(SPOT.ph) Despite the legal complications and the tedious testimonies, the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona got more than its fair share of media attention last week. That was surprising since the Lady Gaga brouhaha was at its peak and Jessica Sanchez's American Idol journey was heating up at around the same time. Corona himself added more drama (for lack of a better word) to the whole ordeal—what with an opening statement that lasted nearly three hours and then his "walk-out" on Tuesday, May 22. Corona cited health reasons (hypoglycemia, diabetes) for his abrupt departure from the Senate session hall—but a number of netizens weren't buying it. The result? A meme that pokes fun at the recent turn of events in the Corona impeachment saga, which is supposed to end this week.
