Senator Roxas and Charter Change
Speaking before an estimated 7000 anti-Charter Change protesters who gathered at Ayala Avenue in Makati City, presidential contender and incumbent senator Mar Roxas shouted, “Putang-ina! Patayin ang Gloria Forever Cha Cha na ito!” When Lacson, Villar, Legarda, De Castro, and Gordon heard this, they told their respective aides, “I want that part uploaded into YouTube! Asap!”
Speaking before thousands in Makati City with TV cameras everywhere, Sen. Mar Roxas told the crowd, “Putang-ina! Patayin ang Gloria Forever Cha Cha na ito!” A presidential contender, Roxas thus became the first senator in Philippine history to utter “Putang ina” in public. Now you know why he is called “Mr. Palengke.”
At the anti-Charter Change rally in Makati City last Friday, Sen. Mar Roxas told the crowd, “Putang-ina! Patayin ang Gloria Forever Cha Cha na ito!” When Korina Sanchez heard this, she said, “Shit! Pa’no pa ko magiging first lady n’yan?!”
During the anti-Charter Change rally in Makati City, Sen. Mar Roxas shouted “putang ina!” The use of the expletive came as a shock to Roxas’ closest aides… mainly because in private, the senator only uses words like “Imbyerna,” “Keber!,” and “Etchos!”
Briefly Noted: A day before the anti-Charter Change rally in Makati City, people were talkin’ about Charter Change. Less than a day later, everyone’s talkin’ about Mar Roxas. How’s that for publicity?
