The President’s Fear of Mayor Sara is All in His Mind
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte responds to Senator Imee Marcos when ask why she thinks her father is afraid of her. “Why does the President, your father, repeatedly say that he is afraid of you?” Senator Imee Marcos, a Duterte ally, asked Duterte-Carpio. This is during a confirmation hearing at the Senate.
Fear of his Daughter
Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio faces the Commission on Appointments recently. Instead of being quizzed about her promotion as Army reserve colonel, she was asked why her father President Rodrigo Duterte is “afraid” of her. Duterte praises his daughter’s political influence in separate events repeatedly. He cites her role in the ouster of Davao del Norte Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez as House Speaker hours before his third State of the Nation Address in 2018. Prior to this, the Filipino leader recalls her punching a government official in public.
The Marcos-Duterte Tandem is Hot
Senator Marcos’ Marcos-Duterte alliance revelation during the same event is currently the talk of the town via social media. However, an online poll discloses that the tandem would be between the President’s daughter and Senator Marcos’ brother, Bongbong Marcos. Many prefer Marcos to be President as per the initial intention of President Duterte prior to the elections 2016. It is when Imee Marcos is said to be his main supporter for his then Presidential campaign.
Vice President Leni Robredo as always denies destabilization allegation and calls it “baseless.” The alleged conspiracy by the “yellows” to destabilize the administration of President Du30 as Mayor Sara Du30 refers to as real as terrorism leads the President into issuing an ultimatum to initiate a “revolutionary government.” It’s the same as what the late Corazon Aquino did. This has irked the LP leader and accuses Du30 again of instilling fear among the people. There are two scenarios why this is so. One, her fellow government critic, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV goes out of his way to have a meeting with an anti-drug war counterpart in the US. The recount on the election protest that might make Bongbong Marcos the new VP soon is about to happen, secondly.

Robredo, who also chairs the former ruling party, the Liberal Party assures President Du30 by saying this; “when we criticize, it does not mean we want the government not to succeed.” Her remarks came after Du30 threatens to form a “revolutionary government” as he addresses the LP on TV telling them this; if ever “your destabilization is worsening and it is becoming chaotic.”
Du30 said that this “revolutionary government” would be similar to what President Corazon Aquino created shortly after the People Power Revolution in February 1986. He said that the “yellows and reds,” referring to the pro-Aquino and left-wing groups, should just unite since they shared “the same ideological whatever” of wanting to “kick me out” of office.
Not Rumors but Intelligence Reports
Presidential daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Du30, claims that “the threat of destabilization is as real as terrorism” if alleged intelligence reports were to go by. She also denies that her father was just being paranoid. On the other hand, anti-admin Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano maintains that “the destabilization narrative is only a fruit of their imagination.”
Words from the DFA Secretary on Trillanes
DFA Secretary, Alan Peter Cayetano said; “I worked with Senator Trillanes in the past and you know my respect to the Senate as an institution. All I can say is, although it’s a free world, it doesn’t help the country where there’s misinformation, disinformation, especially false information” “Even when I was a staunch critic of some presidents, I’ve never gone abroad to ask for help to topple them,” he said. He added that he requested a meeting with Rubio, but the Senator is still not available. Cayetano was also a VP contender and running mate of the President. However, he and his campaigners are already open to Bongbong Marcos’ possible victory against Robredo. They are convinced that Marcos as VP would stop destabilization efforts.
Mayor Sara, daughter of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is braver more than ever. She urges the people in Davao not to be terrorized by the market blast that happened in Davao. Read the full story here:
DAVAO – Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte stood firm that the city must “not be terrorized” by the blast that ripped through the city’s popular night market Friday evening.

Life really plays a game of chance – and often, it’s a chance to better circumstances around us. President Rodrigo Duterte have been very vocal sharing his discontent that it is very lonely up there – in the presidency where he is now. Everybody knew from the start the he is not intending to stay longer as president of the Philippines. As his war on drugs brings the nation into turmoil and uncertainty given the ultimatum of the United Nations against his illegal actions, he has something to celebrate but not only one fold but three.
It’a because his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, is pregnant with triplets. She shared the good news during the local festivity, Kadayawan Festival. The 38-year-old mayor is on her seventh week of pregnancy. The unborn fetuses are basically in good condition but Sarah is challenged by the triple symptoms. She is still working but a bit cautious until her doctor will advise her to stop if ever.
Presidential Communications Chief Martin Andanar announced that Lolo Digong was “delighted” hearing the news.
“Mayor Sara’s pregnancy serves as a source of inspiration for the Chief Executive to roll up his sleeves and work double time in his fight against crimes and drugs,” the statement added. When his roller coaster ride finally ends in the top public office, Duterte will definitely have a good private life to go back to that most people in his ripe good age would wish – spend time with cute little grand children and family.
