EXCLUSIVE: MANNY PACQUIAO WITHDRAWS CANDIDACY

Masakit man sa kalooban, nagpasya po akong umurong sa pagtakbo bilang senador.

JUST MINUTES after Boy Abunda’s impassioned speech denouncing Manny Pacquiao’s anti-LGBT statement, the senatorial candidate sought an audience with the King of Talk. Here’s the full, unedited online-exclusive conversation between Boy and Pacquiao.

1MA

Mga kaibigan, hindi po kayo namamalik-mata. Kasama ko ngayon, Manny Pacquiao. Magandang gabi, Manny at maraming salamat sa pagpapaunlak mo sa panayam na ito!

Wala ‘yon Kuya Boy. Sumusunod lang ako sa kagustuhan ni Lord. Sabi kasi sa Luke 6:35, “Love your enemies… expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great… for He Himself is kind to evil men.”

So, sinasabi mo bang evil ako Manny? Masahol sa hayop na, evil pa? Hindi ko naman yata matatanggap ‘yan.

Kuya Boy, hindi ako ang nagsabi niyan. Bible ang nagsabi niyan.

Manny, sabi rin sa Bible, and let me quote Leviticus 20:10, “If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, both the man and the woman who have committed adultery must be put to death.” Ang tanong ko Manny: Bakit buhay ka pa?

Hindi mo na-gits ang Bible, Kuya Boy. Ang linaw ng sabi ‘di ba: “If a man commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife…” NEIGHBOR’S WIFE daw Kuya Boy. Unang-una, hindi ko neighbor ang naging chicks ko. Pangalawa, single ang mga ‘yon; hindi pa sila wife. So paanong ipu-put to death ako? Common sense lang Kuya Boy. Common sense.

Manny, napanood ko ang iyong apology sa Twitter at Facebook. And allow me to quote you, “Nais ko pong humingi ng paumanhin sa lahat ng nasaktan dahil sa aking pagkumpara sa tao sa hayop. Iyon po ay kamalian ko.” Manny, linawin nga natin. Kamalian mo ito… dahil?

Dahil kahapon ko lang nalaman Kuya Boy na meron palang baklang hayop at meron ding tomboy na hayop. Sobrang shocked ako. ‘Tapos, may nabasa pa ako tungkol sa flatworms. Nagpi-penis fencing daw ang mga bulateng ‘yan. Grabi. At ‘yan ang pagkakamali ko Kuya Boy. Baligtad ang sinabi ko sa interview. Dapat pala: mas masahol pa sila sa tao. Kinilabutan talaga ako. Ipagpi-pray ko na lang sila Kuya Boy.

Manny, reaksyon lang sa mga kumento ng ilang taga-industriya. Direk Joey Reyes indirectly described you as a “celebrated bigot.”

Ok lang.

Hindi ka nasasaktan kapag tinatawag kang bigot?

Hindi.

Really?! Hindi ka nasasaktan at all?

Hindi ko naman alam ang bigot. Hihi What you don’t know won’t hurt you. Uy Ingles. Hihi

Ang sabi ni Vice Ganda… “Ang pagpatol sa parehong kasarian ay masahol pa sa hayop??? Eh ang pakikiapid habang ika’y may asawa, anong kababuyan ‘to? Pakisagot Manny!”

Sinagot ko na ‘yan kanina Kuya Boy. Parurusahan ka lang ni Lord kung makikiapid ka sa “neighbor’s wife.” Kung hindi mo pa rin gits Vice Ganda, ipagpi-pray na lang kita. Pero sige, hinahamon kita, magpakita ka ng pruwiba. Nasaan ang kapitbahay na pinatulan ko? NASAAN?!? Nagbibintang ka. Matakot ka naman sa Diyos. “You shall not spread a false report.” Exodus 23:1

May mas matindi pang sinabi si Vice. Ang ginamit niyang term: false prophet.

Nakakalungkot Kuya Boy dahil pinaghirapan kong lahat ang laban ko, ang yaman ko, ang mga investments ko. Hindi ako nagnakaw. Kung anuman ang tinubo ko sa negosyo, true lahat ‘yon. Anong false ang ipinagkakalat niya? Konting common sense naman.

