10 Pinoy Movie Lines That are Perfect for Grace Poe Right Now

"I-pack mo na yang si Lucy Torres mo! Ilabas mo na diyan si Gretchen Barretto!"


(SPOT.ph) The most festive month of the year didn't seem to start on a good note for presidential candidate Sen. Grace Poe after she was disqualified by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) on December 1 from the 2016 national elections. Poe and her lawyers remain firm and said they would appeal. Meanwhile, the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET) has affirmed on December 3 its decision upholding Poe’s status as a natural-born citizen, junking the reconsideration plea filed by petitioner Rizalito David.


People were quick to conclude that #WalangPoereber, but here are a few movie lines that we think would be quite appropriate for the former Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) Chair.
