Below is an excerpt of his interview today.
Notice that he did not deny what retired Senior Police Officer 3 Arturo Lascañas said in the Senate hearing.
Let’s all wait for the Department of Interpretation and Clarification to step in and smooth over the President’s words once again.
UPDATE: @Khaikee suggests the new department be renamed – the Department of Interpretation, Clarification and Knowledge or DICK, for short. What do you think, mga hindi ka-DDS?
Meanwhile, you gotta read this:
Q: Sir, you mentioned the DDS earlier, so sir in your knowledge of it, sino ‘yung creator ng DDS?
PRESIDENT DUTERTE: You should ask Jun Ledesma. He’s a journalist in Davao. He would give you the history of ‘yung… well… Ayaw ko ‘yung to sound apologetic. You just ask him. He’s a kolumnista sa Sun Star Davao. He would give the right person because he was part of it actually.
Q: Sir, sabi ni Lascañas that you were the one who created the DDS?
PRESIDENT DUTERTE: I need not do that. Hindi na kailangan. I did not create an air force, I have an Air Force. I will not create a DDS, may police department ako.
Q: Sir, si Lascañas ang sabi nagbigay daw kayo para sa [ano ‘yun?] pang-dialysis, pang kidney transplant?
PRESIDENT DUTERTE: I don’t know, I don’t know. But we have a Lingap sa Mahirap sa Davao.
