EXCLUSIVE: WANDA TULFO-TEO’S RESIGNATION LETTER

9 05 2018

Untitled

HIS EXCELLENCY RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE
President, Republic of the Philippines
Malacañan Palace, Manila

Dear Mr. President,

Kahapon nang umaga ay Panay ang iyak ko nang marinig ko ang balita. Mag-aalmusal ako no’n. Ang sarap ng mga pagkain sa mesa. I was so Hungary ngunit bigla akong nawalan ng Ghana. Malakas kasi ang bulung-bulungang sisibakin mo ako. Ang una kong naisip, Albay some time. Kaya’t bago pa man ang Cabinet meeting kinagabihan, inutusan ko ang aking abogado na kausapin si SAP Bong Go; baka sakaling magawan ng paraan. But it was too late. Wala na rin siyang nagawa. Ang Belize ng mga pangyayari. Bago matapos ang Lunes, wala na akong trabaho. I’m Finnished!

Tinawagan ko agad ang aking mga kapatid.

Gulat na gulat si Ben. “What the actual fuck?! Tinuluyan ka ni Tatay Digong?!? Norway!”

Halos ‘di naman nakapagsalita si Erwin. “I don’t Bolivia! Tell me this isn’t real. Tell me panaginip lang lahat ito. Busan mo ako ng tubig please!”

Dala ng labis na galit, namura ko sila. “P*tang ina n’yo kasi! Puro kayo Caloocan! Ke Bago-Baguio ko pa lang sa government service, pinagkakitaan n’yo agad. Ito ang resulta! Kasalanan n’yo ‘to!”

Sumagot si Ben, “This is in Seine! We will fix this.”

“D’yan ka magaling! Sa ‘fix-fix’ na ‘yan! Eh kung Dagupan kaya kita d’yan!?! Kumita ka na, ‘di ba?! Tama na!”

Ngunit nanindigan pa rin siya. “Malinis ang aking konsensya. Matino akong tao,” paliwanag niya.

“Matino?! Are you Syria?!?” sabi ko, “Alam ko ang Caracas mo, Ben! Alam din sa industriya ang style n’yo.”

Hindi na nakatiis si Erwin. “Akala mo ba Ate ikaw lang ang nasasaktan? Akala mo ba ikaw lang ang mapapahiya? Akala mo ba ikaw lang ang mawawalan ng kita? Camiguin!”

“Tigilan Monaco, Erwin! Tigilan n’yo na ako! Kagagawan n’yong lahat ito! Kasalanan n’yo kung bakit nawalan ako ng trabaho!”

At tuluyan na akong napahagulhol. Iraq ako nang Iraq.

Mr. President, you can Czech may track record. Heart and Seoul ang puhunan ko rito. I Cannes enumerate several other accomplishments but I rather not. Ayaw ko pong magyabang.

Basta, I Benin the travel industry for years kaya alam ko ang ginagawa ko. Kumbaga, Vatican na ako d’yan.

Alam mo kung gaano ako ka-dedicated sa trabaho! Cuba na ako sa kapu-promote sa Pilipinas. Sa katunayan, tumaas ang bilang ng mga turista sa bansa mula nang ma-appoint ako sa DOT. Hindi ko lang alam ang exact figures but Alaska a staff to send you the data.

Tanong nga po ng aking mga anak, “Mom, do you Everest?”

Sa bahay po kasi pati trabaho ng maid ginagawa ko na. Sabi nga minsan ng aking kasambahay, “Grabe ka naman Ma’am, inako mo na lahat. Tehran n’yo naman ako.”

May tatlong bagay lang akong gustong linawin, Sir. Una, hindi ko alam na hosts pala ng ‘Kilos Pronto’ sa PTV4 sina Ben at Erwin. Ottawa kayo nang tawa d’yan! Totoo po ‘yan. Ang tanging alam ko lang ay Rated Fiji ang show.

Pangalawa, kahapon ko lang din nalaman na hindi lang pala 20 million pesos ang napuntang pera sa kanila. Kahit Dublin mo ‘yan, kulang pa rin. Alam mo ba kung magkano? Tripoli!

And lastly, hindi ko po alam na kapatid ko pala sila. Kenya believe it? Ako rin, ‘di makapaniwala.  I’m sure sasabihin ng ibang tao, echoserang Prague ako. I am just telling the truth Mr. President.

Sanga pala, Yemen din lang at binigyan n’yo ako ng chance magpaliwanag, makikiusap na rin Sana’a ako na ‘wag na kaming kasuhang magkakapatid. Malusutan lang namin ito, tatanawin po namin ‘yang isang malaking utang na Louvre.

Masakit pong lisanin ang tanggapang pinaglingkuran ko sa nakalipas na dalawang taon. At lalong masakit na mawalay sa ‘yo. The truth is I don’t wanna Libya, Tatay Digong.

But I have Togo. Hindi mo na ako kailangang ipagtabuyan. Ako na po ang kusang aalis. Consider this decision a Korea move.

Paalam… mahal na Pangulo.

Isang malaking karangalan po na ikaw ay mapaglingkuran. Sa aking pag-alis, sana ay iyong tandaan: You are my one and only President… Mayon at kailanman.

Swede dreams!

Sincerely,
Wanda Tulfo-Teo

DEPARMENT OF TULFORISM

3 05 2018

THE DEPARTMENT of Tourism headed by Wanda Tulfo-Teo spent more than 60 million pesos for ad placements on Tulfo-Teo brothers’ blocktime program on government station PTV4. Tulfo-Teo insisted there was “no conflict of interest” because the contract was between PTV4 and his brothers’ program. BUT official documents released by the Commission on Audit revealed otherwise. Apparently, Tulfo-Teo’s department “specifically required” PTV4 to “buy segments” on her brothers’ show. Unbelievable.

Ang sinungaling ay kapatid ng broadcaster.

Untitled
Samantala, sa isang radio program…

Tulfo: Ang init talaga ng panahon mga Ka-DDs. Son of a bitch, pinagpapawisan talaga ako. Now you know why I always wear shades. Because, temperature dude! The mercury keeps rising. Anyway, marami na tayong naghihintay na callers. Let’s do some public service bitches. Geez, this weather! Caller No. 1, hello?

Caller: Idol, hello po.

T: What’s your name and how may I help you?

C: Nestor ho ng Pasig. Ano bang dapat gawin kapag abusado ang opisyal ng gobyerno?

T: Well, that’s despicable. But can you be specific bro? You know, give some details so I could analyze your situation better.

C: Eh kasi idol, gumastos ng 60 million pesos, wala namang napala ang publiko.

T: Medyo mahina ang boses mo bro. Can you please speak a littler louder?

C: KASI PO GUMASTOS NG 60 MILLION PESOS ‘YONG DEPARTMENT NG GOBYERNO, WALA NAMANG NAPALA ANG PUBIKO. KUMITA LANG ANG MGA KAPATID NG OPISYAL. ANONG DAPAT GAWIN ‘PAG GANUN?

T: You know what, I think we’re having some technical difficulties here. Mr. Engineer, this needs some fixing.

C: Hello idol? Hello! Naririnig kita. Malinaw naman ang dating mo sa akin ah.

T: We’ll be right back.

* * * * *

T: Salamat nga pala sa engineers natin here sa station. Mabilis naayos ang problema natin sa phone line. I salute you boys. Now, let’s talk to caller No. 2. Hello… ?

C: Hello po! Si Maricar po ‘to ng Caloocan.

T: Wow! What a sweet name, Maricar! Reminds me of this pretty classmate of mine in elementary. I was so enamored with her. And mind you, the feeling was mutual. She was into me, too. Maybe it was my killer smile or perhaps my pair of sunglasses. Yes mga ka-DDS, bata pa lang ko, naka-shades na. Ain’t that cool? O, Maricar, anong maitutulong ko?

C: Idol, may isusumbong sana ako.

