BF likened to Forrest Gump?

Jojo Robles, publisher and columnist of Manila Standard Today, again, took a shot at Bayani Fernando about the MMDA Chairman’s contradictory statements regarding the speed limit on EDSA. read the column here.

The blurb says it all.

The breath-taking stupidity of Bayani Fernando defies comprehension.

The blurb was taken from the last paragraph of the column which lambasted the presidentiable MMDA Chairman.

The breath-taking stupidity of this petty bureaucratic martinet with presidential dreams defies comprehension. It makes Forrest Gump himself sound like a genius.

Robles, somehow, likened Bayani Fernando to Forrest Gump, that loveable character that has been immortalized by Tom Hanks. Gump can be said to be retarded but he had a brilliance in him that made him great.

we can categorically say that Bayani Fernando has his own share of brilliance, especially on how he changed Marikina. and wow, he’s in the Top Four of Celebrity Duets. what an accomplishment, ‘di ba?

i completely agree with Robles that Bayani Fernando’s recent grandstanding jousts on the news has only made him more like Gump, a complete brilliant moron. hay. it won’t be good for his presidential aspirations.
