Alvarez calls impeachment complaint an act of ‘stupidity’
Did House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez just call Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano “stupid” for filing an impeachment complaint against President Rodrigo Duterte? Sounds like it.
“We’re all entitled to our own stupidity,” Alvarez said in a TV interview when asked to react on the complaint filed by the opposition politiko Thursday, March 16 before the House of Representatives (HOR).
It was the first ever impeachment complaint filed against Duterte, who took over Malacañang on June 30, 2016.
Employing simple logic, lawyer Alvarez brushed off the complaint as “baseless” and therefore, “pointless.”
“Kaya sinabi kong stupidity wala kasing baeshan. At kung walang basehan eh di walang patutunguhan di ba?” he said, giving a hearty laugh afterward. The HOR is currently on recess.
Alejano is a former Marine captain.
