“Babangon Muli” but can’t get up for a Zoom call? Bongbong Marcos’ campaign slogan slammed by netizens

Despite producing a medical certificate, Marcos failed to attend via Zoom due to “not feeling well,” said his legal counsel

Presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. caused a delay in the Commission on Elections’ preliminary conference on disqualification cases against him on Friday.

Instead of starting at the scheduled 9 am, the proceedings commenced at around 10:30 am. Commissioner Rowena Guanzon had to wait for Marcos’ camp to produce a medical certificate before the discussion streamed live on Facebook.

“Hearing cannot begin, we are waiting for the medical certificate of Marcos Jr. to prove he is not well, hence he is absent,” she wrote in a tweet.

Despite producing a medical certificate, Marcos failed to attend via Zoom due to “not feeling well,” said his legal counsel.

His camp said Marcos was exposed to a staff who tested positive for COVID-19.

Based on the written statement, Marcos is suffering from a swollen throat.

However, Guanzon didn’t see this as an excuse for why he couldn’t join through a videoconference.

“But why can’t he be on Zoom?” Guanzon asked. “I want to see him because he has no medical certificate,” the commissioner said.

Netizens then questioned Marcos’ stamina to lead the country.

Not the biggest Marcos fan, Kerwin King finds it funny that the presidential aspirant’s slogan is all about rising again, but he couldn’t get up for Zoom call.

Two days before the preliminary conference, Marcos attended a virtual meet-and-greet with his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Marcos lawyer Hanna Barcena said the camp is only worried about one issue: if the Comelec can determine whether the former senator is qualified to run for the presidency.


Barcena also refuted the stipulation that Marcos had not paid deficiency income taxes and subsequently fines. She said the payment was “made a long time ago.”
