Ano ba naman ito.
Ayun sa report ng GMA News TV, gusto raw ni Noynoy Aquino, ang nanalo sa pagka-pangulo ng Pilipinas sa nakaraaang eleksyun , iniisip raw niya bigyan ng pwesto sa gobyerno ang mga Kapuso stars na si Dingdong Dantes at Ogie Alcasid.
Lumabas ito ng tinanong siya kung sino pa sa mga taga showbiz ang iniisip niyang i-appoint sa pamahalaan maliban kay TV host na si Boy Abunda ng ABS-CBN, ang sagot ni Aquino, “Si Dingdong, si Ogie…siguro dun sa mga advocacy nila gaya sa youth.”
Hindi pa raw niya nakaka-usap ang dalawa na tumulong sa kanya noong kampanya. Ngunit ang pag-suporta sa kanya raw ay hindi lamang ang basehan ng kanyang desisyon na kukunin sila para manglingkod sa gobyerno.
PRESIDENTIAL frontrunner Noynoy Aquino has not even been proclaimed the winner in the polls, yet Kris Aquino, expectedly, continues to make trouble for him. Good grief girl, get a grip! Can’t you just shut up and leave the politics and governing to him? Gads, maawa ka naman sa kuya mo! You’ve given him enough problems already. And you wonder why the Despedida page for you on Facebook is such a big hit?
Tsk, tsk. I can hear many of Noynoy’s diehard groupies gnashing their teeth now.
