Did Sandro Marcos just commit a faux pas?
Tiktok user @JanjansVlogs posted an excerpt of Marcos’ interview in the documentary “The Kingmaker,” where he apparently learned from his grandfather, the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr., that there’s money to earn from politics.
Sandro said his father, former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., initially wanted to pursue a career in physics, math, or biology. But the family patriarch stopped him.
“Cause you know, he wanted to do physics, math, biology. But my grandfather is like, ‘There is no money in that,’ so switch to politics,” Sandro said in the docu.
Ferdinand Marcos’ 21-year rule was marred by widespread corruption, killings, torture, and media oppression. He was ousted during the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution, but his family has since made their political comebacks.
Sandro Marcos is running for Ilocos Norte 1st District congressman in the 2022 elections.
