10 #Shady Online Reactions to Tito Sotto's Election as Senate President
The Senate was...na-ano na lang.
(SPOT.ph) To say that many Filipinos were shocked at the news of Sen. Tito Sotto's new status as Senate president on May 21 is a huge understatement. Nominated to the position by the previous Senate president Koko Pimentel himself, many were astounded at how a man known for plagiarizing speeches, belittling single mothers, and allegedly covering up a minor's gang rape can be two seats away from the highest office in the land.
Of course, several reacted to Sotto's promotion the way Filipinos typically deal with difficult news—through humor. Many took to the Internet to vent about their frustration on the matter, but a few were able to do so while making those around them howl in laughter. Here are 10 of the most hilarious responses that prove that if there's one good thing to come out of this mess, it's another opportunity to hone your shade game.