T: Of course! That’s precisely the reason why I created this show. I wanna help the less fortunate sector of the society. Sinong isusumbong mo?

C: Idol, galit ka sa nepotism sa gobyerno ‘di ba?

T: Of course! Noon ko pa sinasabi. Even my brothers have been vocal against it. Kapag nasa gobyerno ka, hindi mo dapat pinapaboran ang mga kamag-anak mo. Kakapalan ng mukha ‘yon. That’s just despicable my dear listeners.

C: Kilala mo ba si Wanda Teo na gumastos ng 60 million pesos for ads na napunta sa kanyang mga kapatid?

T: What’s the name again, Maricar?

C: Wanda Teo.

T: Sino ‘yon? Let me gather some info and then I’ll get back to you. Next caller please.

* * * * *

T: Mga Ka-DDS, remember this. Our program has always been fair. Both sides pinakikinggan natin. Hindi puwedeng kesyo ikaw ang nagreklamo, tama ka lagi. We’re only after the truth here.

Caller No. 3… na ayaw raw ibigay ang pangalan… hello ma’am? Nandiyan ka pa ba sa line? Sorry, pinaghintay ka namin.

C: PUTANG INA MO BEN. SABI N’YO, WALANG SASABIT. SABI N’YO, MAAAYOS ITO NG PTV4. SABI N’YO HINDI ITO LALABAS SA MEDIA. PUTANG INA N’YO. PATI PUWESTO KO NALALAGAY SA ALANGANIN NGAYON. PINAGRE-RESIGN TULOY AKO. PUTANG INA TALAGA. AYUSIN N’YO ‘TO! PUTANG INA N’YO. (Ibinagsak ang telepono.)

T: I’m sorry dear listeners. May nakapasok na prank caller. You know naman the millennials ‘di ba? Mahilig talaga sa prank calls ‘tapos maya-maya naka-upload na. Mali eh. Hindi nila ‘to dapat ginagawa. That’s just despicable! Magbababalik po ang ating programa.

* * * * *

C: Idol, si Nikki ‘to ng Pasay.

T: Nikki bro, kumusta d’yan sa Pasay? I was there the other night lang kasi we raided a gambling den. Almost midnight na ‘yon. Napakadilim sa area. Kulang na kulang sa pailaw. Mayor Calixto, tarantad… gumising ka naman. Konting sipag pa.

C: Idol, naka-shades ka ba during the raid?

T: May problema ka ba sa shades ko?

C: Wala naman idol. May gusto nga pala akong ireklamo dito sa Pasay.

T: Go!

C: ‘Yung local DSWD dito, namigay ng grocery bags sa barangay namin. ‘Yong isang tauhan nila, sa halip na isa lang ang ibigay bawat bahay, tatlo ang ibinigay sa isa naming kapitbahay.

T: Well, that’s just despicable my dear listeners. Nagtanong ka ba sa DSWD? Bakit daw ganun?

C: Sabi ng tambay dito, kapatid pala niya ang nakatira dun. Ang kapal ng mukha ‘di ba? Kesyo kapatid pinaboran. Putang ina ‘di ba?

T: Wait…

C: Eh kasi dapat walang pinapaboran ang hayup na iyon eh. Putang ina talaga.

T: Teka lang! Can we not be judgmental here Nikki? You don’t know the real story. Hearsay lang ‘yan. Baka naman may valid reason kung bakit tatlong grocery bags ang ibinigay. Let’s give that DSWD personnel a chance to defend himself and clariy the issue. Kesyo pinaboran, masama agad? ‘Wag ganyan. That’s just despicable.
Nikki, are you still there?
Hello?
Nandiyan ka pa ba?
‘Tang in… Binabaan na tayo ng telepono.

* * * * *

T: And we’re back. Before talking to our next caller, I’d like to greet some friends nga pala d’yan sa Customs. They’re listening right now. Mga lodi, what’s up? And also, to Ms Kat De Castro who’s also a regular listener, thank you for the support.

Now, we have Caller No. 5, Mr. John Robert Powers. Wow, I think we’ve got a tourist on the phone. Just goes to prove how effective those DOT commercials are. Mr. John Robert Powers… hello sir? Welcome to the preygram.

C: ‘TANG INANG FAKE ACCENT ‘YAN. NAKAKASUKA. TANG INA. (Ibinagsak ang phone.)

T: Well, I’m not going to dignify that personal attack. That’s just despicable my dear listeners. We’re not on the same level moron! Nandito ako, nandito lang kayo. Mga ulol!

Sa production staff natin na sumasagot sa mga tawag, how many times do I have to tell you to strictly screen the calls?!? PAANO NAKALUSOT ANG PUTANG INANG ‘YUN? SCREEN THE FUCKING CALLS BITCHES! You guys better shape up or risk losing your fucking job. Consider this my first and last warning. We’ll be right back after a few words from our sponsor – the DOT. 

* * * * *

T: Our last caller, si Buboy Bituin ng San Juan. May irereklamong kapitbahay na ubod daw nang tsismosa. Well, that’s just despicable my dear listeners. Sir Buboy, hello po? How can we help you?

C: Idol, hindi ko na matiis ang tsismosa kong kapitbahay. Nitong mga nakaraang araw, puro tsismis ang inaatupag.

T: Are you the subject of the chism? I mean, kayo ba ang chinichismis?

C: Hindi naman idol kaya lang

T: Eh hindi naman pala ikaw ang ichinichismis, bakit nagrereklamo ka?

C: Binging-bingi na kasi ako sa mga

T: Wait. Just because nabibingi ka na sa bunganga niya, nagrereklamo ka na? I find that a bit weird sir. Kung ‘di ka agrabyado, anong basehan ng reklamo? I’m sorry. As I have said, we’re just being fair. To be honest, baka kahit sa barangay, hindi ka manalo. By the way sir, what was the chismis all about ba?

C: Sabi niya kasi… ‘yong Dep’t. of Tourism daw, gumastos ng more than 60 million for ads sa Channel 4. Ayaw ko ngang maniwala. ‘Tapos ang more than 60 million pesos na ‘yon, napunta pala sa kapatid ng DOT Secretary. Ilang araw na niyang ‘kinukuwento sa akin ‘to.

T: SO, ANO PANG HINIHINTAY MO? IDEMANDA MO  NA ANG PUTANG INANG ‘YAN. YOU WERE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT:  MALI ANG GINAGAWA NIYA. DON’T WORRY, PASASAMAHAN KITA SA STAFF KO. IDEMANDA MO ‘YAN BUKAS NA BUKAS DIN. THAT’S JUST DESPICABLE MY DEAR LISTENERS!

THE KRIS AQUINO SHOW

23 04 2018

limits
krisaquino I’ve had ENOUGH. As a mom of two loving and well-mannered kids, kailangang magsalita na ako dahil kinabukasan na nila ang at stake. I’m ready to be bashed. Sige lang. But I am an honest taxpayer of this country at millions ang ipinapasok ko sa kaban ng bayan kaya sasabihin ko kung ano ang nararamdaman ko sa mga nangyayari. I’m sorry Kuya Noy, I’m sorry Ate Pinky kung matigas ang ulo ko pero naniniwala akong dapat na akong magsalita. Bastusan na kasi talaga eh. Hindi ko alam kung bakit grabe ang inggit ng ibang tao. ‘Yung quo warranto petition sa Supreme Court, may justices na very public ang pagbatikos kay CJ Sereno pero never sila nag-inhibit. Alam naman nilang through impeachment lang puwedeng maalis ang Chief Justice pero deadma sila sa sinasabi ng Constitution. Ang kakapal ng mukha ‘di ba? Lalo na ‘yong isang babaeng Justice. Gosh, ramdam na ramdam mo ang inggit sa katawan. Kailangan yatang paliguan ng Ariel Antibac. Sa mga ‘di nakakaalam, ang roots ng family namin ay sa Fujian, China. Pero nasasaktan ako everytime na nakababasa ng balita na halos ipamigay na ni PRRD ang mga isla ng Pilipinas sa Beijing. Mas nakakaloka ‘yong walang pumapalag sa supporters niya. Oo lang nang oo sa lahat ng ginagawa niya. #zombies

Isa pang nakaka-bother itong recount for VP. My goodness, obvious naman ang goal nila ‘di ba? Iluklok ang anak ng diktador. Nakakaloka. Hindi pa naibabalik ang mga ninakaw ng pamilya nila, babalik na naman. ‘Yong panganay na tatakbong senador, may pinag-viral na French lessons pa. Nakakasuka. Poque-poque talaga! Hindi ko sila kinakaya.

