Atty. Nick of the FB page Nick Nañgit – NCN Law praised the response of the Spox of Presumptive VP Sara Duterte to Senator Risa Hontiveros questioning her appointment as the next DepEd Secretary because the senator believes that position should be held by an education expert.
However, if Atty. Nick were to respond on behalf of the Presumptive Vice President, he would tell Senator Hontiveros to shape up now. She has been a senator for some time and yet she remain “shunga” aka stupid.
Atty. Nick explained that Cabinet members are the President’s alter ego. The appointing power is the sole domain of the President. Now, Atty. Nick wants to know if Senator Hontiveros is President, then her opinion matter? He remarked that if the Presumptive President likes to Sara to lead DepEd, what can she do? If she opposes Sara’s appointment because of CA (Commission of Appointment) it will come down to a vote. Now the question is, how many votes does Senator Hontiveros thinks she has?
The truth of the matter, is it correct to say that Senator Hontiveros’ allies has been saying that BBM has no college degree? So, if Senator Hontiveros thinks Sara is not qualified to be the next DepEd Secretary, what more does Hontiveros thinks of BBM who wields the power to appoint? Following Senator Hontiveros’ logic, does she thinks the one with appointing power has no K? As in karapatan? Right?
If Hontiveros does not wish to recognize BBM, well she has no other choice. Atty. Nick remarked that the feeling is mutual but no matter how much we would like to vomit Senator Hontiveros, we have no other choice.

Ang ganda pa nga ng sagot ng Spox ni Presumptive VP Sara #Duterte!
Kung ako yan, sasabihin ko dito sa senadorang pasang awa, Hoy magpakatino ka na! Tinaguriang senadora ka, pero sa tagal mo sa pwesto, shunga ka pa rin!
Ang Kalihim ay alter ego ng Pangulo. Nasa kay Presumptive President Marcos – uulitin ko, Bongbong #Marcos – kung sino ang itatalaga niya. Ngayon, ikaw ba ang pangulo, para yung nasa kokote mo ang masusunod?! Kung gusto niya si Sara, may magagawa ka ba? Kung kokontra ka, dahil sa CA, botohan yun. Ilang boto meron ka, put rag guess ka?!
Sa katunayan pa nga, diba ang ibinabato ng mga kabagang mo e walang degree si #BBM? So, kung walang K si #Sara maging Kalihim, pano na lang si BBM na may appointing power? Wala rin ba siyang K mag-appoint?
Kung di mo kinikilala si BBM na Pangulo, wala kang choice!
Kami nga, sukang-suka na sa mukamo, pero wala rin kaming choice!
