Who will Duterte save: Roxas, Poe or Binay?


If former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas, Vice President Jejomar Binay and Senator Grace Poe all accidentally fell in the crocodile farm in Davao City, who will Mayor Rodrigo Duterte save first?

None, unfortunately, said Duterte during the "No Filter" segment of "Ikaw Na Ba? Para Sa Pamilyang Pilipino" on radio dzMM Wednesday.

"Wala," he said. "Eh nandiyan, kinain na lang rin, bakit ka pa maghahanap ng kalaban?"

Duterte, Roxas, Binay, and Poe are all running for president in next year's elections.

The mayor said he considers all three of them, as well as Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, strong contenders in the presidential race.

During the interview, Duterte was also asked to provide descriptions, preferably a single word, to various personalities.

For Roxas, he said "near disaster," explaining that "mahilig siya magpunta doon sa mga disaster."

For Binay, "sympathy," adding: "He prepared for the presidency for so long and what happened to him? This is his lifetime dream... It's not that (he no longer has a chance) but the hell that he is undergoing."

Here are his other answers:

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima: "Like Jane of Tarzan."

Former Commission on Human Rights (CHR) chairperson Etta Rosales: "Old age."

His daughter Inday Sara Duterte: "Rebellious."

Senator Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr.: "Good guy."

His running mate, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano: "Gentleman."

Senator Miriam Santiago: "More than qualified."

Senator Grace Poe: "Beautiful."

Senator Francis Escudero: "Not so brilliant."

President Benigno Aquino III: "Friend."

Pope Francis: "Near God."

ABS-CBN broadcast journalist Karen Davila: "Delicious."