This morning, lumapit sa akin si Bimby habang nag-i-Internet gamit ang PLDT Home Fibr and showed me something, ‘Mom, Marawi is so beautiful na. Look. Let’s go there.” Unang tingin ko pa lang, alam kong fake news agad; gawa-gawa lang ng keyboard warriors ng gov’t. I mean, everyday nababasa ng mga anak ko ang ganyang kasinungalingan. Sa palagay n’yo ba, tatahimik na lang ako? Kapag mga anak ko na ang biniktima n’yo, lalaban at lalaban ako. #lookwhatyoumademedo

Gusto ko pa sanang magsalita about big time drug lords na pinalaya ng gobyernong ito, sa crackdown sa mga kritiko, pag-atake sa free press ‘tsaka ‘yong nangyayaring pagpatay sa mahihirap na Filipino pero pinigilan ako ni Kuya Noy. So what I’m gonna do is padadalhan ko na lang ng Chowking lauriat and Nacho Bimby ang mga na-orphan dahil sa war on drugs ni PRRD.

Sa mga Ka-DDs na mamba-bash sa akin, I don’t care. Kahit sipa-sipain at sampal-sampalain n’yo pa ko, wala akong pakialam. May Ever Bilena naman akong magagamit para i-conceal ang mga pasa ko.

Sanga pala, I was watching Rated K kanina and saw a feature on James and his son with Michela Cazzola. Soooo cute. Kamukha ni James ‘yong bata. Ang malas naman. Aha-ha-ha. And I heard, pregnant na naman si Michela. Congratulations!!! In fairness, nakadalawa ka. Ako, nakaisa lang. Aha-ha-ha! But seriously, I am happy for them. Sabi ko nga kay James, pwede niyang hiramin si Bimby anytime para makalaro ng kapatid niya. Sa totoo lang, nagtatampo na nga si Bimby kasi nakakalimutan na niyang dumalaw. Busy yata si James sa PBA at sa negosyo niya but I understand. At least, nag-effort akong sabihan siya na bukas ang pintuan naming mag-ina sa pagdalaw niya.

Kay Korina, nagtatampo ako sa ‘yo girl. I campaigned pa naman for Mar pero bakit si James may feature, ako wala. Ahahaha Joke lang. Teka, tatawagan ko nga si Jessica. i-KMJS na ‘yan! Aha-ha-ha! Biro lang. I have to say this though: winner ka sa pic na ‘to Ate Koring! Hindi kita nakilala. Akala ko si Ivy Violan ka! Aha-ha-ha!

Pahabol: On Wednesday, start na ng shoot namin for my comeback movie sa Star Cinema. Gosh, I’m excited na to work with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto. Hindi ko pa masyadong kilala ‘yong Joshua pero he’s charming naman, so keri na. Sa totoo lang, na-miss ko ang pagtili sa movie, promise! Sana kayo rin. Sa mga nakalimot na, I’ll help you remember. Ganito ang atake ko sa eksena. Kapag takot na takot: Aaaaaaaaahhh! Kapag galit na galit: Aaaaaaaaahhh! Kapag gulat na gulat: Aaaaaaaaahhh! At kapag super kilig: Aaaaaaaaahhh! Gosh! Hindi ko kinakaya ang versatility ko. Winner ‘di ba! Aha-ha-ha!

I can’t wait to earn millions again para millions din ang maibayad ko sa gobyernong ito. Kaya please lang. Lumalaki na ang mga anak ko. Umayos kayo. Ayaw kong malagay sa peligro ang buhay nila dahil sa mga walanghiyang policies n’yo. As a mom, ako ang unang magtatanggol sa aking mga anak kapag feeling ko naaagrabyado sila. #labanlang

Sa mga haters, I love you. Chill. Pa-deliver na lang kayo ng Chowking halo-halo.

And to everyone who follows me on Facebook, IG, and Twitter… alam n’yo na! Love, love, love palagi. #aaahhhhhhh

EXCLUSIVE: VITALIANO AGUIRRE’S RESIGNATION LETTER

6 04 2018

AguiirePDI

April 5, 2018

HIS EXCELLENCY RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE
President, Republic of the Philippines
Malacañan Palace, Manila

Dear Mr. President,

Una kong narinig noong Linggo ng Pagkabuhay ang balitang balak mo akong sibakin sa puwesto. Aaminin ko, ikinagulat ko ito. Kaagad kong tinanong si Bong Go kung totoo ang balita ngunit sinabi naman niyang walang siyang alam tungkol dito. Umasa akong ito ay tsismis lamang. Sa katunayan, nag-participate pa ako sa Easter Egg Hunt kasama ang aking mga apo. Wala akong nakitang Easter egg. Kinabahan ako. Masamang pangitain yata ito. Nanatiling positibo ang aking pananaw.

Ngunit noong Miyerkules, ibinalita ng Philippine Star ang diumano’y nakaambang pagsipa mo sa akin bilang kalihim ng Department of Justice. Sa loob-loob ko, baka nga totoo. Para akong pinagsakluban ng langit at lupa. Tumayo lahat ng buhok sa aking katawan. (Hindi pala lahat.)

Kinagabihan, nagsimba ako at pormal na humingi ng sign kay Lord.

“Panginoon, dapat ko bang unahan ang pagpapatalsik sa akin? Give me a sign, Lord.”

Pagkasabi ko nito, biglang tumunog ang cellphone ng aking katabi. Ang ring tone: ‘Hayaan Mo Sila’ ng Ex Battalion. Napaindak ako Mr. President. Hindi mo naitatanong, ito ang lagi kong pinakikinggan sa Spotify. Ito na nga siguro ang sign na hinihintay ko.

Labag man sa aking kalooban, nagpasya akong sulatin ang resignation letter na ito. Mas masakit kasi kung mababasa ko pa sa Inquirer at Rappler ang headline na, “Duterte sacks Aguirre.” Ayaw ko silang bigyan ng dahilan upang magsaya.

With this letter, I hereby respectfully tender my resignation, Mr. President. Ngunit bago ko tuluyang iwan ang tanggapang aking pinaglingkuran, nais kong isa-isahin ang aking mga nagawa sa nakalipas na isang taon at walong buwan:

Naipakulong ko si Sen. Leila De Lima kahit walang ebidensya. Ako lang ang makakagawa nito.

Ibinasura ko ang kaso laban kina Peter Lim, Peter Co, Kerwin Espinosa (na umaming drug lord pero feeling ko nagbibiro lang talaga), at iba pang high-profile drug personalities. Bakit ba? Ipinapatupad ko lang ang batas. ‘Pag walang ebidensya, ibasura! (Siyempre, exception to the rule ‘yong kay De Lima. Tama ba ako, Mr. President?)

Ang utak sa pork barrel scam na si Janet Lim Napoles, tinanggap natin sa Witness Protection Program ng pamahalaan. Ganyan kabait ang ating gobyerno. Hindi lang biktima at saksi ang tinutulungan kundi pati mga kawatan!

Dalawang tauhan ko sa Bureau of Immigration ang kinasuhan ng plunder dahil sa pang-e-extort sa negosyanteng si Jack Lam. Muntik na akong madawit dito pero nalusutan ko ang isyu. Hindi ba achievement ito?

