Not only President Rodrigo Duterte found himself in the middle of the quarreling Barreto sisters during the wake of their patriarch.
In a news report, actor and politician Edu Manzano also witnessed how Marjorie, Claudine, Gretchen, and their other family members made a commotion in front of the coffin of Miguel Alvir Barretto.
According to Politiko, Edu Manzano tried to stand in the middle of Claudine and Marjorie to try to break up the fight, however, he was caught by one of the Barreto sister fists.
It was reported that their mother, Inday fainted after she witnessed how her children continued their war even during the wake of their father.
The confrontation began when Claudine asked Marjorie’s daughter, Julia why she’s present in the wake.
“Why are you here?” Claudine asked Julia.
“You, why are you here?” Julia responded.
Claudine felt disrespected and told the other members of the Barreto clan about the attitude showed by Julia.
Julia’s mother defended her daughter which resulted in the confrontation.

President Duterte and Sen. Christopher “Bong” Go were present during the said incident.
“Dun ako nakakita ng parang totoong eksena parang shooting ng eksena sa totoong buhay, kung ano nakikita mo sa pelikula,” Go told reporters in an interview in Novaliches, Quezon City Friday.
“Pumunta po [kami doon] para makiramay sa yumaong ama ng mga Barretto dahil kaibigan po ni Pangulo ang mga Barretto. Unfortunately, may away ang pamilya,” he added.
