Sen. Pacquiao kinonpronta si Trillanes dahil sa mga pasaring nito - Sino kaya ang kumambyo?

A tension rose between Senator Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Trillanes after the latter gave his privilege speech wherein he defended the testimony of former SPO3 Arthur Lascañas at the hearing of Committee on Public Order and Dangerous Drugs earlier this week.
Trillanes zeroed in on some senators for thinking that they know better about “spiritual renewal.” In his testimony, Lascañas cited it as the main reason why he recanted his previous testimony belying the allegations hurled against President Duterte for his knowledge about the shadowy DDS.

Sen. Manny Pacquiao instantaneously asked Trillanes if it was him that he's referring to in his speech.

"As senators, we do not impose our morals on our resource persons. And for the record, I am not imposing my morals on SPO3 Lascañas. I was just offended with the statement of my colleague, Senator Trillanes," he said.

"Wala naman talagang santo dito. We all commit sin. Wala ni isa sa atin na hindi gumawa ng kasalanan at walang kasalanan. For the record, I did not become a saint after my spiritual renewal," Pacquiao added.

Trillanes denied that he's referring to Pacquiao and immediately apologized. He reasoned that Pacquiao was not the only senator who talked about spiritual renewal during the hearing.

"Dun sa article na 'yun, walang pangalan doon eh kasi marami, hindi lang naman si Senator Pacquiao ang nagmention about spiritual renewal," he said.

"Naging contentious point 'yung spiritual renewal. Ako, ang ano ko lang doon: why is it hard to believe na nagkaroon ng spiritual renewal 'yung tao?"

"Let me apologize to Senator Pacquiao if he was offended by the statements I made to the media but let me assure you, hindi talaga ganun ang intensyon," Trillanes added.

Pacquiao also emphasized that he never imposed anything on Lascañas.

Pacquiao ended the heated- but non-violent- skirmish by telling Trillanes to halt giving the senate a bad name through his statements.
