I really had a great time last night at Dolphy Theater at Vice Ganda’s Presscon for his upcoming Grand Araneta Concert on May 17, 2013. I was able to know how involved he was in the conceptualization of this project and he said he’s very involved. Dapat naaaprove ko, and alam ko. Kase minsan pag hindi ko gusto nakakapagsuggest ako.”
About running for politics?, “Gusto ko yung President ako agad. Yung wala kang background pero mataas agad. Parang mga pulitiko lang ngayon, walang background pero sila tatakbo.” Crowd cheers.
He said he was referring to Nancy Binay, daughter of Vice President Jejomar Binay, whose only experience in politics is being executive assistant to her parents who are both former mayors of Makati City.
“Wala akong sinabing masama and nag-set lang ako ng example kasi totoo namang wala siyang political background pero senador agad. So, malay ninyo pwede din ako sa ganoon,” he said.
“I’m responsible with what I say. I’m not responsible to what people understand. Kahit gaano ka-safe ang salita mo, depende parin yun sa taong makakarinig. Malinis naman yung sinabi ko, ako ay nag-state lang ng fact,” he said.
He said he is not close to the Binays, despite the closeness of his best friend, Kris Aquino, to the Vice President’s family.
“Ayoko naman maka-claim kasi baka sabihin na itong baklang ito hindi naman namin kakilala. I’m not even friends with them,” he said.
Vice also said he was asked to endorse certain candidates but he declined all of them because he does not believe in their causes.
“Hindi ko naman sila iboboto. Pag mag endorse ako ng isang pulitiko kung iboboto ko siya, sige ilabas mo and sasabihin ko sa buong mundo na iboboto kita. Pero kung manloloko ako, wag na,” he said.
Vice said several candidates also wanted to appear on his Sunday evening talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice” but he personally turned them down.
The comedian said he post on his Twitter account the names of the six candidates he will support in the May 13 polls. Vice has 2.7 million followers on the micro-blogging site.
“Makikita at maririnig mo doon kung mayroong laman yung utak, may sinasabi, may kunkretong plano, at kung may sinseridad yung nagsasalita. Ang daming may kunkretong plano pero hindi ko naman nararamdaman yung sinseridad. Yung mga iboboto ko, yun ang nakitaan ko ng sinseridad na mag silbi sa tao.”
Regine Velasquez will have a duet with him on the concert. That made me decide to really watch!
