Last Sunday, Duterte’s son, Sebastian Duterte, and Poe’s son, Brian Llamanzares, were spotted showing bromance after the most-awaited final presidential debate.
Vice Ganda, who was also in attendance during the Pilipinas Debates 2016 last April 24, posted an intriguing photo on his Instagram account. The photo shows Sebastian Duterte, eldest son of Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, together in a picture with Brian Llamanzares, only son of Grace Poe. It is intriguing to see two children of two presidential rivals in a photo together. They even look like they’ve been friends for a long time.
We couldn’t agree more with what Vice Ganda has said in his account: “Ang saya tingnan ng larawan na to. Bukod sa gwapo sila napakapositibo lang ng dating na makita silang ganyan.” (It’s nice to see this photo. Besides the fact that they’re both handsome, it’s very positive to see them like that.) It’s really nice to see a photo of Duterte’s son and Poe’s son showing bromance especially after the heated debate that pitted both of their parents.
Duterte’s son has been seen posing next to his father’s rival showing that he has no bad blood with them. He even posted a photo of him with Miriam Defensor Santiago, on his Facebook account a few days ago. Baste only gave high praises and admiration to the senator in his open letter. Perhaps, he also thinks highly of Grace Poe and her son, Brian.
This photo also reflects that despite the fact that their parents may have different views in politics they can still become friends. During the last leg of the presidential debate, Duterte and Poe were pitted against each other. Poe may have asked some tough questions to Duterte, particularly about the future of women in his presidency, but she has explicitly said that they remain as good friends.
Hope we can see something like this with Roxas’s son, Paolo Roxas and Binay’s son, Junjun Binay as well.
