Speaker Alvarez on Duterte apology: Lahat naman tayo nagkakamali
October 3, Monday, in a press conference at the House of Representatives, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez defended President Rodrigo Duterte on his controversial remarks on Adolf Hitler.
"'Di naman perfect siguro ang bawat tao na lahat ng gagawin mo ay tama. Ngayon, 'pag na-realize mo na 'di tama, at least you have that courage to apologize," he added.
October 2, President Rodrigo Duterte had apologized for his controversial statement,
"I would like to make it [clear] now, here and now, that there was never an intention on my part to derogate the memory of 6 million Jews murdered by the Germans," Duterte said.
"They do not really want you to tinker with the memory. Alam natin 'yan, so I apologize profoundly and deeply to the Jewish community."
"It was never my intention [to offend the Jewish community] but the problem was I was criticized using Hitler, [he was compared] to me. But I was very emphatic – sabi ko, papatayin ko ang 3 million na adik," Duterte added.
