MANILA, Philippines — Original Pinoy Music (OPM) singer-songwriter Jim Paredes compared former President Ferdinand Marcos and current President Rodrigo Duterte to a virus.

In his Twitter account, the APO Hiking Society member posted photos of the two presidents side-by-side, saying Marcos is the original virus while Duterte is the new variant.



Twitter users commented on Paredes’ post.

“More deadly variant,” @eenermind commented.

“Yong isa naagnas na, yong pangalawa buhay pa pero inaagnas na,” @annehazelly1 commented.

“Mas nakakatakot ang new mutation. Mukha talaga mutant haha,” @MackinleyZamora said.

Some, meanwhile, commented a photo of Sara Duterte, saying she is another variant.

“Another variant na dapat wag hayaang makapasok sa presidential race,” @titojeepp commented.

Paredes is known as a staunch supporter of Liberal Party and critic of the Duterte administration.
