MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau)- Detained Philippine Senator Leila de Lima has retracted a congratulatory message she sent to U.S. President-elect Joe Biden. Her letter called Biden “a beacon for our own democracy” while comparing Donald Trump to Rodrigo Duterte.
Sources close to the Senator have confirmed that she is writing a letter to President Trump instead.
The Adobo Chronicles obtained a leaked copy of de Lima’s new letter which reads, in part:
“I am extremely shocked and saddened that the recent Presidential election was stolen from you, but I am confident that you will remain a powerful force in American and world politics, just like Rodrigo Duterte will remain a powerful force in Philippine and Asian region politics, unfortunately.”
She ends her letter with:
“Please keep me in mind as you continue with your Presidential pardons in the remaining weeks of your lame duck Presidency.”
NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – As the entire country of America is in a somber mood because Thanksgiving cannot be celebrated in the same tradition citizens are used to due to the coronavirus pandemic, The New York Times heralded a surprise fact about President-elect Joe Biden.
In a headline story about a Thanksgiving message delivered by Biden to American, NYT revealed that the former Vice President is an alcoholic.
But the good news is, the Times reported that when Biden delivered his message, he was “sober.”
And all the while, Americans thought it was Donald Trump who is never sober.
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – It was supposed to be a night of celebration by the one big family Robredo, but the joy of having a new doctor in Tricia turned sour. Thanks to the wrong balloons.
The second family of all girls was celebrating Tricia’s passing of the Physician Licensure Exam by holding up huge balloons that was supposed to spell OVP ( Office of the Vice President) for that proverbial photo op. Alas, they held up balloons that spelled “OBF.”
Some netizen fans of mom Leni Robredo justified the photo posted on the VP’s Facebook page by interpreting the letters to mean “Office of tbe Bise Fresident,” but that was pushing it a bit too far.
Regardless, we wish to congratulate Tricia for a job well done! That was one big fight!
