Duterte reunited the Filipino people after Aquino and the Yellowtards divided and polarised them for decades

This, in a tweet, is how Chief Yellowtard Economist JC Punongbayan describes the government of current Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte…

A despotic, inept, and petty regime that polarized our political landscape, induced the backsliding of our democracy, and compromised our national sovereignty like never before.

Punongbayan forgets, however, that it was Duterte’s predecessor, former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III who, rather than wear the national colours, wore his party’s yellow coloured ribbon on public occasions over the entirety of his term.

In contrast, Duterte even during his campaign in the lead up to his victory in the 2016 elections brought back the tradition of wearing the national colours that was all but lost over the 30 years that the Yellowtards ruled the Philippines’ political narrative.

Yellowtards like Punongbayan need to get their facts straight before issuing such baseless assertions. They fail to realise that it is this bad habit that lost them an entire nation.
