17 Times The 2016 Elections In The Philippines Was A Fucking Joke

Elections or a circus? Ewan ko na.

Posted on

1. First of all, when an "intergalactic ambassador" wanted to run for the presidency.

2. And then when Alma Moreno danced at a sortie and it was gloriously awkward.

3. And as if it wasn't awkward enough, she was joined by presidential bet Jejomar Binay and senatorial hopeful Manny Pacquiao.

4. When this person who was running for office tried to take credit for McDonald's Breakfast Day, thinking he could get away with it.

“Dahil mahal ko kayo LIBRE ko kayo ng mc muffin sa mc donalds sa March 14, 2016 basta simula 6 am hanggang 7 am sagot ko mc muffins nyo sa lahat ng mcdo outlet sa buong Pilipinas… Sabihin nyo lang pangalan ko… ganyan ko kayo kamahal… save the date! Kita kits tayo para sa libre kong paalmusal… 6 to 7 am lang ha… agahan nyo mga ka fb!”

But he didn't.

5. When presidential bet Rodrigo Duterte casually dropped a rape joke and even earned some laughs from the audience.

Wer na u, mga beh.

7. And when Binay still insisted on bringing notes to the debate (which was the cause of the said delay to begin with) and was even sassy about it.

8. When two presidential candidates were real classy and engaged in a slapping dare.

9. And when Mar Roxas tried to badmouth Davao, his competitor's home turf, and it horribly backfired.

10. Literally every time Chiz Escudero talked to us in his robotic voice.

11. And every time Jejomar Binay evaded corruption charges during debates.

12. And when Binay gave out rosaries with his initial engraved on it because he's subtle like that.

13. When, instead of discussing platforms, the debates were filled with mudslinging...

14. ...And insults.

15. When it was Binay's turn to ask Mayor Duterte a question and he said nothing but praises.

16. But then he came out with a video discouraging us to vote for Duterte days after the said debate.

"Hindi dapat maging pangulo ang isang tulad ni Mr. Duterte."

Ano ba talaga, koya? Watch the full video here.

17. And when Mayor Duterte was asked to name his top campaign contributor, he cited a historical figure.
