Caloy Conde, a former journalist, thought he had an ace up his sleeve against the President took to Twitter debunking Duterte’s earlier statement that since college, he already has dollars in his Union Bank account.
“Duterte says his Union Bank account has $ he’s had since college. He graduated 1972. Union Bank founded in 1982. #LiePaMore”
Gabriel Gonzales, a Duterte critic, picked up a fight with Edwin Jamora, a US-based blogger and an accountant, by tagging the latter in his tweet echoing Caloy Conde’s tweet relative to Union Bank.
The feisty and very witty Jamora responded with a terse response that completely destroys the argument of Caloy Conde and company.
Meanwhile on Facebook, Jamora took it further and annihilated Gabriel Gonzales borrowed argument totally!
