Another one bites the dust.

Those who prematurely raised a howl of protest over the offer of the University of the Philippines of a Doctorate Degree Honoris Causa should have made a check on the character of President Rody Duterte.

Duterte, even when he was Mayor never allowed his name or photo to be plastered on government vehicles or on billboards of government road projects.

In fact, he refused the prestigious World Mayor Award in 2014.

"Trabaho ko yan. I don't need to be awarded," he said.

Those who protested should have checked who Duterte is.

Now, their faces are as red as a rotten Gumamela.
