Pres. Rodrigo Duterte talks to the nation at nearly 12 midnight; netizens react

The Malacanang quickly rushed to the defense of President Duterte saying that there’s nothing wrong with airing his public addresses in the middle of the night.

Netizens were again dismayed after President Rodrigo Duterte decided to hold his weekly national address at nearly midnight.

On August 16, Duterte started his talk at past 11:45 PM, which got netizens to call him out for his literal late-night talks.

Kiko Rustia and some Twitter users pointed out that the “nation” that the President was supposed to speak to is already “asleep” by the time he goes on-air.

Others expressed their confusion as to why Duterte always holds his addresses in the middle of the night.

A few stated that it’s “disrespectful” to talk to the nation while supposedly sleeping.

On the lighter note, someone recommended “The Late Night Show with The Turtle” for Duterte’s briefings.

Another joked that the President is too early for the address the following day.

The Malacanang quickly rushed to the defense of President Duterte saying, that there’s nothing wrong with airing his public addresses in the middle of the night.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said, “Wala pong problema maski ma-ere ‘yan ng gabi.”

He added that a replay of the address would be shown in PTV4 if people couldn’t watch the actual broadcast.


“Nire-replay ng PTV-4 ‘yan kinabukasan kaya iyong hindi makakapanood sa gabi ay makakapanood kinabukasan.”
