Sucking up for 2019? Roque praises ‘babaeng bakla’ Imee for Ilocos reforms

Mar 9, 2018 @ 20:15

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque appears to be collecting allies already in preparation for his rumored 2019 senatorial bid.

Roque was all praises for Ilocos Norte governor Imee Marcos in his interview with United States-based blogger Maharlika Friday (March 9), touting the various reforms she instituted in the province.

“Isipin mo na magkakaroon ang kakulangan nag Ilocos, pero napaka-progresibo ng Ilocos, diyan nagsimula iyong mga windmill as an alternative source of energy. Diyan iyong napauso iyong mga cruise liners na naging dahilan kung bakit napakataas ng tourist arrivals sa Ilocos,” he said.

In addition, Roque said Marcos pioneered the offer of ferrying tourists for free from the airport to their hotels.

Asked about Marcos’ reported plan to run for senator, Roque said the governor was “a sure bet.”

“At alam mo si Governor Imee, sa ayaw mo at sa gusto mo, eh magiging kaibigan mo, kasi down to earth, ang tawag nga namin sa kaniya ang babaeng bakla, pag ako kasama siya, walang tigil ang aking tawa, puro talaga kasiyahan kapag kasama mo si Imee,” he said.
