Andrew Olivar aka Boy Landi’s says only in the Philippines when politicians need to pull off these 5 stunts to woo voters

Andrew Olivar aka Boy Landi has shared his astute observation to his Facebook followers regarding our politicians running for a position, particularly for the national position.

Basically, Boy Landi cited 5 examples of the most used and abused political stunts of our politicians to woo the votes of the poor who comprises the vast majority in the country.

Boy Landi said that these politicians are shamelessly doing these to make themselves relatable or identify themselves with the poor.

Sa Pilipinas ka lang makakakita ng mga pulitikong tatakbo na kailangang..

  1. kailangan kumain ng pangmahirap na pagkain para RELATABLE kuno.. magiging patok nanaman ang mga swuid ball, fishball, mami, sopas, lugaw at mga street food..
  2. Kailangang ikwento ang paghihirap noong kabataan.. mas madrama mas mabenta..
  3. Kailangan nasa linyahan ng mga sentence mo dapat yung word na “mahihirap”. Example: kailangan ko pataasin ang ekonomiya ng bansa dahil naaawa ako sa mahihirap
  4. Kailangan nagkakamay habang kumakain at kailangan pawisan parati ang datingan kapag nagkakampanya para magmukhang down to earth para makuha ang simpatya ng masa..
  5. Kailangan yumakap yakap with photo op sa mga mahihirap para sabihin na hindi maarte at mahal ang mahihirap..

Insane, right? Boy Landi asked. They are using the poor and abused the word poor but in the end, the poor are getting poorer and not getting the help they badly needed.

Kaloka noh?? Gamit na gamit ang mahihirap at gamit na gamit ang word na mahirap pero mahihirap din naman sa huli ang mahihirapan at hindi matutulungan.

Netizens quickly jumped into the comment section to have their voices heard.

Correct Ka sir Drew..yan ang gawain ng mga nagkunwari na tumakbo SA election, wrote one netizen.

Bogbog mga mahihirap pag election drew hahaha.pagtapos na election maraming dahilan.Pwera lang sa ngayon na administrasyon though hindi perfect pero dama ko ang pagbabago, remarked the 2nd netizen.

Madali kasing mauto ang karamihang mahihirap kaya yan palagi nila ginagamit panghikayat para makakuha ng boto, a 3rd netizen chimed in.

The 4th netizen suggested a better phrase to describe such stunts by our politicians. POVERTY PORN POLITICS.
