Day 4: Dictator’s day of humiliation

By
A MYTH THIS IS NOT  The Philippines had two presidents for about nine hours exactly 28 years ago today (Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014). Corazon Aquino (left) is sworn in at 10:46 a.m. as the country’s 11th President by then Justice Claudio Teehankee at Club Filipino in San Juan, a short distance from Edsa. About two hours later, Ferdinand Marcos addresses his supporters from a balcony in Malacañang after taking his oath of office, claiming that he won the snap presidential election. But at 9:05 p.m., Marcos leaves the Palace on a helicopter. The rest is history. COMPOSITE PHOTO BY JOHNNY VILLENA AND MR & MS PHOTO

There was something surreal about the last day of Ferdinand E. Marcos’ 20-year rule. The economy in shambles, his government in total collapse, much of the Armed Forces in mutiny, his palace in disarray and abandoned by most of his Cabinet, Marcos cut a pathetic figure that Tuesday 28 years ago today.
