The late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago is noted for saying; I thought Filipinos already learned but the truth is, not yet because of their choices after the election. If you listen carefully to her interview with ANC, she is implying how it would be under Bongbong Marcos’ presidency.

[VIDEO]: Watch the insights and wisdom of a dying senator who’s wisdom was fully exposed without fear.
Marcos vs Robredo
Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago before her death has compared Bongbong Marcos with Vice President Leni Robredo. She said that while Robredo is into humanitarian functions, Bongbong Marcos will focus on gathering powers and exercise them. She explains that this is the job of the president to effectively serve the people. Come up with reforms, make sure they are supported by the laws and implement fully for the public to take advantage of.
Marcos a Laughing Stock?
The world has many big problems to worry about and they are not concerned with the internal events of a tiny country that not many heard of.
Platforms not the Name
The late senator ran as the Presidential candidate while Bongbong Marcos was her Vice Presidential running mate because when Marcos assumes the presidency, the country will be in good hands because of his political platforms and not because of the Marcos label.
Santiago wanted Bongbong Marcos to be President
The good senator knows that she was dying during the interview but it did not stop her to run during the last election to hopefully install Marcos as president. It could have been easier if they both won the race. Now that she’s dead, Marcos could now be the new President.
