Well-known lawyer and one of the recent social media sensation, Atty. Larry Gadon who is as well running for Senator in 2019 Midterm Election, describes opposition lawmakers, Sen. Antonio Trillanes, Hontiveros and also Pangilinan as Bobo.
Atty. Larry Gadon was cited as stating “”Para sa’kin bobo si Trillanes. Si Risa Hontiveros, bobo ‘yan. Si Mr. Sharon Pangilinan, si Mr. Sharon Cuneta bobo yan,” Gadon explained to radio DZMM’s “Ikaw Na Ba” senatorial candidates’ interview.
The controversial lawyer additionally downplayed the impact of popularing “bobo” among the youth.
“Ang ibig sabihin lang naman ng bobo hindi ka mulat sa katotohanan. Hindi mo tinatanggap kung ano yung totoo at ano yung tama. Iba naman yung sa sinasabi na tanga or ignorant,” he stated.
Check out the Interview with Atty. Gadon:
“Kung susubaybayan mo ang social media ngayon, yung mga kabataan… makikita mo sila na balewala sa kanila yung mga mura at mga salitang bobo sapagkat mas gusto nila katotohanan ang sabihin sa kanila. Atsaka pagdating naman sa PI, tinatanggap na yan na isang expression lamang.”
Fellow senatorial bet and then ex- Solicitor General Florin Hilbay, disagreed with Atty. Gadon as he stated that proper discourse is required to talk about government policies.
Ex- Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque who was also invited at the time of the mentioned show, revealed that he does not care whether a senator is “bobo” for as long as he does indeed his job.
“Immaterial kung sila ay bobo o hindi basta ginagawa nila ang trabaho nila. Ang pagiging senador ay paggawa ng batas kaya kung sila ay naggrandstanding lang, sinasayang lang nila yung pera ng taumbayan,” he stated.
