Sara, Bongbong discuss how HNP can help his 2022 presidential bid

Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Sunday she discussed with former Senator Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos, Jr. during a meeting in Cebu how her regional party can help his presidential bid next year.

Anyari bakit lalo dumadami ang possitive puro na pala vaccinated,pera pera lng taga ngayon kya c digong bilyonaryo na bago matapos sa posisyon Ako nga June pa nag.register hanggang ngayon wla pang turn ko sa pagvavaccine... Pa utot ka pa.. tulungan mo gobyerno vp ka na maka bili nang bakuna... wag dakdak leni robredo.. Ginagamit mo pa ang DOH na vaccine express mo, samantala kahit isang pirasong bakuna wala kang na procure.. Hindi ka nahiya sa sarili mo?

vaccine preference issue. a main one at that. May mga dilawang ayaw ngang magpa vaccine kalerkey. Nagsalita ang magaling sa math… True. Still waiting for my vaccination schedule. Slow? Or walang tao sa vax sites. Been pasing through 2 to 3 vax sites every weekend. People are not getting shots. Mismong front liner na nag sasabi at nag tatanung sino pa hindi natuturukan

Akala siguro nito yung mga vaccine pwedeng ipa Grab o Shopee. Or pwedeng ilagay lang sa kahon at ipadeliver. VP lenirobredo knows better kasi hands-on siya, haven't you seen her kung paano nila minamanage ang kakaramput na budget nila. She deserves to be the president at this coming election. More noise maybe that will improve her chances in the coming election. Goodluck!

Allies mourn death of Dinky Soliman: ‘Rest now in your little patch of sunflowers’Friends and allies of the late former social welfare secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman took to social media to grieve her passing on Sunday, September 19.

there is an interval of 21 days or 4 weeks for the next dose. .... She has a lot to say noh? Election period na talaga. Nakakaumay, paano ka gaganahan bumoto... Vice, there are 2nd doses that needs to be stored in time to be jab based on different dose intervals Why does she always act as if she’s not part of the national government? 🤨

baka sinasadya para umabot sa campaign period, gawin pang campaign propaganda!!! This statement of Leni is stupid on so many levels. It is not funny to hear Leni talk about vaccination levels by dividing the number of vaccines by 2. Then say we should have 30 million fully vaccinated already. Seriously may utak ba talaga si Leni. It's a disaster with Leni

What really is her job description? 🥸 May matanda na namang mapipikon bukas o busy pa sya kay dick? 🤪 Should be? They dont know? The only quick action this admin can make is to rob the people's money - stealing taxpayers money lightning fast.

5 things you may not know about VP LeniVice President Leni Robredo may be a public official, but she’s a very private person. Not interested. Ahaha yung everyday ka nagpapa presscon pero she is a very provate person.,.ahahahahha.,.next yeah...much better practice it forever as a private person..

VP Leni shows modest, ‘very comfortable’ home to publicIn a rare opportunity, Robredo let the public glimpse her a little more than 100 square-meter condominium unit. Her home indeed looks very comfortable. Small yet aesthetically and practically designed. One cannot say it is pretentiously made to look as a “front” to someone in higher office. It was just really, simply, Leni. 💛❤️💛❤️ Hayz!!! I really hope she runs for president....I remember my mom with how she is now....simple, humble and not attached to the trappings of power..... I hope Filipinos will see her sincerity and dedication for not attaching into too much power. VP LENI will really be an excellent president for her genuine simplicity to lead the country into a better and honest government. Humble yet brave. She is not trapo.
