Militant anti-Aquino forces are responding to President Benigno Aquino’s call on supporters to wear yellow ribbons as the embattled President’s ratings dipped down amidst controversies.
And they are coming up with their own version of a yellow ribbon in a design sarcastically connoting dung.
Aquino made the call as a tsunami of negative public comments swirled around his defense of his use of the billion-peso Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) which has been declared as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.
Aquino made the call on Tuesday during his speech at the Daylight Dialogue at Malacañang’s Rizal Hall attended by World Bank president Jim Yong Kim.
Asked by the press after the dialog how he wished his supporters would express support to his administration, Aquino said he will ask his “bosses” to wear a yellow ribbon.
