DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – The tables are turned! Who could forget tht encounter between Senator Antonio Trillanes and Davao City Vice Mayor and Presidential son Paolo Duterte in the halls of the Senate?
In that encounter, Trillanes asked Duterte to take his shirt off to prove that he has no dragon tattoo on his back, believed to be a mark of a drug syndicate member. Duterte refused of course.
Now, Duterte, elected Representative of the first legislative district of Davao, wants to return the favor to Trillanes whom he wants summoned to a Congressional hearing on the Bikoy video which now implicates the Senator.
“My sources tell me that Trillanes has a drug syndicate tattoo on his left thigh. When we meet again, I will ask Trillanes to take his pants off to prove the tattoo allegation false,” Duterte told The Adobo Chronicles.
Bring out the popcorn. Or tikoy. Or biko.
