Former ‘Born To Be Wild’ host Kiko Rustia calls out Sen. Bong Go

With President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent health problem issue, a lot of speculated that maybe the 75-year-old President is hiding something from the public.

Former GMA TV Host Kiko Rustia didn’t back down in calling out  Senator Bong Go when the latter issued a statement about the President’s medical condition.

On the Twitter account of Rustia, he retweeted a headline from Inquirer.net and stated his criticisms, “Manahimik ka wala kaming pakialam sa pinagsasabi mo. Di ka Doktor o asawa. EPAL, SAWSAWERO, at OPORTUNISTA ka wala nang iba.”

With President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent health problem issue, a lot of speculated that maybe the 75-year-old President is hiding something from the public.

To explain matters, Go, who has been with Duterte for decades, released a statement to clear any concerns once and for all about the President’s actual health status.

“Bagama’t may edad na ang Pangulo, ginagawa n’ya ang lahat para sa mga Pilipino. Buo ang kanyang loob na gampanan ang kanyang tungkulin bilang ama ng buong sambayanan na tumatayong poste ng ating tahanan para maalagaan at maprotektahan ang bawat Pilipinong itinuturing niyang anak.”

Netizens were also appalled by Go’s surprise attendance at cabinet meetings where he has no business to be there since he is a Senator.

This was when Go pressed for the Balik Probinya program last April as Metro Manila remains under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

Rustia, judging by his Twitter feed, is a Duterte critic.

The former GMA News host didn’t back down and slammed his former home network, GMA’s ‘24 Oras’ for its recent interview with Federation of International Cable TV and Telecommunications Association of the Philippines (FICTAP). FICTAP was against ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal since they felt its TV Plus service was their competitor.

Rustia, the former host of “Born to Be Wild,” said that if the show truly upholds fair journalism, it would have welcomed anyone from either side who has no “vested interest.”

“I’m sorry, GMA network, my home network, but last night’s report did sound one-sided,” he wrote on social media.



“If fair journalism was the goal, you should have interviewed someone without vested interest on either side. Or at least, with your FICTAP interview, fairly extended the same venue to ABS-CBN.”
