First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos did not mince words in expressing her disappointment at Vice President Sara Duterte, saying the latter crossed the line for laughing at insinuations that the President is a drug user.

“Bad shot na yan sa akin (She’s a bad shot to me),” Mrs. Marcos said in a teaser video of her interview with “TUNE in kay Tunying.”

“Nasaktan ako (I was hurt) because my husband will do everything to protect you… You ran together right? (You said) we will rise together again.”

“Pupunta ka sa rally, tatawagin yung presidente mong bangag, ‘di ba, you’re going to laugh, tama ba yan? (But you will go to a rally where they called your President a drug user, right? You’re going to laugh – is that the proper thing to do?) Even Leni (Robredo) never did that,” she added.

Earlier, Sara’s father, former President Rodrigo Duterte, accused Mr. Marcos of using illegal drugs in a rally in their hometown Davao City, while her brother, Davao City Mayor Sebastian Duterte, called on the President to resign.

In February, the Vice President said all is well between her and President Marcos, but declined to comment on the status of her ties with the First Lady.

“We have no problem with each other. President Bongbong Marcos and I are doing good. We are okay in terms of our relationship,” she told reporters during her official visit to Kuala Lumpur in February.

As for her relationship with the First Lady, Duterte said then: “I have no comment as of this time.”

Mrs. Marcos appeared to have given Duterte the cold shoulder during the departure honors for the President for his state visit to Vietnam in late January. The moment was captured on video and the clip went viral online.
