Robin Padilla endorses Bong Go for president

The 2022 elections are still far away but actor Robin Padilla already has a presidential bet in mind.

Robin has endorsed a potential presidential bid of his friend Senator Bong Go in his latest Facebook post.

He said Go is ready to take the driver’s seat from President Duterte. The President’s former assistant has been on the “passenger’s seat” for quite some time while Duterte rendered public service.

“Wala akong nakikitang papalit sa pagiging driver ng sasakyan ni mayor prrd kundi ang kasama na niyang nasa passenger seat ng 21 taon/years,” Robin wrote on Facebook.

“Tumanda na sa pagmamalasakit at pag seserbisyo si senator bong go,” he said.

Robin also said Go is not a politiko but a public servant. The lawmaker learned such a brand of service from Duterte, he added.

The President floated a presidential bid of his long-time aide while they were visiting Cagayan de Oro City last week. Go has not announced any plan to seek a higher public post in next year’s polls.

While he admitted that his government was “not perfect,” President Rodrigo Duterte said he’s never stolen public funds.

“The government isn’t perfect. I’m not perfect either. Faults? Me? Plenty. But I don’t steal money,” Duterte said in a speech delivered in Cagayan de Oro City Friday.

He also acknowledged that extrajudicial killings occurred under his drug crackdown.

“I only have cases about extrajudicial killings. Ah, we’ll get there. I’m just trying to preserve my country. I don’t need to be lectured by anyone,” the President said.

Duterte likewise reiterated that he would dedicate his remaining years of his term fighting the war against illegal drugs and government corruption.

“That’s my job. I’m getting older by the day. So what should I do then? Work. And what is my job? To implement the law,” he added.

The politiko gene: Will Sandro Marcos run for political office?

This politiko scion could just one day rule his hometown.

Sandro Marcos seemed to be spending more time in his home province of Ilocos Norte, triggering rumors he might run for local office next year. The British-educated Sandro is the eldest of three sons of former Senator Bongbong Marcos and lawyer Liza Marcos.

In recent weeks, Sandro has been spotted mingling with residents, extending assistance to those in need, and even distributing face masks and other protective gear in the province. The young, smart and charismatic lad often wore a red polo shirt, the known political color of the Marcos family.

When he celebrated his 27th birthday, Sandro chose to spend his special day with the Ilocos residents. He took to Instagram to express his joy on his birthday and posted photos of his hometown visit.

“Can’t think of anything better than giving back to my home province on my birthday weekend ✌🏾” Sandro wrote on Instagram.

He is also grateful for people who made his birthday extra special. “Thank you to all of those who were kind enough to spend time with me throughout the weekend! As I told them, they are truly the reason as to why this weekend has filled me with joy and meaning!” he said.

In the event he joins the world of politics, Sandro is backed up by a strong educational background. He holds a master’s degree in Development Studies from the London School of Economics and Political Science. He currently works as assistant of his uncle House Majority Leader Martin Romualdez.

Sandro also has a political pedigree as the Marcos family kept its hold on power in Ilocos Norte.

His grandparents are late President Ferdinand Marcos and former First Lady and Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos. Sandro’s dad is a former senator, who is rumored to run for higher public office next year.

His aunt is Senator Imee Marcos, a former governor of Ilocos Norte. Sandro’s cousin is Ilocos Norte Government Matthew Marcos Manotoc, son of Senator Imee.