Ang kasong murder laban kay Supt. Marvin Marcos na inakusang pumaslang kay Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando Espinosa at sa mga tauhan nito, naibaba natin sa homicide. Wala akong pakialam sa findings ng NBI na rubout ang nangyari. Pulis o drug suspects: kanino ba talaga kayo kampi?

Sa kaso ng 6.4 billion-peso shabu shipment na nasabat ng mga awtoridad, isa lang ang nakasuhan: si Mark Taguba. Sa aking mga kritiko, ‘wag na kayong makuda. Ano bang gusto n’yo: may nakasuhan o wala?

Mr. President, bawat isa sa mga nagawa kong ito ay inayunan mo.

Bawat isa sa mga ito ay wala kang naging reklamo — kaya’t labis ang pagtataka ko kung bakit gusto mo pa akong sibakin sa puwesto.

Kulang pa ba? Nasaan ang hustisya?

Nagtatanong lang. ‘Wag ka sanang magagalit.

Sakali mang tanggapin mo ang pagbibitiw kong ito, nais kong ipaalam sa ‘yo na handa pa rin akong maglingkod sa gobyerno. Paalala lang po, malapit nang magretiro si Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales. Alam po n’yo ang number ko. Bahala na kayo. [Pwede nga rin pala ako sa Senado. Kumpleto na ba ang slate n’yo?]

Good luck mahal na Pangulo! Thank you very much.

I remain,

Your fraternity brother,

VITALIANO N. AGUIRRE II

IN THIS CORNER

16 03 2018

dutertefist
PNP CHIEF Bato de la Rosa said the dismissal of charges filed against big-time drug lords angered his boss, Rodrigo Duterte who punched a wall in Malacañang. “Namaga ang kamay n’ya sa galit,” Bato added. That’s what you call a ‘punchline.’

Did he or did he not? In a series of ambush interviews, Duterte gave conflicting answers.

Reporter: Sir, totoo bang sinuntok n’yo ang wall sa palasyo sabi ni General Bato?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Dahil ba nadismis ang kaso laban sa mga big-time drug lord?

Duterte: Hindi! Dahil tinambakan ng San Miguel ang Ginebra sa Game 4. Tang ina. Nanood pa naman si Pareng Jawo tapos tambak. Yawa!

* * * * *

Reporter: Mr. President, totoo bang sinuntok mo ang pader sa Malacañang?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Dahil ba dinismiss ang kaso laban sa mga big-time drug lord?

Duterte: In a way.

Reporter: Paano pong “in a way?” Hindi ba nagalit kayo kasi nadismis ang kaso nila?

Duterte: Hindi! Nagalit ako kasi wala na silang kaso. Ako, meron pa sa ICC. Pisti!

* * * * *

Reporter: Mr. President, sabi ni General Bato namaga raw ang kamay mo dahil sinuntok mo ang pader sa Malacañang.

Duterte: Tama!

Reporter: Nagalit daw kayo sa pagkakadismis ng kaso ng big time drug lords. Tama rin po ba?

Duterte: Mali. Nagalit ako dahil nag-trend sa Twitter noong isang araw ang #DuterteDuwag. Nag-withdraw lang sa ICC, duwag agad? SAGUTIN MO AKO: Kapag nag-withdraw ba sa ICC, duwag?

Reporter: In a way Sir.

Duterte:

Reporter: No pala Sir. No. Next question na po…

* * * * *

Reporter: Sir, totoo bang sinuntok mo ang pader sa palasyo?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Totoo bang namaga ang kamay mo dahil sa pagsuntok?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Totoo bang nagalit kayo sa pagkakadismis ng kaso laban sa big time drug lords?

Duterte: Ba’t naman napunta sa drug lords ang usapan? Suntok at pader lang ang topic natin. ‘Wag kang lumayo.

* * * * *

Reporter: Mr. President, totoo bang sinuntok mo ang pader sa palasyo?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Totoo bang namaga ang kamay mo dahil sa pagsuntok?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Totoo bang nagalit ka dahil nadismis ang kaso laban sa big-time drug lords?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: INUULIT KO: Totoo bang nagalit ka dahil nadismis ang kaso laban sa big-time drug lords?

Duterte:

Reporter: Naninigurado lang Sir.

* * * * *

Reporter: Sir, totoo bang namaga ang kamay mo matapos mong suntukin ang pader sa palasyo?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon.

Reporter: Totoo bang nagalit ka raw kasi nadismis ang kaso laban kay Kerwin Espinosa?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon!

Reporter: Totoo rin bang nagalit ka kasi nadismis ang kaso laban sa kumpare mong si Peter Lim?

Duterte: Kay Kerwin na muna tayo mag-focus. Nananahimik ang ibang tao, ‘wag mong idamay.

* * * * *

Reporter: Sir, totoo bang sinuntok mo ang pader sa palasyo dahil sa sobrang galit?

Duterte: Totoo ‘yon!

Reporter: Totoo bang namaga ang kamay mo dahil sa pagkakasuntok sa pader?

Duterte: Totoo rin ‘yon.

Reporter: Tingin kayo sa camera sir ‘tapos ipakita mo ang namamaga mong kamay.

Duterte: Kayo talaga, ‘di na mabiro. Kailan ba kayo masasanay? Next question na nga.

2018: MGA HULA AT BABALA

29 12 2017

HERE’S what’s in store for you in 2018 – Year of the Dog. Happy New Year everyone!

1RatRAT: 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960
Kung hindi ka mag-iingat, mahuhulihan ka ng droga sa kalagitnaan ng taon. Kung mahirap ka at hindi kilala, mabubulok ka sa kulungan. Kung artista ka at sikat ang angkan, wala kang problema: madidismis ang iyong kaso. Pero hindi pa huli ang lahat. Kung ikaw ay mahirap, may time ka pang pasukin ang showbiz. Good luck!

Health: Mag-reduce.
Love: Wala ka pa ring swerte. Manalamin.

1OxOX: 2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961
Wala pa ring pagbabago sa iyo sa darating na taon. Mas magiging aktibo ka pa nga sa pamba-bash sa social media. Ang cheap mo talaga!

Health: Sukatin ang waistline. Ihanda ang sarili sa matutuklasan.
Love: Kung hindi na kayo masaya sa isa’t isa, you both deserve it.

1Ti
TIGER: 2010, 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962
Ilang beses kang mali-late sa trabaho dahil tuwing sasakay ka sa MRT, masisiraan ito. Mapipilitan kang tanungin ang sarili mo – Sino ba talagang malas: ako o ang gobyerno?

Health: Walking is good for your body. Sa ayaw mo man o sa gusto, mapapadalas ang paglalakad mo –  sa riles ng tren.
Love: Kung hindi ka na happy, let go. Sayang lang ang gastos mo.

1RabbitRABBIT: 2011, 1999, 1987, 1975, 1963
Sisikat ka ngayong 2018. Magti-trend ang isang video kung saan makikitang minumura mo ang nakagitgitang taxi driver.

Health: Magpa-check ng BP regularly.
Love: Mabait lang talaga siya sa ‘yo. Hanggang doon lang ‘yon. Huwag bigyang-kulay.

1DragDRAGON: 2012, 2000, 1988, 1976, 1964
Ito ang luckiest sign. Ngayong 2018, lalo kang susuwertehin kung magpapalagay ka ng dragon tattoo sa iyong likod. Makipagkaibigan sa mga taong ang pangalan ay ‘Paolo,’ ‘Charlie, ‘Tan,’ ‘Kenneth, ‘Dong,’ ‘Peter,’ ‘Lim,’ o ‘Nani’ upang kumita nang malaki.

Health: Huwag araw-arawin ang ‘cheat day.’
Love: Ilang years ka nang single, ‘di ka pa ba sanay?!

