Following after the news published by Reuters that ran the headline “Philippines' Duterte not aware of U.S. support against Islamists in Marawi”, a staunch anti-Duterte critic labelled President Rodrigo Duterte as a “one-man heckling crowd” that only served the public by entertaining them.

Veteran journalist Philip Lustre Jr. pointed out that in the Marawi siege, it seemed that it is Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana who is more in command and in control of the government soldiers.

In Lustre’s point of view, Duterte will not “fight back” citing that the President often backs off when the enemy has heavy weaponry.

Lustre explained that the President is only able to handle the situation when the parties involved have no weaponry and goes as far as claiming that Duterte is a “non-factor” in the current terrorist clash.

It seemed like the only job the President has been doing is entertaining the crowds with his “outrageously, insane statements and antics”, counter fake news and fake claims, and other “related materials”, as Lustre explained.

The journalist placed Duterte among the ranks of Justice Secretary Aguirre, who is current under fire for allegedly citing a fake news bit, and other “characters” who simply seem as if they are in control, but are not.

In his full post on Facebook, Lustre said,

"WHAT'S NEXT? It's interesting to know how the sick old man of the South will deal with the defense establishment, particularly Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and the military top brass, which collectively handle the islamist rebels in Marawi City. My take is that he would just let it pass and swallow his pride. Understanding his psyche, this sick old man does not fight back, when the other party bear arms. He is only good in dealing with people, who have no arms. If ever he fires Lorenzana et. al., it could be surmised the military guns would be trained on him. The reality is that he is not in control of the military situation in Marawi City.  He has been a non-factor. He has been reduced to a one-man heckling crowd, whose job is to entertain the public with his outrageously insane statements and antics. He is reduced to become a mere purveyor of fake news and related materials. He does not work with Lorenzana et. al. He is reduced to work with the likes of Aguirre and other characters, who have chips on their shoulders."
