It seems that megastar Sharon Cuneta really loves her Tatay Digong.
During their meeting at the roll-out of Philippine Airlines’ (PAL) new Airbus A350 and A321 Neo aircraft at the Lufthansa Technik Philippines located in the Macro Asia Special Economic Zone of Villamor Air Base in Pasay City on July 17, 2018, Sharon Cuneta has been spotted hugging and kissing the President.
Before their meeting, Cuneta who’s at the stage to perform during the event greeted President Rodrigo Duterte and Philippine Airlines CEO Lucio Tan who’s celebrating his 83rd birthday.
She also said that the song that she’s going to perform is dedicated to the President.
“This song (Pure Imagination by Gene Wilder) has been specially chosen for this occasion, Mr. President this is for you,” Cuneta said before she started her performance.
The photos which uploaded by Facebook fan page I am Pinoy, Proud Ako receive different reactions from the netizens.
Some were happy about the recent encounter between Cuneta and Duterte, while the others expressed their doubts about the real intention of the megastar as the well-known singer has been married to Senator Kiko Pangilinan, one of the fiercest critic of President Duterte.
“Ingat… Ingat sa mga ninja moves ng mga opposition, marami patibong.” Netizen Leojj Senaibe said
“Sa tingin ko walang drama ang yakap na yan. Totoong totoo… pasasalamat sa mga nagawa ng ating Presidente para sa mamamayan at sa bayan.” Nico Nuico remarked.
A netizen also explained why Sharon is very close to Duterte. She also urged the supporters of the President to give the megastar a chance to show her love to Tatay Digong.
“Ang tatay ni Sharon ay isang malapit At mabuting kaibigan ng pangulo. Na miss nya lang ang papa nya ng makita ang pangulo. Kaya ganon ang kiss nya dahil ayaw nya malagyan ng lipstick ang pisngi ng pangulo. The love and the hug is real! we can’t judge her because asawa sya ni kiko. Give her a chance na mahalin ang pangulo kagaya ng pagmamahal natin sa kanya” Netizen Dahlia Ornopia said.
The support of Cuneta to Duterte was publicly known, despite being the wife of the opposition leader, it didn’t stop her from praising the President on social media.
“Everyone let’s aim for peace here. Doesn’t matter. We know they (Duterte and Pangilinan) are on opposing sides. But I appreciate the President’s respect for him, and me, and my friendship with Inday Sara which started long before anyone knew Pres. Duterte was going to run for his present position,” Cuneta said last year in her Facebook post.
Duterte also shared that his daughter Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte is a solid Sharon Cuneta fan.
“Ma’am Sharon, thank you for remembering me, I am your good friend. Yung daughter ko na si Sara (Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio) eh talagang ina-idolize ka hanggang ngayon.” President Duterte said in a video message that he sent to Cuneta.
Despite the exchanges of sweet message between his wife and President Duterte, Senator Kiko Pangilinan remained silence and didn’t comment about Cuneta’s close relationship with his political enemy.
