A Facebook post calling Senator Kiko Pangilinan the ‘quintessential village idiot of the senate’ has trended on Facebook.
Netizen Reen Ramirez gave Pangilinan the label in reaction to a tweet who originally called Pangilinan a ‘confused idiot’.
On Facebook, Ramirez spoke how sometimes she couldn’t help but wonder how the likes of Pangilinan, Hilbay and Robredo did pass the bar exam after making idiotic statements.
Minsan gusto mo na din mapaisip, posible ba na nagbayad lang ito para maging lawyer? When you see the likes of him, Florencio Hilbay, Leni Robredo et al..mapapatanong ka talaga eh. Paano nakapasa ito? Not meant to take a swipe at lawyers here, pero ung totoo, paano nakapasa ang mga ito? 🤔🙄
As of this writing, the Facebook post has generated more than 6K shares, and more than 1,400 reactions.
Here are some of the notable comments from netizens below.
Joanna Sebastian Once you lie to push your own agenda, you end up contradicting yourself. And to think he claims he’s a farmer.
Mich G Borbe “Never confuse education with wisdom.”
Tom Cruz Paano ba naging abogado iyan? Isa pang low IQ iyan sa senado, magkasama sila ni Trilliling.
Mi Na Sabi nila henyo ang mga Nagharvard kagaya ni kiko.henyo pala sya sa mga mas bobo sa kanya
Lan U. Lac basta makadakdak lang ang unggoy na Pangilinan na ito.. di na nag-iisip
In case you’re wondering how Pangilinan earned the moniker, props to a guy named Guy Tolentino ranted against Pangilinan for sounding the alarm of a rice shortage. But when the government imports rice, Pangilinan cautions the government from doing such because importation may hurt the farmers.
In frustration, Tolentino couldn’t help but remark, ‘worse than an idiot is a confused idiot.’
