MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Korina Sanchez, broadcast  journalist and wife of Interior and Local Governments Secretary Mar Roxas, is one step closer to becoming the First Lady of the Philippines. This, after President NoyNoy Aquino officially endorsed her husband as his choice for the next president.

Many will recall that during the height of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in 2013, Sanchez criticized CNN’s Anderson Cooper for his reporting on the government’s slow response to relief operations.  Sanchez said Cooper didn’t know what he was talking about. Cooper then challenged Sanchez to leave her airconditioned radio studio in Manila and travel to Tacloban to personally see what was happening at ground zero.

Apparently, Sanchez has not recovered from the embarrassment Cooper had caused her.

Speaking to reporters after her husband was proclaimed the presidential standard bearer for Aquino’s Liberal Party, Sanchez said that her first official act as Philippine First Lady would be to ask her husband to issue an executive order banning Cooper from entering the Philippines — as a CNN anchor or as a private tourist.

Sanchez said the executive order would designate Cooper as a “persona non grata” which is one of the grounds for denying a Philippine entry visa to any foreigner.

CNN  nor Cooper could not be reached for comment.
