Hati ang reakson ng netizens sa sinabi ni dating police at corrections chief, na ngayo’y pang lima sa Senate race, Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa tungkol sa unang plano nitong gawin bilang senador.
“Meron bang seminar diyan o ano bang training diyan para matutunan ko ‘yung paano gawin ‘yung batas. Ano ba ang mga trabaho namin diyan sa Senado? Kung merong ganun, I will take that opportunity para matuto ako,” ani Bato sa isang pahayag sa CNN Philippines.
May mga nagpahayag ng pagkadismaya sa sagot ni Bato at nagsabing hindi ito karapat-dapat sa posisyon.
To the 18M+ Filipinos who voted for Bato, listen to him and tell us if you have given a senate seat to the correct person. Seminar? Magtatawag-tawag to know what he needs to do? Is this the kind of person who will help the country? Come on. Nakakaiyak. pic.twitter.com/lFAnAAfVrR

Sa kabila nito, mayroon ding mga nagtanggol sa kandidato na nagsabing honesty at humility ang ipinakita nito.
Ignorant people be bashing Bato’s “incompetence” when he humbly said he will take a seminar.
Most of the people who bash him are not even HALF or 1/4 as smart as he is. He has a degree in Masters of Public Administration, a Ph.D in development administration, and a PMA graduate.

May seminar naman talaga for neophyte legislators ah. Hindi naman na bago sa Congress ang may pa-seminar for the newbies. What is so wrong with Bato asking such question and choosing to take that opportunity? Buti nga willing yung tao na matuto.
You shame him for that? Wow.
