REALIZING HOW BIG a liability she could be, Kris Aquino promised to leave the country if Noynoy bags the presidency. “.. I promised Noy that if he does win and I’m a cause of stress for him and his presidency, I’ll gladly take my two boys and live anywhere,” showbizlandia’s Queen of All Media said during the campaign.
Given Aquino’s landslide victory, it is time to make good that promise, a number of Facebook users, growing in thousands each day, demand. I’ll help you pack your things, offered a young girl from Pasuquin. A teenager from Batac, for his part, offered to lend a hand in the despedida party.
And this is not without reason. Even before his brother is officially proclaimed, Kris is already causing division when unity is the order of the day. On national TV, she keeps on making snide remarks about provinces that did not go for Noynoy, and promises projects for districts that delivered the votes. So trapo, trapo, trapo, the opposite of the good governance mantra of his brother’s campaign.
Goodbye, Kris, and good riddance.
