10 Burning Tweets About Duterte's First 100 Days
It's been eventful, to say the least.
(SPOT.ph) President Rodrigo R. Duterte's first 100 days in office has been met with polarizing reactions. Former president Fidel V. Ramos thinks it's "a huge disappointment and let-down to many of us" while a certain Carla from Tacloban thinks that "he is also sincere, honest, and hardworking, and he loves the poor and the weak" as reported by The Guardian. A Social Weather Stations survey reported that seven out of 10 Filipinos (76%) were "satisfied" with what he has done so far. About 88% of the respondents who said that they were satisfied with the president's performance came from Mindanao.
The president has stuck to his promise of eliminating drugs in the country—with thousands of suspected addicts and pushers dead. His capability for diplomacy has also been questioned after he expressed less than friendly remarks against U.S. President Barack Obama, the European Union, and other international communities.
We round up a handful of reactions on Twitter on the president’s first few months in Malacañang.
My observation: The first 100Days of Pres Duterte gave rise to more afformative/derivational suffixes. (tard, topia, turd, wan) Form change!— Gang Capati (@gangbadoy) October 9, 2016

The first 100 days of the Duterte Admin is comprised of two things: CERTAINTIES and UNCERTAINTIES.— Mark (@mark_nz0511) September 28, 2016
Sounds like an existential crisis.

100 days completed. Have Duterte's appointees been paid yet? Do they have appointment papers yet? Have new boards of GSIS/SSS been chosen?— Nik (@iwriteasiwrite) October 10, 2016
