At first, I didn’t really give this article a second read as it came from Page Six, a NY gossip column. But a few minutes ago, I saw in the news that the government confirmed it, but claimed that it was a Filipino congressman who picked up the bill, thus reassuring everyone that none of the country’s funds were used.

As if it made things better.

 

That wasn’t the point.

The point was, as Filipinos become more hungry, its leader is still able to enjoy the expensive dishes at Le Cirque in NYC.

 

Shameful.
