Incoming Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa noticed one of his critic who mocked his statement over his willingness to learn how to make laws.
The student, who studied Political Science in De La Salle University on Tuesday posted the transcript of Dela Rosa’s interview with CNN Philippines, expressing his anger over the cluelessness of the retired general.
“THIS IS THE 5TH MOST VOTED SENATOR IN THE REPUBLIC. LECHEEE!!!! ANO NA PILIPINAS? ANO NA?!” the critic wrote on his post which already gathered 55,000 shares on Facebook.
As a response, Dela Rosa shared the post of the said critic and asked why the latter was so judgmental.
Dela Rosa even offered his hand to relieve the sadness of the critic who got disappointed to him.
“Grabe naman manghusga itong batang ito. Mahapdi pa ba ang sugat mo? Tulungan kitang gamutin yan dong.”
In another post, Dela Rosa showed a photo of him during his visit as guest of honor and speaker during a commencement exercise of his alma mater, Mindanao State University in 2017.
“Hello! Is it me you’re looking for?” Dela Rosa said.
Most of the critics of Bato are students who questioned his ability to work as a senator of the Philippines.
Meanwhile, several of his future colleagues offered their help to Dela Rosa, including Senator Panfilo Lacson who said that he’s gonna guide his fellow PMA’er about the rules of the Senate.
Senate President Vicente Sotto III also confirmed that neophyte senators would be guided and trained by the upper house.
