Gordon said that Duterte betrayed public trust.

“No nation deserves him because nagtiwala ang tao and he betrayed the trust of the people,” Gordon said.

“I mean… minumura ang Santo Papa, minumura ang Diyos, sinasabi sa mga tao, sinasabi sa mga pulis, barilin niyo sa vagina yung mga babae, yung mga NPA,” the veteran lawmaker added.
