Netizens, personalities poke fun at Harry Roque’s ‘bombshell’

As it turns out, the ‘Bombshell’ announcement Roque was referring to was Pres. Duterte declaration that he won’t fire Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque III but would accept the health secretary’s resignation if he offers to resign.

On August 24, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced that President Rodrigo Duterte has a ‘Bombshell’ statement for his recorded public address hours later.

Some netizens reacted to his remark and poked fun at him on social media.

Born To Be Wild host Kiko Rustia considered Roque’s remark as ‘Dumbshell’ instead of ‘Bombshell.’ 

PinoyAkoBlog also agreed to Rustia’s tweet.

Other netizens wrote that they prefer the all-girl dance group, Sexbomb Girls, instead of the supposed ‘Bombshell.’

Duque came under fire after the Commission on Audit flagged DOH for the Php 67.32 billion COVID-funds allotted to the department. The health secretary then trended on for his ‘winarak’ response to COA’s findings.
