Senator Trillanes To Sue BBC For Devastating Interview With Stephen Sackur

IMG_2340MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippines Senator Antonio Trillanes says he going to file a lawsuit against British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for a recent interview he had with Stephen Sackur of ‘Hardtalk.’

During that live interview, a video of which has now gone viral across the globe, Sackur pulverized every comment and response Trillanes made regarding questions about the Philippines and President Rodrigo Duterte.

The wide-ranging interview covered topics from Martial Law, to Coups to Crystal Meth (which Trillanes seemed to have mistaken to be marijuana.)

“BBC is nothing but fake news,” Trillanes said, “and they must have been paid by Duterte supporters to have me insulted over and over by Sackur.”

Since Trillanes cannot sue Sackur because the latter is not a Filipino citizen, the senator says he will fly to The Hague to file his complaint before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

When asked by The Adobo Chronicles what his basis was for suing BBC and Sackur, he replied, “Crimes against my humanity.”

Anderson Cooper Breaks Up With Kathy Griffin

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – Starting in 2017, there will be no more New Year’s Day kisses between CNN’s Anderson Cooper and comedian Kathy Griffin.

The two have been the most watched couple on television leading up to the New Year’s Eve dropping of the ball in New York’s Times Square.

Cooper, who is openly gay, has never denied any platonic relationship with Griffin who many describe as a “fag hag.”  And who can blame Griffin when she is partnered with the dashing Cooper?

But like everything else, things must come to an end.

After that controversial and disgusting photo of Griffin holding a bloodied and beheaded Donald Trump, Cooper decided to call it quits with the in-your-face comedian.

Already, speculation is at fever-pitch on who Anderson will kiss at the strike of midnight on December 31, 2017.

Could it be Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnel or Roseanne Barr?

May we suggest Trevor Noah?

It’s Official: Kris Aquino Announces First Major Hollywood Film Project

IMG_1925.PNGQUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Many weeks ago, retired talk show host and former presidential sister Kris Aquino hinted on her social media page that she has signed up for a major Hollywood film, which many thought would be ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’

But when the cast of the film project was announced, nowhere was Aquino’s named on it.

Then, in subsequent tweets, Aquino said she is working on a Hollywood film but was not at liberty to reveal the details.

Finally, Aquino announced the much-awaited film project, “Darna Versus Wonder Woman.”  She plays Darna while Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman.

The film is based on fictional superheroine characters in the Philippines and the U.S., respectively.

“Naku ha, I’m super excited about being cast in this monumental film and proud to be the first Filipina to land a leading role in a Hollywood film.  Our time has come,” Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles.

Asked how her new Hollywood career would affect her reported plans to run for mayor of Quezon City, Aquino said, “Puwede namang sabay di ba? Look at Ronald Reagan and Arnold Swarseneger.  Did I spell his name right?”

The film is scheduled to open in the U.S. and the Philippines over the Labor Day Weekend this September.
