06 Nov Bong Bong Answers: The Telenovela on Grace Poe’s Real Identity
JUAN SAYS: From the news yesterday, we already know that Grace Poe’s DNA turned out negative to matching with supposed blood relatives from Iloilo. Rumors have been circulating that Grace is, in fact the daughter of Susan Roces’ sister, Rosemarie Sonora by the former President Ferdinand Marcos. During yesterday’s “Kapihan Sa Senado,” Senator Marcos candidly answered speculations on the what ifs of Senator Poe’s biological lineage. What if Poe is really a Marcos? What if Bong Bong and Grace are siblings? Here are Senator Marcos’ replies.
Q: Sir, initial batch ng DNA test ni Senator Poe, nag-negative o hindi nagmatched. Baka gusto niyo daw tumulong sa paghahanap ng relatives ni Senator Poe?
Senator Marcos (SBBM): Sure. Pa-DNA ako. Walang problema.
Q: Are you serious Sir?
SBBM: I don’t see how that will help her but if it will, why not?
Q: So, willing ka Sir magpa-DNA test?
(JUAN SAYS: Ang kulit. Nag-OO na diba?!)
SBBM: Wala naman. Anong makikita sa DNA test? Anak ako ng tatay ko at saka ng nanay ko.
Q: Sir, paano kung lumitaw na half-sister kayo ni Senator Poe? Sasabihin niyo ba sa kanya?
SBBM: Welcome to the family.
(JUAN SAYS: This makes us think of that stupid song we heard during PTA meetings in grade school. haha)
Q: Sir, tatanungin niyo ba si Senator Poe, alin ang mas matimbang, half-brother o kaibigan? Kasi pareho kayong Vice-Presidential candidate ni Senator Chiz.
SBBM: Nasa sa kanya na iyun. Hindi ko masasagot iyun para sa kanya. You’ll have to ask her about that.
(JUAN SAYS: Kung matapang ang tagatanong, paki tanong na si Senator Poe NOW NA!)
Q: Hindi ninyo sasabihin sa kanya na blood is thicker than water?
SBBM: Baka. Kung nagkataon. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
JUAN SAYS: Let’s do the DNA testing ASAP and see if the speculations are true. And if it were, would blood be thicker than water? Abangan ang susunod na kabanata.
