Nancy Binay pokes fun at her father
MANILA, Philippines – Senator Nancy Binay poked fun at her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay, saying that while there’s no longer a chance that he could have a fair skin, there’s a chance that he could still get darker in 2016.
The Vice President has publicly expressed his intention to run for president in 2016.
Her father’s skin color cropped up while the senator was having chitchat with some reporters in the Senate about the ongoing investigation by the chamber into the alleged overpriced Makati City Hall 2 parking building.
She said she had not yet talked to his father since the latter came back from Bukidnon.
When a reporter commented in jest that he might get burned in Bukidnon, the senator said: “Ay sanay naman sya. Sabagay may iitim pa yun dahil noong 2010 nangitim pa sya.”
“Pumuti na yan, may iitim pa by 2016,” she said of her 71-year-old father.
Asked if the Vice President as using any whitening products, the senator said: “Ay hindi wala nang ipuputi yun. May iitim, pero wala nang ipuputi yun.”
She said her father though is using an anti-aging treatment called “Obagi.”
Nancy Binay argues what ‘world-class’ means
