Ganito kabulag at kabingi ang mga panatikong DDS. The vice-president literally gave point-by-point solutions to COVID-19 problems, and this troll's comment? Hanap solusyon kesa paninira raw. Partida, may transcript pang napakadaling intindihin sa ilalim ng video. Mga bobo. pic.twitter.com/ZS6WSqA1CD

Sis, SKL na she explained and addressed everything in just 22 minutes. Kumbaga sa Advertising, the Account Director explained the Recap of the Brief, Strategy, Next Steps, Recommendations and Timings. Ganun siya kalala. Ganun rin kagaling. Sana ganun ka din, SONA all. https://t.co/fm0gy0WbCD

This is how SONA must be done. Focused on the problem and not on personalities and nonsense talks. Thanks VP for unveiling what the supposed “recovery plan” we all should have heard last Monday. https://t.co/PoAaEJqAE2

Noong lunes andaming binigkas noong mama, wala namang sinabi. Mabuti pa yung narinig ko ngayon mula sa pangalawang pangulo, malaman at malinaw.

VP Leni is so compassionate, thorough, honest, and intelligent. It's not hard to imagine how better we could be not only w/ her heading government (the dream), but also w/ the kind of people she is sure to attract as leaders, allies, collaborators, and workers in public service.
