Mrs. Serrano also said that they love the President and Duterte is their inspiration to fight their depression.

Sa pagmamahal di lang sa aming mga naiwang mga maybahay..alam ko sa buong sambayanan din.. Please naman.. Imbes magtulungan tayo.. Lalo nating pinapalala ang situation…nalalabanan namin ang depression dahil sa ramdam naming di kami pinapabayaan ng pangulo… Nagsusumamo kami,, wag niyo po paniwalaan lahat ng binabalita dahil ung iba iniiba ang istorya… Puwera na lang po sa matitino.. Please stop using us… If it’s not for the good of the country…wag na lang po kaung lumapit sa amin.

Pro-Duterte blogger Krizette Laureta Chu also shared the post of Mrs. Serrano on her Facebook page, asking Jeff Canoy for his response on the complaint of the Marawi widow:

One of the widows of our fallen soldiers in Marawi is complaining that media has misrepresented their answers.

Ligaya says they love the President and support him, and yet when one of them were interviewed by Jeff Canoy (what station is he affiliated with?), the story was twisted.

For those who don’t believe how shitty some mainstream media members can be, read this.
The widows say sometimes the only thing that stops them from having depression is the thought that the President loves them.

Tapos istre stress niyo Ng ganito? MAKONSENSYA NAMAN KAYO.
