PNoy Nega sa Public

Is the handling of the homecoming of the 44 fallen Special Action Force (SAF) police officers by PNoy (President Noynoy Aquino) the start of his immense popularity’s decline? His attending instead an event in a Mitsubishi car plant instead of the homecoming honors for the fallen officers in Villamor Air Base largely earned flak and the hashtag #NasaanAngPangulo (Where is the President?) trended worldwide on Twitter.

As a belated gesture and surely taking cue from the negative outpouring towards him, the media savvy President attended today’s necrological services for the fallen SAF police officers. But his presence also spawn some comment, particularly from veteran broadcast journalist Tony Calvento who said:

P’noy finally arrives. He is wearing an arm band.
Nung una YELLOW kulay niyan.
Binulungan ni Mar Roxas kaya nagpalit ng itim. (PNoy was wearing a yellow arm band but was prevailed upon by Mar Roxas to wear a black one.

Meanwhile, PNoy’s sister, Kris Aquino and her newly-reconciled friend Aiai Delas Alas, Diether Ocampo attended the wake of the fallen heroes last night.
