Why indeed should Duterte stoop to retired Supreme Court Justice Carpio’s level?

What did you expect morons? Rodrigo Duterte is a duly-elected President. Retired Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio was appointed to the Supreme Court and, as he is now retired, makes him an ordinary citizen. What personality does Carpio have? The President is the highest official of the land. Why should he stoop down to the level of Carpio?

Now, it’s a different story if Carpio doesn’t want to debate with Malacanang Spokesman Harry Roque who the president appointed as delegate in this debate. If I were in Carpio’s camp and he’s eyeing elective office in 2022, I would recommend he accept Roque as the designated representative. Why? He speaks for the President. Carpio, and the Opposition, have got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

But then again, I’m just an ordinary Filipino citizen. But here’s Teddy Casino missing the whole point

Bakit si Roque ang makikipag-debate kay Carpio? Eh hindi naman siya ang naghamon. Maghahamon ka ng away tapos pag tinanggap ang hamon mo alipores mo ang uutusan mo. Ano tawag dun?

Yung mga katulad ni Teddyduwag Casiño di dapat pinapansin kasi di ginagamit centido comon. Pagkakataon na maisa-publiko ang isyu hindi mo pa gagawin lalo na’t nalalapit na ang halalan? Tanga lang ang hindi mag-iisip sa ganitong paraan.
