Duterte flirts with lovely SolGen abogado: Kung sakaling ma-biyuda ka, pwede mo ako isipin?
President Rodrigo Duterte has the hots for a pretty and brainy member of Solicitor General Jose Calida’s team.
In a speech in Malabon City, Duterte was captivated by Athalia Briones-Liong who caught his eye during the groundbreaking ceremony of the new site of the San Lorenzo Ruiz hospital in Malabon City.
“Ma’am, bastos ito tingnan. Ayaw ng mga babae. Iyang mga women’s ano, ayaw nila sa akin. Alam mo, bastos daw talaga ako. Pero naman ma’am, hindi naman siguro masama kung sabihin ko sa iyo na — kung sakali, kung sakali lang. Kung sakali, ma-biyuda ka, pwede mo akong isipin?” said Duterte who elicited laughter from the crowd.
Duterte swore Calida’s staff member was a looker. “Hindi naman kayo malapit dito so hindi niyo malaman gaano kaganda.
Maganda siya. At kung dapat may — may reserba. Eh kung ‘yung sakyan na ano truck may reserba, tao pa kaya?” he added.
“Your name is Attorney Athalia Liong and you work in the Office of the Solicitor General? Your name is here…Maganda rin siya. Hindi lang ninyo makita,” said Duterte.
The 31-year old Briones-Liong, a law graduate of Andres Bonifacio College (ABC) in Dipolog City, placed third in the 2016 Bar examinations. She has three daughters. She was among the six 2016 Bar topnotchers who were recruited by Calida in June 2017.
Duterte continued teasing with Briones-Liong in the latter part of his speech.
“Ah, Atty Liong… Office of the… Wala akong… ‘Di bale kasi may asawa ka na. Gusto ko sana ‘yung maski cellphone na lang,” said Duterte t the delight of the crowd. But Duterte was quick to say that he was only having fun with her. “Ma’am, biro lang ‘yan, sabihin mo sa asawa mo ha. Ah ‘yang media nasanay na ‘yan sila sa akin,” he said.
“Matanda na po ako. Hanggang tingin na lang ako sa mga… I mean tapos na ako eh. Tapos na ako. Naabot ko na ‘yung pinakamataas na posisyon, namahal ko ‘yung magagandang babae sa mundong ito,” he added.
