Netizen says viral photo of “Chel Diokno chasing a taxi” taken from LP playbook, drum up support for Chel Diokno for President movement?

The joke on social media these days is that if you aspire for the presidency or the vice presidency, ride the MRT or the bus, post your candid photo on social media, tada! You’ll the next VP of the country like Leni.

This is the classic LP playbook.

However, after the humiliating defeat of LP’s senatorial slate in the 2019 midterm election known as “OtsoDiretso”, LP knows they need new face, in preparation for the 2022 election.

And what a coincidence when netizen Eric Oebanda, a self-confessed supporter of Chel Diokno in the just concluded election, posted the photo of the defeated senatorial bet running after a taxi cab and voila, the awestruck Oebanda suddenly feels Diokno is the country’s next President.

Oebanda’s post went viral, generating as much as 100K shares and thousands of reactions on Facebook.

For reason we can only speculate, Oebanda deleted the FB post.

Pro-Duterte supporter Jefry Tupas refused to buy Eric Oebanda’s story.

In a Facebook post, Tupas accused Oebanda and Diokno of conniving to pull off the stunt.

Tupas recalled the stunt reminded him of Leni Robredo’s “waiting for a bus ride” photo before she ran for VP.

Tupas called the viral photo of Oebanda “bullshit”.

Ganda ng kwento ni Eric Oebanda. Makikipag-agawan daw sana sya kay Chel Diokno sa taxi pero wag na daw — si Chel na lang, matanda na kasi.

Parang random encounter diba?

Segue sya doon sa pangungunsensya — “palagi tayong naghahabap ng lider na matalino, may tunay na malasakit, simple at may mababang kalooban. Pero sinayang natin ang pagkakataon na pwede sana manungkulan ang katulad niya. Sayang!”

Umabot na nga siya doon sa “baka ang kapalaran ng mamang ito ay maging Pangulo.”

Ngayon, ganito yan. Hindi na ako mag-conclude ng kung anu-ano pa.

Kasi lumalabas na hindi random ang encounter ni Eric at Chel. Parang may mali. Parang stage. Parang Leni Robredo waiting for the bus to the province ang drama.

Kasi parang magkakilala naman pala sila. At nasa iisang circle sila.

Parang may honesty issue sa post na ito, eh.

Kung hindi drawing ang post ni Eric Oebanda, isa itong total bullshit — na totoo naman sa mga drawing-drawing na staged emote na mga ganyan ganyan.

Tingnan nyo na lang.

PS

Sana mag-move on na nga tayo ng tuluyan. At. Oo nga pala, sinusulat ko ito habang lakas ng tugtog sa utak ko ng kantang — Bakakok ka, liar, evil kaaaa…bakakon kaaaaaa…liar, evil, kaaaaaa….
