MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Unknown to many, Senator Antonio Trillanes was being groomed to head a new, 21st Century religious denomination called The Prophets of Doom. Its exclusive membership is reserved for individuals who can accurately predict political developments in the Philippines and around the world.
Trillanes’ most significant and talked about prophecy was that by the year’s end, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s approval rating will bottom out.
Well, it’s the end of the year, and unless one thinks that the Inquirer is a purveyor of fake news, the latest Social Weather Station (SWS) survey shows the President’s rating going the opposite direction, gaining a whopping 10 points in the last quarter.
The SWS survey all but killed Trillanes’ hope to head The Prophets of Doom. His reputation is permanently damaged, prompting him to resign from his Church.
Asked by The Adobo Chronicles what his plans are going forward, Trillanes said he is trying to join the staff of either Rappler or Inquirer, or try a broadcast career with ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol.
Best of luck to the Senator!
