Shortly after social media fired up a storm for his highly irrelevant “na-ano” comment to DWSD Sec. Judy Taguiwalo at her confirmation hearing, Senate Majority Leader Tito Sotto attempted to apologize, saying his critics “don’t understand the joke.”
“Ang premise ko, sabi ko nga, in the street language, di ba? Yun ang biruan sa kalsada. That’s why kung minasama nila, I’m sorry. I apologize. They don’t understand the joke.”
He first started his
non-apology by dragging Senator Drilon’s name back into the conversation; emphasizing it was Drilon who noticed Sec. Judy’s unusual family setup.
And then he goes into a long-winded explanation about how he “will be the last person in this country to disrespect a woman because my mother was one of the founders of the women’s rights movement” and how he has “two daughters who are separated and are single mothers.”
“I don’t think there should be any big fuss about it,” he said.
Anyway, a reporter prodded him saying that is the Eat Bulaga humor, to which Sotto replied: “That’s why my premise is industry blunders. Yan ang biruan sa kalsada eh. Kung minasama nila, sorry. I apologize. They don’t understand the joke.”
Erm, should we apologize for not getting the unfunny joke and his passe humor?
Regardless, we’re attaching the video from GMA’s Facebook account so you can hear him say sorry, but also, so you can see the RBFs of the reporters around him. Their faces say it all.
