manny villar risks heart attack for his 86 year old mom for political gimmick
we were ready to have a heart attack of our own as we we were watching this news clip of the “press conference” of manny villar’s mom on national tv. while the announcer did not say so, we were waiting in horror a scene where mom manny villar will have a cardiac arrest right on tv. we saw the tears, heard her voice breaking in between sobs and we saw the pain as she talked about the problems of her son in his political run to be president. it was very close to watching a horror movie where death was certain.
why on earth did manny villar do this to her mom?
we had sympathy for mom manny villar but we did not feel any sympathy at all for manny villar the presidentiable. we only felt loathing for bringing his mom to this kind of pain and humiliation,
lolas are beautiful people. mom manny villar is a very beautiful lola. in her face is the beauty of old age and wisdom. from her, we were expecting joy and countless words of wisdom. but that was not what we saw on national tv.
what we saw on tv was her children, the sisters of manny villar and most probably manny villar himself making their mom do these awful things for political gain. we do not think it was something mom manny villar wanted to do. she looked a lot smarter than that. we think it was her children who made her do it.
one of manny villar’s sister even defended the action by saying noynoy aquino had also used his mom in his political campaign as if it could be compared. noynoy’s mom and dad were the first politicians before noynoy, not only that both are national heroes, one martyred, the other bringing back glory and pride to the country. noynoy had no choice about that. they would be brought into the picture whether he liked it or not. that is not at all the case with mom manny villar. there is no comparison between the two.
we think at the very least, what they had mom manny villar do was in very bad taste. it did not build any goodwill for manny villar at all. the villar sisters and manny seem to relish torturing and humiliating their mom just to win this election.
