RANCHO MIRAGE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The decades-old political rivalry between the Aquinos and the Marcoses has turned personal. And hairy.
In a recent media interview while attending the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) summit hosted by President Barack Obama at Sunnyland in Rancho Mirage, Philippine President NoyNoy Aquino took a swipe at Vice presidential candidate and Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., saying that the 58-year-old namesake of the late dictator dyes his grey hair.
Aquino’s thinning hair has also been the subject of ridicule in his home country, earning him the nickname panot, Tagalog word for balding.
Marcos was gracious in his response, thanking the president for noticing his hair in spite if the many serious problems the country faces.
The senator did admit he dyes his hair to avoid getting in deep trouble with the women in his life — his wife and, of course his mother Imelda. “They don’t want me to look old,” he said.
CHAPPAQUA, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – Hillary Clinton returned to her home state of New York a changed woman, after that huge loss to Bernie Sanders in this week’s New Hampshire Democratic primary. Sanders defeated the more veteran Clinton, 64.8% to 30%.
On the Republican side, Donald Trump led the pack at 35.3%, 15 points ahead of second placer John Kasich.
Clinton’s campaign advisers finally figured out what’s ticking and clicking in the tight race for president of the United States: white hair.
Clinton’s first stop upon arrival in Chappaqua was her hairdresser’s studio where she followed her advisers’suggestion to match Sanders’ hair color.
Trump is reportedly considering doing the same. He’s not only tired of hearing those nasty jokes about his hair but, like Clinton, wants to be a better match for Sanders.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – When she concluded her closing statement during the last Democratic Presidential Debate earlier this month, Hillary Clinton wished the American voters: ‘May the Force be with you!”
Pandering to the millions of Star Wars fans, Clinton may just have found the magic bullet to clinch her party’s nomination.
There could not have been a more perfect timing for her remarks. It came as the latest Star Wars film opened in theaters nationwide.
Riding on the momentum that won over millions of voters, the Clinton campaign just released a new official photo of the former Secretary of State, wearing a new hair style that mimics that of Star Wars’ Princess Leia.
The ‘new look’ all but pits Clinton with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whose hair style has been the subject of jokes and ridicule.
We all look forward to a hair-raising political campaign for the general elections between Trump and Clinton.
