Nakuha mo na lahat! Duterte jokes Salceda can die anytime
President Rodrigo Duterte believes Albay Rep. Joey Salceda can die anytime since there’s nothing else left for him to accomplish in life.
During his visit to Albay Monday (January 29), Duterte jokingly urged Salceda to join him in riding a chopper at night time to have a view of Mayon Volcano.
“Gusto ko representative, Ilonggo, Bicolano. Si Joey. Damay-damay na tayo,” he said at the situation briefing with local executives and other government officials.
Addressing Salceda, Duterte said: “Tutal nakuha mo na lahat sa buhay, Joey. No more mountains to climb ka, no more challenges to meet.”
“Pareho kami, pareho man kami ni Joey walang asawa. Walang kaming problema,” he added.
Duterte, however, said he’d rather not invite Albay Mayor Kristel Lagman, who was in the audience, to board the chopper.
“Ikaw ma’am, huwag muna kay baka makompormiso tayo,” he told Lagman.
Salceda served as governor of Albay from 2007 to 2016 before returning as a congressman. He was also Presidential Chief of Staff under the Arroyo administration, and a research director for top financial firms before joining politics.
