Yup, the Marcoses are “back in style.”
Senator Imee Marcos said so herself when asked in an ANC Headstart interview on Tuesday, December 21, about her brother, Ferdinand Marcos Jr., currently leading pre-election surveys for the 2022 presidential race.
The Ilocano politiko claimed the Marcoses are supposedly out of fashion for years. This is despite members of the family successfully returning to Philippine politics even after the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution that ousted the patriarch, the dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
“Yes, it’s come as an enormous surprise. It’s a huge windfall,” said Imee about Marcos Jr’s survey frontrunner status.
“My brother has been working quietly all these years. But the truth is we’ve been out of fashion for such a long time. We’re surprised that we’re back in style,” she added.
