Background: Last week, the Senate deliberated on the proposed 2020 budget of the Philippine Sports Commission. Sports committee head Bong Go defended the budget of the PSC. It was revealed that at least P9.5-B was spent for the construction of new sports facilities for this year’s Southeast Asian Games. When Sen. Franklin Drilon inquired about what the gov’t. plans to do with the sports facilities after the SEA Games, Go failed to give a substantive answer. (You all know what happened next!)
Here’s the text version:
Cringe-worthy videos of Bong Go being interpellated by Sen. Franklin Drilon on the budget of the Philippine Sports Commission have gone viral. If you want to see the videos, just go to YouTube and search for “grilled sapsap.“
Bong Go, whose claim to fame was to take selfies with his boss prior to being elected senator, was grilled by Senator Drilon on the PSC’s budget. He couldn’t give a satisfying answer to Drilon’s valid questions prompting someone from the gallery to shout, “Sunog! Saklolo! May nasusunog!”
Rumors say Bong Go’s Ka-DDS supporters are filing a case against Senator Drilon. They want him charged with arson.
Just so you know, Bong Go is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Games, Amusements and Sports. So far, based on his recent Senate grilling, he’s been successful on the “amusements” part.
After the hearing, Bong Go tried to take a selfie with his companions but he couldn’t. Insiders say, “Wala na siyang mukhang maiharap sa camera.”
Bong Go has officially tapped Ateneo’s Tab Baldwin and UST’s Aldin Ayo for future Senate hearings. He desperately needs great coaches.
