Atty. Rivera Revealed Why the Media Sensationalized Mayor Duterte's "Bad Joke"


Mayor Rodrigo Duterte came under fire from the national media and his presidential opponent for his controversial statement during a campaign rally in Quezon City. In order to defend Mayor Duterte, one of his staunch supporter Atty. Bruce Rivera revealed the reasons why the national media the other presidential candidate sensationalized the issue.



Atty. Bruce Rivera's open letter to his followers titled "A Bad Joke" pertaining to the haters of Presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

According to the San Beda lawyer, everything that comes out of Mayor Duterte's mouth is dissected by his detractors and made a big deal as a desperate act to discredit him.

Despite the blunder of Mayor Duterte which was already used by his opponents as the main reason why he should not be elected as president, thousands of supporters of Mayor Duterte were still unfazed with their support on the Davao City mayor as evidenced by the tens of thousands of people attending his rally in Bacolod City. 

Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Bruce Rivera:

A BAD JOKE
When you have a hard time destroying a person's reputation, you tend to grab at straws and nitpick. In DU30's case, even jokes become as source of intrigue, descriptive dialect becomes an attack on the LGBT and a popular expression is taken as an attack on the pope. Everything that comes out of his mouth is dissected by his detractors and made a big deal as a desperate act to discredit him. 

Sorry, a bad joke is a bad joke. And Mayor, with his offbeat sense of humor, made a blunder by thinking a joke about rape is funny. But that is Duterte. He talks to you like you are a friend or a fellow thug. He curses and he interjects his Visayan green jokes and delivers it in Tagalog with much more dismal results. But that is the charm of Duterte. His unassuming honesty.

He is honest to the point of being irreverent and funny to the point of morbidity. And the campaign has taken its toll on his sense of humor. Perhaps he was saying to the rapist, how dare rape her???Hindi mo man lang ako pinauna. Owing to his self-admission as a womanizer.

Yes , it was a bad joke and I apologize for not presenting myself as his writer of jokes. But a persons sense of humor should not be made an issue when there should be other things more important things to discuss.

However, when you are presidential candidate who has fhe momentum so great, it is stuff of legends, small things are all you can hope for to destroy. Rely on the pettiness of people, oversensitivity of a few women and the motivation of the losing stake-holders not to make it like it should be: A BAD JOKE. In the same manner why he called Mar as Bayot ans the term divided the LGBT because many insinuated it was demeaning to the gays.

We already know Mayor is not a stand-up comic. And he is not running to make us laugh. He is running to make us happy not because of bad jokes but with a promise of a better life when a bad joke about a rape victim will not be an issue because it no longer exists, it is okey to make a joke to remind people that it is a crime. 

And please, do not tell me the other candidates never told a bad joke in their lives. Mr. Palengke is a rich brat who owned the market. The foundling as the voice of the moneyed opportunists. And the Obama of the Philippines just because his skin color is dark and his honesty even darker.
The opponents of Duterte can hope that a bad joke will lose him an election. But you know what is worst that a bad joke? A BAD LIFE. 

Bruce Villafuerte Rivera, pasabi kay Mayor na hwag na muna siyang magjoke kasi pikon at sensitive ang mga haters.
