- Ogie Diaz took to Facebook and revealed that he is accepting the challenge to represent Former SC Justice Antonio Carpio in a debate with Harry Roque
- A netizen posted a side by side photo of Roque and Ogie Diaz and said that if Roque will represent Duterte, then Ogie will represent Justice Carpio
- The comedian then accepted the challenge and jokingly said that he would make "tampo" towards the President
- He said that if the President agreed after Carpio accepted his challenge, then he would not need to represent Carpio
Ogie Diaz accepted the challenge of a netizen for him to represent Former SC Justice Antonio Carpio in the debate with Harry Roque, who was appointed by the President.
The netizen put the photos of Roque's "debate appointment" and the photo of Ogie Diaz side by side, with a caption, "Ang sagot ni Justice Carpio: Kung si Roque ang representative ni Digong, si Ogie Diaz ang proxy nya... walang kukurot below the belt... Fight!!"
Ogie accepted the challenge and said:
"Di ko to kinaya. Hahaha! Anong kinalaman ko dito? Pero sige, call.
Kala ko kasi, G na G ang Pangulo, dahil siya naman ang naghamon, eh. Ready daw siya anytime, eh. Tapos, magre-resign daw siya pag napatunayang nagsisinungaling siya.
Tapos, na-realize ng mga nakapaligid kay Pangulo, di magka-level sina Duterte at Carpio. Eh sino ba kasi nakaisip ng hamunan na yan?"
He further added that he will be making tampo towards the President because had he called the acceptance of Justice Carpio of the challenge, he would not need to research and get dragged into the issue.
"Ayan tuloy. Hindi nyo maiaalis sa akin ngayon na magtampo ako sa Pangulong Duterte.
Kasi, kung kinol niya ang pagpayag ni Justice Carpio, sila sana ang nagdebate at hindi sana ako nadamay sa isyung ito.
Tingnan nyo yan. I need to research pa. Paghahandaan ko pa tuloy ang debate namin ni Roque.
Haaay. Andami ko nang problema, dumagdag pa ito. Isisingit ko pa tuloy itong debate sa hectic sked ko.
Pwede ba, pagkatapos ng debate namin ni Roque, next time, wala nang hamunan?
Napapasubo tuloy ako, eh. Di bale sana kung sa ibang sitwasyon ako mapasubo, eh."
