Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte hit a malicious photo showing his father, President Rodrigo Duterte, with some healthcare workers, saying the use of the photo to attack the latter shows the desperation of anti-Duterte groups.

“It tastes poorly as the country is fighting against the spread of the deadly (Coronavirus Disease) Covid-19 infection,” she said in a statement posted on the Facebook page of the City Government of Davao. “It also shows their disrespect of the sacrifices of the healthcare workers who are on the frontlines.”

She said the photo was taken early in March 2017 in Davao City when he visited a private hospital after his grandchild, Stonefish, was born.

The photo has been going the rounds on social media now and presented to appear like it was recently taken.

“That it is malicious and presented to confuse the public and stir outrage against the President and the healthcare workers is obvious,” she said.

She added that this kind of political attack in this time of health crisis deserves nothing but outright rejection and condemnation.

“Our common enemy is toxic and deadly enough. We should not allow our common resolve to overcome this health crisis be poisoned by the political toxicity of those who are against the government,” she said. (PNA)
