Senator Pacquiao scored another TKO in the during the resumption of the testimony of Edgar Matobato in today’s senate hearing, courtesy of Leila de Lima!
In the video, Senator Pacquiao took a swipe at fellow newbie senator, Leila de Lima during the resumption of the Senate hearing on extrajudicial killings under the administration.
Prior to the lecture of Senator Pacquiao, Senator de Lima made an appeal to the panel to let Edgar Matobato to finish his explanations.
De Lima’s appeal came after senators bombarded Matobato with wave after wave of questions while de Lima’s star witness was not yet done answering the previous question.
Again I go back to my appeal earlier. Iwasan po natin ang misleading. Kapag naman po siguro meron siyang ineexplain, hayaan naman po siya para makaexplain.
After de Lima yielded the mic, Senator Pacquiao took his turn to speak and brought up the senate rules.
What I understand Mr. Chairman, dito, ito ay inquiry sa isang witness para pakinggan natin ang panig, ah yung statement nung witness. Hindi natin dedepensahan sya o kung ano kung di i-cross examine natin sya kung nagsasabi sya ng totoo. Tayong mga senador ay nagiimbestiga, hindi magpoprotekta doon sa witness. Yun po ang roles natin dito. Thank you, Mr. Chair!

During the yellow regime, Senator Paquiao was viewed as a political mascot . But now, with Pres. Dutertes leadership, he has proven he can be an effective politician. Back then he was a boxer turned Congressman. Now, he’s a Senator who can box!

Yan ang kailangan natin,street smart at may sentido komon,hindi ang mga disenteng naninilaw at kumakain ng pagpag at sumisigaw ng demokrasya.

Honestly, may duda ako noon when he got elected. A boxer? Really? It appears he’s a fast learner indeed to becoming fine Senator.
Angel Robles says:
Now Pacquiao has proven to the seemingly intellectual professionals who graduated from the top Universities, that logical reasoning does not require a degree, it only needs common sense.
Astee Tagle says:
I’d say Kudos to Pacquiao’s adviser (team) too.
In politics, some politicians are just another face but behind them are advisers.
All in all, Filipinos deserve it.
