Pictures don’t lie but propagandists distort the captions to satisfy their goals. No wonder the intelligence budget of President Duterte is tripled: he needs to buy more for his staff.

Dr. Antonio Contreras, a Duterte supporter and a critic at the same time criticize the close adviser of the President for posting an unverified fact in the name of attacking Duterte’s critics.

I am tolerant of trolling. I can just ignore them. After all, being called an idiot and stupid doesn’t make me one.

But posting lies and unverified facts, such as this, and no less than by one of the close advisers of the President, is something I do not tolerate, nor condone.

Dr. Contreras ended his post with the hashtag #NoPlaceForLies for emphasis!
