Ping Lacson Wants Fake, Thieving Politicians to Lose
Ping Lacson, Philippine senator and inadvertent politics critic by way of Twitter, has summed up our feelings over the upcoming elections via a tweet. Lacson wished good candidates good luck and the bad candidates to lose.
"To all the decent, well-intentioned, honest, selfless, disciplined, hardworking, capable, humble and perceptive candidates - GOOD LUCK! Sa mga balasubas, abusado, magnanakaw, peke, manloloko, makasarili at tamad - MATALO SANA KAYO, mga #^•*” ninyo!" he tweeted yesterday, May 10. The post has 259 retweets and 756 likes.
Lacson has been turning to Twitter to actively express his political comments. In March, he posted a series of cryptic tweets about senatorial aspirants that won't get his vote. His seven "blind items" spoke of candidates who are allegedly "balimbing," "lost and confused and confusing to voters," and "fake." He also called one of them "a predator" and labeled another as a "lazy idiot."
Voting is on May 13, 2019. Find your precinct here.
