A Tiktok video showing Manny Pacquiao getting interviewed by an American journalist named Michael Bensinger has been drawing laughs and raising the eyebrows of netizens after it was shared on Facebook by Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Chu on her FB page.
Personally? I clicked on the video because of the eye-catching caption embedded in the video which reads: Ganito ako magrecite noon Grade 3 pa ako, di pa ako confident, di pa ako convincing.
However, when you finished watching the video, you will know why netizens are scratching their heads and making comments that Pacquiao is not to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate.
Here are some of the comments from netizens below.
Nasa Dyos ang awa nasa tao ang gawa. Ano ka kapag naupo kna sa pagka presidente kapag may problema na kinakaharap ang bansa tas sasabihin mo lang God is good malalagpasan naten to, tama yan pero, wala kang gagawin kundi mag aantay ka lang ng hinala kasi di mo kayang solusyonan….??
God have mercy on us pag siya nanalo.. it will be a disastrous philippines
Nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa. Di mo kami pwede ipag pa sa Diyos. Paktay na.. Eh kung sa Diyos mo kami iaasa, eh ano pa silbi mong presidente?
sabi ng co-worker kung koreana, ano na daw nangyari sa utak ni Pakyaw, porket daw ba sikat syang boksingero eh feeling nya pwd na syang maging Presidente? ano daw akala nya sa bansa, parang nasa ring lang na pwd lang jumbagin ang mga problema na haharapin sa bansa? akala nya pwd na tapusin ang laban sa loob ng ilang rounds?
