Duterte on Agot Isidro Psychopath Issue: 'I leave her to her constitutional right to free expression. She should enjoy that'
These past few days, actress Agot Isidro has been the talk of town when she posted a controversial statement regarding President Rodrigo Duterte's ties with the United States.
Isidro's remark grabbed the attention of many people- majority are the Duterte supporters. The actress was bombarded with painful comments and replies from various groups that are pro-Duterte.
Even the Palace itself and Duterte's sister herself have already spoke out against her.
Finally, the president broke his silence regarding the negative words of the actress. He responded in a very light tone and refrained from showing rage.
“May nagalit na isang artista sa akin na ano daw ako, psychopath. Well, I leave her to her constitutional right to free expression. She should enjoy that,” the president stated during the oath-taking of government officials at Malacañang.
If you recall, the Facebook post of the actress branded Duterte as a "psychopath" in his strides of challenging the U.S. and the European Union, to withdraw their foreign aid from the Philippines. [source]
