Mar Roxas slams Rodrigo Duterte for calling him "bayot"

<p>Mar Roxas to presidential rival Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte: "Digong, hindi ka ba nahihiya sa kababayan natin? Binigyan kita ng facts, datos, katotohanan. Ang iyong masasagot lang ay paninira, name-calling."</p>

Mar Roxas called out Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte for resorting to name-calling in the never-ending word war between the two presidential rivals.

This stemmed from Roxas’s recent statement that Duterte’s promise to eliminate criminality in the country within three to six months’ time is an “impossible” feat and mere “pambobola” on the part of PDP-Laban’s presidential bet.  

As it is, Roxas has been vocal in saying that Duterte has failed to lower the crime incidents in Davao, citing Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency’s (PDEA) report that Davao City is heavily infested with illegal drugs.

“Wala, si Mar, bayot. Hindi niya kaya. Hindi. Kaya ko kasi lalaki ako,” Duterte said.

The PDP-Laban standard bearer further criticized Roxas for his alleged incapacity to deal with ruthless criminals.

Still addressing Roxas, Duterte stated, “Hindi ka lalaki, papaano 'yan? Takot kang pumatay, takot kang mamatay.

“E, subukan mo ako. Maghawak ka ng shabu sa harap ko, pasabugin ko ulo mo.

“You try holding shabu in my presence. Pag di kita binaril sa ulo...

“L**** ka. Ikaw bayot, ako kaya ko.

“Hindi ka marunong pumatay? E, kung patayin ko lahat 'yan isang araw, anong pakialam mo?

“Ginawa ko na yun noon, e, ba, di gagawin ko uli, a.”

Roxas, in turn, criticized Duterte for resorting to name-calling instead of showing clear proof of the latter's accomplishments.

“Alam mo, ito lang masasabi ko. Digong, hindi ka ba nahihiya sa kababayan natin?

“Binigyan kita ng facts, datos, katotohanan.

“Ang iyong masasagot lang ay paninira, name-calling.

“Hanggang diyan na lang ba ang kakayahan mo na makipag-argue o makipag-discuss tungkol sa mahahalagang isyu na siyang bumabalot sa buhay ng ating mga kababayan?

“Yun lang ang masasabi ko diyan.”
