MANILA, Philippines — Outgoing Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday said that if incoming Sen. Imee Marcos was insinuating he was a bad person, she was showing too much hypocrisy.

“If the religious ritual is meant to help her fulfill her mandate as a newly elected Senator, then that’s a good thing,” Trillanes said in a statement. “But if she’s saying it to insinuate na masama akong tao, then sobrang ka-ipokritohan naman yun, even for a Marcos.”

Trillanes made the remark after Marcos said she was planning to do a ritual at her new office, which was used by Trillanes during his term.

Trillanes is a staunch critic of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Siguro magpapatawag ako ng mga Igorot namin, dahil kailangan basbasan ‘yung office ko. Kay Senator Trillanes yata ang nabunot eh,” Marcos said in an interview with reporters during the orientation for neophyte senators.

[I might call some Igorots, because the office will have to be blessed. I think I got Senator Trillanes’ office.]
