Presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos Jr. attended an exclusive interview with host Korina Sanchez the same day that he skipped the Kapisanan ng Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) forum today with other candidates.
Vic Rodriguez, the spokesperson of Marcos Jr., earlier insisted that they could not disclose their schedule.
But when photos of Marcos with Sanchez surfaced online, Rodriguez said, “That’s just one of the many activities we have in full schedule.”
While labor leader Leody de Guzman, Manila Mayor Isko Moreno, Sens. Ping Lacson and Manny Pacquiao, and VP Leni Robredo, are laying out their platforms, Marcos Jr. was seen cooking pakbet and bagnet with Korina Sanchez.
Marcos’ camp had earlier said that the candidate had a ‘conflict of schedule’ so he could not attend the KBP forum.
Meanwhile, Korina Sanchez shared in an Instagram post on Friday that Marcos’ camp was the one who pushed for the said schedule.
“To be clear: When we invited BBM it was his team who chose the time and date. We had no choice,” Sanchez said.
The veteran broadcaster-host also shared some sample questions that she asked to Marcos Jr:
“You may swear to the 1987 constitution if you win, a departure from your father’s 1973 Constitution. Mag charter change ka ba?
Bongbong Marcos attends interview, cooks with Korina Sanchez
Are you a dictator?
Will your wife Lisa be anything like Imelda Marcos?
Was history revised because of your trolls?
How much like your father’s presidency will your presidency be if you win?
Are you disqualifiable? Handa ka na kapag nanalo ka posible parin you are disqualified and Sara Duterte assumes presidency?
More than one Marcos in government. Will you support anti-dynasty bills?
Drugs. Do you do drugs? What will be your policy on drugs and on corruption?”
The husband of Korina Sanchez, Mar Roxas, is the cousin of Marcos’ wife, Louise Araneta.
Bongbong Marcos stirred controversy last month after rejecting the interview with another veteran journalist Jessica Soho because “the hostess of said popular talk show is biased against the Marcoses.”
