Okay. Firstly, RIP PNoy, the last president we could be proud of. He was not the best and had many flaws but at least he was not an international embarassment compared to this administration. He achieved many things and this admin is just there for the ribbon cutting. #RIPPnoy 🎗 https://t.co/mdaKFBfWt2

Your administration has its shortcomings but the constant growth our economy had on your time was no joke. From sick man of Asia, to tiger economy. I will never forget those days that we had an actual yearly state of the nation address. RIP PNoy pic.twitter.com/FI3n7ck3wo

It is the day when he could finally talk to Cory and Ninoy again. And I bet, his mom and dad, icons of democracy, would be so proud of his honest leadership. They would hug it out the first few seconds and wish better presidents for the Philippines in the next moments. RIP PNOY pic.twitter.com/IChYtfC2UG
