Lualhati Bautista Serves Up Fire on Her Facebook Posts for Politicians
Esteemed novelist Lualhati Bautista, author of Dekada '70, Bata, Bata, Pa'no Ka Ginawa?, and ‘GAPÔ, is not one to mince words, especially when confronted with a crisis. Anyone on the receiving end of Bautista's fiery remarks should evacuate.
In a Facebook post, Bautista slammed Senator Koko Pimentel after the latter asked for prayers for healing.
We sure felt the raging fire in her Facebook post. Pimentel became the target of national indignation when he violated the quarantine order several times in the past weeks, attending two birthday parties, grocery shopping, and breaching protocol at the Makati Medical Center (MMC) when he was already experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
Because of Pimentel’s actions, the hospital had to quarantine at least six of its medical workers, further depleting its staff. Pimentel has since issued a public apology to the MMC and the public, asking prayers for his healing.
When a person commented that the senator still deserves prayers, her quick response was:
“Eh ’di ipagdasal mo. Wala naming batas na nagsabing kailangan ko siyang ipagdasal. Peace.”
The novelist, who lives in Quezon City, also threw shade at Mayor Joy Belmonte. “Nagtataray siya, tingin yata niya sa marami sa kanyang constituent, kaaway.”
And when she praised Mayor Vico Sotto’s good governance, she did not miss an opportunity to throw serious shade at his uncle.
