His statement earned mixed reactions from the netizens.
Based on the latest partial and unofficial tally election returns from Commission on Election (COMELEC), transparency servers, Marcos Jr. got 31, 084, 349 votes. Meanwhile, his rival, Vice President Leni Robredo has 14,822,051 votes.
Mo Twister or Mohan Gumatay is a known critic of the Duterte administration and of the Marcoses.
In April 2022, Twister chided Marcos Jr. for not attending presidential debates. He said that Marcos Jr. might not be attending presidential debates because he’s never been to a job interview.
The SMNI presidential debate on February 15 was the only presidential debate attended by Marcos Jr. along with Ka Leody de Guzman and other presidentiables, excluding Lacson, Pacquiao, Domagoso, and Robredo.
He previously retweeted a video clip that showed Marcos being asked by a reporter if he can be a “good president” if he can’t attend debates.
