When the Office of the Ombudsman announced that Pnoy will be charged in the Mamasapano incident, Trillanes wasted no time in defending his embattled ally.
Trillanes says: “Binigay nya [Aquino] ang order kay Mr. Napenas at bingyan ng resources, so sa amin yung commander, so ikaw ang responsible kapag pumalpak. Hindi mo pwedeng isisi sa taas, sa ppresidente ang kapalpakan mo na sabihin e ‘kaya ako pumalpak, kasi binigyan ako ng order ng presidente.’ Hindi pwede yun.”
Netizens took the cue from Trillanes and used his logic to defend President Duterte from allegations that as President, he is solely responsible for the deaths of drug suspects killed in PNP’s war on drugs campaign.
Social media blogger Bryan Ng Co’s status update clearly puts Trillanes’ line of reasoning into question:
“Then why does he blame Duterte for everything including but not limited to the clogging of his toilet?
Duterte readily takes ownership of the problem and accepts the blame.
But the yellows? “
Edwin Jamora, another popular social media blogger, joins the conversation calling Trillanes’ logic “most stupidiest” and “twisted”.
This is the most stupidest Trillanes logic sa lahat nang twistedly stupid logic nya!
Lumita Analisa says Trillanes’ brain is the problem. “Trillianes talagang may diperensya sa utak. Utang nloob sa mga kababayan ko wag nyo ng iboto yang gagong yan!!”
Hedelyn Colon Reyes reacts that following Trillanes’ logic, why blame Duterte including the clogged drainage? “Ganun pala eh! Bakit ngayon si Duterte naging Presidente pati baradong imbornal sa kanya lahat sisi! Kupal mo Trililing!”
Zia Anselmo echoes Reyes sentiment. “Eh bakit isinisisi nya Kay Tatay D yung mga napapatay sa mga legit operations ng pulis?”
Rowena Loquias wonders where Trillanes graduated. “Trillianes doesn’t know the Command Responsibility. San ba to graduate tong idiot na to?”
