Just as when the Presidential Electoral Tribunal ordered the camps of Vice President Leni Robredo and former Senator Bongbong” Marcos to refrain from discussing their respective poll protests in public in a gag order, Marcos publishes his 4th video series. It contains his recent appearance at the Caloocan University. Apparently, he was not the one that the crowd expects to see. The truth comes out during the Q and A portion when a lady from the audience pops the very serious question. Where is Sandro?

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos visits the University of Caloocan City for a talk on Millenials and Federalism. The first question on the Q & A was really unexpected.
Gag Order on VP Electoral Protest
The tribunal issued the order last February 13, as it called on both parties to observe the sub judice rule in light of the impending start of the recount of votes. The sub judice rule prohibits public discussion of cases pending before the courts.
Charisma and Humor
With charisma and humor, Marcos always empowers the youth. He addresses the Millennials and acknowledges them as the Majority Demographic of the Philippines today. If the Millenials could act together, they have the power to elect any official in any position, he said. Despite the failures of the system, Bongbong Marcos still urges the youth to be involved to make the politics of today better., he added
Since both camps cannot give interviews anymore to clarify their actions as far as the protest is concerned, the best way o deal with the issue thrown at the Marcoses is to publish this icebreaker. This tells the people that their choice will always excel not only in this generation but also in the next.
Still a Marcos in the Limelight
Joseph Simon, Ferdinand Alexander, and William Vincent all have the bearing and intellect of a Marcos. Ferdinand Alexander “Sandro” Marcos, 23, recently finished his graduate studies at the prestigious London School of Economics and Political Science. He accompanies his father often in public appearances. In fact, Sandro often substitutes the older Marcos during his absence in speaking engagements. The millennial crowds welcome this with glee and affection because of his wit and good looks. Sandro is always the darling of the crowd wherever he goes.
The President defends his relationship with the Marcos family. He clarifies that it isn’t a political alliance but simply friendship. Du30 also addressed those who have been calling on him to “prosecute” and “punish” the Marcoses for alleged human rights abuses during Martial Law. The only adults then were Imelda and Ferdinand. Imee and Bongbong were young. Solon Edcel Lagman disputes the President. However, Imee Marcos denies that Du30’s hand is on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo.

Imee and Bongbong Marcos were 17 and 15, respectively, when Martial Law was declared in 1972. They were young adults by the time their father’s term ended, but not in the position to do something about it. “They attained the age of majority shortly after the proclamation of Martial Law, and they were already adults during the height of the Martial Law regime,” said Lagman. Lagman is bitter because his brother was among the thousands of “desaparecidos” who disappeared without a trace during those years. They blamed his disappearance to the late President Marcos.
The President was a long-time Davao City mayor. He is quite open about his ties with the Marcos clan. The President approved the hero’s burial for the late President Marcos. He jokingly said that Marcos’ eldest daughter, Imee, was among his campaign donors but insists that the decision is lawful. The Ilocos Norte governor downplays Du30’s claims.
The President’s Battle
As the President battles the Ombudsman and the Supreme Court Chief Justice, the election protest of Marcos goes quiet. The appointees of the former President Noynoy Aquino retaliate to his accusations of corruption against them by demanding to disclose his bank accounts. He responds by saying that he is ready to step down with them if anyone can find even a dollar on such Singapore bank account in question that he allegedly owns.
Hand on the Electoral Protest
Gov. Imee Marcos, meanwhile, said that she cannot feel that the President’s hand is on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest. The process remains slow even if many think that it’s the faster ever protest of its kind. The governor has high regard for Du30 as a leader who adheres to the constitution. He may prefer Bongbong Marcos to be his heir to the presidency when he steps down. However, it can only be done through lawful means.
