So where’s the ‘heart-wrenching’ part in Duterte’s Sona?
Every day before President Duterte delivered his first State on the Nation Address (Sona), Communications Secretary Martin Andanar promised which it would fire up the patriot in every single Filipino. He even claimed that the speech, which was supposedly provided by the President himself, produced him cry. But right after the virtually two-hour speech in the President on Monday, many people asked: where was the heart-wrenching element inside the speech?
For the Communications Secretary, he said that it was the firebrand President’s ad libs as part of his speech that created it far more private and touching.
“I consider ad lib really made it more individual. The President himself, she has this magic touch using the masses,” Andanar told reporters adopting the President’s speech. The Palace official said individuals who are receptive to Duterte’s virtually two-hour speech is going to be those from the marginalized and poor Filipinos.
“Siguro kung hindi niyo na-appreciate sa loob ng halls of Congress, I am certain in the event you go and walk inside the sidestreets and inside the streets where our class C, D, E reside, they appreciate what the President did kasi pinaintindi ng Presidente kung ano ang kanyang ibig sabihin doon sa State in the Nation [Address],” Andanar mentioned.
Final Sunday, it absolutely was Andanar who claimed that Duterte’s speech was touching. “When I read the speech, ayaw ko pong mag-exaggerate pero the very first time I study it, it made me cry. Ganoon po kaganda, ganoon po ka makabagbag-damdamin iyong speech ng Pangulo natin,” Andanar told the media in Davao City.
Andanar mentioned that this President’s Sona was supposed to final only 38 minutes but for those chief executive who is notorious for ditching his prepared speeches, it ended up being lasting one particular hour and 32 minutes.
