Duterte: Cory is popular for losing husband in the hands of Mr. Marcos
Former TV host Kris Aquino thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for acknowledging that Ferdinand Marcos was the man behind the killing of her father Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino.
In a series of tweet recently, Kris said she still admired President Duterte’s authenticity.
“I still admire your authenticity President Duterte, but please allow a daughter to speak through this post? Kasi po sa maraming magandang narinig ko mula mismo sa mga Duterte supporters & members of government patungkol po sa inyo, lahat sila sinasabi, naguumapaw ang pagmamahal ninyo po sa inyong mommy, si Nanay Soling. Pareho po tayo, i love my mom with all my heart,” Kris wrote on her Twitter account.
Kris also posted the quote of President Duterte acknowledging Cory’s husband lose in the “hands of Mr. Marcos”
“Kasi may quote po si PRRD na nakitaan ko ng katotohanan ang kaniyang mga nabitawang salita. Direct quote ‘Cory Aquino maybe popular, she is popular today. Why? For losing the husband in the hands of Mr. Marcos…’” Kris wrote.
“Thank you for acknowledging our family’s loss, and who was behind it. Salamat, Mr. President,” she added.
In his speech in Davao, President Duterte said Cory only became popular after the death of her husband Ninoy.
“Cory Aquino may be popular. She is popular today. Why? For losing the husband in the hands of Mr. Marcos,” Duterte said.
The death of Ninoy triggered the 1986 People Power revolution ending the 20-year reign of Marcos in power. The blood-less revolution also made Cory the president of the republic.
Duterte is known Marcos ally as his late father Vicente served in the late strongman’s pre-martial law cabinet. In November 2016, Duterte allowed Ferdinand Marcos’ burial at the hallowed Libingan ng mga Bayani despite protests.
In 2018, however, Duterte admitted that it was Cory who jump-started his career in politics. He was appointed as officer-in-charge vice mayor in Davao City, where he later served as mayor for 22 years.
Duterte also said his mother Soledad was among Aquino’s original supporters in Davao City.
