Tanga ka pala eh: Alvarez blasts De Lima for saying Duterte can be impeached for ‘killing criminals’

Tanga ka pala eh

House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has called Senator Leila de Lima “tanga” or stupid for saying that President Rodrigo Duterte could be impeached for boasting that he used to kill criminals during his days as Davao City mayor.
“Hindi lang siya sinungaling tanga din pala,” the outspoken Alvarez said, referring to De Lima.
According to Alvarez, mere words of the president can’t be made the basis of an impeachment complaint or procedure–the offense has to be proven first.
“You cannot just impeach an official for mere words you have to prove the offense. What if the President will say ‘I was only joking?'” the Speaker pointed out.
In a business forum in Manila Monday, Duterte bared that he used to patrol streets in Davao as mayor and “looked for trouble” so that he “could kill” criminals.
Alvarez and Duterte both belong to PDP-Laban and are longtime friends.
