In yesterday’s senate hearing on election fraud, one of the most unforgettable remarks that shocked social media came from the mouth of Sen. Franklin Drilon.
Here’s what happened.
While Chong was explaining a point to Senator Drilon, the senator from Iloilo suddenly interrupted Chong telling him to stop making insulting remarks because only the senators are allowed to insult here. Check out the video here.
Whether Drilon meant what he said or not, Chong replied by saying “sorry” to Drilon, then went on to pick up where he started.
Drilon, visibly amused of his antic, laughed at Chong.
The senate gallery took his lead, by laughing with Drilon and Pangilinan.
Drilon’s remark though did not amuse retired broadcaster Jay Sonza.
Sonza took to Facebook to castigate the Iloilo senator, demanding from the senator to educate him as per Philippine law that explicitly says senators have exclusive rights to insult or cuss during senate hearing.
anong batas ang nagbigay ng exclusive right sa mga senador na magmura o mang-insulto during senate hearing? sabi kasi ni “sen. tulog” sila lang ang may karapatan. tiningnan ko sa constitution at revised penal code sir, wala akong nakita. please educate us mr. bar topnotcher.
Napamura po kasi si Atty. Chong habang ikinukuwento kung papaano nandaya ang LP sa 2016 elections. Bisperas (May 8) pa lang ng halalan bumobotong mag-isa ang mga makina ng smartmatic at nagpapadala na ng resulta pabor sa kandidato ng LP sa comelec !!!!
Eh, sa putang ina, mapapamura ka talaga dahil may patunay nga na ganito ang nangyari pala.
YAWA. DE PUTA, LINTIAN. BUNGKUNANA. TAKNIDO. DAMONYO….
Sonza’s post has been quite popular among his Facebook supporters generating quite a buzz judging by the number of shares and likes it receive, just 5 hours after Sonza hit the publish button in Facebook.
Meanwhile, Drilon has been getting the flak on social media for making the remark as shown in the comments below.
