WASHINGTOND.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Joe Biden did not waste much time in calling Philippines’ President-elect Bongbong Marcos to congratulate him on his impressive majority win. Biden is the first head of state to call Marcos.
But Vice President and defeated candidate Leni Robredo was not left behind. American VP Kamala Harris also called her minutes after the Biden-Marcos call.
In a leaked transcript of the call, Harris offered Robredo her deepest condolences, telling the Philippine VP that ”as a woman and as VP myself, I feel you! I’m just luckier than you because I won the election and you didn’t. But I’m sure there will be other political opportunities for you once your party has re-grouped. It may take 12 or more years, but your time will come.”
Per the unofficial election results, Marcos beat Robredo for the presidency by a landslide.
NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Bongbong Marcos may have won the Philippine presidential race with an impressive majority vote of 31 million, but Vice President Leni Robredo has been proclaimed president of the northeastern United States.
As tallied by the Philippine Consulate in New York, Robredo garnered 7,750 votes compared to Marcos’ 5,796! The northeastern United States includes Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Upon hearing of the good news, the Office of the Vice President confirmed to The Adobo Chronicles that Robredo is now finalizing plans to self-exile to Boston, Massachusetts, to assume the presidency. Boston is the same city where the Aquinos self-exiled during the Marcos, Sr. presidency.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Elon Musk’s offer to buy Twitter for $41 Billion is sending jitters to many Filipinos who use the popular social media platform for their propaganda, false narratives and self-promotion.
Apparently, most of the concerned Twitterettes are politicians, celebrities and media with connections to the opposition and the pinklawan. These include:
Francis Baraan IV
…and many more.
One of their further concerns is that Musk may also try to buy Facebook, thereby totally cutting the pinklawan off their echo chambers.
