President Duterte is beloved because he is relatable to Filipinos. He walks the talk and that’s why he has crafted an administration that is in touch with the needs of the country and that is responsive to th concerns of the previously unheard. Best of all, he has not let the position of Chief Executive cloud his own ego.
A recent post by Senator Christopher “Bong” Go shows President Duterte enjoying a humble meal at a carinderia in Davao. This is the same spot, with the same monobloc chairs, that he has been dining at since his days as Mayor.
Netizens quickly responded to the post to express their joy at having a President that is truly down-to earth.
