Atty. Trixie to the critics of President Rodrigo Duterte “Doctorate in Diplomacy sa Russia, iginawad sa tinawag niyong Gusgusin”

The comment of a foreign journalist regarding the physical appearance of President Rodrigo Duterte on the meeting that happened in Moscow with the Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev went viral on the internet.

Czech Journalist Pavel Vondra asked in his Twitter account if President Duterte was drunk when the meeting happened because of the appearance of the clothes that he is wearing.

Vondra told,

“Rodrigo #Duterte showed up a bit unkempt for the meeting with the Russian PM Medvedev in Moscow and the Russian internet is having a blast: “Did he drink all night?”, “Did he just leave the pub?”, “Do Filipinos know what a (state visit) protocol is?”

Meanwhile, the lawyer and pro-government blogger Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles quickly defended the criticism of Vondra towards to the appearance of the President.

Angeles stated that the President’s appearance at that time didn’t affect the meeting that he had with the Russian leader. President Duterte even got an award which is the Doctorate in Diplomacy.

“Yung tinatawag ninyong “unkempt” at kahiyahiya, at mukhang sanggano… May doctorate sa diplomacy. His clothes obviously did not affect his success in getting heads of state to sit and talk serious matters of –ahem– trade and diplomacy. Uulit ulitin ko yung DIPLOMACY.”

Angeles backlash to him,

“Kaya nyo sigurong magkurbata. Pero kaya ninyong magpaimbita kay Putin?”

President Rodrigo Duterte gets an honorary doctorate that was given by the Russian University, Moscow State Institute of International Relations University before he came back from Russia.

He even give some lectures to the students and faculty on the same university.

Meanwhile, many netizens defended the President from his critics and saying that they are proud to have a President like President Duterte in the Philippines. Here are some comments of the netizens:
