Antonio Trillanes Calls Blogger Jover Laurio “Deceiver”

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau)  – Blood may be thicker than water, but being a godfather to someone’s wedding won’t prevent him from calling the goddaughter names — like deceiver.

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes, who was a “ninong” at Jover Laurio’s wedding has called the blogger (Pinoy Ako Blog) “manloloko.”

Trillanes was responding to a tweet by Laurio in which, in sarcasm, she congratulated the organizers of the 2019 South East Asian Games for winning an award as the “Best SEA Games Organizer,” allegedly given by the Sports industry Awards Asia (SPIA).

It turns out no such award was given.

Trillanes couldn’t hold back on his criticism of Laurio.  The two are closely identified with the political opposition — the Dilawan.

The Presidential daughter said the song does not represent the entire country. Nevermind that his dad swayed to the music as he waived his hand — a la Miss Universe — to greet the Filipino athletes.

We spoke via Skype to Sara and we asked her what song she thought would have been more appropriate.

She sent us this link for her song choice:
