QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Rappler is reporting that Vice President Leni Robredo is not interested in running for President in 2022 to serve the Filipino people.
Rather she said what would push her to file her candidacy for President is to feed her ego.
Robredo said she’ll run for President if she would be the ”unity candidate” of all opposition to President Rodrigo Duterte and his anointed ones, or if her nemesis, former Senator Bongbong Marcos will run for the top position in the land.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The Ateneo Martial Law Museum has called out actress and television host Toni Gonzaga for her recent interview with Bongbong Marcos which went viral.
In an open letter published on Wednesday, the museum said “Gonzaga’s show has contributed to the whitewashing and downplaying of the atrocities during the dictatorship of Bongbong’s late father, tyrant Ferdinand Marcos. “
To prove that the museum was not unjustly zeroing in on Gonzaga, it also issued a strong post-mortem statement criticizing Kris Aquino for her 1995 TV interview with then Senator Marcos.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was apparently an attempt to portray potential Presidential candidate Manny Pacquiao as an ordinary citizen, eating with his hands just like many Filipinos do. But the PR stunt backfired, with netizens making fun of the way he did it — practically sucking his fingers as he gobbled his chicken and rice..
Today, the Boxer-Senator responded to the criticism, saying he was eating a side dish of snails — known in the Filipino dialect as kuhol, suso or bisukol — which requires the eater to suck the meat out of the shell, as can be seen in the controversial photo.
This should end all memes and negative comments against Pacquiao.
