MANILA, Philippines (Exclusive to The Adobo Chronicles ) – Special Assistant to the President Bong Go was the hot topic on social media this week after he apologized to entertainment personality Kris Aquino for Mocha Uson’s post featuring a video of Ninoy Aquino being kissed by two women.
Go was widely criticized even by supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte for easily and quickly giving in to Aquino’s cry for help. Many of them even said they will not be voting for Go should he decide to run for Senator in 2019.
The Adobo Chronicles spoke to Go for comment on the raging controversy. This is what he told us:
”It was all political strategy that had the blessing of the President. It’s all about having name recognition in preparation for my Senate run. You see, unlike Kris, I’m a virtual unknown. By apologizing to Kris, I became the subject of news headlines and debate on social media. Now, people know me and they will remember the name Bong Go when they go to the election precints in 2019.”
Now, we know. Go, Bong!
