Duterte 'has arrived,' says Panelo after face mask goes on sale on Amazon 1

The mask is described as showing “excellent realistic craftsmanship.” It is however not available for shipping to the Philippines.

Duterte’s spokesman Salvador Panelo said the mask is “amusing” and shows that the President “has arrived.”

“Amusing…talagang tinatakot yung mga criminal eh,” Panelo told reporters.

“‘Pag ikaw eh nagiging topic na sa lahat, niloloko ka, it means you have arrived. Otherwise, hindi ka papansinin,” he added.

(When you’re becoming a topic and people are already making fun of you, it means you have arrived, otherwise, they won’t pay attention to you.)

The oldest to become Philippine president, the 74-year-old Duterte has gained international prominence for his bloody crackdown on illegal drugs.
