Siti Hasmah is the devil’s advocate

TTF: You know, every time I see Siti Hasmah tagging alongside Mahathir during his many campaign trails, it hits a spot in me that never fails to harvest sorrow. Seriously, folks, take a look at the picture (below) and see what I mean:

So motherly and frail looking she is, a part of me just wants to run up to her and and tell her that everything will be ok.  Then, almost instantly, that hallowed fellow in my conscience kicks in – he gives me a nudge, then says, “the devil isn’t going to walk right up to you in its true form if its intent is to deceive.”

And he’s right.

Make no mistake, folks – Siti is no angel. Her only concern has been and forever will be the welfare of her children, who, if you don’t already know, are chart-topping billionaires. But like Mahathir, she’s the grand maestro when it comes to shedding crocodile tears and appearing desolate, almost as if her sons are sitting by the streets of Chow Kit with metal tins begging for money.

Take it from me – I have friends who Siti confides stuff in.

These guys will tell you in a jiffy, that the former ‘First Lady’ admits her hubby is demonising Najib for the sake of Mukhriz. You may find this hard to believe, but she even told one of them that Najib did no wrong, that her only grouse with the Prime Minister was his failure to present her son with opportunity.

Yes, opportunity.

Despite Mukhriz being a “billionaire atas angin,” she appears to think that her son deserves more, that Najib ought to have helped stuff his (Mukhriz’s) money vaults with more of the green stuff. Now, take another good look at that sad face she’s putting on right up there – see what I see?


That, my friends, is the face of the devil.

KUALA LUMPUR: Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad made a mistake when addressing the crowd at a ceramah in the Kerinchi public housing project today, drawing the laughter of many with his apology.

He had been urging the crowd to vote for Pakatan Harapan (PH) candidates, when he accidentally said “vote Barisan Nasional candidates” in Malay.

He immediately laughed and apologised, saying sometimes he “kept remembering the old days”.

“I was the president of Umno. But now I am the one who wants the downfall of Umno,” said the PH chairman in a ceramah which drew thousands here.

“Because Umno is not Umno, struggles are not the same anymore. Now many that join ask what will they benefit from it,” he said.
