Politically tone-deaf and/or opportunist?
By Raïssa Robles
I was reading a piece on the spike in Covid cases on the Philippine Daily Inquirer site when out popped a Google ad showing a smiling Karlo Nograles asking we, the people, to donate to a Palace-driven project to aid the poor. Nograles is the secretary to President Rodrigo Duterte’s cabinet.
So I posted this on Twitter:
Two things wrong with this pic: 1) Duterte’s secretary to the cabinet Karlo Nograles asking 4 donations when Palace has not released all Bayanihan ayuda; 2) Palace wants to centralize ALL PRIVATE DONATIONS after discouraging everyone from donating to various groups. #ManigasKayo pic.twitter.com/0T7VtidOKK
