Highlights of today’s hearing: CJ Sereno impeachment House Justice Committee Chair: “We should be more circumscribed in the use of our words…”
Earlier in the morning, at the House Justice Committee hearing on the impeachment complaint against Supreme Court Chief Justice Meilou Sereno, House Justice Committee Chair Umali issued the following advice/ warning to congressmen/ committee members:
“… we should be more circumscribed in the use of our words and in our actions … and not cast aspersions on the committee…”
Following this instruction from the House Justice Committee Chair to be more circumscribed in the use of words, the congressmen proceeded to make roundish shapes with the mouth to make “O” sounds, and to make circular motions all around in the conduct of the hearing … in order to be more circumscribed in the use of their words and in their actions.
The past week, the news media quoted an impassioned congressman who used the “f” word to describe the House Justice Committee hearing.
He should be more circumspect in the use of his words — if only for children who may be watching TV or reading content on social media. Otherwise, his colleagues will put a hula hoop around him so he can be more circumscribed in the use of his words.
