WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – President Donald Trump has fired his senior aide Kellyanne Conway for upstaging First Lady Melania during today’s presidential inauguration.

Inauguration day is usually focused on the First Lady and her wardrobe.

Being the fashion icon that she is, Melania, 46, wore an American designer Ralph Lauren baby blue cropped jacked with cowl neckline and matching dress.

But the outfit that attracted the most attention was the red hat with red, white and blue coat with brass buttons worn by Conway.The $3,600 double-breasted Gucci coat is reminiscent of the American Revolution era.

Angered and very displeased at the upstaging, Trump immediately fired Conway.

The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach Conway for comment but a call to her cell phone had a pre-recorded message: “All circuits are busy.”

At His Inauguration, U.S. President Donald Trump Forges New Ties With Philippines

IMG_8565.PNGWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – At his swearing (pun intended) today as the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump forged new ties with the Philippines without saying a single word.

All he did was raise his clenched first in the fashion that Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his supporters have been associated with.

Prior to today, Dutere has hinted about breaking away from his county’s cordial relations with the U.S. because of the latter’s criticism about the Philippine leader’s war on drugs.

All’s well that ends well

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Nothing is ordinary with President-Elect Donald Trump.  Not even with regards to his relationship with the news media.  He chooses whom he speaks to and has called news outlets like CNN “fake news.”

But we scored the first one-on-one interview with Trump on the eve of his inauguration as the 45th president of the United States.

AC: Congratulations, Mr. Trump

TRUMP: Call me Mr. President, or I’ll end this interview.

AC: Mr. President,  we heard that you wrote your own inaugural speech. Was that difficult for you to do?

TRUMP: Nah, all it took was 140 characters.

AC: How can you outline your vision for America in 140 characters?

TRUMP: I have four years, maybe even eight, to do it every day, 140 characters at a time.

AC: What can you say about the growing number of Congress people who will boycott your inauguration?

TRUMP: Let them. They’re losers. Big losers.

AC: Are you worried at all about the fate of your Cabinet appointees?

TRUMP: If they’re not confirmed, I will still keep them in my Cabinet and personally pay their salaries.  I’m rich, you know.

AC: Are you, as president, going to finally release your tax returns?

TRUMP: Only if Barack Obama releases his birth certificate.  The original.

AC: Who among the current world leaders do you admire most, and why?

TRUMP: Vladimir Putin, he’s a master hacker; and Rodrigo Duterte, he’s a genius and we speak the same language.

AC: You speak Tagalog, Mr. President?

TRUMP: No, but I sure know how to curse. Those son-of-a-bitches!

AC: Why did you choose Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” as the song for you and Melania’s inaugural dance?

TRUMP: Because I can, and because I do things MY WAY.

AC: Did you know that in the Philippines, people get killed just by singing that song in karaoke bars?

TRUMP: (calls the Secret Service) Book this guy. He just threatened the president!
