To borrow the words of TP aka Thinking Pinoy, “Poe’s greatest mistake is waging a PR war against Tugade whose achievements are so visible, he doesn’t even need PR for them.“
ICYMI, Poe asked for DOTr Sec. Art Tugade’s head from President Duterte, calling him an underperformer for failing to fix Metro Manila traffic.
Tugade retaliated by describing Poe’s behavior as “masyadong bilib sa sarili” or egomaniacal and he served at the pleasure of the President, not to the whims, caprice and theatrics of misguided politicians,
IMO, Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Chu’s FB post dated 12 September 2019 is the best and most professional-sounding insult Grace Poe can read so far. Again, I just borrowed the phrase of the commenter of Krizette Chu.
Why? Well, I urge you to continue reading below to know why the commenter dubbed Krizette Chu’s FB post as the most professional-sounding insult Poe can read now.
Dear Grace Poe,
Hindi nag pursige si Art Tugade in turning his life around, from being a poor boy from Tatalon who had to sell garapata (garapa pala) para lang may pambili ng gamit sa skwelahan, maging scholar from kinder to college to law school, maging billionaire thru nothing but hard work, at iwan ang dapat relaxing at marangyang retirement years nya at mag hirap sa pag silbi, para lang insultuhin ng mga spoiled bratty girls like you who has never known hard work, hardship, and hardiness.
You had everything handed to you on a silver platter, from becoming an MTRCB chair even when all the experience you had pertaining to movies was being the daughter of a screen legend; AND THEN you became a senator by riding on your father’s name WITH ZERO experience as a local government employee. You had it all easy, and people like you who have it easy don’t know shit.
You don’t know what work is. You don’t know what it means to work hard when you set a goal because all your goals were reached by dint of your family name.
You don’t deserve any of the positions you ever got from this government. Not as chairwoman of MTRCB, not as Senator.
So please sit your ass and let real adults handle the traffic problem because this is BEYOND your capacity.
SIT YOUR ASS BECAUSE THE SENATE IS NOT THE PLACE FOR THAT GIANT CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER, YOUR GRAPPLING WITH YOUR PERSONAL IDENTITY AND WORTH, AND YOUR PERSONAL LOST GIRL ISSUES ABOUT HAVING TO PROVE THAT YOU DESERVE YOUR PLACE IN THIS WORLD.
PS: Flex ko Lang yung photo namin, madam Grace.
This is Art Tugade at his office in Clark, where he goes to every day from
his house in Alabang. He pays these Aetas to work on the building periphery and the “farm” he has in the area, with the produce just laid out outside the entrance so that staff can pick what they need. He doesn’t believe in doleouts, he believes in putting in effort. Art Tugade VALUES real work—a concept that is probably foreign to you.
BTW, below is the screen grab of the comment describing Chu’s FB post as “the best and most professional-sounding insult Grace Poe can read so far.”
