Now that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest is already set in motion, the President is obviously under attack. First, his health is questioned. Next, his political clan is under fire. Is the LP worried that should anything bad happens to him, his choice of successor takes over?

[VIDEO]: A Palace official has released photos to dispel doubts that arose over the President’s health after he dropped out of public view since Monday. Du30’s prolonged rest period has prompted calls for Malacañang to give regular updates on the president’s health.
It is quite normal for a 72-year-old man to get over fatigue after a series of not having enough sleep due to his personal attendance during the wake of the soldiers killed in the Marawi clash. Nevertheless, his political enemies particularly the Liberal Party members are still hesitant to find out the real score about his health.
The LP media comes up again with another controversy. That the president was a creature of the political clan. He allegedly consolidated his power as mayor, replicated what his family and other political families did. He is accused to ensure that his children inherit the post to secure the clan’s monopoly of local power.
They also proceed to destroy his popularity saying that it is not unique. It was prototypical of Philippine local politics, according to the yellow media. Their assumption that Du30 nationalizes the local “way of doing politics,” with coercive features, vulgar argot and other macho behaviors is just too much. A person’s personality cannot be faked. Can’t it be possible that the president is just charismatic enough?
Another Charismatic Figure
If the President is charismatic, how much more, Bongbong Marcos? Better yet, he’s younger and also good-looking. He can capture the new generation with his wit and charming personality. One very big mistake that the LP can do is to drag Marcos’ reputation as they try to pull down President Du30. People will just hate them for that.
