MANILA, Philippines – Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio did not mince words when she lashed out at Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez for supposedly tagging her as a member of the opposition.
“The Philippines will be a better country if he is not Speaker. PRD (President Rodrigo Duterte) will be a stronger president without Alvarez,” Duterte-Carpio told Rappler on Thursday, February 22.
Duterte-Carpio also did not appreciate Alvarez supposedly telling media that she and her father were feuding and that she formed her regional political party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), without his blessing.
“This insecure fat sleaze is the epitome of the idiom barking at the wrong tree,” Duterte-Carpio said in a message to Rappler.
