You would think that the latest news on Wowowee host Willie Revillame would be his three week suspension. You would think that after his rather uncouth and uncalled for remark on the live coverage of Cory Aquino's funeral, he'd probably lie low and let this latest tide of controversy ebb before figuring in another controversy. YOU WOULD... but apparently, not Willie Revillame and not Senator Manny Villar.
In ABS-CBN's early evening news last night, Senator Villar broke news that he willing to reserve a slot in his senatorial line up for Wowowee host Willie Revillame.
You would probably think that canned laughter would follow after the Senator made the announcement in a press conference.
Here's an excerpt from that news:
In a press conference on Friday, Senator Manuel Villar, president of the NP, said that if Revillame is willing to run for the Senate, he will reserve a slot for him.At this point, you would probably tell Villar that if he doesn't see a problem in Willie Revillame running for Senator, he ought to stop running for President himself.
"Oo, naman, very qualified naman si Willie, wala naman akong nakikitang problema kay Willie," Villar said. "Yun ay isang bagay na dapat niyang pagisipan."
Villar visited Revillame in Tagaytay after he found out about the controversy involving Revillame's move to cut the live streaming of the late President Corazon Aquino's August 3 procession which was being shown simultaneously on Wowowee through an inset video.
First off, Willie Revillame doesn't know anything about the laws that govern this land, much less the laws that govern television. Second, he doesn't know anything about making laws and even if he were to attempt to make one, I doubt if he'd make one that would matter or make it pass.
But there's one thing about Willie Revillame that may actually be a saving grace, he's too dumb to steal money from his pork barrel or PDAF.
Who'd vote for Willie Revillame? Well, if you are one of the millions that watch him everyday, you would.
