Sharon Cuneta on President Rodrigo Duterte's video message: "All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my 'wala akong pakialam sa politika' stand, I got this precious gift of a message (taken a few evenings ago) from President Rodrigo Duterte himself!!! So sorry am not sorry but in fact, am thrilled!"


Last night, February 10, Sharon Cuneta set aside talk of politics, and posted on Instagram a video of President Rodrigo Duterte sending good wishes for her.

In his video message, the president said, “Ma'am Sharon, thank you for remembering me. I am your good friend and my daughter Sara, e, talagang ina-idolize ka hanggang ngayon.

“I am happy that she has chosen the right person to be an inspiration. She has been an avid admirer, supporter sa inyo.

“Ako rin, for the many things you have done for me and the family, I am grateful.

“May you live for a thousand years.”

SHARON'S "APOLITICAL" STAND. The Megastar, for her part, didn't hide her fondness for the president whom she referred to as "Tatay Digong."

In the caption of her post, Sharon pointed out that she has been good friends with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte for six years now.

“Wow. Thank you very much, Mr. President, Sir, my 'Tatay Digong'!!! 

"All politics aside and with all due respect to my husband who so understands my 'wala akong pakialam sa politika' stand, I got this precious gift of a message (taken a few evenings ago) from President Rodrigo Duterte himself!!!

"You may not know this but Davao City Mayor Sara and I have been friends since 2012. We never cared about each other’s politics, though I adore her as much as she, a 'Sharonian' as the President himself once said, must adore me too.

"I am blessed that she and I are sincere and thoughtful enough to separate politics from what after all is more lasting—our friendship.

“Now I have this message to treasure forever!"

Fact is, Sharon Cuneta's husband Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan is the president of Liberal Party and has been a staunch critic of the president's war on drugs.

But Sharon underlined that Senator Kiko respects her “wala akong pakialam sa politika” stand.

Still from her Instagram caption, Sharon continued, “ALL POLITICS ASIDE, Excuse me po, pero si Pangulong Duterte po ito! So sorry am not sorry but in fact, am thrilled!

“Maraming salamat po, Mr. President. Ang yabang ko po ngayon dahil dito! And one day, I shall sing your favorite 'IKAW' for you! God bless you po.

“May our Father in heaven guide you and lead you only to what will make our country great.

“(Thank you Kiko for your understanding and respect for me as your very apolitical/unpolitical wife.) Posting with permission.”

In his speech last September 2017, President Duterte mentioned that he owes a debt of gratitude to Senator Kiko for granting his daughter Sarah's wish to meet the Megastar many years ago.

President Duterte said, "Pangilinan is my friend at may utang na loob ako sa kanya. Si Inday, when she was Grade 6, Grade 5, sabi ko, ‘Anak, anong gusto mong birthday gift?’ Sabi niya, ‘gusto ko magkasama kami ni Sharon Cuneta.' I had to call Senator Pangilinan."
