“You are so lucky to have Duterte as your president; we, Americans, are hoping to have this kind of leader”

A photo of an American tourist caught wearing a Duterte baller has been a generating some noise online . This is the story that catapults it to online fame.

Facebook user Ian Lapayo shares his heartwarming encounter with an American tourist inside the Ceres bus bound for Cebu.

Mr. Lapayo said that he noticed that the tourist is wearing the “iconic” Duterte baller that caught his attention. He struck a conversation with the tourist out of curiosity.

“I asked him why he’s wearing a Duterte baller and where did he got the baller,” Mr. Lapayo wrote.

The American tourist’s hit on the mark reply did not prepare him!

I didn’t see this guy personally (referring to Pres. Duterte) but I knew him through world news and social media, and I find him really great as a president in your country. We, Americans, are hoping to have this kind of leader in our country who is very straight forward and a love to his country. You are so lucky to have Duterte as your president. So just take care of him by showing your support and love to him.

Yesterday, as we were riding a Ceres Bus #8410 bound for Cebu, City, I noticed this gentleman is wearing a “DUTERTE” baller. Out of my curiousity, I asked him why he’s wearing that and where did he got that baller (kapal muks! hahaha). He just replied, “I didn’t see this guy personally (referring to Pres. Duterte) but I knew him through world news and social media, and I find him really great as a president in your country. We, Americans, are hoping to have this kind of leader in our country who is very straight forward and a love to his country. You are so lucky to have Duterte as your president. So just take care of him by showing your support and love to him.”
I just smiled at him and at the back of my mind, “WOW! Buti pa ibang lahi, na appreciate nila presidente natin, ang iba jan kung maka bash, WAGAS!”

The post was published on Mr. Lapayo’s personal Facebook account on October 13, 2016 and has since generated more than 4,000 shares on Facebook and growing.