Manny, si Aiza Seguerra nag-tweet din. Just so you know, Aiza is married to Liza Diño, at sabi niya, you are an “ignorant, bigoted hypocrite.”

Pasinsya na Kuya Boy pero kukuntrahin ko ang dalawang sinabi niya. Hindi ako ignorante at hindi rin ako hypocrite. Pero aaminin ko: ilang araw na akong hindi nag-aahit kaya bigoted ako. May point naman siya dun kahit papa’no.

Nagsalita na ang iyong kandidato sa pagkapangulo, si Vice President Binay. He said entitled ka raw sa opinion mo.

Una, pasalamat ako kay VP Binay sa support niya. Hindi ako nagkamali ng piniling kandidato sa pagka-prisidinti. Pangalawa, iisipin ko pa. Isa na lang muna. Kailangan ba ngayon na?

Ano ang masasabi mo sa alegasyon ng pagnanakaw, kurapsyon at pandarambong na ibinabato laban kay VP?

Katulad din ‘yan ng sagot ko sa pakikiapid Kuya Boy. Leviticus 19:13, “Do not defraud or rob your neighbor.” Kapitbahay ba ni VP ang sinasabing ninakawan niya? Hindi naman ‘di ba? City hall ‘yon. Hindi naman siya nakatira sa tabi ng city hall kaya hindi ‘yon neighbor. Sa madaling salita, walang kasalanan si VP. Common sense lang Kuya Boy. Common sense.

Noong isang araw, usap-usapan din sa social media ang anak ni Sen. Grace Poe na si Brian dahil nag-post ito ng picture ng sapatos na nabili niya for 10,000 pesos. Unethical daw ito sabi ng ilang kritiko. Bilang preacher, ano ba ang sinasabi ng Bible tungkol dito?

Huwag na nating idamay ang Bible Kuya Boy. Common sense lang. Nakakita ka na ba ng hayop na nagsuot ng mamahaling sapatos? Hindi pa ‘di ba? In short, ‘yang anak ni Grace Poe ay masahol pa sa hayop.

Sa latest senatorial survey, pasok ka sa Magic 12 which means posibleng manalo ka sa eleksyon. My question is: What have we done as a nation to deserve this?

Sa totoo lang Kuya Boy hindi ko rin inexpect na papasok ako sa Magic 12. Unang-una, hindi naman ako naniniwala sa magic. “….for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord.” Deuteronomy 18:10-12. Pangalawa, ano nga ulit ‘yong tanong mo?

Ibang tanong na lang Manny. Hypothetical lang, kung isa sa mga anak mong lalaki ay maging homosekswal at magkagusto sila sa kapwa lalaki, paano mo ito haharapin?

Alam mo Kuya Boy, ‘yan din ang nagtulak para magpa-interview ako sa ‘yo. Gusto kong dito i-announce ang isang napakahalagang bagay.

May bakla sa mga anak mo Manny?!? Sino sa kanila? Si Michael na kamukha mo? Si Jimuel na kamukha ni Jinkee? Syet, huwag mong sabihing si Israel!?!

Bakit ko naman i-a-announce na bakla ang anak ko? Common sense naman Kuya Boy.

So ano nga ang announcement mo?

Kung pwede Kuya Boy, haharap na ako sa camera…

Go!

Sa mga minamahal kong kababayan,

Unang-una, ‘pasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil binigyan niya ako ng lakas ng loob na gawin ito ngayon. Pangalawa, ‘pasalamat ako sa pamilya ko, sa mga kapartido ko, kay VP Binay at sa lahat ng supporters ko.

Narito ako ngayon para i-announce na aatras na po ako sa pagtakbo sa pagka-senador. Alam kong marami sa inyo ang malulungkot sa desisyon kong ito pero dapat ko itong gawin para sa aking mga anak na lalaki.

Napagpasyahan ko pong ilaan na lang ang oras ko sa kanila. Habang ako ay malakas pa, iti-train ko sila sa pagboboksing at iba pang contact sports para matiyak na hindi sila magiging bakla. Bakit ‘ka n’yo? Dahil malinaw po ang nakasulat sa Leviticus 20:13.

