MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Following a Rappler fact check on its website belying claims that Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. (Bongbong) has returned to Malacañang, it now appears that Vice President Leni Robredo is the one who has returned to the Palace.
Senator and gentleman-in-waiting extraordinaire Bong Go released a photo showing Robredo walking with the President inside Malacañang. It was Go’s way of proving that Duterte is alive and healthy, contrary to recent speculation.
It wasn’t clear why Robredo paid a visit to Duterte. Sources close to the Palace said the President is considering re-appointing the VP to his Cabinet, possibly as the Overall Czar for the country’s war against Covid-19. This would be Robredo’s third appointment as a Cab member.
