PACQUIAO snaps at Bongbong washing his hands off his dictator father’s cruel martial rule

He can’t say he did not know

Born in 1957, former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. was 15 years old when his father, the late dictator President Ferdinand Marcos Sr., declared martial law in 1972.

Bongbong also served as vice-governor of Ilocos Norte from 1981-1983 and governor of the same province until 1986 when his father was deposed in the four-day EDSA revolution. 

With these facts of history, presidential candidate Senator Manny Pacquiao on Friday, October 15, snapped at Bongbong, fellow presidential candidate, for saying that he did not know what was happening when his father was president.

Pacquiao dismissed claim by the son of the late dictator that he was too young to know what was going on during his father’s rule. 

“Alamin natin ang tunay na pagkatao ng isang tao, tunay na damdamin at saloobin na gustong magserbisyo ng bansa,” he said.
