POLITIKO - The bible of Philippine Politics

Senator Panfilo Lacson is baffled why senatorial aspirant Chel Diokno chose to save his own hide rather than try to save either two presidents during a recent Senate debate.

In the recent “Fast Talk” segment of ABS-CBN’s Harapan 2019, Diokno was recently asked a hyphothetical question “Lulubog ang barko, isa lang ang natitirang life vest. Kanino mo ibibigay, kay Pangulong Duterte o kay dating Pangulong Arroyo?”

Diokno replied: “Naku, sa akin na lang kaya?” His answer triggered laughter from the audience.

Reacting to Diokno’s quip, Lacson tweeted: “I had expected Atty Diokno, an acknowledged human rights lawyer and advocate to value the life of either Pres Duterte or Spkr Arroyo as highly as he values the right to life of a notorious criminal, a drug pusher, or a rapist.”
