Ang Probinsyano actress Agot Isidro made a jaw-dropping remark on facebook that went viral when she referred to our President as a “psychopath”.
Isidro made on Friday a criticizing statement of Duterte’s way of dealing with our international relations with the US and international bodies and for belittling as “crumbs” the foreign aid that the country had been receiving.
(First of all, no one’s trying to fight you. As a matter of fact, you’re the one who’s picking a fight. Secondly, the country where you are elected as President by 16 million out of 100+ million is Third World. You talk as if the Philippines is a superpower. Excuse me, we don’t want to go hungry. If you want, you do it yourself. Leave us out of it. So many people have nothing to eat, and yet you’ll starve us even further.)
“Pangatlo, may kilala akong psychiatrist. Patingin ka. Hindi ka bipolar. You are a psychopath,” she said.
(Third, I know a psychiatrist. Get yourself checked. You’re not bipolar. You are a psychopath.)
Prior to Isidro’s shade, a professor in De Lasalle University, Antonio P. Contreras, threw his too with a powerful statement regarding the political illiteracy of the actress.
Here is the full quote,
“Agot Isidro should be ashamed of herself. What she said is precisely what happens when you become mendicant. You think heavens will fall and we will all get hungry just because the US and the EU are pissed off.
Let me educate you Ms. Isidro. International relations is not as simple as you think it is. Countries do not behave like the soap opera characters you play where a bitchiness of one leads to a catfight, or a fistfight.
It is not what leaders say that matters. It is what is in their country’s best interests.
You say we are not a superpower? My dear, we may not be but we are strategically located that countries like China and the US wouldl like to have a piece of us. Yes, Ms. Isidro. We have what many want except that we have been so effing loyal to the US even if it treats us badly in many agreements. Its about time we have to tell the US to treat us right since there are others ready and willing to take its place.
So before you even try ranting, read first. Okay.
By the way, I am a political scientist. You may want to have one-on-one political literacy. Youbadly need it. You seem to be ignorant of the nuances of politics and IR. Don’t worry, I will not charge your for consultation. I will do it pro Bono for the love of country.”
