Last night, Filipinos on microblogging sites like Twitter and Plurk and social networking sites such as Facebook were spreading the word about Pampanga Representative Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo’s remarks on TV Patrol World.
The solon was defending his mother, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, against widespread criticism over the expensive dinners at posh New York restaurants.
Unfortunately, sometimes when you open your mouth, you make things worse.
Now, we the Filipino people are being asked if we forgot that the President is not just an ordinary person and needs to keep her dignity. “Do you want your president to eat in a McDonald’s or some turo-turo?” Mikey Arroyo asked in last night’s TV Patrol World newscast.
