Imelda & Ferdinand: Exile in Hawaii Documentary



More than 30 years ago, Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos were ousted from power in the Philippines and landed in Hawaii’s lap.

Their exile in the islands became a years-long, global spectacle.

And it divided the community as the Marcos family brought their lavish and loud lifestyle to Oahu.

In this special digital documentary, HNN explores how one the largest political scandals in modern history landed in the Aloha State, and why ― decades later ― the controversy surrounding the Marcos family is far from resolved.

  1. Captain Price: We All Know Marcos Is A Good Guy But Aquino isn't Some Of The People Of The Philippines Didnt Believe Good Stuff.
    Captain Mactavish: Aquino Is Like Zakhaev A Pretend Good Hero But The Real Is That She Is A Villain.
    Simon Ghost Riley: Marcos Didnt Allow Communist But Aquino Allow's Communist.
    Sergeant Garrick: Some People Of The Philippines Didnt Believe Marcos They Believe Aquino.

  2. This is total false accusation against the Marcoses. They were actually abducted by the opposition backed by USA and oligarchs who were envious of their wealth and his plan to create Asian dollar. He was actually very wealthy because of his gold investments before he became a president. After 35 years of investigation and scrutiny the courts finally couldn't prove them guilty.

  3. It was a good life back the on President Marcos era.. Martial Law was imposed by the request of the president and approved by the senate and congress to avoid the Communist sowing terror amongst its citizens.
    Martial Law brought Order during the time the Terrorists-Communists are killing hundreds even thousands of peace loving Filipino citizens..

  4. THEY JUDGE IMELDA BECAUSE OF LUXURY, THATS WHAT YOU CALLED ENVY… ITS BECAUSE THAT TIME THERE'S NO SOCIAL MEDIA THE CAMERA FOCUSES ON THEM. LOOK AT KRIS AQUINO BEING SO LUXIRIOUS AND SHE EVEN HAVE THE JEWELRY OF IMELDA. EVERY RICH PEOPLE NOWADAYS EXPORESES HOW RICH THEY ARE HOW BIG THEIR COLLECTIONS. IMELDA HAS A LOT OF COLLECTIONS BUT IT DOESNT MEAN THAT ITS NOT HER MONEY. PEOPLE ARE SO ENTITLED THAT THEY THINK THEY OWN EVERYTHING THAT THE MARCOSES HAVE. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR COUNTRY AFTER YOU FORCED THE MAROCOSES TO STEP DOWN. REGRET!!!!

  5. Black propaganda. Aquino administration are the true thief! Im pro Marcos. After 32 years all propagandas are wrong. The books and reports are against the Marcoses in fact they are true heroes not Ninoy not Cory.

  6. FERDINAND MARCOS IS THE BEST PRESIDENT AND DUTERTE. IMELDA HAS ALL THE RIGHT TO HAVE THOSE THINGS BECAUSE SHE HAS DONE A BIG PART IN IMPROVING OUR COUNTRY AND THEY HAVE GIVEN US SO MUCH PRIDE. MANY COUNTRIES ADORED PHILLIPINES BEFORE BUT NOW OTHER COUNTRIES WILL JUST CALL US SLAVES. SEE THE BIG DIFFERENCE AFTER THE MARCOSES ARE GONE. PHILIPPINES IN NOW VERY POOR BECAUSE OF THE OLIGARCHS.

  7. Ang pure lang ng love nila sa isat isat. I wonder nagkaroon kaya siya ng mistress anak. If wala, wow! Salute to this man FEM. ❤️

  8. sometimes we only see the bad in other, but on ourselves no. interview few poor people , view picture of depress area which even on the Aquino era still exist. why strong Presidents looks bad always outside the Philippines like Duterte? why American people is part of this kind of documentary what's with the Philippines haha

  9. God so loved His people in the Phils….We have a shattered democracy restored by courage and FAITH….THE POWER OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL when democracy will be shattered but God is more powerful than money and did some miracles in the Philippines…and never leaved His People to be mislead by just few greedy politcians….

  10. Why you so mad of marcoses? They did not steal money, even the citizens know but you're all brainwashed for alot of reasons. People should throw aquinos in trash because that's where they belong. They made tons of statue of them for what? To praise them yes. And bought a sports car while the country is poor. Marcos is on of the best presidents for alot of reasons. And what did aquino do? Human rights? That'll never benefit the country, look at the US government, you'll be raped easily because of bitch culture

  11. bakit pinagtatanggol ng mga tao mga marcos, same ba tayo ng video na napanood? ang tatanga ampota buti sana kung ikakayaman niyo yang baluktot niyong paniniwala.

  12. December 8, 1986 saw the Rediffusion Thailand (TNC-BET under new management that later will be part of EGV) visiting the Malacañang Palace, in time that Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos had left behind since the People Power Revolution, it is told something that the former president had still we need to see more peaceful to the Filipino people; they were meeting to the palace guards and one of it's friends was Eugenio Lopez Jr. of ABS-CBN.

  13. After Cory took over the presidency, nawala ba ang mahihirap sa bansa?
    nawala ba ang mga squatters? HINDI rin..
    The liberal party manipulate the "media" para magmukhang masama ang Marcoses.

  14. If Cory is the real leader, why you let the Filipinos do rally instead of encouraging them not to fight. Wrong administration. Marcos is the real one.
