Initially the primary dissuader of any "Duterte for President" movement, Inday Sara on Wednesday (October 14) shared a couple of intriguing posts on Instagram:
Translation: I made myself bald while waiting for #Duterte 2016 #bald for change #NohairWecare
Even without money or the machinery, even if (he) loses #justDUit.
The series of posts came on the heels of Sara denying that she is the reason her Pa isn't running, in response to a Facebook user putting the blame on her.
While the mayor's daughter didn't specify which Duterte she was referring to in her posts—for she is also one—the part about the lack of money and machinery no doubt indicates a relatively larger campaign. (For president, perhaps?)
Is Inday finally giving her blessing to #Duterte2016?
Sure, the elder Duterte's chief-of-staff has already filed on his behalf yesterday (October 15) his Certificate of Candidacy for Davao City mayor; however, the Comelec has confirmed that he can still file another CoC, this time for president—cancelling the prior one.
Although we all know #Duterteserye ended up earlier this afternoon: The Punisher was nowhere to be found until 5 p.m., the deadline for the filing of CoCs.
Many had followed Sara's lead of going bald, particularly her father's supporters who flocked to Palacio del Gobernador in hopes of seeing the elusive mayor fulfill their ultimate wish.
This led us into thinking: What if Manong Rody's most prominent advocates, specifically celebrities, also had their heads shaven? Would the outcome have been different?

I was offered P2M to tweet for a presidential candidate. Di ko tinanggap kasi gusto ko suportahan si Duterte o si Miriam kahit walang bayad.— Alfonso Miranda Jr (@chitomirandajr) October 14, 2015
TEDDY LOCSIN, JR.
And what if we also include those who've had a memorable brush with him? (Click the celebrity's name for their Duterte story.)
All that (hair) "loss" went to waste, Mayor!
