MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Malacanang has finally broken its silence amid all the rumors and speculation arising from President Rodrigo Duterte’s health status and the unbearable pain he experienced while in Japan to attend the enthronement of Emperor Naruhito.
Photos of Duterte using a cane dominated mainstream as well as social media, prompting critics to demand that the Palace release a medical bulletin on the President.
Today, the Presidential Communications Coordinating Office (PCOO) released an unedited photo of Duterte while in Japan showing the alleged cane he was using to help him walk.
Lo and behold, it wasn’t a cane. It was a selfie stick!
Now we can all put the rumors and speculation to rest!
Congratulations, PCOO. You are finally doing your job.