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”

Sinusunod ko lang po ang utos ni Lord kaya ngayon pa lang ay gagawa na ako ng paraan para maiiwas sa malaking kasalanan sina Michael, Jimuel at maging si Israel.

“… neither effeminate, nor homosexuals… shall inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

Sana po ay maunawaan n’yo ang aking desisyon. May mga anak din kayong lalaki at babae. Gusto n’yo ba silang lumaking sumisiping sa kapwa nila lalaki o kapwa babae? Common sense lang. Common sense.

Maraming salamat po and God bless you all.

THANK YOU MANNY. Magbabalik ang Tonight With Boy Abunda.

“Common sense lang. Makakakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae? Mas mabuti pa yung hayop. Marunong kumilala kung lalaki, lalaki, o babae, babae. Kung lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae, eh mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao.”

Relationships
Manny Pacquiao shuns same sex unions. He believes that relationships must only be between a man and a woman. And another woman. And another woman. And another woman.

Love. Love. Love.

ONE BIG FIGHT

John Apacible, a member of the Ateneo men’s basketball team was caught on cam cursing motorists and trying to pick up a fight along Timog Avenue.

1MBPDI
SENATOR MIRIAM Defensor-Santiago has chosen Bongbong Marcos as her running mate in 2016. Last week, the feisty senator was quoted to have said that the Marcoses didn’t owe Filipinos an apology for what happened during the late dictator’s regime. Santiago’s statement can be read both online and in her upcoming book, “Stupid Is Forever Indeed.”

Feelings
Detained former president and Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is running unopposed next year. In her Facebook post, she used the emoticon “feeling loved.” Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda and son, Vice Gov. Dennis Pineda are also running unopposed. In separate Facebook posts, they used the emoticon, “feeling tumama sa jueteng.”

Loveliness
Actress Alma Moreno is running for senator. In her Facebook post, she was advised to use the emoticon, “feeling!”

Alma Moreno is seeking a Senate seat under the United Nationalist Alliance. Alma was a former live-in partner of the late Dolphy, and was married to Joey Marquez. She’s teaming up now with Vice President Binay. She really likes comedians.

Manny
Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao who is running for senator under the UNA banner has defended Vice President Binay from critics. Pacquiao says people should not be “too judgmental” on Binay. He also mentioned something about their similarities. He had humble beginnings; Binay had humble beginnings. He strived hard to become a multimillionaire; Binay strived hard to become a multimillionaire. He achieved his wealth through honest means; Binay strived hard to become a multimillionaire.

Legit
Vice President Binay’s close aide Gerry Limlingan – who is still in hiding – has asked the Court of Appeals to lift the freeze order on his 170 bank accounts. Limlingan claims his millions came from legit businesses such as mining, logging, and undying loyalty to the Binays.

“Councilor Apacible”
Have you seen the viral video of a certain John Apacible of the Ateneo Blue Eagles? Obviously, the basketeer got drunk. With a 5-4 win-loss record, who wouldn’t?

A video showing a drunk member of the Ateneo Blue Eagles causing a disturbance along Timog Avenue has gone viral. Some disgruntled members of the Ateneo community are trying to figure out a way to blame this on Coach Bo Perasol.

In the video, basketeer John Apacible – who’s obviously drunk – can be seen bragging a “COUNCILOR” protocol plate. He was approached by cops who were patrolling the area but the cops did not bother to make an arrest when Apacible introduced himself as a “councilor.” Talk about “protocol.”

1MBPDI
A video showing a drunk John Apacible of the Ateneo Blue Eagles has gone viral. In the video, Apacible went on a rage cursing motorists along Timog Avenue in Quezon City and trying to pick up a fight. Somebody must remind Apacible that he’s playing in the UAAP – not the NCAA.

John Apacible, a member of the Ateneo men’s basketball team was caught on cam cursing motorists and trying to pick up a fight along Timog Avenue. Apacible was seen on the video for over three minutes. That’s really long. In comparison, Apacible is seen inside the playing court for 2 ½ minutes on the average.

Of course, John Apacible can recover from this meltdown. This Atenean, who apparently loves to drink, is still young. He can be president – or mayor of Manila someday.
