Kakampink asking for tubig? Here’s how Gordon treated a Robredo supporter
RICHARD GORDON – The senatorial candidate scolded a Kakampink asking for water during a campaign rally.
Gordon is seeking a senatorial post anew.
He’s running for senator under the ticket of Vice President Leni Robredo and Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan.
During a campaign rally in Pampanga, one of the Kakampinks asked for water while he’s giving a speech.
However, he got pissed off.
“Wala kang pambili (ng tubig)? Will you shut up right now I’ll tell you that, If you want water you come over here, nangugulo ka eh,” he said.
Gordon’s actions were criticized on social media for allegedly not showing respect to his fellow Kakampink.
But a netizen defended Gordon because according to him, there were some who actually attended the rally who continued to shout ‘water’ even though it was disturbing the speaking candidates.
“It’s disappointing really that Sen Gordon‘s like that. However, I also experienced SOME kakampinks at rallies being unruly with TUBIG TUBIG knowing they should’ve prep before joining the crowd,” said @msterliam.
Meanwhile, Gordon is a lawyer and politician serving as a senator since 2016. He is also the chairman and chief executive officer of the Philippine Red Cross since 2004.
He rose to national prominence for his work in preserving and developing the former U.S. Naval Base in Subic when he served as the first chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority from 1992 to 1998, and when he conceptualized the Wow Philippines campaign as Secretary of Tourism from 2001 to 2004.
Gordon was the mayor of Olongapo from 1980 to 1986 and from 1988 to 1993, and was also the youngest delegate to the 1971 Constitutional Convention.
