10 Depressing Tweets on the Latest in World News
From Marcos' Burial to the U.S. Election Results
(SPOT.ph) If yesterday's news gave us the Supreme Court of the Philippines' decision to bury former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, today we have Donald Trump's win at the U.S. Elections. Technically, both events are dated November 8, only the latter happened on November 9, Manila time.
Considering the Republican's conservative stand on a number of issues, from immigration to same-sex rights, and reported history of misogyny, sexism, and harassment, a lot of people aren't too happy about the news these days. Most have compared America's bad call to the Philippines' questionable decisions. We summarize all the feels in 10 tweets.
