Duterte admits he can’t talk, act like a President: Parang mayor pa rin ako

President Rodrigo Duterte has a hard time shaking off the mannerisms he learned as mayor of Davao City– and he admits he may not ever change.

Duterte on Friday (January 12) acknowledged he can be rude even though he’s supposed to act more refined now that he’s the President.

“Ang problema ko is dala-dala ko yung mindset ko, yung asta ko as mayor, dinala ko sa presidency,” he said during the 60th birthday celebration of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez in Tagum City.

“And I realized that being President, hindi ka na makasabi ng p***** i**, hindi ka na maka — too

late to change eh. It’s in the persona embedded deeply in the psychic mind. Wala na akong magawa niyan,” he added.

Duterte said he’s more comfortable being addressed as “mayor” instead of “President” since he speaks like a local executive anyway.

“Kaya ugali ko talaga, pang-mayor lang. Nung sinabi nila na hindi ako statesman, hindi naman ako nag-aral pang-statesman. Ang sabi, ‘bastos,’ eh talagang bastos ang bunganga ko, lalo na pag asarin mo ako,” he said.
