Senator JV Ejercito Shows His Macho Tattoo, Not A Type Person of Trillanes
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is not interested of Senator JV Ejercito’s tattoo when he showed his Macho tattoo to him. Trillanes was desperate to see Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte’s “dragon-like” tattoo, which he claims would prove the presidential son’s link with a Chinese triad.
Sen. JV Ejercito pokes fun at Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV’s challenge to Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte to show his “triad.” His tattoo symbolized the Katipunan’s Magdiwang faction, the adversary of the Magdalo faction led by late president Emilio Aguinaldo. Incidentally, Magdalo is the name of Trillanes’ group that launched two failed coup d’etat against former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
Trillanes responded to Ejercito’s post. “Sen. JV, pasensya na pero hindi kami interesado sa tattoo mo. Interesado kami sa tattoo ni Polong. Relax ka na lang muna dyan,” Trillanes said in his official Twitter account.
(Sen. JV, I’m so sorry we are not interested in your tattoo. We are interested in the tattoo of Polong [Paolo Duterte]. Just stay stay cool!)
Ejercito’s reply: “Sen. Sonny Trillanes, chillax lang pre! Pinost ko yung tattoo ko para magpalamig konti sa mainit at tensyonadong sitwasyon!” (Sen. Sonny Trillanes, chillax [a play of the words chill and relax] brother! I posted my tattoo just to “douse cold water” on the seemingly tension-filled situation!)d relax.)
Ejercito added: “Tattoo ang gusto makita ng isa kung kasama, ito sa akin di na aalis! (Is it tattoo one of my colleagues wants to see, here’s mine, it cannot be removed) Does this make me a Magdalo? Hindi po (No it’s not), Magdiwang po!” he said in the caption.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, “Almost all Filipinos said that tattoo can’t be used as evidence against Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte that would prove the presidential son’s link with a Chinese triad. Trillanes himself wanted to humiliate the younger Duterte, but he could not do so.”
After the said investigation about the alleged corruption in the Bureau of Customs (BOC) and shipment of illegal drugs, a lot of dragon tattoos appeared on social media, criticizing Trillanes for making false accusations against the brother and husband of Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte.
