Check out these #SONA2017 memes, reactions on social media

President Rodrigo Duterte delivered his second State of the Nation Address (SONA) on July 24, 2017 in Batasang Pambansa, Quezon City.

The President enumerated what his administration has accomplished so far since he took his oath as the highest executive of the land last June 30, 2016 and what issues he would resolve in the future.

In reaction to Duterte’s SONA, several netizens used memes to express themselves.

One Twitter user imagined how Duterte’s speech writer would have felt when the President went off-script.

“No Direction”

Senator Nancy Binay made it to the memes.

Representatives Emmi de Jesus and Arlene Brosas were hailed as candidates for the “best dressed” SONA attendees for their statement dresses against endo and martial law.

Someone agreed with whatever this expression from Vice President Leni Robredo seemed to convey.

The interpreter was featured in the memes, too.

The parody page Superficial Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines wanted to offer a prayer for the transcribers of the 2-hour long SONA and the results of their drinking game.

“Let us pray for the victims of the #SONA2017. The poor souls who have to TRANSCRIBE over 2 hours of Duterte talking,” SGRP wrote.

Netizens also reacted to the close-up shots used by SONA director Brillante Mendoza.

As for those wondering how to relay Duterte’s curse words in sign language, someone posted this meme.

Kilay is life indeed!

It boiled down to Ariel vs Brand X.

And the sponsors are?
