3 hours ago: “May reunion ng mga kriminal sa gobyernong ito” – Sen. Leila de Lima

Three hours ago: “May reunion ng mga kriminal sa gobyernong ito” – Senator Leila de Lima in a noontime news conference at the Senate today (“A reunion of criminals is taking place in this government”)

      “Huwag na tayong magtanong kung bakit sa panahon ni Duterte naglabasan at namayagpag ang lahat ng kriminal, corrupt , haláng ang bituka at maiitim ang mga kaluluwa. May reunion ng mga kriminal sa gobyernong ito dahil ang pinaka-kriminal sa kanila ngayon ang Pangulo ng bansa. Parang sa pelikula lang iyan ng Batman kung saan ipinatawag ni Joker lahat ng masasamang-loob sa Gotham City upang maghasik ng kadiliman … Kumbaga sa pelikula, si Pangulong Duterte po si Joker sa eksenang pinapanood natin sa kasalukuyan — isang psychotic na mamamatay-tao at pinaka-leader ng lahat ng mga haláng ang bituka. ” (the entire paragraph of the line “may reunion ng mga kriminal…”)

     Senator Leila de Lima’s prepared noontime statement today, read out loud from a tablet with the right amount of control and indignation, is:

     Witty, sharp, biting, and hip with the right dash of dark humor.
         When you do this, you get people to sit up and pay attention … 
(people want to be able to mock their monarchs…) 

Kudos to the team.
