President Rodrigo Duterte is technically the most powerful person in the Philippines these days, considering that he is the country’s president but when it comes to his family, he’s still their Tatay. He’s not president at home but an ordinary dad – and even in public events, it seems that this is also the case!

Last week, during a trip to China, his youngest daughter, Veronica “Kitty” Duterte, had some fun taking a selfie with her ‘tiny’ president dad who had no idea that she was taking the hilarious snapshot.
The playful selfie quickly went viral on social media, garnering over 18k likes within just a week after Kitty posted it on her Instagram account.
But the post also attracted negative comments from the president’s detractors. Even while Kitty was just having a great time, several people commented on serious issues such as the supposed extra-judicial killings happening in the Philippines.
Many defended the young girl, saying that the fun post of a young girl should not be turned into something political and dark by people who do not agree with what her father is doing as president of the country.
Do you agree?
