The biased Yellow Media (the lap dog of Liberal Party) deliberately misquoted President Rodrigo Duterte's comments on the European Union.
Various news articles say that the president badmouthed the ministers of EU with the "F" word. The alleged F word was Duterte's reaction to the criticisms made by the EU on the Drug War.
A review of the speech by Ampalaya News revealed that Duterte never said the F word. Here is what the president actually said:
"Eto namang EU, mga pakialamero. It is our country...hindi sila pwede manghimasok...pak...pak...ganern!"
Communications Secretary Martin Andanar defended the president saying that he didn't badmouthed the EU ministers.
"Walang sinabi si Presidente na f#%@k. Sabi nya pak ganern. Hinahamon nya lang ang EU maglaro to ease tensions." Andanar said.
Pak Ganern is the game popularized by the comedian Vice Ganda.
Labor secretary Walden Bello, meanwhile, commented that "EU ministers are a bunch of lame ducks if they don't answer the president's pak ganern challenge."
EU are yet to issue their official statement regarding Duterte's challenge.
