Former Senator Bongbong Marcos, a known supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, apparently did not issue a public greeting to the President on his birthday last March 28.
In Duterte’s previous birthdays, it can be remembered that Marcos even published video greetings for the President that are posted on his social media pages and personal YouTube Channel.
But a quick check on Marcos’ social media accounts and YouTube showed he has not published anything related to Duterte’s birthday this year.
Curiously, Bongbong’s sister Senator Imee Marcos have also been issuing remarks critical of the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Duterte has long-regarded the powerful Marcos clan as his ally. Imee ran and won as Senator in 2019 under the regional party of Duterte’s daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio.
