Senator Grace Poe has been demonized and called with many unsavory names by critics for nixing request of emergency powers for President Duterte to fix the traffic not just in Metro Manila but in major cities in the country.
But, “Ampon ni S@tanas?” Wow! This is new to me.
However, before you judge radio host Mark Lopez for calling Poe that name, let us listen to Lopez’s reason first.
Lopez remarked that the picture below tells us a lot about the traffic situation in the country in 2014.
In 2014, Poe made a headline-grabbing MRT train ride to dramatize the plight of our commuters and the sad state of our train system, which prompted her to conduct a senate inquiry.
The picture, according to Lopez tells us that since 2014, the traffic was so bad or an emergency situation and she already knew and yet she did raise a finger except call for endless senate inquiry in aid of free publicity for her 2016 presidential bid.
You may read the original FB post of Mark Lopez below.
AMPON NI SATANAS
Peeps, eto ha tingnan nyo.
Uulitin ko – 2014.
Chairman na si Grace Poe ng Senate Committee on Public Services.
Krisis na ang MRT dahil nga sa incompetence nina Mar Roxas at Joseph Abaya. And malaking issue na ang traffic sa EDSA. Kaya nga naboljak pa sina Noynoy at Mar di ba dahil ang excuse nila is that “heavy traffic is a sign of progress.”
So 2014 pa lang, MALINAW NA NASA EMERGENCY SITUATION NA ANG TRANSPORT SYSTEM ng bayan.
Ayan si Grace Poe mismo nag immerse at pumila. Of course, posturing yan for her presidential run pero ayan at nakita nya mismo ang situation on the ground.
And wala pa si Rody Duterte at Art Tugade jan ha.
So Madam Trapoe, anung petsa na?
FIVE YEARS AGO, alam mo na na kritikal na ang issue ng transportation and traffic.
5 FUCKING YEARS!
Tapos hanggang ngayon, chairman ka pa din ng Public Services at puro BS at porma lang.
Worse, ang tigas din ng mukha mo mag bitaw sa isang genuine public servant na sya eh “underperformer?”
Ang sama mo. 😡
