sen. imee marcos claim that bbm is an addict


MANILA, Philippines — “Nakakaloka!”

This was Senator Imee Marcos’ initial reaction to former president Rodrigo Duterte’s allegation thather brother — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. is a drug addict.


Veering away from the topic, the senator said it’s no longer her concern.


“Naku hindi ako kasali doon. Bahala na sila doon, kayang kaya na nila ‘yun. Nakakaloka, ‘yun lang ang masasabi ko,” the senator told reporters in an ambush interview on Tuesday.

(I am not involved there. Let them be, they can handle that themselves. It’s driving me crazy, that’s all I can say.)

Former president Duterte earlier called Marcos “bangag” or a drug user.

President Marcos, on the other hand, did not let the former chief executive get away with his allegations.

In return, Marcos said fentanyl — an addictive pain killer — is now affecting  Duterte’s health.

Prior the controversy, Senator Marcos expressed her loyalty to Duterte, saying that she would continue to support the former president “…even if I am the only one left.”
