MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine President-elect Rod Duterte is known for using curse words during his media interviews, earning for him the description of “foul-mouthed” mayor of Davao City.
For a change, Duterte is promising that he will not swear during his swearing-in ceremony on June 30.
To clarify, Duterte’s spokesperson said the mayor will take his oath of office and swear to uphold the constitution of the Philippines, but he will avoid using any cuss words during his brief inaugural speech.
“To avoid any slip of the tongue, Duterte will read his speech from a teleprompter,” the spokesperson said.
All’s well that ends well.