1SNSNAKE: 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965
Palihim kang pag-uusapan ng iyong Facebook friends dahil lagi kang nag-shi-share at nagla-like ng fake news ng mga pro-Duterte bloggers.  Huwag gullible. [Para mas harsh: Huwag tanga.]

Health: Kumunsulta sa psychologist.
Love: Mas masaya ka kung nag-iisa. ‘Yan ang totoo.

1HORHORSE: 2014, 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966
Posibleng masangkot ka sa anomalya sa iyong opisina. Pero ‘wag mag-alala. Kung sa Duterte government ka nagtatrabaho, baka ilipat ka lang sa ibang pwesto. ‘Wag mawalan ng pag-asa.

Health: Hindi nakakabawas ng timbang ang pagpisil sa stress ball. Mag-exercise ka!
Love: Be the one that got away. Maiba naman.

1shpGOAT: 2015, 2003, 1991, 1979, 1967
Matapos mag-Starbucks, mawawala ka for 48 hours. Walang maghahanap sa ‘yo.

Health: Hindi uubra ang “After 6” diet sa ‘yo kung maghapon ka namang lumalamon.
Love: Ipa-check-up ang puso mo. Pagod na pagod na kasi ito sa katitibok sa taong hindi naman pumapansin sa ‘yo.

1monkMONKEY: 2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968
Maganda ang pasok ng taon. Dahil sa nilagdaang Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law, tataas ang sweldo. Ang bad news: wala ka pa ring trabaho. Dasal lang. Dasal lang talaga.

Health: Ok sana ang ginagawa mong pagtakbo. ‘Yun nga lang, laging sa ref ang punta mo.
Love: Mag-focus na lang sa mga pamangkin. At least, they’ll love you back.

1roosROOSTER: 2017, 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969
Malaki ang posibilidad na mapaaway ka na naman sa social media dahil sa iyong pananaw sa pulitika. Bawasan ang pagiging patola.

Health: Huwag magbasa ng online comments para hindi ma-stress.
Love: Makikilala mo na finally ang taong mamahalin mo. Ang tanong: mamahalin ka kaya niya?

1DogDOG: 2018, 2006, 1994, 1982, 1970
Makakahanap ka ng trabaho ngayong 2018. Aalukin kang maging keyboard warrior ng Duterte government. In short, troll. Nasa sa ‘yo na kung alin ang pipiliin mo: pera o prinsipyo.

Health: Kapansin-pansin talaga ang double chin mo. ‘Di ka ba naco-conscious?
Love: Darating din ‘yan. Siguro, mga 12 years pa. Be patient.

1PigPIG: 2019, 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971
Mag-aaway kayo sa social media ng iyong ama. Feeling mo, ito na ang chance mong makilala ng masa. Pero walang papansin sa away n’yong dalawa. Sabihin mo sa tatay mo, maging vice mayor o drug smuggler muna siya.

Health: Hindi ka tumataba dahil sa suot mong shirt. Mataba ka lang talaga. Mag-diet.
Love: Matagal na siyang nakapag-move on. Ikaw kaya, kailan?

“Duterte has made a mockery of rule of law in his country. While he is not your typical corrupt leader, he has empowered corruption in an innovative way. His death squads have allegedly focused on criminals but, in fact, are less discriminating. He has empowered a bully-run system of survival of the fiercest. In the end, the Philippines is more corrupt, more cruel, and less democratic.”
~Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project on its decision to name Duterte ‘Person of the Year’

TAPANG AT MALASAKIT: SA AKIN, SA IYO’T SA LAHAT

27 10 2017

1TMjpg
EARLIER this week, a coalition of Duterte diehards was launched in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Led by Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, the ‘Tapang at Malasakit Alliance for Duterte the Philippines’ – in a pledge, called for an end to “destructive politicking”. The title of the pledge was “Note To Ourselves.”

In her speech, Sara Duterte said, “Okay lang siguro if mag-away dito sa loob. Pero ‘pag reputasyon na ng bansa natin ang nasisira sa mga kapitbahay natin, mali po ‘yun.” To which, Presidente Duterte said, “Nang-aano ka eh! Inaano ba kita?”

Overheard at the launch:

Imee Marcos: O, Mayor Lani, nandito ka rin pala. Nasaan si Alan?

Lani Cayetano: Nandiyan lang. Nag-iikot.

Imee: So bati-bati na tayo?

Lani: Huh? Nag-away-away ba tayo?

Imee: Helloooo! ‘Di ba noong vice presidential debates, tinira-tira ni Alan ang pamilya namin? ‘Di mo ba natatandaan?

Lani: Paano ko matatandaan eh ang bata-bata ko pa no’n!?

Imee:

Lani: Ay! Sorry naman, nagamit mo na nga pala ang excuse na ‘yon.

Take 2…

Imee: O, Mayor Lani, nandito ka rin pala. Nasaan si Alan?

Lani: Nandiyan lang. Nag-iikot.

Imee: So bati-bati na tayo?

Lani: Bati-bati? Nag-away-away ba tayo?

Imee: Hellllllooo?! ‘Di ba noong vice presidential debates, hindi tinigilan ni Alan ang pamilya namin? Paulit-ulit niya kaming tinawag na magnanakaw at human rights violator! Magnanakaw at human rights violator. Magnanakaw at human rights violator!

Lani: Tama, I remember that. Wait, hindi ba totoong magnanakaw at human rights violator kayo?

Imee: Excuse me! Check your facts! Hindi kami human rights violator. Hellllloooo!

* * * * *

Imee: Uy, Alan! You’re here pala. Small world.

Alan Peter: I know, right? Who would’ve thought na magiging magkakampi pa tayo?

Imee: True. Nakakaloka ‘no?

Alan: Just a year ago, isa lang akong talunang VP candidate na naghihintay ng swerte. Ngayon, foreign affairs secretary na! Salamat sa pagkawala ni Yasay.

Imee: Pareho pala kayo ni Bongbong. Just a year ago, isa lang siyang talunang VP candidate na naghihintay ng swerte. Ngayon, magiging bise presidente na.

Alan:

Imee: Salamat sa pagkawala ni Andy Bautista!

* * * * *

Erap: Imee, kumusta? ‘Buti naimbitahan ka.

Imee: Uy, Ninong Erap, kayo pala ‘yan!

Erap: Siguro, we have something in common kaya tayo invited.

Imee: Ahmm, tapang?

Erap: Parang hindi.

Imee: Malasakit?

Erap: ‘Di ko sure.

Imee: Plunder?

Erap: Tarantado! Anong alam mo sa plunder eh ang bata-bata mo pa no’n?

Imee: True!

Commemorative
The Philippine Postal Corporation issued a commemorative stamp for the 100th birth anniversary of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. Thank you Philpost! Martial Law victims can’t wait to spit on it.

Not Running
During the launch of Tapang at Malasakit Alliance, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte vehemently denied reports she’s running for a national post in 2019. Even her father was like, “’Yan din ang sabi ko noon ‘day!”

Quitting
Reports say Duterte’s eldest son, controversial Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo ‘Pulong’ Duterte will retire from politics in 2019 “to focus on his family.” In response, the Davao Group said, “Salamat Kapamilya!”

Demonized
Defending his anti-drug war policy, President Duterte said, “I have been demonized” – drawing a howl of protest from the demon itself who said, “On the contrary, it was I who was Dutertefied!”

Smuggled 
Myanmar had seized $4.6 million worth of smuggled crystal methamphetamine or shabu. Myanmar President Htin Kyaw was quick to deny rumors his eldest son, Pulong Kyaw was involved in the smuggling of the shabu shipment.

Drug Lords
Revealing! A government witness has tagged Mar Roxas and Sen. Franklin Drilon as drug operators in the Visayas. Even more revealing, the witness says Roxas and Drilon are using the code names Tita Nani and Pulong in drug transactions.

