Suspended Makati Mayor Junjun Binay believes comments made against his family on social media are mostly from people who are paid by their political opponents.

"Bakit social media ang magiging batayan? Gaano kadami ang nasa social media? Hindi tama yan. Ang dami-daming puwedeng bayaran para maging 'trolls'. It cannot reflect the true sentiment of the people," said Binay.

Binay, however, answered some of the viewers questions posted on social media during ANC's Headstart. One of them was the Binay camps' slight against 'rookie politicans' running for public office.

Ked Adriano asked, "Sinabi ng tatay mo na dapat may experience ang mag dapat namumuno ng ating bansa. Ano ang iyong sagot na wala rin daw experience ang iyong kapatid na si Sen. Nancy Binay?"

It was a question Binay quickly dismissed.

"Mali naman 'yung tanong na yun. Siya naman ay laging kasama ng tatay ko," said the suspended mayor.

The question was in reference to the possible opponent of Binay's father in 2016, Sen. Grace Poe, who has toppled Vice President Jejomar Binay in recent polls.

"Ano ba tinakbuhan ni Grace? Eh hindi naman senador tinatakbuhan niya. Kapatid ko, ang tinakbuhan senador. Bakit sasabihing wala siyang experience, eh katulong siya ng tatay ko. Nakita niya kung pano magtrabaho tatay ko and what it's like working in government," explained Binay.
