The bond between Presidential Speaker Harry Roque and Cavite Governor Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla became apparent when the latter roasted the Palace official during his press briefing on Friday.
In a Presidential briefing that was hosted at Wil Tower, Remulla, who was sitting at a distance from Roque, clarified that Cavite was going against the government in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The governor, however, had a clever response to the reports, just like how he reacts to the questions in his social media accounts.
He started to clarify that it was never his intention to go against the government and every news about it is just ‘ fake news’.
“Fake news po na ako ay lumalaban sa gobyerno dahil hindi kami nagkakatugma ng pananaw tungkol sa paano pagpatakbo dito sa krisis.”
“Ito po ay kasing fake ng buhok ng aking katabi (Roque).”
Remulla did not stop there. He also took a dig at Roque and his brother, Rep. Jesus “Boying” Remulla.
“Alam niyo si Secretary ay matagal ko nang kaibigan. Siya ay kamukha ng aking kapatid na si Boying, sila ay magkaibigan noong law school at sila po ay nagkapalitan ng mukha habang sila ay nag-aaral.”
Later on, Roque got back at Jonvic and clarified that his lookalike is Jonvic, not Boying. He also mentioned that it was the residents of the Cavite who said he looked like Jonvic.
“Napansin niyo po na talagang malapit na kaibigan ko ‘tong si Governor Jonvic. Doon po sa sinabi niyang kamukha ko si Cong. Remulla, well alam niyo po sabi ng mga taga-Cavite noong kami ay umiikot during kampanya, kami daw po ni Gov. Jonvic ang magkamukha,” Roque explained.
Netizens weren’t amused with Harry Roque’s remarks comparing his looks to Governor Jonvic Remulla’s.
