I think it will be timely, reasonable and important to invite celebrity senatorial frontrunners (Bong Revilla, Jingoy Estrada, Tito Sotto, Lito Lapid) and other Showbiz people like Lani Mercado, Lucy Torres, and Roderick Paulate to grace your shows. These winners hardly went on your many Harapan forums yet they topped and handily won the elections. That’s something interesting that Pia Hontiveros, Tina Palma, Ces Drillon, Antony Taberna, and Tony Velasquez might want to delve into in their respective shows.
Moreover, it’s about time that these elected leaders expound how they plan to translate their platforms, how they will defend themselves from issues against celebrity politicians, and generally how they argue their points outside their taping and filming experience without the aid of a director and a script.
