The reason why the Liberal Party or the "yellows" are trying to destabilize President Rodrigo Duterte is because they want to hide his improvements.

Herbert Florida in his Facebook account outlined 79 reasons why the Liberal Party is trying to ruin the image of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Duterte's ratings, along with that of his appointees remained "good", according to the lates Social Weather Stations survey conducted last Spet 23 to 27.

With most of his opposition being associated with the LP, the latter is often accused of trying to destabilize the Duterte government, by people of all walks of life, from the citizenry to elected leaders.

Florida accompanied his post with a cartoon where people representing Duterte's "enemies' are pointing at him.

These people were Magdalo Representative Hary Alejano, Senators Antonio Trillanes, Risa Hontiveros, Leila de Lima, Francis Pangilinan, former DILG Secretary Mar Roxas and Vice President Leni Robredo.
