Manny Pacquiao has been the butt of jokes on social media once again on the thread opened by a Mon Cualoping, Undersecretary & Director General at Philippine Information Agency on Facebook.
For context, Cualoping shared the snippet of Pacquiao’s interview by Tina Monzon Palma of ANC wherein Pacquiao talked about the country’s main problem and that is corruption.
When asked by Monzon what he thinks is the solution, Pacquiao answered he will send all the thieves in government to jail after declaring war on corruption.
Perhaps, flabbergasted by Pacquiao’s optimism, Monzaon-Palma could only respond by wishing Pacquiao “Good luck!”
In the said interview, Pacquiao also talked about Finance and Economy. He lamented that the Duterte government appears to be directionless in terms of the economy. Pacquiao noted country lacks a long-term masterplan and he wants it legislated.
PACQUIAO: I am not blaming the administration.
MONZON-PALMA: Ano ang nakikita mong solusyon?
PACQUIAO: Corruption. Ipapakulong ko lahat ng magnanakaw sa gobyerno. Declaring war against corruption.
MONZON-PALMA: Inspiring. Good luck!
Also, Pacquiao was talking about Finance and Economy. Oh diba.
Cualoping’s FB post has generated 1,312 reactions, 180 comments and 80 shares in just 2 hours and counting.
Here are some of the comments of netizens below.
“Ipakulong mo lahat nang magnanakaw sa gobyerno kasama sarili mo.. Anung nangyari sa sports complex mo sa saranggani na nagkakahalaga nang 3.5B bakit walang matinong pasilidad doon? Nasaan ang pera? Isa ka ring corrupt.. Bayad ka muna 2.2B sa tax mo,” a netizen commented to dare Pacquiao fulfill his promise, even if it means going to jail himself.
“Ang saya! Lahat ipapakulong. Hanapin kaya niya yung gumagawa nung Sports Center ng Sarangani. Pati lahat ng incharge sa racket na yun. Duh! ” added another netizen.
“Hiyang-hiya ang mga proyektong Build, build, build. Universal Health Law at Free Edication sa mga State Universities. Hiyang-hiya,” reacted a netizen on Pacquiao saying the Duterte government appears to be directionless.
Be careful what you wish for, a netizen warned Pacquiao.
“Examine yourself. What you say is what you are. Look at what you did to your abandoned Saranggani project. Explain this 3.5billion pesos project. Be ready to go to jail.”
“Yan ang natutunan nya in just 3 mos degree of polsci, hoy pakyaw kumusta na ang 3.5B na saranggani provnl sports center, mukhang abandon na ang project mo ah san napunta ang 3.5B? intact pa ba ang budget o natunaw na pero accomp . wala, you have a lot of explaining to do,” an annoyed netizen demanded an explanation from Pacquiao regarding the abandoned Sports Center in Sarangani.
