Trillanes to Duterte: Why are your knees shaking?
If I am insignificant, why are your knees shaking?
This was how Senator Antonio Trillanes IV shot back at President Rodrigo Duterte’s remark that the senator was “too insignificant to bother with” when asked if the latter would follow Senator Leila de Lima’s fate.
“Bakit nangangatog ung tuhod nya kung insignificant ako (If I am insignificant, then why are his knees shaking)?”
Trillanes said in a text message Monday night when sought for comment on Duterte’s remark.
“Ano’t ano pa man, buksan nya na lang yung mga accounts nya. Para malaman na ng taumbayan na magnanakaw sya (He should just make his accounts public. So the public will know he’s a thief),” he added.
Trillanes has accused Duterte of owning P2.2 billion in bank deposits and dared the President to make his bank accounts public. The senator said he is willing to resign from the Senate if proven wrong.
