Noynoy Aquino continues to act like a bully three years into the presidency

Philippine President Benigno Simeon “BS” Aquino probably thinks that being the so-called “leader” of 100 million Filipinos comes with a license to seemingly act like a douche-bag. Ever since he was thrust into the highest office in the land, he has been making a lot of inappropriate statements and he does it quite often during the most inappropriate of occasions.

Who can forget the time when he tried to humiliate former Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona in his speech during the National Criminal Justice summit held at the Manila hotel back in 2011? Both BS Aquino and Corona were special guests in that event but the former thought it was the right time to attack the latter. Corona’s stoicism throughout his ordeal saw him gain hundreds of supporters as a result. Meanwhile, BS Aquino’s bullying tactics caused uproar among decent Filipinos who thought the President’s actions were unbecoming of a head of state.

Recently, BS Aquino’s bullying tactic was on display yet again. Without directly referring to his usual punching bag, former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA), in a speech in front of Filipino community in New Zealand, BS Aquino made fun of her use of a wheelchair due to her illness. As if the non-bailable charges that continue to keep GMA under arrest weren’t enough to satisfy him, BS Aquino could not help but take another jibe at his predecessor:

“Yung mga kababayan raw ho nating corrupt sa Pilipinas, kagagara ng kotse, kamamahal, katutulin. Pero pagka ginustong tumakas, ang ginagamit wheelchair.”

Obvioulsy, no one can to put a lid on the President’s witless mouth; not his family and not even his close friends. It’s either they are totally helpless in telling BS Aquino that he goes too far in his tirades against GMA or they are probably encouraging him to keep on doing what he does best: act like he is the King of the Philippines.

You can expect someone without any foresight like BS Aquino to act without thinking of the consequences of his actions. Unfortunately for him, more and more Filipinos are beginning to realize what an arrogant and insensitive person he is. His staff is left scrounging for words to defend him each time he offends the public with his statements. Being one of the President’s spin masters is not the most ideal job indeed. BS Aquino doesn’t seem to care that they suffer most of the brunt of public outrage when their boss commits gaffes. The best thing the President’s spokesperson could say as defense is to encourage the public not take him seriously, which is what Deputy Spokesperson Abigail Valte said about his joke. She just came across as dumb.

Without fail, BS Aquino would talk about how corrupt the past administration was every chance he gets without realizing that power can corrupt just about anyone, even himself. Corruption comes in many forms not just stealing public funds. His alleged strong-arming of some members of the other branches of government to get what he wants is a form of corruption too and so is the allegations that those who are close to BS Aquino always get away with their alleged crimes.

It is becoming apparent that BS Aquino is not confident about convicting GMA of the charges against her, which is why he feels compelled to give another round of media blitz vilifying her just to rile up the public again. It could have something to do with the fact that the plunder and graft cases against GMA for the alleged misuse of some P530 million in Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Medicare funds have been dismissed recently for lack of merit. Yes, BS Aquino’s “solid” case is starting to crumble right before his eyes and he is starting to lose face because of this. Disappointment has been said to trigger mental breakdown in individuals. Those who have a history of depression can be more susceptible to this kind of episode.

Speaking of mental illness, BS Aquino has given an ominous warning to the party responsible for releasing his “fake” psychiatric test. He said that it’s not his priority at the moment but they could be liable for releasing it to the public. Whether the psychiatric test is fake or genuine, who in their right mind would want to be a leader of this country in the first place? What the Philippines has is not a real democracy to begin with. As the BBC article reported, “Philippine politics is dominated by certain families. And evidently, even if one of them is very publicly deposed, they’re not out of power for very long.”

Part of the problem is that Filipinos need a lot of money to campaign for votes – and wealth is concentrated among certain families.

Manny Villar is one of the few senators who’s not from a well-known name – in fact he says was born in a squatter camp and once sold shrimps in a market.

But by the time he ran for political office, he’d already made his millions in business – and he says that private money is essential to any election campaign.

Yet even he believes money isn’t as good as family connections – the reason he gives for his failed presidential bid in 2010.

“You can go far, but I don’t think you can be president without being from one of those families,” he says.

Like what I have been saying all along, BS Aquino is part of the problem because he is from the landed oligarchy. The people cannot expect him to understand what the poor people go through. He tries his best to appear like he is a regular guy but he is one of those he describes in his joke. He cannot deny the fact that he is also fond of fancy and expensive cars.

It’s about time the public realizes that they need to stop voting for people like BS Aquino because they tend to look out for their own family’s interests instead of the public’s interest.

Yes, BS is an enormous part of the problem. He has the two houses of Congress by their pork barrels so they’re not going to challenge him. His vile family is allied with the majority of the media families so the media is not going to challenge him. And the wealthy families with power and influence who could challenge him will not do so because he is acting on their behalf. In other words, there are also no consequences to his incompetence other than that ordinary Filipinos will continue to suffer while he continues to govern on behalf of the… Read more »

He started a joke, and people laughed. But that joke was on him when the ombudsman dismissed a case against the butt of his joke. Got that from a post at facebook and just thought it an appropriate comment in this blog. 🙂

Great article as usual Ilda!
I believe that these recent actions of PNoy are already showing the true color of this “president”. It will only be a matter of time before karma finally catches up with PNoy.

of course,the next admin. will run around trying to put the last admin in jail for stealing while the till goes un-attended and then the next admin will do the same…and so on and so on and so on.while the till(public coffers)is un-attended.
‘hey,where all the money go?”what?weren’t you watchin the till?’ ‘NO I was busy…’.
it is almost funny,and very predictable.

