In a report by the GMA News Online (author Virgil Lopez), the President urged the firemen to help the police and military in enforcing the law.
“You have to help in the law and order. You are not limited to just fire. That’s a bullshit idea. You have to go around and help the policeman and the military. You must help kill the enemy kasi ang enemy ninyo papatayin talaga kayo,” the President said.
“So sabi ko sa inyo, paisyuhan ko man kayo ng baril, kayong mga bumbero. Pagtapos iyang tubig tao naman hanapin nyo,” Duterte stated.
“'Patayin ninyo ‘yung tubig, tapos tao,” he added.
In a previous report by KAMI, President Duterte commented over the physical appearance of Sen. Richard Gordon. However, the lawmaker just shrugged off the President’s comments.
