“Pwede ka namang kalmado lang, magsalita ka nang maayos at malumanay. “
“Wag makikipag-meeting pag kulang sa tulog o hindi relaks ang isip. Pahinga ka din kasi. “
“Tingnan mo yan. Pinairal mo yung init ng ulo mo eh ikaw nga dapat ang tulay ng gobyerno sa mga health workers. Nakalimutan mo rin na hindi mo sila palamon para magtaas ka ng boses at dumuro-duro ka.”
“Hindi lang ikaw ang napapagod sa trabaho mo bilang spokesperson. Human rights lawyer ka pa naman, o! Nakalimutan mo, no?”
“Nakalimutan mo din na mas nasa panganib ang buhay nila kesa sa yo. Kaya wag lang trabaho mo ang isipin mo. Isipin mo din sila.”
Furthermore, the talent manager aired some suggestions to the Palace spokesperson.
“Wala ka bang kaibigang doktor para mahingan mo ng payo o suggestion kung paano tutugunan ang mga concerns ng health workers?”
“Saka Sir Harry, alagaan mo ang health mo, ha? Iwasan mong maospital. Kasi, baka walang umasikaso sa yo sa ospital, dahil lang sa ginawa mong yan sa kanila.”
“Ayaw nating nakakarinig ng, ‘Time of death...’”
Harry Roque is a Filipino lawyer and politician. He is also a former law professor. He now serves as President Rodrigo Duterte's spokesperson.
A leaked video of Sec. Harry Roque, obtained by Inquirer, having an emotional outburst during an IATF meeting has now circulated online. In the video, Roque was raising his voice and was also pointing his finger, apparently, at the doctors during a Zoom meeting who were opposing the plan of the government to implement a granular lockdown.
Earlier, Roque confirmed in a press briefing that President Duterte did say face shields should only be worn in health facilities. Roque said that if that is the decision of the President, then it becomes policy.
