TAGBILARAN CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Bohol Bureau) – A video clip showing a cockroach landing on Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s shoulder has gone viral.
The bug popped up on Duterte as he was extolling the virtues of the candidates he has endorsed for next week’s midterm polls at a campaign rally late Wednesday.
Today, Malacañang confirmed the bugging incident, saying the cockroach was found to be an electronic bug traced to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
”The CIA tried but failed to spy on the President,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.
In this age of missiles and drones, it seems like the CIA is still resorting to old-fashioned bugging equipment.
