Senator-elect Imee Marcos said that she would cleanse her upcoming room in the Senate which currently being used by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
Marcos said that she got the room of Sen. Trillanes through a raffle they participated on Tuesday after the Senate orientation.
The outgoing Ilocos Norte governor also said that she’s going to call some Igorot to dance at Trillanes’ room before the 18th Congress starts.
“Siguro magpapatawag ako ng mga Igorot namin dahil kailangan basbasan ang office ko dahil kay Sen. Trillanes ata ang nabunot. Iyun na lang natira, nahuli yata ang tao ko. Sabi bunutan eh,” Marcos told reporters.
“Iyun na lang ang natira so kung papayag si Sen. Trillanes, sasabihin ko kay Sonny makikisayaw kami sa mga Igorot namin para mabendisyunan ng todo.” she added.
Igorot dance is being done if someone is asking for either bountiful harvest, healing, or economic progress.
Senator-Elect Christopher “Bong” Go who also attended the orientation and picked the room of outgoing Sen. Gregorio Honasan suggested that Marcos should also call for a priest to bless the room of Trillanes.
Meanwhile, Senator Trillanes is seems irritated by the recent statements of Marcos, saying that it’s hypocritical if the upcoming lawmaker is insinuating that he’s a bad person.
“If she’s saying it to insinuate na masama akong tao, then sobrang ka-ipokritohan naman yun,” Trillanes said.
Marcos is one of the closest political allies of President Duterte, while Trillanes is a fierce critic of the current administration.
Incoming Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa will get the office of incoming Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, while Francis Tolentino will get the Senate room of JV Ejercito.
