Even Senator Bong Go is red-faced about how the hosting of the Southeast Asian Games is shaping up to be a major disaster for President Rodrigo Duterte and the country.

But Go made a privilege speech to appeal to bashers not to add more fuel to the country’s embarrassment because a SEA Games flop would be seen as a failure not only of the Duterte administration but the entire nation.

“Sobrang nakakalungkot po na sa mga panahong ito, may ilan sa mga kababayan natin na pumapalakpak sa maling rason—pumalakpak dahil gusto nila tayong pumalpak,” said Go in the face of vicious social media posts condemning the sheer ineptitude of the organizers, Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee led by Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano.

“Ganitong pag-uugali ba ang gusto nating ipakita sa ating mga bisita at karatig bayan? Ganitong pag-uugali ba ang gusto nating ipamana sa ating mga kabataan?” he added.

“Hindi po dapat ganyan ang maging attitude natin ngayon. Mataas ang expectation ng buong mundo sa atin bilang host ng Southeast Asian Games. The reputation of the country is at stake,” he said.

He said there was a right for everything. “Huwag tayong magturuan ngayon. But after the games, papanagutin natin ang dapat na managot,” Go.
