MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rodrigo Roa Duterte has not yet been in office for a full 100 days but already, the campaign for the 2022 Philippine presidential elections has begun.
The leading candidate? Teddy Boy Locsin — journalist, former congressman and newly-appointed Philippine ambassador to the United Nations.
Locsin surely knows the winning formula to become president: be as foul-mouthed as Duterte. Or better.
Locsin first became controversial when he despised his own national language, Tagalog, as a useless language. Everything went downhill (or is it uphill) from there.
“If it worked for President Duterte, I’m sure it would, too, for me. I found the perfect strategy to become the next president,” Locsin told The Adobo Chronicles.