1Andanar
Iyot Man
Mocking officials of the European Union who are critical of the Duterte administration, Communications Sec. Martin Andanar said, “’Yong maiingay na palaiyot, ang problema sa kanila, hanggang ingay lang sila, wala namang napatunayan. Maiingay sila kasi kulang sila sa iyot.” A party-list solon described Andanar as “desperate.” Another called it, “shameful.” Duterte described him as “a fast learner.”

Joke
On radio, Martin Andanar defended his distasteful comments and insisted he was just joking. Which was totally unnecessary since his mere presence was in itself a bigger joke.

GOD KNOWS HUDAS NOT MODERNIZE

21 10 2017

1marawi
ISNILON HAPILON and Omar Maute are dead. A salute to our soldiers! That’s the good news: Marawi has been liberated from terrorists. The bad news is the country has yet to be liberated from Duterte.

President Duterte said martial law in Mindanao would not be lifted “until the last terrorist is taken out.” That’s not a problem, Mr. President. You just stay in Manila; don’t go to Mindanao.

Modernization
President Duterte warned jeepney operators of a crackdown if they don’t modernize their units by the end of the year. “January! ‘Pag ‘di kayo na-modernize, umalis kayo,” said Duterte who once gave himself six months to curb drugs and criminality or he would resign.

1Jeepn
Old jeepneys emit too much carbon dioxide and put the health of Filipinos at risk, according to Duterte – an old president who emits too much vitriol and puts the entire nation at risk.

Scary
Halloween is the time of the year when a number of people wear masks and costumes to hide their true selves, hoping to win the top prize. It’s also called elections.

People are now talking about Halloween parties. In Davao, President Duterte’s grandchildren have an annual tradition. They scare their Lolo Digong by wearing menacing costumes. For this year’s Halloween party, Duterte’s grandchildren will come as human bank waivers.

Bad Weather
Super-typhoon Paolo is the latest weather disturbance to enter the Philippines. Many Filipinos are not aware though that Paolo has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. Even President Duterte never spoke about it. If super-typhoon Paolo makes a landfall, experts fear the damage to agriculture and infrastructure may reach 6.4B pesos.

Untitled
Transferred
Reports say Lorraine Badoy-Partosa has been appointed undersecretary of the presidential communications office. The controversial Ka-DDS used to be an assistant secretary at the Social Welfare department. The transfer is hardly surprising since it’s public knowledge that Lorraine’s only concern is the welfare of Rodrigo Duterte.

Graft Case
Former Caloocan City Mayor Recom Echeverri, who is facing nine counts of graft, refused to enter a plea on two counts. The court automatically made a plea on his behalf. It entered a plea of “not surprised.”

Losing Streak
The UST Growling Tigers are still winless in men’s basketball. They have been beaten nine straight times this season. Experts say if UST wants to BEAT its rivals, the coaching staff should hire members of the Aegis Jvris Fraternity.

1AegisJuris
Based on a detailed chat group log, members of the Aegis Jvris Fraternity intended to cover up the death of hazing victim Horatio Castillo III. Some 30 frat members in the chat group discussed how to conceal evidence; reach a settlement with Castillo’s parents, and find ways to explain to their wives and girlfriends why their balls suddenly went missing.

Unsafe
According to Safe Cities Index 2017, Manila is one of the least safe cities in the world. It ranked 55th out of 60 cities. At No. 1, Tokyo was named the safest city while Singapore came in second place prompting Alan Peter Cayetano to demand a recount.

Unsafe Indeed
A Miss Earth 2017 candidate was robbed in Manila. Her cellphone was snatched. The victim was identified as Polli Cannabis, Miss Belarus. Worse, when Miss Cannabis reported the incident to the police, she was asked to undergo a drug test.

DEAR CHARO: LIHAM MULA KAY RODRIGO

15 10 2017

Maalaala Mo Kaya
Episode No. 6.4B

“I read the condemnation of the European Union against me. I will tell them fuck you. Do not fuck with us! You leave my country in 24 hours. All of you! I repeat it, fuck you!”

(Before you continue, click this video for the “live” scoring. Wait for the music to start before reading.)

“May mga pagkakataon sa ating buhay na nakararamdam tayo ng matinding poot. Walang pagsidlan ang ating galit sa mga tao, bagay, o pangyayari sa ating paligid. Sa ganitong mga sandali, dapat bang pinipigil o mas dapat na ilabas natin ang ating tunay na damdamin? Paano natin lalabanan ang nakasanayang udyok na magmura, magbanta, manakit, o pumatay?

Magandang gabi mga Kapamilya. Sa espesyal na pang-anibersaryong handog ng ating programa, tampok ang kuwento ng isa nating kababayan na aminado mang galit sa ating himpilan ay patuloy pa rin naman sa panonood ng ating programa. Hindi ko alam kung siya ay tanga o ipokrito – pwede rin namang pareho.

Ang letter sender na ito ay itatago na lamang natin sa pangalang… Rodrigo. Narito ang kanyang kwento…

Dear Charo,

‘Tang ina mo! Matagal ko nang ipinadala ang sulat na ito pero ngayon mo lang babasahin?? Gago! Gumastos ako sa selyo sa post office kaya ‘wag mo akong gaguhin, ‘tang ina! Ginago na ako ng ABS-CBN noong eleksyon. ‘Di ako papayag na gaguhin ulit n’yo ngayon! Sabihin mo sa boss mong si Gabby Concepcion, gahaman siya sa pera, ‘tang ina niya!

O, ano pang hinihintay mo, ituloy mo na ang pagbabasa ng liham ko!

So ‘yon na nga Charo, hindi ko makontrol ang galit ko. Katulad last week, kumulo ang aking dugo nang mabasa ko ang headline na ito ng putang inang diyaryo ng mga Prieto:

1eu

Kaya nang mag-speech ako nang sumunod na araw, hindi ako nakapigil.

Putang ina n’yo EU, ang kapal ng mukha n’yong makialam sa mga patayan dito. Mga ipokrito! Fuck you! Fuck you! Fuck you! Lumayas kayo sa bansa ko – ngayon din! Fuck you!

Ganung level ang galit ko, Charo. Sukdulan kung sukdulan! ‘Tapos kinagabihan, nalaman ko, hindi pala officials ng EU ang minura ko. Mali pala ang na-feed sa aking info. Putang ina n’yo Inquirer, pahamak kayo. Fuck you! Magsasara din kayo tang ina n’yo!

Ang nakakatawa Charo, katulad ng dati, panic mode na naman si Abella. ‘Di alam kung paano ipaliliwanag ang sinabi ko. Ha-ha-ha ‘Di ba mukha na naman siyang tanga? Kaya mahal na mahal ko ‘yan eh. Kahit ilang beses kong gawing gago, nandiyan pa rin sa puwesto. Petmalu!

Ito nga pala ang sabi niya:

1e2u

Kahapon, may nagtanong din sa akin Charo: bakit daw tahimik si Alan Peter Cayetano ng DFA kahit minura-mura ko at pinalayas ang EU. Sagot ko: ‘Tang ina. Paano magsasalita ‘yon eh nagpapagaling pa ng lapnos after ng interview niya sa Al Jazeera? Hashtag burn! Konting pang-unawa naman mga lodi.

Akala ko, matatahimik na ako after ng isyu sa EU. Mali ako, Charo. Kinabukasan sa palasyo, may speech na naman ako. Eh mainit ang ulo ko dahil ‘di nag-flush ang tae ko. Tang ina, nagtapon kasi ng tissue sa inidoro si Honeylet kaya nagbara. Anyway, sabi ko sa speech ko: ‘Pag ‘di nagkaroon ng peace agreement sa Mindanao, malamang utusan na naman ni Hashim Salamat na mag-alsa ang mga rebeldeng Moro.

‘Tang ina! Pagbukas ko ng TV noong gabi, napanood ko sa news, 14 years na palang patay si Hashim Salamat. Pisting yawa! Pero ok lang, sabi ko. Ang importante, ‘yong mga Ka-DDS, paniwalang-paniwala.

