Outgoing Senator Antonio Trillanes IV believes Senator-elect Imee Marcos has reached a new level of hypocrisy for planning an Igorot ritual for the office that he will soon vacate.
In a statement Tuesday (June 25), Trillanes said there is nothing wrong if Marcos wants the Igorot ritual done to help her fulfill her job as a senator.
“But if she’s saying it to insinuate na masama akong tao, then sobrang ka-ipokritohan naman ‘yun, even for a Marcos,” he said.
Marcos suggested bringing in Igorots into the Senate to perform a ritual since she will be occupying Trillanes’ office.
She even said in jest that Trillanes should join in the Igorot dance performance.
“Yun na lang ang natira so kung papayag si Senator Trillanes, sasabihin ko kay Sonny (Trillanes’ nickname) makikisayaw kami du’n sa mga Igorot namin para mabendisyonan ng todo,” Marcos said.
