On Her 91st Birthday, Imelda Marcos Feted With New Name For Manila International Airport

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A recent Philippine Congressional proposal to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) has been met with mixed reaction from the Filipinos.

While many agree that the name change is long overdue, others have criticized the proposed new name — a mouthful and tongue-twister, “Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Pilipinas.” “It should just revert to its original name of ‘Manila International Airport,’ “ they say.

To end the controversy once and for all, President Rodrigo Duterte issued an Executive Order renaming NAIA to “Imelda R. Marcos International Airport.” It is effective July 2, the 91st birthday of the former Philippine First Lady.

End of story. No “IFs or Buts.”

Survey About Richard Heydarian’s Survey: Duterte or Robredo ?

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Analyst extraordinaire Richard Heydarian surveyed his gullible fans on who they think would do a better job in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis in the Philippines. Lo and behold, Leni Robredo came up on top with more than three-fourths of the vote. President Rodrigo Duterte was a distant 3rd, behind Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

But as we always say, there’s two sides to  every story, especially one that comes from Heydarian and his Yellow minions.

So in the interest of fairness and accuracy, The Adobo Chronicles is conducting its own HYPERthetical poll on who, really, Filipinos would prefer to be in charge during the pandemic.

Donald Trump Outlaws K-pop, TikTok In The U.S.

TULSA, Oklahoma  (The Adobo Chronicles, Tulsa Bureau) – President Donald Trump was confident he could fill the 19,000-capacity venue of his Tulsa political rally today. That did not happen. Not only was the venue just about half full, but the planned overflow outside was all but scratched.

So what happened?

K-pop fans, along with TikTok users, apparently sabotaged the rally at the BOK Center.

Political commentators deduced that K-pop fans as well as TikTok users had mobilized to reserve tickets to the rally with no intention of going.

Upon being informed of what happened, Trump immediately issued an Executive Order banning from the Internet in the U.S. anything that’s related to both K-pop and TikTok.

”That should give them a lesson,” the President said, “for being bad, very bad people.”

It wasn’t clear how The White House would see through the implementation of the order.
