PUPPET

PRESIDENT Rody Duterte is in control and will not take orders from anybody especially from a lackey of a foreign tycoon.

That was the clear message he sent when he rebuked (read: insulted) PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan who arrogantly stated that the government should not stand in the way of businesses especially concerning their company’s upcoming projects and programs.
