Netizens have offered their various remark on the Hontiveros statement and majority of them aren’t happy with the Senator.

One netizen remarked that Hontiveros statement was copy straight from Dilawan’s playbook.

Galawang dilawan yung china issue pwede nila ipang divert kasi di na nila magamit abusayaf at naka martial law sa mindanao kung kapanahunan nila yan palalabasin na nila abusayaf para mangidnap ng foreigner 😁😁😁😁😁

Another netizen lamented the Senator’s no appreciation of the value of public bidding. “Sen. Risa does not appreciate the value of a public bidding. She just wants a politically motivated and racist witch hunt. Now back to the Water issue…”

One netizen explained that Hontiveros is hitting China because she did not receive money from them but that is not same with the Oligarchs. “Its bc china has not given her any money…unlike the oligarchs who have given her millions.”
