I was with President Widodo, what is the dimension of your problem? In Indonesia, we have 4 million drug addicts. Eh, sabi ko, nauna ka lang pala ng ilang thousand! We are really worried. Ganito yan.

I never made a statement here. Do not believe that. There was never any interview here. But kung mag spin itong media, that’s why I said, if you are really, my advice for you, magkaibigan lang, for whatever reason, what can you say, kung ano masabi mo, because they can spin stories several times over and all lies, I never confronted Obama here cause I do not know him. Before taking off from Davao, nagkaroon ng presscon.

Alam mo, ganito yan, itong mga yellow, may jaundice eh, at itong mga taga State Department, mabasa ninyo ang Philippine news that they were trying to crucify me for the extra judicial killing at sabing ganun, I will be investigated by the international court. Di hinayaan ko na lang. Sabi ko, United States, why? Or should I answer them? Eh bakit? So yung ganun. And that there will be a certain time that Obama will ask me about the human rights problem. Sabi ko, I do not answer to anybody except to the Filipino people. I am only responsible to you. Kaya sabi ko, “Who he?” yun ang sinabi ko. if somebody brings it out, and that was in the airport in Davao City, it would be an act of disrespect. Bastos yan. Yun lang ang sinabi ko. and you can review the tapes. Hindi ko sinabing #$%@. May sinabi ako, not in relation with Obama.

He also cited about a live report of Ed Lingao that is immediately picked by the international press.

Ed Lingao’s apology letter

You can review the tape because about yesterday, si Ed Lingao, whom, yung breaking news naglagay doon ng statement na minura ko daw si Obama. Ed Lingao, just also read it from the report from the correspondents in Davao. Ni review niya. Sya yung anchor eh. Then I found out, andiyan, lumabas sa Facebook, he apologized. Because I never made any reference to Obama. Kaya pinapaaway lang.

“Ito pong ginagawa ng UNTV, mga public services, napakarami po nito. It will not be possible without the help of the Almighty, the Members of the Church of God International, lahat ng mga team na lumahok, kasi naniniwala kaming bayani kayong lahat. You sweat.. para ikaw ay mapagod para makagawa ka ng tulong sa mga charitable institutions kagaya ng mananalong team, ido-donate nila yung kanilang mapapanalunan doon sa mga charitable institutions of their choice, naniniwala akong it’s a kind of sacrifice. Salamat sa ating mga senador, mga pulis, sa government agencies na lumahok, patunayan ninyo na sa paglahok pa lang ninyo, inyong pagnanais na makatulong sa kapwa Pilipino. Kailangang kailangan kayo ng bayan. Samahan nawa kayo ng Panginoon mga kapatid, mga kababayan, mga kaibigan at sana palawakin pa ang magagawang charitable works ng UNTV sa pamamagitan din ng UNTV Cup.

Eventhough it is a rough start of the two teams (Cavaliers vs Defenders), every player held it together throughout the game and ends the game with high spirits. AFP Cavaliers won with a score of 85-71, as Boyet Bautista got the player of the game.
