Comedienne Ethel Booba was at it again in her penchant for speaking her mind about various issues. This time she gave her two cents about Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s proposition on no term limits for lawmakers.

The former president and current House Speaker said that it was a “collegial decision” for the House draft of the proposed federal constitution, which does not provide term limits for both congressmen and senators. However, it did include the provision that lawmakers should be college degree holders.

Not being afraid to speak her mind, Booba started with a serious tone in her Twitter post Saturday: “On GMA’s draft Federal Constitution she includes no term limits on all lawmakers.”


She then went on why Arroyo would include the proposal: “Wow! Feeling ko nahiya lang sya idagdag na idecriminalize ang graft, plunder and corruption. Charot!”

(Wow! I have a feeling she was just shy to include decriminalizing graft, plunder and corruption!)

Her post has erupted with around 1,000 retweets and  4,500 likes as of this writing, even as netizens also spoke about Arroyo’s proposal.

A netizen named Pol Lisya did not back down hitting the lawmaker.”Hindi kailanman mahihiya ang taong wala naman talagang hiya (A person with no shame  will never, ever feel shame). Haha!” s/he said.


Meanwhile, paul paul praised Booba’s opinion, saying, “God Save Ethyl Gabison (Booba’s real name)”

And Robert (@TilawiSa) agreed with Booba’s statement. “Nahiya pa siya sa ginawa niya (She was even shy about what she did).”

Booba is known to drop her opinions, whether on political or social issues, through tweets with a comic touch.  /ra
