It will be recalled that Kylie Verzosa posted a selfie with the president just days before winning Miss International 2016 in Japan. At the time, Duterte was in Tokyo for an official visit. In her social media page, Kylie said she had to run after the president to take that selfie. And, after winning Miss International 2016, many said Duterte must have been Kylie’s lucky charm.

Well, Kylie didn’t have to run after the president to take selfies with him this time. The new Miss International 2016 was a special guest at the Malacanang event and didn’t waste the opportunity to take selfies. Many selfies, in fact.

But, unlike her first selfie with Duterte in Japan, this latest photo with the president received mixed reactions. This politics came into the picture as those opposing Duterte, especially anti-Marcos sympathizers, took the opportunity to bash Kylie for her choice.
