Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is unfazed by the negative feedback on his paid TV ad which highlights the weaknesses and bad image of presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

In his official statement today, May 6, Trillanes admitted that the use of minors in the anti-Duterte ad was intentional.

He said, “The truth definitely hurts.

“The children were purposely used to hammer the message that they should always be part of the consideration in our choice of leaders of the country not only because it is for their future but also because they will emulate these leaders.

“Besides, the children were shown in a positive light and all pertinent laws were strictly followed.”

Trillanes also slammed the “hypocrisy” of stalwart Duterte supporters who turned a blind eye against the mayor's cusses and rape jokes that were equally heard and seen by children in campaign sorties or videos circulating on the Internet.

“But wait, Dutertards are suddenly concerned about children?

“Yet they laugh every time Duterte cusses and jokes about his penis and rape not realizing that children are listening too?

“Such hypocrisy, right? Now, that's what the ad is all about too.”

While a lot of Duterte supporters are furious over the said political ad, other netizens claim that the ad merely conveyed actual speech of the mayor in various campaign sorties.
