They were like kids, these bloggers, fighting over a piece of candy bar.

After gaining so much air and print space and public attention, one of them acted like an untouchable king while the other paled at being eclipsed. This queer-named blogger taunted the other for getting an accreditation in the coming ASEAN conference in Manila. An ally deduced this as “away bakla lang” that, at the end of the day, magkakakampi na ulit sila. And then the one who exposed this virtual skirmish on video went on and off Facebook.

Members of this troika that made such a fuss over this proverbial candy bar are not dim-witted and lackluster at all. With impeccable academic backgrounds (another lady-blogger not included here), they just happened to be very sensitive to issues surrounding their icon, President Duterte, in that they are on the get-set mode with any attack or criticism.

Last week, the dip in the Duterte popularity was of great concern to `all the President’s men. Bati-bati na ulit sila and they are now on the heels of trying to decipher what went wrong and re-strategize as intensely as they blogged.

If saving the President’s image were the focus, then nothing can go wrong except if the leader himself blunders bigtime.

So, enough with fanning the flames of divergence and disjoint and more of communicating the best – only the best – in the Duterte Administration.
