Amidst the controversies, Mayor Duterte continues to lead the Presidential race with over 6 million votes compared to Mar Roxas who has placed second. It was really a hard-earned success because the Mayor didn't have enough funds and was harshly bashed for his comments, jokes and allegedly hidden wealth. Social media is flooded with statements of admiration for Duterte for his pure intentions in serving and transforming the country.

In spite of all the praises, John Oliver, an Emmy-winning writer and famous English comedian, has his own satire pertaining to the soon-to-be Philippine president.

Oliver is hosting a show, Last Week Tonight, that reviews what happened in the past seven days about politics, news, current events and a lot more. During the discussion, he gives out his own opinion on the issues and mocks every person involved.

In one the episodes, John Oliver described the Philippines as World's War Shock Test. He continued by mocking Duterte with his mass wedding speech, assassination of criminals, bad 'rape joke,' and even emphasized the next Philippine President as the "Trump of the East." Worse, he said that in considering a politician, we should make sure that he is not a 'total f*cking monster.'

We all respect the views of the foreign media and personalities towards the Philippines, but there must be a limitation. The only person who has the right to persecute the Philippines is the one who has experienced living in the country and endured the struggles along with it. It is decent to just shut your mouth if you base your satire on edited video clips and biased opinions. You are stepping on the dignity, not just of Duterte, but the majority of the Filipino who elected him as president.
