10 Memes and Posts That Perfectly Capture Our Confusion Over That Tête-à-Tête
We're still not sure about what just happened.
(SPOT.ph) When President Rodrigo Duterte announced on September 10 that he will be holding a press conference the next day to "address the nation," many Filipinos wondered what exactly did he have to announce publicly. This afternoon, several tuned in to listen to President Duterte's address, originally scheduled at 3 p.m.—however, confusion arose when it was announced that the press conference would be cancelled, and then it was later clarified that the President would be addressing the public via a "tête-à-tête" alongside Atty. Salvador Panelo, without the media present.
Many Filipinos were confused by the whole affair, with the whirlwind turn of events regarding the schedule of the address to the content of President Duterte's speech. Several took to the Internet to express their confusion regarding the "tête-à-tête"—we round up 10 of the most interesting tweets and memes in reaction to it.
