CBS' 'Madam Secretary' Under Fire From Philippines Government (Statement)

Tea Leoni‘s Madam Secretary is under fire from the Philippines government over an upcoming episode on CBS.

Here’s the synopsis of the episode, titled “Break In Diplomacy,” from CBS: “Elizabeth is shocked when the Philippines’ unconventional new president, Datu Andrada (Joel de la Fuente), makes a pass at her during their meeting to discuss his refusal to participate in an Asia-Pacific territory treaty.”

“While Madam Secretary is a work of fiction, it tracks and mirrors current events. It is, therefore, inevitable that its depiction of world leaders will have an impact on how its audience views the real personages and the countries they represent. This highly negative portrayal of our Head of State not only casts doubt on the respectability of the Office of the Philippine President but also denigrates that way our nation navigates foreign affairs. It also tarnishes the Philippines’ longstanding advocacy for women’s rights and gender equality,” the embassy of the Philippines said in a statement.

See photos from the episode, which is scheduled to air this Sunday.

    I am a Filipino and I AGREE to this…perfect portrayal of our current, psychotic President

  • told youso55

    Everyone knows that Madam Secretary is a failed propaganda attempt to get Hilary Clinton elected as US President. To be accurate the TV series should have showed the impropriety of Madam Sec’s “White Houseband” serviced oral sex by an intern. Oh wait that actually did happen, remember the Bill Clinton Monica Lewinski affair (scandal).

    US Liberal Democrats have identical agenda with our RP Liberal Party. This TV episode is a try at political destabilization to prevent repairing US-Filipino relations between Trump and Du30, that was damaged under Obama.

    Hollywood’s brazen political agenda at the Oscars and Oprah declaring to run as the next US president are indicators of mass media mind control manipulation of US TV entertainment and news media.

    Luckily the American people online saw Hillary’s weird convulsions as if under demonic possession (sinasapian), talking to herself in a trance, attempting to rally occult supporters for “spirit cooking” (witchcraft praying) while calling Trump’s conservative Christian supporters deplorable. Then there’s Hilary’s version of our SAF44 massacre, the Benghazi bungling that left state department officials needlessly tortured and killed.

    The biased and racist TV series should show the ugly face of their real-life bitchy American Madam Secretary.

    If this portrayal was all the Philippine people had to worry about, they’d be lucky. Instead they have a narcissistic nut case running their country. Of course, there’s a lot of that going around these days.
