WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Not since the likes of John Ensign, Bobby Scott and Steve Austria have Filipino Americans been represented in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. But all that changed yesterday during the siege on Capitol Hill staged by pro-Trump supporters.
Many Filipinos noted with pride their country’s representation in the insurrection, highlighted by a walis tambo (soft broom) that’s as essential a household cleaning item as the tabo (bathroom dipper/pitcher). The above photo of the protester inside the Capitol instantly went trending.
Indeed Filipinos have come of age in the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!
