MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – They finally came face to face in the hall of the Senate: Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte and Senator Antonio Trillanes.

It happened during the Senate hearing on the smuggling of illegal drugs from China.  Duterte’s name and that of his brother-in-law Atty. Mans Carpio were mentioned during a previous testimony by witness Mark Taguba.

At one point during Trillanes’ questioning of Duterte, the senator asked the vice mayor if he had a tattoo on his back.  Duterte answered in the affirmative, but when Trillanes tried to confirm what the tattoo looked like, the mayor invoked his right to privacy.

As a follow up question, Trillanes asked if Duterte would be willing to show him the tattoo on his back.  In response, Duterte said, “I’ll show you my tattoo if you show me yours.  I heard from the grapevine that you have a tattoo on your butt.”

At that point, Trillanes turned to Senator Gordon and said, “I have no further questions, Mr. Chairman.”

An eye for an eye.  A tattoo for a tattoo!
