manipulated photo of Noynoy Aquino

A pro-Duterte FB page posted a manipulated photo of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III raising the hands of Joseph “Erap” Estrada and Amado Bagatsing, who are running for City of Manila mayor and vice mayor.

The image photoshopped a photo of Aquino with a March 2016 Asia Sentinel photo of Estrada, who was raising the hand of then-presidential candidate Grace Poe, and a February 2016 Northbound Philippines photo of Bagatsing with then-presidential candidate Duterte and running mate Alan Peter Cayetano.

Aquino has not issued any endorsement for the two candidates.
