Panelo didn’t experience real commuter struggle, netizens say
“It’s nothing but a stunt.”
This is how Filipinos online described Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo’s commute from his home in Marikina City to Malacañang on Friday morning, October 11.
After nearly 4 hours of commute and 4 vehicle transfers, Panelo arrived in Malacañang at 8:46 am – nearly an hour past the opening of government offices. He said he left his home – some 20 kilometers away from the Palace – at 5:15 am.
