President Rodrigo Duterte delivered his much-awaited fifth State of the Nation Address yesterday. Instead of the usual crowd, the audience was limited to a number of Congress and Cabinet officials who had to observe strict social distancing measures due to the coronavirus scare. While we’re low-key sad about the fact that this year we missed a lot of officials treating SONA like a fashion runway, these tweets from netizens reacting to the President’s speech will make up for it.

In case you didn’t know, Designated Survivor is a thriller series about a low-level official promoted to President of the US after an attack during the State of the Union address claimed the lives of the president and most of the Cabinet. You can watch it on Netflix if it tickles your fancy.
What’s the funniest tweet you saw about #SONA2020?
