The Punisher and the Megastar has finally meet on Tuesday night.
In a photo uploaded by Special Assistant to the President Christopher ‘Bong’ Go, President Rodrigo Duterte and actress/singer Sharon Cuneta has been spotted while having a simple dinner.
Despite of being highest official, Duterte only chose to eat bread and sardines as part of his promise that his administration would maintain its simplicity.
Go also enjoyed the sardines in can while Sharon enjoyed her dessert.
Cuneta and Duterte shared some laughs and talked about several things.
The megastar admired President Duterte several times on social media while the latter praised Cuneta in some of his speeches.
She even expressed her happiness when President Rodrigo Duterte sent a video message for her and vowed that she would dedicate a song to his ‘Tatay Digong’ once they met.
Despite of being the wife of the fiercest critic of President Duterte, it doesn’t stop Cuneta from admiring the President.
“Everyone let’s aim for peace here. Doesn’t matter. We know they (Duterte and Pangilinan) are on opposing sides. But I appreciate the President’s respect for him, and me, and my friendship with Inday Sara which started long before anyone knew Pres. Duterte was going to run for his present position,”Cuneta said last year.
Davao City Mayor Inday-Sara Duterte is one of the biggest fan of the megastar and Duterte said that her daughter chose the right person to become her inspiration in life.
Ma’am Sharon, thank you for remembering me, I am your good friend. Yung daughter ko na si Sara (Mayor Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio) eh talagang ina-idolize ka hanggang ngayon.” President Duterte said in the video message.
“So I am happy that she chose the right person to become an inspiration, she has been an avid admirer, saka ako din, for the many things that you’ve done for me and to my family, I’m grateful. May you live for a thousand years.” he added.
Meanwhile, the fans of Cuneta and Duterte expressed their happiness after the two finally met.
