After several pre-heated political arguments including severe and divisive debates on better ideas of fixing the economy, paradoxes over citizenship, questioning each other’s authenticity or whatever tends to make some politicians end this very one thing humanity have ever had, friendship.
Take these Presidential candidates Mar Roxas and Rodrigo Duterte’s case, who was once friends, now rivals after they went in an enraged word war.
Mar Roxas II went furious after asked to react over Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s statement on questioning his credentials for not being a legitimate graduate from the University Of Pennsylvania Wharton School.
However, Roxas, in a chance interview with reporters on December 14 said, If my Wharton degree is a lie, he can slap me. I won’t avoid it. But if it’s true that I have a Wharton degree, I’ll slap him. There. He finds it so easy to say things that he doesn’t know.
Duterte retaliated hours after hearing the blow, detailing the Secretary of the Interior and Local Government, Mar Roxas’ supposed lackluster performance as interior chief in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).
