Although President Duterte did not name the local chief executive, he gave out clues that described the former profession of the said mayor.

“Iyan ang gusto ninyo? Ang training parang call boy,” President Duterte said.

He also reminded everyone of what the unnamed local chief executive did in the past.

“Naghuhubad, nagpi-picture, naka-bikiní tapos 'yung garter tinatanggal niya,” the President said.

Further giving a hint of who it might be, President Digong said that the said mayor wanted to become the President of the Philippines, adding that his only training for the position is to pose without clothes.

“Iyan ang training ng presidente, maghubad at magpa-picture at magsilip,” the President further said.

Reiterating about the mayor’s alleged training as akin to that of a “call boy,” the President then directed the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to take charge of distributing financial aid.

Rodrigo Roa Duterte, also popularly known as Rody, Tatay Digong, or Digong, is a Pinoy politician who became the 16th President of the Philippines, the first Mindanaoan to ever hold the office. He was born on March 28, 1945 and is, so far, the oldest person to become President of the Philippines. He is also the chairman of the PDP-Laban, the dominant political party in the Philippines. Born in Maasin, Leyte, his family moved to Davao when he was still a child. President Duterte attended college at the Lyceum of the Philippines and went on to obtain his law degree from San Beda College, now San Beda University, in 1972. He then went on to become a prosecutor in Davao City and became mayor after being appointed by the late President Corazon C. Aquino. He served in that capacity for more than 22 years.

While President Rodrigo Duterte's term as President may be filled with controversial pronouncements such as the one he made recently about a mayor of a particular LGU in Metro Manila, he still managed to maintain his popularity. This was proven in his last SONA where spectators interrupted his speech with several instances of clapping.

The President is also quick to "let bygones be bygones," as what happened in the case of Olympic Gold Medalist, Hidilyn Diaz. President Duterte openly pledged the amount of P3 million to the Olympic champ. The President and Hidilyn had a short 11-minute Zoom call on Wednesday, a few moments after Hidily arrived in the Philippines. Duterte also praised the achievement of Hidilyn and stated that the country is very proud.
