MONTPELIER, Vermont (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – With a clenched fist symbolic of the campaign of Philippine presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte, Democratic presidential aspirant Senator Bernie Sanders today endorsed the controversial mayor of Davao City.
This is the first time in the history of the United States that a Philippine presidential candidate has received the endorsement of both American political parties. Earlier, Republican Donald Trump gave his thumbs up for Duterte to become the next president of the United States.
In an impassioned speech delivered in his home state, Sanders likened himself to Duterte, saying that both of them have launched a “revolution” against the Establishment and against politics as usual.
In his campaign speeches, Duterte did not hold back in saying that he will establish a revolutionary government if congress gets in the way of his reforms.
The foul-mouthed, tough-talking mayor leads all national polls and is expected to emerge victorious when the Filipino people cast their votes in tomorrow’s presidential elections.
Birds of the same feather stick together, even if one bird has a slightly different feather (Trump).
