Sara hits 'opportunistic' Kiko, Risa, Trillanes
DAVAO City Mayor and Presidential daughter Sara Duterte exposed on Thursday the alleged presidential ambitions of three senators who are part of the group “Tindig Pilipinas,” which she mocked as “Hunger Games Pilipinas.”
“Lahat ito hindi chismis kasi personal knowledge ko at may corroborative witnesses ako. Matanong ko lang, nu’ng mga panahon na humingi kayo ng tulong, may isyu ba kayo sa governance ni PRD (President Rodrigo Duterte)? Wala,” Sara said in a Facebook
“Ngayon na nanalo na siya? Meron. Hunger Games, Pilipinas: Plastic na, oportunista pa. Kayo 3 may ambisyon mag-Presidente, I grew up in politics, mas matagal pa ako sa pulitika kesa sa inyo 3 combined. I smell ambition a million miles away. Akala ninyo ‘yung circus ninyo ngayon magpapanalo sa inyo sa 2022? Hindi,” she added.
The presidential daughter was referring to Senators Francis “Kiko” Panglinan, Risa Hontiveros, and Antonio Trillanes IV.
Sara claimed that Pangilinan met her years ago to get her father’s endorsement.
“Kiko Pangilinan-- Several years ago nagkita tayo dito sa Davao, sa isang golf club, pinuntuhan mo si PRD. Gusto mo tumakbo Presidente, ansabemo? ‘ Wi t h Sharon’s [endorsement] and your (PRD) [endorsement] I’m sure I can make it.’ Dati pa-[endorse] ka sa kanya ngayon may pa Hunger Games salute effect ka,” Sara said.
She also said Hontiveros sought her help during her campaign.
“Risa Hontiveros – Sa picture ikaw ang pinaka makapal ang foundation acheng. Habang tinutulungan ko si PRD at ang nanay ko mangampanya, nasa byaheng du30 ako, ilang beses mo ako inabala, kinulit at tinawagan para humingi ka ng tulong sa boto mo sa Davao City? I can remember your bored face listening to me in our law office just so you can get support for Davao,” Sara said.
The Davao mayor said that aside from the two, Trillanes requested for President Rodrigo Duterte’s help in his campaign as vice president.
“Trillanes – Years ago, nagrequest ka makipagkita sa akin dito sa Davao, nasa Damosa ka, ano sabi ko sa emissary mo? No. You know why? I never liked your circus sa Manila Peninsula. Pero meron ako picture na nakipagkit a ka k ay PRD kasi humingi ka ng tulong niya sa VP campaign mo,” she said.
Sara, meanwhile, said she would reserve her remarks on Vice President Leni Robredo since she said the latter claimed she was not part of the “Hunger Games Pilipinas” anyway.
Sara also slammed as “Paninindigang Trapo” the criticisms the three senators hurled against Duterte.
“Mamuyboy ko? Yes. You don’t use PRD whenever convenient para sa pulitika ninyo (for your political ambitions). Kung wala ang boto ng Mindanao, mananalo kaya kayo (If you did not have Mindanao’s vote, would you win)?” the mayor added.
