Atty. Nick Nañgit of the FB page Nick Nañgit – NCN Law called out UP Professor emeritus Randy David for demanding transparency from the Duterte admin regarding the full extent of the threat of the pandemic.
The eagle-eyed Atty. Nick wasted no time in highlighting the irony of Prof. David’s statement, which inspired the meme of the Philippine Daily Inquirer above.
‘Mr. David, sasabihin mo “full magnitude” tapos “beginning to hit” lang pala?!’
Atty. Nick sounded perplexed how to reconcile Prof. David’s statement demanding the full extent of the damage caused by the pandemic when the pandemic is just starting? Since Prof. David is intelligent, Atty. Nick demanded he should tell the public right now, even the pandemic is just starting, the outcome of the pandemic.
‘Paano malalaman ang hangganan at lawak ng pangambang dulot ng pandemya kung ngayon lang pala ito magsisimula? Dahil matalino ka diumano, pwes sabihin mo sa amin na kahit ngayon palang magsisimula e dapat alam na natin ang kabuuan ng pandemya?! May sagot ka ba???’
Atty. Nick reckoned that if Prof. David listened to President Duterte’s public speeches or statements, he did say to the public not to lose hope because the government is doing everything, the balancing act to provide the needs of people, as long as they follow?
‘Kung nakikinig ka sa maraming beses na pagpapahayag ng Pangulo, hindi ba’t sinasabi niya palagi na wag tayong mawawalan ng pagasa, dahil ginagawa ng pamahalaan ang plano at kakayanan nito, para balansehen ang mga pangangailangan ng mga mamamayan at tugunan ang mga ito, basta’t sumunod lang tayo?’
Atty. Nick wanted Prof. David to bare the plans he fancy that gives hope to the public? He asked the professor to cite a country that rolled out a good plan, that is why they are now covid-free?
‘Anong plano at pagasa ba ang gusto mo, ha? May bansa ka bang maibibigay bilang halimbawa na may napakabuting plano at pagasa, kaya wala ng pandemya doon o kaya’y hindi na bumalik ang veerus?’
Atty. Nick quizzed Prof. David if he was aware that all nations are still groping in the dark? And since he is very intelligent, Atty. Nick dared Prof. David to present his excellent plan that will give hope to the country. That is, his plan has not yet been discussed or thought about by the people advising the President?
‘Hindi ba’t lahat ng bansa ay nangangapa pa rin sa dilim? Dahil matalino ka ulit diumano, pwes sabihin mo sa amin ang iyong napakagaling na plano na magbibigay pagasa sa bansa! Yun ay kung meron ka na hindi pa natalakay o napagisipan ng mga utak na tumutulong sa Pangulo, ha?!’
Atty. Nick asked Prof. David if there was a “real score” he knew of? If the answer is “YES”, he wondered why he is not keen on bringing it up? Perhaps, Atty. Nick said Prof. David possesses a tool or instrument that will tells us what is really happening, hence he thinks the people making recommendations to the President is not an expert.
‘May iba pa bang “real score” kang nalalaman? Kung meron, bakit hindi mo ihayag? Baka naman may mga gamit ka o instrumentong magpapatunay sa totoong nangyayari, kaya sa tingin mo e mga hindi eksperto ang nagrerekomenda sa Pangulo?! At saka teka, sino ba ang mga experts na pinagsinasabi mo?’
Atty. Nick remarked that the sharpness of David’s tongue fails to keep in step with his dull mind, he just wished the public lose their confidence of the President, hence he was sowing intrigue that Duterte has no plan and we are hopeless.
‘Sa tabas ng dila mo na hindi sumabay sa mapurol mong pagiisip, nais mo lang na mawalan ng tiwala ang taumbayan sa Pangulo, kaya iniintriga mong walang plano at walang pagasa.’
Atty. Nick alleged Prof. David is behaving this way because his brother starred in a fiasco that exploded last year.
‘Onga pala, kasabwat ang kapatid mo sa mga kabalastugang siniwalat noong isang taon lang, kaya ka pala ganyan!’
Atty. Nick, in an emphatic tone, told Prof. David to shut up, if he can’t give a decent response to his concerns.
‘Ngayon, kung wala ka naman palang matinong sagot sa mga tanong ko, SH@D@P! 😡👹😈’
