In the midst of the controversy engulfing the Presidential spokesman, a friend of his offers an advice on how to weather the biggest storm of his career.
Paula Defensor Knack, sister of the late Senator Miriam Santiago, took to Facebook offering her friendly advice to Presidential spox Harry Roque: ask for apology from the Duterte bloggers.
Speaking from personal experience, Knack said that the pro-Duterte bloggers have been a big help when she was still connected with the Philippine Embassy in the Hague as a legal counsel.
She also credited the social media bloggers as instrumental in Duterte’s win in the 2016 presidential election, citing Duterte’s landslide win in overseas voting.
I have to be honest…HARRY, MAG-APOLOGIZE KA NA AGAD. Hindi maganda.
Sa totoo lang, ang mga nasa abroad, umasa lang sa mga pro-Duterte bloggers for truthful news noong kampanya, especially as to head counts sa mga rallies ng various candidates. Give naman credit to the pioneer pro-Duterte bloggers where it is due…..todo todo talaga overtime nila to bring timely reports to all PRRD fans worldwide AND they delivered. PRRD won landslide even in overseas voting.
At that time, I wasnt blogging for PRRD. it was only when destabilization came that I put my foot down as I was still Legal Adviser for the PH Embassy at The Hague and no country does such things to their head of state, only the yellows. I had to ask PRRD bloggers to help me assess the situation because that is the duty of the lawyer so she can prepare arguments on all issues and anticipate the arguments of the other side. The PRRD bloggers helped me when I was still with the Embassy and they did so without any reward. One must appreciate them , REALLY and they are highly educated, unlike the bloggers of yellows.
But I will not curse because Spox Harry is a friend and I dont hit friends if they dont hit me, but I am very sad. I hope he APOLOGIZES AND doesnt ignore again the strong presence and vast influence of PRRD bloggers in this administration. They have raised blogging to a higher level and they bought their own equipment which is not cheap. One has to be blind not to see that ! 👊👊👊👠👠
