Sara Duterte pokes fun at Imee: ‘Dumadami ang kaaway ko dahil sa ‘yo!’
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN
CITY OF CALAMBA, Laguna – Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said in jest that she has gained more political enemies after defending administration senatorial bet and incumbent Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos against her detractors.
During Hugpong ng Pagbabago’s (HNP) proclamation rally in Calamba City, Laguna, Mayor Duterte poked fun at Marcos who has been a target of queries and criticisms specially from her rival candidates in the Liberal Party-led opposition.
“Unahin ko na ‘to. Dumadami ang kaaway ko dahil sa ‘yo!” Duterte told Marcos in jest while being introduced to the crowd.
The presidential daughter has been involved in a word war with Vice President Leni Robredo and several other members of the political opposition over the past few weeks after consistently defending the Ilocos Norte governor about her questionable degrees from Princeton University and University of the Philippines College of Law.
The Davao City mayor stressed that Osto Diresto senatorial bets and Robredo have no moral ascendency to question whether or not Marcos is saying the truth about her controversial degrees since they were also accused of lying.
But last Sunday, Mayor Duterte announced that she would be halting her tirades against the opposition upon the advice of her mother Elizabeth Zimmerman.
The presidential daughter revealed that her mom told her not to ‘bully’ the political opposition and to always “be kind first before anything else.”
