GMA 7’s Raffy Tima has recently posted in Facebook saying that President Duterte’s Convoy was the cause of the traffic from Ortigas to Camp Crame.

He also criticized Duterte, mocking the slogan ‘Change is Coming.’

Here is what he said in his post on Friday, July 1, 2016.

Here’s one very interesting comment from a netizen named Nella Oriad:

“Not yet. Very excited ha. Calm yourself. Change starts within ourselves. Ourselves. Sa mga sarili natin. Have you changed for the better? Or u still continue to bash people you dont like? :)”

netizen comment on raffy tima post

Raffy Tima is the husband of Mariz Umali (strangely different surnames), who has become the center of the cat-calling issue of President Duterte about a month ago.

President Duterte took oath of office on Thursday, June 30, at Malacanang Palace.

    Mr. Tima, your comment on the traffic caused by the flow of the Presidential entourage is an excellent example of IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM. Being an an ordinary citizen, we truly understand the responsibility of a blameworthy journalist which is to “REPORT” an event or incident experienced by the journalist per see as opposed to JUDGING that particular event. Do you see the difference? Too bad, you are just showing how terrible your style is. You don’t deserve to be on TV.

  2. If you do not know how to report it right why work as a reporter?

    OK, SUGGESTION OR IDEA – DONT GET ME WRONG BECAUSE I DONT HAVE A CAR TO DRIVE, PRIVATE CAR OWNER MAYBE AFFECTED.
    DEAR PRESIDENT DUTERTE,
    1. LET ALL VACANT LOT SPACES ALONG AND OUTSIDE EDSA, BE USE AS PARKING SPACE FOR PRIVATE VEHICLE,ETC……OR BILHIN NG GOVERMENT.
    2. OPEN ALL SUPPOSED TO BE SIDEWALK FOR PUBLIC , AND REMOVE VENDORS AND DESTROY LAHAT NG ELIGAL NA SUMAKOP SA SIDEWALK TO EXPOSE…
    3. BUSES ,TAXIS AND JEEPNEY ARE THE ONLY ONE ALLOWED TO USE EDSA , AND PROVIDE THIER OWNED STOP AREA WITH SUGGESTED METER AWAY TO EACH OTHER.
    4 FARE IF POSSIBLE WOULD BE ONE PRICE AFFORTABLE AND REASONABLE TO EVERYONE AND SAME SA LRT AND MRT.
    5. PUBLIC VEHICLE CAN ONLY ENTER EDSA WHEN PASSING FROM ONE AREA OF EDSA , USING INTERSECTION ROAD..
    IF YOU HAVE BETTER IDEA, PROPOSAL, SUGGESTION , THANK YOU

  5. Yes it’s true,, pinepersonal na nya ang ating PRESIDENT…

    Rigth Mr Raffy Tima ….your statement is very smart … you represent your self for those Bias journalist…. you are very right example … ..SAYANG sana u think first before u post what a shame ””QUITE your job ..FILIPINOS don’t need a media person like you …simple situation ginawa mong big deal..””SHAME”

  7. Nandyan ka pa ba sa trabaho mo, Raffy Tima? As a journalist, mukhang may personal agenda ka sa message mo. Dyan nagsisimula ang isip corrupt, next thing you know, nagtatanggap ka na ng bribe money for messages like this. Dapat kang ilagay sa “watch list”.

  8. irresponsible reporter, misfits to the already corrupted media industry, Mariz maybe fell awkward to use “Tima” as her surename….. shame to you mR Raffy tIMA
