Philippine presidential aspirant Rodrigo ‘Digong’ Duterte said during his sortie in Pastrana Park in Kalibo capital town that the Australian and United States ambassadors should keep their mouth shut and stay out of Philippine politics.
“You’re not Filipinos. Shut up. Do not interfere because it’s election time.” Mayor Duterte said in front of his about 5,000 supporters. “I was exercising my constitutional rights” he also said.
This in response to the statements of the two ambassadors regarding The Davao City mayor’s Rape joke.

Klay Thompson led the warriors scoring 34 points and dished out five assists for the defending champions, playing without the NBA MVP Steph Curry because of an injured right ankle.

James Harden had 28 points and 11 assists to lead the Rockets. He made 13 of 15 free throws after not attempting one in the opener.
Big man Marreese Speights hit a key momentum 3-pointer from the baseline with 8.2 seconds remaining in the third quarter to make it 86-79, and the deep, versatile Warriors showed they can win without Curry on the playoff stage just as everybody on the roster believed.
Shaun Livingston, who left Sunday’s practice with an illness, had 16 points and six assists playing in Curry’s place.
After a 26-point victory in Game 1, the Warriors had to work a little harder in Game 2.
