• US TV’s ‘Madam Secretary’ irks Palace

    5

    Malacañang on Tuesday slammed a US television series for an episode showing a fictional Philippine President making sexual advances on the US Secretary of State.

    In the trailer for season 3, episode 15 of “Madam Secretary” titled “Break in Diplomacy,” the supposed Philippine president shows inappropriate behavior toward the female lead character, the US state secretary.

    The 20-second clip showed the top American diplomat punching the “Philippines’ unconventional new president.”

    “I clobbered a world leader instead of saving a major regional agreement,” the secretary of state says.

    “I think they are confusing their images,” Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said in a news conference.

    “I think they are projecting something that they really would like to say about their own situation. Really I think they should use a fictional US President,” he added.

    The Philippine embassy in Washington D.C. also reacted to the show, saying although the show is fictional, its premise mirrors current events.

    “It is, therefore, inevitable that its depiction of world leaders will have an impact on how its audience views the real personages and the countries they represent,” the embassy said in a statement.

    It added the episode not only casts doubt on the president’s respectability, but also “denigrates the way our nation navigates foreign affairs.”

    The embassy said the depiction of the president tarnishes the Philippines’ longstanding advocacy for women’s rights and gender equality.

    It called on CBS Corporation, where the show airs, to take necessary corrective action.

    The 15th episode in the third season of “Madam Secretary” is set to air on March 12th in the United States.

    1. Everyone knows that Madam Secretary is a failed propaganda attempt to get Hilary Clinton elected as US President. To be accurate the TV series should have showed the impropriety of Madam Sec’s “White Houseband” serviced oral sex by an intern. Oh wait that actually did happen, remember the Bill Clinton Monica Lewinski affair (scandal).

      US Liberals Democrats have identical agenda with our RP Liberal Party. This TV episode is a try at political destabilization to prevent repairing US-Filipino Relations relations between Trump and Du30, that was damaged under Obama.

      Hollywood’s brazen political agenda at the Oscars and Oprah declaring to run as the next US president, are indicators of mass media mind control manipulation of US TV entertainment and news media.

      Luckily the American people online saw Hillary’s weird convulsions as if under demonic possession (sinasapian), talking to herself in a trance, attempting to rally occult supporters for “spirit cooking” (witchcraft praying) while calling Trump’s conservative Christian supporters deplorable. Then there’s Hilary’s version of our SAF44 massacre, the Benghazi bungling that left state department officials needlessly tortured and killed.

      The biased and racist TV series should show the ugly face of their real-life bitchy American Madam Secretary.

    2. So is it your position that our embassy folks up in Washington say nothing at all.

      Thanks to Duterte, we are no longer considered the typical Pinoys that can be bullied.

      Thats what we get for Duterte’s disrespect to then President OBama. Its not offensive at all to the Filipino people. Only to the administration.
