Harry Roque takes swipes at Vice Ganda: Maling ikumpara ang bakuna sa sabong panlaba


- Advertisment -

In his latest press conference, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque seemed to take a swipe at ABS-CBN comedian Vice Ganda following criticism on selecting Covid-19 vaccine. 

“Mali namang ikumpara ang bakuna sa sabong panlaba. Wala namang supply na ganun kadami,” Roque said. 

“Kung hindi pagtitiwalaan ang mga expert, na tatlong batches pa ng experts ang magsasabing pwede nating gamitin yan, sino ang ating pagkakatiwalaan? Siguro po hindi mga komedyante?” Roque further added. 

Vice Ganda, through his Twitter account on January 12, tweeted the following words: “Sa sabong panlaba nga choosy tayo eh sa bakuna pa kaya? Ano to basta may maisaksak lang? Vaklang twoooaahhh!!!” 

The comedian’s statement came after Malacanan said that Filipinos cannot choose the specific brand of Covid-19 they want to be injected with. 

On January 11, Roque pointed out that the public cannot be picky with their vaccines they will get as a larger number of residents need to be vaccinated against the deadly disease. 

“Totoo po, meron tayong lahat na karapatan para sa mabuting kalusugan pero hindi naman po pwede na pihikan dahil napakaraming Pilipino na dapat turukan,” he said.
