Worried About A Low Turnout At His Inauguration, Donald Trump Gives Away Free Trips To D.C.

img_7576WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Not only is President-elect Donald Trump worried about the lack of A-1 performers, he is also afraid there will be a low turnout at his January 20 inauguration.

The last thing he would like to see happen is for more people to join the Million Women March scheduled in D.C. the day after his swearing-in ceremony.

To remedy the situation, Trump is giving away free trips to D.C. to all his supporters who would chip in at least $3, as seen in this email message below.

To increase your chances for a free trip, go to Trump’s Twitter page, retweet one his posts and add the phrase, “Free Trip.”


Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista Flies To Bicol To Help Typhoon Victims

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo, fresh from her vacation in the United States, visited the victims of a residential fire along NIA Road in Quezon City yesterday for a much-needed photo oppportunity.  The Office of the Vice President boasted that she had come to the fire scene directly from the airport.

At the same time, Robredo announced she will be coordinating efforts to help the fire victims and allow them to stay put in the burned neighborhood.

Her statement directly contradicts that of Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista who said  it is best to relocate victims to a safer, less accident-prone area.  Bautista also noted that the creekside neighborhood is a breeding ground for dengue and tetanus.

Reacting to Robredo’s visit and statement, Bautista asked,  “How will she be able to coordinate the housing needs of the victims when she had already resigned her cabinet position as housing czar?  And what motivated her to visit the Quezon City fire victims instead of the typhoon victims rendered homeless in her own city of Naga in the Bicol region?”

“If that’s the case, I will fly to Bicol to personally help the typhoon victims since Robredo doesn’t seem to care about them,” Bautista added.

Bautista for VP and Housing Secretary.  Robredo for Quezon City Mayor!

Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo, who is from Bicol, flew to the United States to set up relief operations for the typhoon victims.

It wasn’t clear whether Robredo will be meeting with Loida Nicolas-Lewis to ask for relief funds from the FilAm millionaire for the typhoon victims. Nicolas-Lewis had previously urged Rodrigo Duterte to resign so that Robredo can take over as president.
