Senator Richard Gordon has broken his silence over the negative comments of President Rodrigo Duterte on his physical appearance.
KAMI learned that the lawmaker just shrugged off the insults of the President.
In a report by the Inquirer (author Pathricia Ann Roxas), Gordon shared he would let the comments of Duterte pass.
“Kasama sa trabaho ‘yan. I respect the President, I’m a senator, he should respect the Senate as a co-equal branch of government… Ang pinaghahabol natin ay pangkabutihang pangkalahatan, bakit tayo mag-aaway dahil sa may personal comments?” Gordon said in an interview with DZBB.
“Ano’ng magiging reaksyon ko? Aawayin ko ang Pangulo? Sinabi ko lang naman ‘yun para sa bayan, masama ba naman magsalita ng ganun?” he continued.
“I’m happy with myself, my wife is happy with me, why should I worry? Why should I worry about what other people say about my body? My wife is taking care of my health, my waistline has gone down,” the lawmaker added.

“I am happy that the President is concerned about my waistline, but he need not worry about that,” he said.
