Queen of All Media Kris Aquino surprised members of the press in an interview last October 11 by defending His Excellency Rodrigo Duterte.
In an article posted by PEP, she said, "This will be a controversial statement, but I'll make it anyway. I know what it's like na every move you make, napipintasan ka.
"I know what it's like sa pinagdaanan ng brother ko, that for a certain segment ng population, walang tama.
"Pero ngayon, nananahimik siya, 'di ba? So, I'll take my cue from that."
It is known that former President Noynoy Aquino and his family were all-out in their support for former senator Mar Roxas, who went against President Duterte in the previous elections.
Kris has nonetheless insisted that she supports the incumbent chief executive - in spite of their political differences.
"If my brother is respectful enough to want to give this administration a chance to succeed, why won't I do the same?" she said.
The award-winning TV host added, "Siyempre there will be missteps. Hindi naman lahat kakampi mo. Pero ako, gusto ko [siya] na mag-succeed."
Kris reiterated that her brother respects President Duterte's leadership.
