Duterte Stops Cussing After God Talked To Him
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday evening said he will stop cussing after allegedly receiving the instructions from God.
“I was looking at the skies as I was coming over here. Everybody was asleep snoring,” Duterte narrated. “A voice said that you know ‘If you don't stop, I will bring this plane down now.'“
The President claimed the voice belongs to God.
“And I said, who is this? Of course, it's God. Oh, OK. So, I promised God not to express slang, cuss words,” he said.
“You guys hear me right always because a promise to God is a promise to the Filipino people,” Duterte added.
Meanwhile, the President admitted that he has not always been foul-mouthed.
He said there is always timing in uttering cuss words, even calling the act “calibrated.”
“There is always a time–a time to be foul-mouthed. I don't like anybody reading my mind. It's all calibrated, it's always timing. Watch out for one thing, that's what I've learned, miscalculation,” he explained.
