MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo in connection with the 2016 Vice Presidential elections has remained in limbo for several years now.
Today, the Supreme Court of the Philippines, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has finally declared Robredo the whiner in the contest.
Despite the matter considered sub judice, where parties in a case pending in court are prohibited from publicly discussing related issues, the Robredo camp has been vocal in criticizing Marcos for his persistent attempts to assert his legal rights.
As a matter of fact, the Robredo camp just this week called Marcos a “spoiled brat” for once again pushing a Supreme Court (SC) justice to inhibit from the electoral protest he filed against Robredo.
In an en banc resolution, the PET admonished Robredo to stop whining and let the case proceed accordingly.
WASHINGTON D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – After weeks of claiming he won the November 3 U.S. Presidential elections, Donald Trump has finally conceited. Not that he wasn’t before.
Trump has fired his own key officials, tried to summon state elections officials who belong to the Republican party, promises to avail of his presidential pardon as he did with a couple of turkeys on Thanksgiving, held 60-second press conferences and refused to answer questions from news reporters. He has also laid claim to the most recent stock surge on Wall Street.
He has contested all the election results in key states through his surrogate Rudy Giuliani. When he is not holed out in his quarters at The White House, he has made several trips to hoes on the golf course, while pondering on all the Presidential powers he can muster to bring down the winner Joe Biden, the U.S. government, and the American people.
He has probably refused to take calls from world leaders, as if any of them would.
As he often likes to say, “No President in U.S. history has ever done…” these. Ever.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Leni Robredo’s Facebook account has been suspended for 30 days by Facebook Philippines. This after repeated violations of Facebook’s community standards which prohibit vulgarity.
The suspension came after news media statements by the Vice President which were posted and re-posted on social media. Those statements included sexual innuendo-inspired phrases like “well-oiled” and “sinusubo” (felatio).
So if you don’t see any FB posts by the Office of the Vice President for the next 30 days, you know why.