Ba’t kaya sila ganun Charo? Bilib na bilib sila sa lahat ng sinasabi ko? Kahit magsinungaling pa ako, tinatanggap pa rin nila! Werrrrpa! Ha-ha!

Gusto ko nga palang magpasalamat sa Pulse Asia, Charo; otsenta porsiyento pa rin ang approval rating ko. Petmalu! Salamat mga lodi! Akalain mo ‘yon? Ilang linggong pinag-usapan ang Kian Delos Santos issue, na-expose ang kawalanghiyaan ng mga pulis ko, nanahimik ako sa 6.4B shabu, at nabisto ang kalokohan ni Pulong pero 80 percent pa rin ang aking rating? Anong klaseng tao ba kayo? Bobo? Hahaha Joke lang. Tang ina n’yo, mahal ko kayo.

Gusto ko ring umapela Charo sa mga Ka-DDS natin: Huwag kayong maniniwala sa SWS survey na nagsasabing bumagsak ang rating ko. Dilawan ‘yan! Kasama ‘yan ng Simbahan at ng mga Komunistang gustong magpabagsak sa akin. Pero hindi kayo magtatagumpay! Hawak ko sa bayag ang Senado. Hawak ko sa bayag ang mga kongresista. Hawak ko sa bayag ang Korte Suprema. Putang ina, kaya pala itong kamay ko, ang baho-baho na. Puro bayag ang hawak ko! Ha-ha-ha

‘Pag ‘di kayo tumigil sa plano n’yong destabilization, magdedeklara ako ng revolutionary government. Tang ina n’yo, gagawin ko talaga ‘yan! Oo! First time mangyayari sa kasaysayan ng mundo: isang lider na hawak sa bayag lahat ng sangay ng gobyerno ang magdedeklara ng rebolusyon laban mismo sa mga tao. Isang petmalung palakpak mga lodi!

Maiba ako Charo, alam kong nanonood si Inday Sara ngayon. Sabi niya sa putang inang Trillanes kahapon, “Prove to everybody that piece of shit paper of bank accounts you are waving around is not fake, Pinocchio. Ang babaeng Bisaya, hindi umaatras. Kayang-kaya kong makipag away.”

Salamat sa paghahamon ng away, Inday Sara. Anak nga kita. Fuck you, Pinocchio!

Bago ko tapusin ang aking liham, may request lang ako sa iyo Charo. At susundin mo ang request na ito kung ayaw mong ipasara ko ang istasyon n’yo. Ang gusto kong gumanap bilang Rodrigo sa MMK ay ‘yong kayang bigyang justice ang character ko. In short, hindi si Piolo. ‘Yong John Lloyd Cruz na lang siguro.

Sa mga kokontra, tang ina n’yo!

Hanggang dito na lamang Charo.

Sanga pala, ilang taon ka na ba Charo? Bakit parang may asim ka pa rin? Pasyal ka naman dito sa palasyo ‘pag wala si Honeylet. Ipagluluto kita ng masarap na longganisa.

Again, thank you sa pagsasadula ng buhay ko. Sigurado akong mataas ang rating nito.

Teka, pwede ba akong humula sa title ng episode? Gusto kong manalo ng load eh. Ibibigay ko sana kay Kitty.

Last na ito Charo, sa aking mga kritiko: fuck you! ‘Pag ako nagdeklara ng revolutionary government, todas kayong lahat, mga ‘tang ina n’yo. Fuck you!!!!

Walang galang,
Rodrigo

“Alam mo Rodrigo, hindi ko alam kung ano ang magiging reaksyon ko sa liham mo. At lalong hindi ko alam kung anong purpose o goal ng inilahad mong kuwento. Walang kwenta! Tang ina. Paulit-ulit ka! Pati sa mga katangahan mo, proud ka pa. Mabuti pa pumirma ka na lang ng bank waiver; hindi ‘yong puro ka mura at porma ‘king ina ka!

Pasensya na po sa mga nanonood na bata. Hindi na ako nakapagpigil.

Sa susunod na Sabado, isang kwentong may kabuluhan ang ihahatid namin sa inyo. Pasensya na po ulit kung puro mura ang napanood n’yo kanina. Dadagdagan na lang namin ang premyo ng makakahula sa title ng episode.

Ito po si Charo Santos, maraming salamat at magandang gabi, Kapamilya.

DELUSIONAL & UNFIT

6 05 2017

1Lopez
THE COMMISSION on Appointments or CA rejected the appointment of controversial Environment Secretary Gina Lopez. The figures were not even close. It was 8 for Gina Lopez and 16 million for CA members.

Lobby Money
Reacting to the CA’s rejection of the appointment of Gina Lopez, President Duterte said, “lobby money talks.” CA member Panfilo Lacson who rejected Lopez’s appointment said, Duterte’s remark was “a sweeping assault on the CA members’ integrity. What lobby money?” Gina Lopez supporters replied, “What integrity?”

Unfit
Lawmakers who rejected the appointment of Gina Lopez to the DENR described her as “unfit” and “acting as if she were above the law.” To be fair to Gina Lopez, she’s just taking her cue from the President.

“Na-ano Lang”
People are still talking about Tito Sotto’s “Na-ano lang” comment during the confirmation hearing for DSWD Sec. Judy Taguiwalo. On Instagram, Gian Sotto defended his father saying, “Alam ng Diyos kung ano ang nasa puso ng tatay ko.” To which, God reacted, “Actually, no. I don’t.”

A confident Gian Sotto added, “Alam kong malalampasan namin ito dahil kasama namin ang Diyos.” And Satan was like, “Be fair! Give credit where credit is due. Please lang!”

Delusional
A fish vendor died last weekend when the New People’s Army attacked several facilities of the Lapanday Foods Corporation in Davao City. A fuming Mayor Sara Duterte hit the Communist rebels saying they’re “delusional” and “living in an alternate universe.” In response, the NPA said, “Wrong! We’re not living in an alternate universe.”

Delusional II
According to Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, Communist rebels are “delusional people” who live in an “alternate universe.” The statement has fueled speculations the NPA rebels are on fentanyl, too.

Monsters
In a strongly worded statement, Inday Sara Duterte said the attacks of the New People’s Amy “should always remind us of the twistedness of an ideology and the monsters behind it, how they employ fear and terror in their attempt to cloak their insignificance and the obsolescence of their political belief.” The statement was titled, ‘Note to Dad.’

1BruceRiveraYout
No Endorser
Last May 2, Duterte fanatic and ‘Impeach Leni Movement’ leader Bruce Rivera claimed the impeachment complaint they drafted against the vice president was “received” by a congressman whose name was mentioned in the document. But the solon, identified later as PBA Party-list Rep. Jericho Nograles, immediately disowned the complaint and denied knowing anything about it. It was a bad day for Bruce Rivera and his cohorts. In totally unrelated news… that same day, the Senate approved the Mental Health Care Act.

New Words
More than 300 words have been added to online database Dictionary.com and Oxforddictionaries.com. Some of the words added in 2017 were ‘cheat day,’ ‘sausage party,’ and ‘sext.’ It’s easy to find these new entries online because beside each word, there’s an image of Kiefer Ravena.

“NA-ANO LANG”

4 05 2017

HERE IS THE FULL TEXT OF TITO SOTTO’S APOLOGY.

ATITOSOTTO

Mga minamahal kong kababayan,

For the last 48 hours, the issue of the “Na-ano lang” comment has spun out of control. Tonight, I want to set the record straight. You deserve an explanation from me, because you are the people I was elected to serve.

As you recall, the confirmation hearing was unnecessarily dull even with comedians in the committee including yours truly, Manny Pacquiao and several others.

I was anxious to keep the energy in the room and during that time had conversations with many people, including DSWD Sec. Judy Taguiwalo. My intent was not to humiliate the Secretary, and it did not.

