Sara Duterte on Wednesday told the Filipinos not to listen to his father when he interprets the Bible or Quran.

Please do not listen to him interpret the Bible or Quran. He is not a priest, a pastor or an imam. He is the President. Listen only when he speaks about his work,” Sara said.

She also slams  “#babae ako” hashtag that were used by Rights groups and some netizen on social media to protest and criticize Duterte’s remarks against women.

By admitting that she was the favorite child of the President and being a woman, that “#babaeako campaign is doomed,” she said.

"What he doesn’t like lies not in the gender, but in the character," she added.

1) This is the first time I will say it out loud and I hate to admit it because I love my two brothers too much but yes I am the favorite child, so that #babaeako campaign is doomed. What he doesn’t like lies not in the gender, but in the character, he has no respect for weakness. And many women and some men are known to be damsels in distress, that #babaeako included. 2) Please do not listen to him interpret the bible or quoran, he is not a priest, a pastor or an imam. He is the President, listen only when he speaks about his work. And criticize him on his work not on his “talkkalese”  🤣 🤣 🤣 Do not waste your negative energy on his interpretation of the bible, that is his opinion. He is protected by the Constitutional right to freedom of speech and expression even if he is President. #indaysaraduterte