Oh, and speaking of Teddy Casiño, he was right about one thing: Noynoy Aquino became senator then he became president “because of his lineage and the heroic efforts of his mother and sister” and not of his hard work. In other words, it’s because of his ‘lineage’, not of his track record.

Just accpet the fact that what we spoke is true that you are STUPID. Deal with it.

Are we really wrong about your god? What happened to genuine Industrialization, attracting long-term investments, livelihood programs/projects, jobs generation, genuine Infrastructure projects, Strategic Resources exploitation(oil, natural gas, minerals/ore),Scientific/Mechanized farming, Genuine and reasonable/sustainable Power Supply? Prioritizing the building of classrooms will not turn us into a world class economy. Nor will the mendicancy CCT program lift the masses out of their misery without sustainable support services like housing projects,agro-industrial projects and SME’s. Exporting rice? Are you talking about submarine rice? This is just the tip of the iceberg. Get real!!!

My God, why did you vote for this DumbAss. He cannot even give his foreign audiences a good joke. He tired to outdo: Sotto, the professional Joker. Unfortunately. Aquino cannot match Sotto. It is self evident, that even without a Psychiatric Report. That he suffers from Depression and Delusion. During the Chinese Hostage crissis:he suffered from Anxiety. This was the reason, he cannot be found and be contacted. His vindictiveness is the result of his depression. Now, he is talking nonsense, infront of foreign audiences. It’s a shame we have a President, who have mental illness…

Not true amigo.Aquino was at Quirino grandstand that day,I saw him there.He did nothing to prevent that idiot from shooting those unfortunate hostages but BS Aquino was there. I would also like to point out that Corona is no prince either,unless prince of thieves counts.It is pretty obvious that a certain court was paid to reverse a decision that cost a lot of hard working legally unionized workers their jobs.Corona appeared in a questionable court,answered not a single question about where he got at least $4,000,000.00(or why the court reversed its decision and why a large amount of money happened… Read more »

While I agree that Aquino can not possibly relate to being poor,just can’t. BUT,Aquino is the President of the country,commander-in-chief of the Military so who is to say when it is inappropriate for him to say something? Humor is in th ear of the beholder and the International community likes the guy and he is the one reason some countries MIGHT invest here.It is one of the worst places to do business in the world and electricity is more expensive here than NYC,which is a disgrace.Aquino has not delivered on a lot of what he promised,but he has done a… Read more »

An urgent aside Ilda. The Philippine Star Opinion section today posted a commentary by Roger Cohen of the New York Times. It is too lengthy to post. “Working with the Muslim Brotherhood” “CAIRO–Perhaps the most radical change in US foreign policy under President Obama has occurred here in Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood, long shunned as a collection of dangerous Islamic extremists, is now the de facto object of American support.” “Not only that: Ultraconservative Salafist politicians, who make the brotherhood seem like moderate pragmatists, are now regular visitors to the US Embassy and, on the theory that it better… Read more »

BS Aquino is a man to be pitied. He obviously treats his perceived enemies without empathy, sympathy, compassion or humanity. The demonization and vilification of Mrs. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo continues to this day. We witnessed many times the yellow troll propagandists do their thing.

On the other hand, his KKKK can do no wrong. So far if memory serves me right, only one political adviser was reprimanded.

What a nasty and obnoxious little man aquino is.
Lacking in breeding and intellect, and worst of all, in any sense of leadership.

Self interest and maintenance of the status quo remains the only real agenda, and retaining/regaining hacienda luisita

To date a catalogue of lies, bribes, and broken promises, obsessive about detail, but unable to see the big picture. Vindictive and hypocritical.

All in all – a bad egg.

Ilda, That picture you used for BS Aquino is a bit creepy. One creepy face is bad enough; that picture had two. Some bullies are only as good as their resbak, or posse. BS Aquino happens to be one of those. I agree that perhaps he thinks that the Presidency is a license to act like a total douchebag. Take away his backup, Lacierda, Valte, Abad, et al., and let’s see how well he can defend himself against his critics. Off topic: if BS Aquino is convinced that his political enemies are feigning sickness, why don’t we turn the tables… Read more »

I keep on wondering how and why Mr. BS Aquino manages to focus on two of his favorite, passionate subjects. His intensity against his perceived enemies is both tragic and disturbing. Reconciliation and unification is really far from his mind. Hate-think is the norm. We all saw the vicious attacks of the yellow crowd on his enemies. I am adding one more K to the KKKK crowd that surrounds him. This is the Kaalyansang MILF/bangsamoro. How and why he gave all the advantages to the MILF/bangsamoro is still the subject of debate. I saw the pictures of the secret Tokyo… Read more »

On the other side of the fence, Mr. BS Aquino’s sisters can do no wrong when they donated millions to the favorite akbayan socialist partylist who are seen as far from being marginalized.

From the other side of the fence, Mr. BS. Aquino’s sisters can do no wrong. All this in openly supporting with millions of pesos in donations given to his favorite Akbayan socialist partylist. The Akbayan socialists have been criticized as not being marginalized. Duh.. were the appropriate taxes paid?

It may be bad manners to talk with your mouth full, but it also isn’t too good if you speak when your head is empty.
