Kris Aquino has a message to Senatorial candidate Mar Roxas’ campaign manager Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice after the latter blamed the ‘yellow’ brand of Liberal Party for his boss’ defeat in the last presidential elections.
“It was a conscious decision [to change colors] because one mistake [Roxas] made in 2016 was acting like Robin to [Aquino’s] Batman … and Robin will never be Batman,” Erice told the Inquirer.
Kris felt it was necessary to break her self-imposed hiatus on social media to defend her brother and her family’s yellow pride and legacy.
“But really- to blame his loss on my brother? So pati ba pagkatalo sa 2010 kasalanan din ni Noy? Hindi kami okay ni Noy, pero KADUGO ko sya, nagkalayo man kami, pakitaan sya ng hindi ko masikmurang kawalan ng respeto, when he chose loyalty to that man over forgiving me, dahil DISENTE sya at tatahimik- you will read our TRUTH,” said Kris on Instagram.
She also remembered her mom, former President Cory Aquino who according to her, taught them to avoid seeking continuous political power.
“Mom’s greatest lesson given to us… President Duterte was who the majority chose through the democratic right to vote that our parents gave their lives to fight for… Hindi tayo yung pino-portray, we are not power hungry, we are not sore losers- dahil pinalaki tayo na alam- PAHIRAM lang ang panahon sa Malacañang,” said Kris in another post.
Erice and Roxas are not yet giving any response to Kris Aquino’s statement against him.
The Roxas and the Aquinos are known to be a close political ally.
