Ang mga empleado ng sinungaling ay sinungaling din.
The Inquirer reported:
“At the Senate blue ribbon subcommittee on Thursday, Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco, United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) interim president, and JV Bautista, UNA interim secretary general, appeared to present evidence to dispute Mercado’s statement that he had not been hospitalized. UNA is Binay’s political party.
The UNA officials said an Ernesto Mercado was treated at UERM Memorial Medical Center for heart ailment on Oct. 1 and Oct. 4, contrary to Mercado’s statement.
They wanted Mercado’s testimonies stricken off the records of the subcommittee, citing his earlier statement that he would take back all his statements if Binay’s camp can show proof of his hospitalization.”
But a UERM hospital admission employee told the Inquirer on Thursday:
“We have no records of a patient of that name in our system.”
I’m glad the senators kicked out Tiangco and Bautista instead of handling the piece of paper they were waving at the hearing. There’s no doubt they pulled that paper out their ass.
According to a Rappler report
- Vice President Jejomar Binay said his critics have crossed the line in dragging daughter Joanna Marie into their efforts to discredit him.
At the Senate hearing on the alleged overpriced Makati City Hall Building 2 on Thursday, Cayetano presented Joanna Marie’s Instagram posts on the 350-hectare tagged by the Vice President’s former allies as “Hacienda Binay.”
Joanna Marie captioned one photo, “Our place in Batangas,” showing one of the pools in the property. Another photo shows the Vice President himself enjoying a round of karaoke in the same house.
First they questioned the committee’s jurisdiction. That didn’t work. So now they want all incriminating evidence presented by former Makati Vice Mayor Mercadostricken off the record.
Binay spokesman JV Bautista said Mercado lied about being hospitalized so everything Mercado said including all the documents he gathered from government offices are also lies.
“When a witness wilfully lies on one matter of his testimony, then all the rest of his testimony will be considered to be falsehood.”
And so the great JV Bautista wants us to believe that the aerial shots of the Binay Hacienda, the land titles under the name of Binay’s close associates, the official correspondence coming from Makati City officials cannot stand on their own merits.
I guess if you believe JV Bautista then you will also take his word that a taste test is the only way to tell whether a brown tube floating in a swimming pool is a Tootsie Roll or shit.
