Political scientist Alex Magno reveals that a “Black Widow” based in the United States who has been signing the checks for the well-funded public rallies and critical pieces on traditional and social media aimed at President Rodrigo Duterte recently met with an opposition senator.

In his Philippine Star column, ‎Magno said that based on informationfrom the President’s inner circile, the “Black Widow” was the financier of “Yellows” who are “cynically using the Marcos burial at the Libingan to arouse public anger, bring people to the streets and eventually force out the President.”

“The conspiracy, according to those who surround the President, is being funded by the billions of a Filipino-American widow.‎ For good measure, social media accounts have it that one senator, famous for counter-productive backchannel diplomacy, recently travelled to New York to meet with this Black Widow. We are not too sure about unverified social media accounts and so we leave both characters unn‎amed,” said Magno.

He said the Black Widow ‎could have been aided in her goal of ousting Duterte only if her bet, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, did not lose to Donald Trump who by the way was impressed with Duterte in their recent phone call.

He said the Yellows could have had better odds of ousting Duterte if only the economy was tanking; if China didn’t like Duterte too much; and if ‎they didn’t have a “record for political incompetence.”
