Opposition politikos and netizens have criticized President Rodrigo Duterte and his former aide, Senator Bong Go, for making it appear the Chief Executive’s birthday celebration in Davao City was simple.

Photos shared by Go to reporters on Sunday (March 28) showed Duterte blowing a candle on top of a mound of rice. He was at home wearing a t-shirt.

A plate with a little serving of pancit can also be seen in Go’s photos.

However, photos and a video which surfaced online showed Duterte had more food on the table for his birthday. Eagle-eyed netizens spotted lechon and a small cake, which someone brought to the President so he can blow the candle on top.

Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Ferdinand Gaite said Duterte made a mockery of poor Filipinos through the photos shared by Go.

“Acting poor for your birthday photo ops when you’re not really poor is just mocking those who truly have nothing to put on their tables for their own birthdays,” he said.

Former senator Antonio Trillanes IV called out Inquirer.net for using the photos from Go.

“I am calling out the http://Inquirer.net for allowing itself to be used as a propaganda tool of duterte/bong go. Be bearers of the truth! Next time, don’t just use photos fed to you by bong go,” he said.

ABS-CBN reporter Chiara Zambrano tweeted: “Ay may lechon. Ay may totoong cake. Ay may akmang hihipuan.”

Netizen @Tmt1484 tweeted: “Expert talaga sa pambubudol ang mga tuta ng China!”

Twitter user @BrujaDelDemonio sarcastically said: “Kaibigan niya may-ari ng Conti’s tapos wala man lang bumili ng Mango Bravo cake para sa birthday niya? Kawawa naman si Tatay, nagtitiis na lang sa kanin na nilagyan na lang ng kandila. Napaka simpleng tao talaga ni Tatay”
