by | News

A Facebook post went viral after a netizen pointed out that he might be riding a jeepney with President Rodrigo Duterte.

Facebook user Denzel Nestor Tingzon posted two photos of what may seem to be the tough-talking President riding in a jeepney.

In an online interview with The Filipino Times, Tingzon said he rode the jeepney in Quiapo to Sta. Mesa route and fell asleep for a while.

When he woke up, he was surprised to see someone who looks like Duterte.

“Naka idlip po ako sa jeep noong nakaraang Biyernes. Tapos pag gising ko biglang bumilis ‘yung tibok ng puso ko, akala ko si Pres. Duterte na ‘yung kasabay ko sa jeep,” Tingzon wrote in his Facebook post.

Upon taking a closer look, he noticed the Duterte lookalike was actually a woman.

“Pag gising ko na lang po, nandun na si lola. Opo, babae po. Akala ko ‘nung una lalaki rin,” Tingzon told TFT.

As of this posting, his Facebook post garnered more than 22,000 likes, 12,000 shares, and 7,000 comments.
