuyang may pandemya? may paliwanag talaga lagi sya, tangina mo, people are dying, yang ego mo pa talaga ang inuuna mo!

ulol nag iisip bata ka na.. napaka walang kwenta pinag sasabi mo '...parang bata,' seen in that context, simply means, 'immature'. That's who he is. And what a tragedy for the country to have one leader of a nation to behave that way during these troubled times. kumikinangina mo talaga Tama nga si Trillanes...makasarili ang taong to. Walang pakialam mangamatay man mga tao sa paligid nya. Bawal din kritismo sa kanya, puro papuri lang ang tinatanggap

Di ko po magets
