DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao City Bureau) – Never mind the supposedly misogynistic comment about women not fit for the Presidency, but do you believe Rodrigo Duterte when he says his daughter Sara is not running to succeed him in 2022?

Sara Duterte Misquoted!

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Davao Bureau) – Is she running for President in 2022, or is she not?

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte was recently quoted as saying that she told her President father (PRRD) that she does not intend to run and that the older Duterte told her he, too, did not want her to run.

We wanted to get to the bottom of all this, so we went directly to the source. Sara said she was misquoted, so we took it upon ourselves to issue an erratum. Apologies to ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) for our intrusion.
