Whilst most famous for shooting drug dealers, joking about dead nuns, and threatening to ride to the Spratly Islands on Jet Ski to single-handedly defeat the largest standing army in the world, it is easy to forget that President Rodrigo Duterte also is genuine President of the Philippines.
On the evening of the 16th of October 2019 whilst hanging out with some pals at the Malacanang Palace (Presidential House), the president who may, or may not have had a few Tanduay rums decided to take a late-night drive on a Motorcycle.
According to a government spokesman, the President of the Philippines was reaching for his shoe (no comment) when the “mishap” happened.
Thankfully the President only received minor cuts and bruises and will be continuing presidential duties, leading to a sad face emoji for Presidential hopeful Bong Bong Marcos.
The “joy ride” was taken after a particularly tough day at the office talking to Filipino athletes and dealing with a 6.3 magnitude earthquake in Mindanao.
Thankfully though it is now business as usual in Manila.
