QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Hold the presses on impeachment! Vice President Leni Robredo has just announced that she is stepping down in order to spend more quantity time with her daughters.
The shocking announcement came just hours after Robredo concluded the first episode of her new weekly radio 📻 program which aired Sunday, Mother’s Day.
During the radio show, Robredo had this advice to Filipino working mothers:
‘Nothing will ever take the place of the time you spend with your children. Some working mothers I know would say that giving their children quality time is okay. But I tell them, no. Quality time is not okay. It should be quantity time, which means parents should spend all the time they could with their children.”
Many working mothers, grandmothers and single parents took to social media to denounce Robredo’s statement and were planning to organize a “Million Mom March Vs. Robredo” at the Luneta sometime next week.
To prove that she was sincere in her advice to mothers, and to avert any civil unrest as a result of her comments, Robredo said she has decided to immediately step down from her position.
The 1987 Philippine Constitution gives the incumbent President the power to choose who will replace the Vice President. Who will it be ?
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Now it can be revealed, straight from the horse’s mouth: Sarah Palin actually voted for Hillary Clinton in last year’s U.S. presidential election.
“Gender affinity sometimes eclipses political or party ideology,” the former Alaska governor told The Adobo Chronicles, following her visit with Donald Trump at The White House.
“I failed in my bid to become the first woman Vice President,” she said, “but I was hoping that Hillary could be the face of women power in America by being the first woman President.”
Palin was so elated for having been invited to The White House, but not necessarily to meet with Trump, but to have her photo taken in front of Hillary’s portrait.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Whenever one hears the name Manny Pacquiao, boxing always comes to mind. Like a fist fight. And that’s exactly the challenge hurled at the boxer-turned-senator by a Philippine transgender congresswoman.
Geraldine Roman of the first district of Bataan and the first transgender legislator in the Philippines, told The Adobo Chronicles today that she is willing to engage Pacquiao in a fist fight to settle once and for all the senator’s Bible assertion that women should dress like women, and men like men.
Pacquiao made the statement during deliberations on Senate Bill 1271 that seeks to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression (SOGIE).
The senator also said that crossdressing can lead to “fraud” and subsequently to murder, apparently in reference to transgender woman Jennifer Laude who was killed by US Marine Pfc. Joseph Scott Pemberton in 2014. Pemberton said he choked Laude to death after learning that the person he brought back to his hotel room was a transgender woman.
“I expect Pacquiao to be man enough to accept this challenge from a woman — fist to fist, with no bible in hand,” Roman said.