That said, let me tell you how I personally feel. I recognize that making such joke was a lapse in judgment. I AM SORRY. I take full responsibility for my actions and to you and to all those good citizens who may have had their faith shaken by these events. I want to assure you that I have redoubled my efforts to serve the nation and earn your trust.

Nagagambala ako. Maliwanag na may kakulangan sa wastong pagpapasya ang nangyaring pagbibitiw ng joke. Pinagsisisihan ko ito nang lubos. Pinananagutan ko nang lubusan ang aking ginawa, at humihingi ako ng tawad kay Secretary Taguiwalo, sa inyo, sa lahat ng mga butihing mamamayan na nabawasan ng tiwala dahil sa mga pangyayaring ito. Ibig kong tiyakin sa inyo na lalo pa akong magsisikap upang maglingkod sa bayan at matamo ang inyong tiwala.

As my late father told me, “Do what is right, do your best and let God take care of the rest.”.

That is why I want to close this chapter and move on with the business of governing. I ask each and everyone of you to join hands with me in a show of unity, to help forge one Philippines, where everyone is equal under the law, and everybody has the opportunity to use their God-given talents to make a better life.

God bless the Philippines!

No. We don’t describe single moms as “na-ano lang.” So, fuck you.

AWARD!

24 04 2017

MANILA MAYOR Joseph Estrada celebrated his 80th birthday recently at the Manila Hotel. In attendance were the who’s who of Philippine politics like President Duterte, former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and husband Mike, former vice president Jejomar Binay, detained ex-senator Jinggoy Estrada, former senator Juan Ponce Enrile, Bongbong Marcos, and Imelda Marcos. When Satan saw this group photo, he said, “Uwian na bes. Nanalo na ako.”

Most Influential
Duterte fanatics are livid. The President topped TIME’s online poll for its annual most influential people list but the TIME 100 write up written by former Colombian president Cesar Gaviria was critical of the government’s war on drugs. Fanatics are appealing to their fellow Ka-DDS to boycott TIME – a news magazine which, they neither read nor buy to begin with.

01TIME2

It’s TIME
Palace Spokesman Ernesto Abella: Sir, kasama po kayo sa online survey ng TIME.

President Duterte: Sus! ‘Di ako naniniwala sa survey-survey na ‘yan.

Abella: Sir, grabe ang support ng mga Ka-DDS, nangunguna kayo.

Duterte: Sus! Thank you na lang.

Abella: Sir, nanalo na kayo! Kayo ang No. 1!

Duterte: Congrats sa ating lahat. Sabihin mo sa mga tao natin, maraming salamat.

Abella: Sir, kalalabas lang: negative ang write up ng TIME.

Duterte: Put*ng ina kasi. ‘Di ba sabi ko, hindi dapat pinaniniwalaan ang mga survey na ‘yan? Ang kulit n’yo eh. ‘Tang ina.

It’s Time II
Abella: Sir, panalo kayo sa TIME 100 online poll.

Duterte: Ano ‘yon?

Abella: Most influential people in the world. Ibinoto kayo ng mga Ka-DDS.

Duterte: Wow. Sinu-sino bang kasama ko doon?

Abella: Nandun sina Pope Francis, Theresa May, Elizabeth Warren, Vladimir Putin, Melinda Gates…

Duterte: Eh ‘di ok.

Abella: ‘Tsaka si Senator De Lima, sir.

Duterte: PUTANG INA! ILANG BESES KO BA SASABIHING HINDI AKO BILIB SA MGA ONLINE SURVEY NA ‘YAN?!? MAHIRAP BANG INTINDIHIN ‘YUN!?!

Honoris Causa
Amid protests from UP students, faculty and alumni, President Duterte declined the offer of the State University’s Board of Regents (BOR) to confer him the Doctor of Laws degree, honoris causa. Records show the honorary degree for Duterte was proposed by UP President Danny Concepcion. The motion was seconded by Regents Angelo Jimenez and Frederick Farolan, both Duterte appointees in the BOR. Despite Duterte’s rejection of the honorary degree, Malacañang assured Farolan and Jimenez there are other ways to win Order of Lapu-Lapu (award) from the President in the future.

Honoris Causa II
Abella: Sir, may offer na honorary degree ang UP.

Duterte: Anong kailangang gawin?

Abella: A-attend ka lang sa graduation nila.

Duterte: ‘Yun lang?

Abella: Yes sir.

Duterte: Sige. Kailan ‘yan?

Abella: Sanga pala sir, maraming bumabatikos sa offer na honorary degree. ‘Di raw kayo deserving dahil sa human rights record n’yo. June 25 nga pala ‘yung graduation.

Duterte: JUNE 25?!? EH ANO NGAYON?! ‘DI BA SABI KO, HINDI AKO TUMATANGGAP NG AWARD-AWARD NA ‘YAN? BAKIT KA UMOO?

Abella:

Honoris Causa III
Abella: Sir, may offer na honorary degree ang UP.

Duterte: Hindi ako tumatanggap ng kahit anong award. As a matter of personal and official policy, I do not accept awards.

Abella: Pero sir, ‘di ba tinanggap n’yo ‘yung ‘Man of the Year Award’ last February from the Manila Times ‘tsaka ‘yung Knight Grand Cross award mula sa Knights of Rizal? Nasa report ng Rappler.

Duterte: Gagu! Sino bang paniwalaan mo: ako o ‘yung fake news ng Rappler?

Abella: Eh sir, nandun ako nang tanggapin n’yo ‘yung dalawang award eh.

Duterte: Gusto mong ikaw ang awardan ko?

Abella: Tama sir ang desisyon n’yo. Say no to UP!

VP’s Birthday
Last April 23, Vice President Leni Robredo quietly spent her 52nd birthday at home with her family. Mocha Uson and Bruce Rivera are still figuring out which part of the celebration is an impeachable offense.

(ISANG) ORDER OF LAPU-LAPU

17 04 2017

000EzraAcayan.jpg
CONGRATULATIONS to President Duterte for topping the TIME readers’ poll of the “most influential” people in the world this year. The magazine was quick to clarify however, those who voted for Duterte were not actually TIME readers but TIME bashers. Still, congratulations!

Kris
Congratulations also to Kris Aquino for landing an acting project in Hollywood. Unconfirmed reports say she is set to do the remake of the hit comedy from the year 2000 starring Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott. The movie’s working title is “Dude, Where’s My Career?”

Order of Lapu-Lapu
President Duterte recently announced the creation of the Order of Lapu-Lapu, an award for anyone who will render “invaluable or extraordinary service to a campaign or advocacy of the President.” In short, ‘asslickers.’

Order of Lapu-Lapu II
When asked why he decided to name the award ‘Order of Lapu-Lapu,’ President Duterte said, “Masyadong susyal kung ‘Order of Stonefish.’”

Distrust
Vice President Leni Robredo recorded the highest distrust rating among the top national officials, the latest Pulse Asia survey showed. In totally unrelated news, Malacañang will confer the Order of Lapu-Lapu on Mocha Uson and Duterte’s keyboard warriors.

Distrust II
According to the latest Pulse Asia survey, the number of Filipinos who distrust Vice President Leni Robredo is higher than those who distrust self-confessed two-timer, death penalty advocate and traditional politician Pantaleon Alvarez. Meanwhile, another Pulse Asia survey revealed Leni Robredo has the worst PR team.

Protest Fee
Less than 24 hours after the Supreme Court ordered Bongbong Marcos to pay the election protest fee of 66.2-million pesos (either in full or installment basis), the defeated vice presidential candidate immediately paid 36 million pesos. In the words of Imelda Marcos, “Maliit na bagay.”

000EO1
Junket
Duterte fanatic and sex blogger Mocha Uson as well as controversial ex-jueteng bagman, and defeated senatorial candidate Sandra Cam joined President Duterte in his recent visit to the Middle East. The delegation has returned the other day. Uson and Cam can’t wait for the next junket with the President. Let’s hope the universe cooperates and those two get booked on a United Airlines flight.
