Rappler senior reporter Pia Ranada speaks with political analysts Tony La Viña and Cleve Arguelles on the latest political twist – President Duterte vs Bongbong Marcos

Staunch opposers of a Marcos return to Malacañang may have found an unlikely ally in President Rodrigo Duterte.

The predictably unpredictable President turned his ire to the dictator’s son and namesake, calling him a “weak leader,” a “spoiled” child, and even accusing him of being a cocaine user.

What could be behind this latest political twist? Will the President’s anger be enough to dent Bongbong Marcos’ high voter preference rating? Who benefits from this quarrel?

Rappler senior reporter Pia Ranada speaks with political analysts Tony La Viña and Cleve Arguelles to answer these questions and more.
