She also noted the case of Kidapawan farmers who rallied for rice but were countered with violence by the Philippine National Police.
She also shared that Duterte gave away 15,000 sacks of rice to the farmers.
"When 17 Vietnamese fishermen were caught fishing illegally in our waters, President Duterte pardoned them and sent them off --lovingly even--with instructions to our DSWD Sec Judy Taguiwalo to make sure they had provisions. And part of these provisions was rice, of course. We’re Asians! We need our rice." she wrote.
She also praised DSWD Secretary Judy Taguiwaldo for following orders and giving away relief boxes for victims of typhoons Lawin and Karen, which were packs of rice good for 3 days for a family of 5.
She said Taguiwalo shared that Duterte hated theidea that his countrymen were hungry that's why he frequents giving rice away.
"And I love how this President thinks this way because what it tells me is this is how he cares for us. That he really and truly thinks of us—in big ways and in small ways. And that his heart really is for us." she said.
"Tutoong public service. Hindi puro ngawngaw lang." she added.
She said she couldn't help but compare the two presidents.
"Comparing that shit Noynoy Aquino to the awesome president we have now makes me celebratory. It makes me want to give a most highly deserved and rousing standing ovation to Rodrigo Duterte while raining confetti down on him. It makes me see clearly." she said.
She said she is developing hopes and dreams for the country.
