Obama Congratulates Bongbong Marcos via Phone

potus_phoneMANILA, Philippines — The White House confirmed today that United States President Barack Obama personally congratulated vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos through a phone call.

“President Obama wanted to applaud Senator Marcos on doing a bang-up job enticing voters to vote for him in the recently concluded elections,” the White House said in a statement.

The White House added that Obama wanted to know how the son of a former dictator was able to erase 9 years of atrocities under his father’s regime from the minds of Filipinos voters, noting that massive corruption and human rights violations are memories that should be pretty hard to temporarily forget, let alone permanently.

“Who knew that infrastructures such as the Cultural Center Philippines, Manila Film Center and the Folk Arts Theater were enough to make up for the billions their family has amassed while in power,” the White House said, adding that Bongbong’s failure to acknowledge or denounce his father’s crimes should’ve been the final nail in the coffin for his vice presidential dreams, but here they are offering their praise.

“Sure he is in second place right now, but damn those memes and revisionism sure worked wonders for those thirteen million plus voters, huh?” Obama was quoted as saying after hanging up the phone, adding that people who believed that Bongbong was an innocent child during the martial law years were definitely hilarious if not depressing.

“A simple Google image search of ‘Bongbong martial law’ would debunk that misconception right away,” he said. “I mean, come on! This is the same ‘innocent kid’ who was pushing his father to bomb the living shit out of Camp Crame during their final days in Malacañang.”

He added, “Filipinos should not take everything they read on the Internet as gospel truth because as easy as it is to read and believe a meme, the easier it is for them to check its accuracy.”

Although nobody has been proclaimed vice president yet, Obama wanted to personally congratulate Bongbong Marcos for showing the world that there are still thirteen million plus voters who would rather bring the scion of a family responsible for one of the Philippines’ darker years, a heartbeat away from being the most powerful person in the country.

    • Ferdinand E. Marcos was the ”Best” President before Noy Aquino(2nd place in my opinion);the late President improved the Filipinos way of life:Farmers were given land from the rich people;the Land Reform;the Miracle Rice Science Project,Schools,Transportation, Electricity,Water,Dams,Roads were all done from the Northern most part to the South.And Imelda Marcos’ shoes and Filipiniana Couture were all given to her by Filipino Cotouriers for her to wear ,so,people from all over the world,during their Diplomatic visits knows,how the Filipina woman carries herself in her native gowns.She was in the cover of Life Magazine”The Most Fabulous Lady in Asia” in 1972.Suddenly,the PHL was on the ”Map” of the World.!!!_In the ”3rd” World,corruption is almost a bloodline;I believed;Marcos’ wants to Stop it at the time;many ,did not like or hated his idea;”if you don’t get the enemy” are you offering yourself in the guillotine?…!!!

    • Paano di masra Pres. marcos sinadya talagang siraan, para maagaw ang power, o ano ngayon nganga kong hindi pa sa ofw, matagal nang lubog ang Pinas. mga books palang ng mga school student naka prent na ang paninira. kaya yun sira talaga.. pero di nila kaya ang talino ni marcos at adhikain sa Bayan.

    • We dont have any idea of Kathang isep…you are totally blind and idiot to your knowledge….I’m a martial baby , and I know the differences between marcos and aquino’s government. ..Cory’s government greed and selfish people..we don’t value added tax on that time of marcos, but when Cory aquino sat as a president we began to be a lower class people..even you are a farmers in the philippines but you have a huge of hectares of land you will not become a poor person. We experienced yo become a lower class because of Cory’s givernment..if remembered they mentioned that the they are good government and total reconciliation, but deep inside there is no reconciliation. ..

  5. I FEEL SO SAD FOR THIS AUTHOR’S LIFE. SEEMS LIKE HE HAS NOTHING GOING ON IN HIS LIFE LATELY. A JOKE FOR A JOB.
