Comedian actor Michael V. has given tribute to presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte via Instagram as he expresses his thoughts about the Philippine government.
In his post, the comedian-actor Michael V, or Bitoy to his fans and friends, says “Mabuhay ang pangulo! Walang iba... s'ya na nga! Wala ka nang magagawa, bayan na ang nagsalita. Sa bawat bagong araw, mayro'ng bagong simula. 'DAPAT TAMA' isa-puso sa isip at sa salita.” (Long live the president! He knows nothing ... indeed! You can do nothing, the people have spoken. With every new day, are trying new beginning. "BE TRUE" one heart and mind to the word.)
The “Bubble Gang” star also ask the Filipino people to help each other to reach the ‘changes’ they want.
According to him, this is the right time to restrain tongue-wagging and for people to be more humane. “Kahit sino mang pangulo ang iluluklok ng bayan 'Di kakayanin ang bigat kundi natin tutulungan. Ang mabuting pagbabago na kanyang sisimulan Tayo ang magpapatuloy hanggang sa katapusan. Awatin na ang dilang masakit magsalita. Pakawalan ang pusong makatao ang gawa. ” (Whoever is elected as the president, he will not be able to bear the weight [necessary for change] if we don’t help out. For the moral change that he will initiate, we must hold out and see it through until the end. Restrain the biting words. Release your heart for humanitarian work.)
“Manalig kang alam ng Diyos ang mabuti at masama. WALANG DAPAT IKATAKOT KUNG ANG GINAGAWA AY TAMA,” he added. (Believe that God differentiates between good and evil. There’s nothing to fear WHEN YOU DO WHAT IS RIGHT.)
Bitoy, in another Instagram post also reminded the people that change should start from the people - the body - and not the president.
Aside from being one of the Philippines’ most popular comedians today, Michael V is also known for his artworks depicting different events and personalities.
