Mean tweets vs “idiot,” “moron” Talisay vice mayor
A town mayor is getting flak online after questioning the chief seismologist Renato Solidum over the Taal Volcano alert warnings.
Talisay, Batangas Vice Mayor Charlie Natanauan reportedly plans to ask President Duterte to compel Phivolcs director Renato Solidum to change his “opinion” about the volcano and allow the residents return to their homes. He alleged that Solidum was not God to predict volcanic eruptions.
Several netizens took to Twitter to ridicule Natanauan for not believing seismologists about the volcanic activity while others sought his resignation for alleged incompetence.
Twitter user @GeloAlcantara3 said: “If stupidity is an illness, this Vice Mayor is in the terminal stage. May we learn and be guided from proper authority.”
“This IDIOT Vice Mayor is trying to infuse politics on a clear and present danger, he must be reprimanded and suspended by @DILGPhilippines for GROSS IGNORANCE, issuing false hope and putting the life of his constituents in mortal danger. What a total MORON! #TaalEruption2020,” @TigerbasRichard tweeted.
Netizen @AnyaJusay tweeted: “Si Talisay Vice Mayor, while I do somehow understand the difficulties of the people in the area, I cannot fully fathom the need to be so stubborn. These are times when you just have to shush, especially if you don’t work with volcanoes & the likes 24/7. Wag tayong tanga please.”
“WHAT A DUMBASS! Does Vice Mayor Charlie Natanauan even know that he is putting the lives of his constituents in danger with what he wants to do? Di naman expert sa Volcanology, nagmamarunong pa!,” @SimounIsMe said.
The Talisay vice mayor should resign out of delicadeza, and in view of his inability or refusal to handle the crisis situation. Better leaders could take his place.— Tonyo Cruz (@tonyocruz) January 20, 2020
By resigning, he would also have time to be a fulltime student of geology or public administration.

When some politicians esp. the Vice Mayor of Talisay, Batangas is more concern with their business and money but not the safety of everyone. The audicity and ignorance of these people. PHIVOLCS are doing their job to keep us updated and what are the possibilities to happen.— u • (@au_glgd) January 20, 2020

Vice Mayor. The proverb 'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing' expresses the idea that a small amount of knowledge can mislead people into thinking that they are more expert than they really are, which can lead to mistakes being made. That really suits you.— Leander (@Leander31226858) January 20, 2020

These are times when you just have to shush, especially if you don't work with volcanoes & the likes 24/7.

Talisay, Batangas Vice Mayor Charlie Natanauan should be given three national posts:— Benedict Exconde (@iskonglasalista) January 20, 2020
1. PHIVOLCS Director
2. BFAR Director
3. DRR Secretary
He can also become the Archbishop of Lipa if he wants to.
If he insists. If the people who voted for this Mensa vice mayor insists. Let them go back. And let natural selection just take its course. https://t.co/IAlpCecIfT— 🏆 dǝʇɹɐ ƃnǝsz (@DarwinAwardsPH) January 20, 2020
