Former Quezon Rep. Erin Tañada may come from a respected political family, but President Rodrigo Duterte believes he’s nothing like his famous relatives.

Duterte belittled Tañada in a speech in Batangas on April 17, claiming he did nothing but defend suspected communists in court.

“Erin Tañada. What’s in a name? Tatay niya idol namin lahat mga abugado, marami man tayo abugado dito. Binabasa natin ‘yung libro. Pero itong Erin na ito, we elected him once upon a time a senator. What did he do? Mag-sige depensa ng mga komunista sa korte,” he said during PDP-Laban’s campaign sortie.

The government, which was paying for his salary… wala talagang ginawa. Ang tatay nationalist. Ito list lang, walang national,” Duterte added.

Tañada’s father, Wigberto, served as a senator from 1987 to 1995. His grandfather and namesake, Lorenzo, was an abogado and human rights activist famously known for opposing martial law under dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
