Break muna sa pagbira! Pangilinan asks Kris Aquino for ceasefire after rants vs. Mar Roxas

Liberal Party president Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan has asked Kris Aquino for a “ceasefire” after she went on an Instagram offensive against former senator Mar Roxas over a newspaper article.

Aquino revealed Pangilinan’s request as she maintained that her rants against Roxas’ camp was only borne out of the hurt she felt because the former senator seemingly dropped her brother, former President Benigno Aquino III, like a hot potato after the 2016 elections.

“Bunso akong nasaktan dahil sa nabasa ko: inapakan ang pagkatao ng kapatid ko, na nanatiling tapat sa taong paniwala syang totoong kaibigan nya. Nung nilaglag sya ng ganun ganun lang- pumalag ako,” she said in an Instagram post Sunday (April 14).

An article published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer quoted Roxas’ campaign manager, Caloocan City Rep. Edgar Erice as saying that wearing the color yellow doomed the former senator’s chances of winning the 2016 presidential race.

Yellow was the color of the Liberal Party (LP), of which Roxas was the standard bearer and Aquino was chairman.

It has also become the catch-all phrase for critics of President Rodrigo Duterte, who may or may not be allied with LP.

“It was a conscious decision [to change colors] because one mistake [Roxas] made in 2016 was acting like Robin to [Aquino’s] Batman … and Robin will never be Batman,” Erice told Inquirer reporter DJ Yap.

Erice said Roxas has reverted to wearing blue, his trademark color, to improve his chances of winning the 2019 senatorial race.

Aquino shared a few photos of herself on Instagram looking gaunt, which she attributed to health concerns. In a jab at Roxas, the actress said she doesn’t want to fool or blame others for her condition.

“Walang filter, walang inayos, yung swollen lymph nodes in my neck, yung face na lubog na sinusubukang itago sa inyo- nilabas na lang. Kasi ayokong mabuhay na niloloko kayo at ang sarili ko. Yun ang kaya kong panghawakan- NEVER KONG binlame sa iba ang mga pagkadapa at pagkatalo ko,” she said.

i archived my other post not because i don’t stand by everything i said, but because ma respeto akong pinakiusapan ni @kiko.pangilinan ng “ceasefire.” Please know this about me, when i have seen a person is GENUINE, madali akong kausap, kaya kong magbigay. Bunso akong nasaktan dahil sa nabasa ko: inapakan ang pagkatao ng kapatid ko, na nanatiling tapat sa taong paniwala syang totoong kaibigan nya. Nung nilaglag sya ng ganun ganun lang- pumalag ako. Pero mag react man ako, mabubura ba nun yung sugat sa puso ni Noy na alam kong sa pagkatao nya- never tayong makakabalita ng kahit anong sama ng loob? baka mas lalo pa syang masaktan dahil alam nyang kaming mga kapatid nya nadurog ang puso para sa kanya. umiikot naman ang mundo. i accompanied this post w/ a few selfies from a couple of nights ago because i was checking on my neck & eyes because of my health issues. Walang filter, walang inayos, yung swollen lymph nodes in my neck, yung face na lubog na sinusubukang itago sa inyo- nilabas na lang. Kasi ayokong mabuhay na niloloko kayo at ang sarili ko. Yun ang kaya kong panghawakan- NEVER KONG binlame sa iba ang mga pagkadapa at pagkatalo ko.
