Through a live Facebook video posted last Tuesday, action star Robin Padilla lambasted Senate minority leader Franklin Drilon along with his political stalwarts in the Liberal Party. Padilla's blasting has stemmed from a certain DZMM radio interview where Senator Drilon, according to the action star, was allegedly grandstanding and boastful. 

"Ang aga aga nadinig ko sa radyo si Senator Drilon at nagpapabida nanaman po dun sa DZMM at pinalalabas nanaman po niya na kaniyang pinagtatanggol ang saligang batas. Yun eh. Ang laging dating nito eh defender of our constitution," Padilla preluded warily in the said Facebook video. 


Frustrated by the way Drilon along with his LP cohorts portray themselves as the so-called "defenders" of the Constitution, Padilla implicitly pointed out the party's hypocrisy especially in the Bangsa-Moro Basic Law (BBL), by mentioning the controversial Disbursement Acceleration Program (DAP) of the previous Aquino administration affirming that it is unconstitutional. 

"Ang tanong ko lang dito sa taong ito bago pag usapan natin si BBL, baka nakakalimutan niyo na yung ginawa niyo diyan sa DAP. Mr. Franklin Drilon yun pong ginawa niyo sa DAP yun po ay labag sa constitution," Padilla claimed.

Senator Drilon and generally, the Libera Partys stance on the BBL and charter change endeavors of the current Duterte administration, is the root cause of Padillas wariness. It is public knowledge that Padilla is a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte and is a proponent of governmental shift to federalism.

Unconvinced by Drilons rationalization, Padilla commented: "O ngayon, mabalik tayo sa kasalukuyan, ang pinaguusupan kanina ang binibida ninyo, ang pinagtatanggol ninyo ang saligang batas diyan sa BBL. Hindi ba kayo nahihiya? Ako kasi nahihiya ako para sa inyo eh. Masyado akong nahihiya para sa inyo kasi ang lalakas ng loob niyo magsalita na, Hindi ako papayag na malabag ang konstitusyon." 

The concerned video lasted for about 30 minutes. It also where Padilla gave Drilon a brief history lesson where he acknowledged Filipino ancestors as animists.

Also discussed in the said live video were Padillas sentiments on Bangsamoro Basic Law and Federalism.

Acknowledging the root of the debacle, Padilla pointed out that the chaos Philippines is currently facing is actually caused by the malfunctioning and shortcoming of the previous Aquino administration specifically the leadership of the Liberal Party.

"Ito talagang LP ang gugulo niyo. Kayo ang kumokontra sa bagay na kayo ang nag umpisa. Ang BBL panahon pa yan ng LP, pakana yan ni Noynoy Aquino na sila rin sumabotahe kaya hindi ho yan natuloy, kaya ngayon tinutuloy ni mayor," Padilla warily stated.

Conclusively, the action star urged the Liberal Party to conform to what the public demands instead of constantly shaming themselves publicly. As he had said in his Facebook video:

"Ibigay ho natin ang hinihingi ng mga taong nauna sa atin dito, sila ho talaga ang may ari nito, at napakaliit lang po ng teritoryo Mahiya naman po tayo."
