Bongbong claims in a media forum that the UPLB event on Marcos wealth is a “political action.” Its mastermind is someone who has a “political agenda.” “Someone spent a lot of money on it. There are planners and meetings to organize that,” Marcos added. “Who malign the Marcoses? Who in the past, I don’t know how many years? They have done nothing but destroy the Marcoses” When he refuses to name names, a reporter asks if that may have something to do with the Aquinos. Marcos replied that the family might have a hand in the event.

A Classic Fake News
Marcos warns the people earlier of “unscrupulous individuals.” They use the Marcos family for personal interests. An investigation is ongoing on who is behind it. The scheme attracts thousands of subscribers across the nation. The gathering at UPLB is organized by the so-called One Social Family Credit Cooperative. He added that this is an example of a classic fake news. That is a clear political move.
Martial Law Abuses and Ill-Gotten Wealth
Marcos said; We’re used to fake news. My family suffers from them for 30 years. The former Senator is the only son and namesake of the late Ferdinand Marcos. The great leader was accused of Martial Law abuses and ill-gotten wealth. He was never tried in a proper court. His widow, Ilocos Norte 2nd District Representative Imelda Marcos, and their children maintain their innocence.
Reaction from the Aquino Camp
Lawyer Abigail Valte, spokesperson of former President Benigno Aquino II reacted: “Apologies to Bongbong Marcos that we cannot jive into his fantasy to entertain his accusations.” Valte said that if Bongbong really wants to protect his father’s “legacy,” he should condemn those that fooled the people. ” Which he did if she is cautious enough to look behind her shoulders.
It cannot be denied that the battle between the pro and anti-administration stalwarts is on a red light. All these coincide with the VP recount. That is about to happen in November. The Aquinos had their time for two long terms in the presidency. Their blocking Bongbong Marcos who has the President’s support cause all the chaos. Now that their terms are over, there’s no way that this administration would give in to their manipulation. They can use the media all they want but people can only retaliate through social media. Time to fight back, Filipinos!
