Vice President Jejomar Binay reacts against Vice Ganda’s quips to his daughter Nancy.
Just like any other father who would run to his child’s defense, VP Binay bumped off unfriendly individuals’ comments against his daughter Nancy Binay, whom he said is already sure to win a senatorial post.
“Yung mga bashers na ‘yun, talagang natural na ‘yun, ‘yung mga inggitero, inggitera,” Binay said.
He was asked if he is pertaining to showbiz personality Vice Ganda, he said: “Basta’t yung mga gustong magdagdag ng boto at bumagsak ng boto si Nancy, ano pa ang dahilan.”
It was reported earlier that the comedian criticized her for running for the Senate even without extensive experience saying he would want to run for President immediately if he is to pursue a government position. “‘Yung wala kang background, pero mataas agad, parang ‘yung mga pulitiko lang ngayon. Walang background, pero senador agad,” he said.
Risa Hontiveros, one of Nancy’s rivals, is the candidate bet of the “It’s Showtime” host.
But the Vice President said Vice Ganda’s comment was just a reaction “dun sa sinasabi ng mga taong katulad niya na wala siyang [Nancy] experience. Kaya nga sinasagot na ‘yun bang 20 taon na kasama ko ang tatay ko at nanay ko eh hindi pa ba sapat na kakayahan ‘yun?”
Mr. Binay insisted that such comments will not bring down Nancy, who has shown momentum in pre-election surveys.
“Eh ano ba ang masasabing panalo? Ang panalo ba ang ibig sabihin 9-0? So tignan na lang natin resulta. ‘Yung resulta ang magsasabi kung tama ‘yung aming pagdulog at paghingi ng suporta sa ating mga kandidato,” he said.
