senator nene pimentel dives into a pool of shame and dishonor with “insertion” remark towards mar roxas, takes the senate with him
we watched with disgust what happened at the senate on the manny villar censure debate on the C-5 controversy. the senators – jamby madrigal, allan peter cayetano and nene pimentel turned the senate floor into a floor of shame and embarrassment when they exchanged trash talk unfit for sennators who were elected by the people. we feel the senate was tainted with shame and dishonor.
we take particular offense on senator pimentel’s bastos remark towards senator mar roxas. we thought pimentel was one of the more respectable senior senators among them. he had always something to say on national issues and often times they were of law and made a lot of sense. but we think this remark of senator pimentel had taken him to dive into a pool of shame and dishonor.
The debate took a turn for the worse when Pimentel used the same word to comment on Sen. Mar Roxas’ defense that he, too, had no insertion in the national budget.
“After your marriage, you will have your insertions,” quipped Pimentel, a rather unsavory remark that drew Roxas’ ire.
“I demand that that be removed from the record!” shouted Roxas. “This is an affront to my wife.”
Roxas was recently married to broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez.
“Then remove it immediately,” retorted Pimentel.
Pimentel apologizes; Roxas gets ice cream, cake
Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas’ remark that it was a pity some men turn vulgar when they grow old may have worked.
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr. asked for forgiveness for using “intemperate language” during heated Senate debates on Monday on a resolution seeking to censure Sen. Manuel Villar over alleged “double insertions” in the controversial C-5 road budget.
Pimentel had said Roxas would have his own “insertions” now that he was married.
“To those who I might have hurt in this chamber by the use of intemperate language or unseemly expressions, I apologize and beg their forgiveness from You through You, O Lord,” Pimentel said as he led the chamber in its opening prayer.
