CLAIM: Former senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II is supporting presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., as shown by a recent photo of the two together.


Ex-broadcaster Jay Sonza erroneously claimed in a tweet on Dec. 16, 2021 that former senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas II had thrown his support behind Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., offering a supposed photo of the two together as proof. The same photo was posted on Facebook by user “Duke Rhan” a day earlier.

But the person with Marcos was not Roxas, a stalwart of the opposition Liberal Party. It’s former Davao del Norte representative Anton Floirendo Lagdameo Jr., Marcos’s friend and supporter.

No less than the pilot of the flight that brought Marcos to Davao City last Nov. 21, who goes by the Facebook handle “Ang Joshua,” identified Lagdameo in a video and a group photo posted publicly on his personal account.
