Blogger Raissa Robles Apologizes To The Marcoses For Her Book ‘Never Again’

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – After all, people are willing to give peace a chance.

Today, Special Assistant to the President (SAP) Bong Go apologized to Kris Aquino for PCOO Asec Mocha Uson’s post on Aquino’s dad, showing a video of two women kissing the Senator.  It was Uson’s way of getting back at President Duterte’s critics who condemned him kissing a married Filipina in South Korea.

Not to be outdone, blogger Raissa Robles apologized to the Marcos family for her book, ‘Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.’
