Manila, Philippines - Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro “Teddyboy” Locsin Jr. lambasted GMA 7 political analyst Richard Heydarian for his degrading comments on how President Rodrigo Duterte handles foreign affairs.

Locsin posted on his Twitter account for his followers on Monday (July 8) that they should not get the truth from “sore losers.”

He tweeted the comment in response to a netizen, @marortoll, who said the Philippines always lags behind because people aspire to put one over the other.

“Believe the truth. Listen to Freddie Mercury’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Listen to the truth wheresoever or from whomsoever it comes, the truth and nothing but the truth. But don’t get it from sore losers; they’re incapable of it,” Locsin said.

Netizen @marortoll posted on twitter criticizing Heydarian for asking netizens who they would rather believe on the issue of the West Philippine Sea: President Duterte or the former Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonio Carpio.

Heydarian asked the netizens, “Who to believe? A bar top notcher jurist or a pasang awa mayor?”   in connection to the recent news article about Carpio saying the country’s exclusive economic zone is not “thoughtless and senseless.”

"The 'use and enjoyment' of these resources cannot be shared with, or given away, to foreign nationals,"  Carpio added.

Duterte has understated the Constitution’s provision on the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), saying China can fish in Philippine waters that are supposedly exclusive for Filipinos’ enjoyment.
