President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday again expressed his disbelief at being the country's highest elected official.

In his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), Duterte remarked "Hindi ko nga alam bakit andito [ako]. Dati andoon lang ako", pointing to the end of Batasan Pambansa session hall.

As SONA guests erupted in applause over his joke, the President said, "Sino mang nagsuporta sa inyo sa akin dito? Wala man."

"Not a single congressman, except for two provinces, governors. Iyun lang. Wala akong barangay, captain. Wala akong lahat, pero ngayon..." he added.
