Like father, like daughter

DAVAO CITY—Like her father, Mayor Sara Duterte said Saturday her sense of humor is twisted.

“I have your twisted sense of humor and the drive to achieve and these are some of my useful tools as I navigate life,” Sara said as she issued an advance Father’s Day greeting to President Rodrigo Duterte.

Sara said her father, whom she calls “Digong” on social media, was “hard on me about education and work.”

“You impressed upon me that I am not a person if I am not a lawyer or a doctor and if I do not work for our country,” she said.

Sara, however, said she did not complain about the way her father treated her so she could finish her studies and also become a lawyer like him.

“And I am grateful for the rigidity. I would not be where I am now if I did not have you as a father and my Mama… Thank you. Happy Father’s Day!” she said in a statement released on Saturday.

Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide every third Sunday of June. The origin of the celebration of Father’s Day was not clear but some accounts said it was first celebrated in Washington on June 19, 1910.
