VP Leni gamely acquiesced to their request and patiently posed with each one of the staff of BalitaOneNan.
In the video posted by John on Facebook, he narrated what transpired earlier.
“So iyon na, nabulabog kami. Nagti-taping kami sa kabilang studio ng BalitaOneNan, eh nandito si Ma'am Leni, di ba nakakaloka. Nataranta itong buong Reliance sa TV5,” John said.
He then pointed to his staff and identified some of them, at the same time telling the VP that they’re actually having a taping.
“Tingnan mo yung mga cast ko oh, Ma'am si Alex yan naka-wig lang. Nagti-taping kami ngayon Ma'am. BalitaOneNan Ma'am, bale ano, news show na spoof,” the actor-host and comedian added.
John then expressed his elation at the visit, pointing out that VP Leni was patient enough to have her photo taken with each one of them.
“Grabe nagkagulo rito jusko Lord. Nakakaiyak. Ayan lahat kami pinagbigyan niya in fairness. Good luck Ma'am Leni. Nakakaloka diba,” John said.
In his caption, John said this is the first time he saw the VP in person again after the 2016 elections.
“Now lang ulit kami nagkita after campaigning for her sa 2016 election. Diyos ko hindi sya talaga umaalis hanggat may nagpapapicture pa. Salamat Mam @bise_leni Happy to see you again. God bless po,” John wrote in his caption.
Jonathan Anthony Solis Lapus, more popularly known as John or Sweet Lapus, is a Pinoy comedian, actor, host, and director. He is the brother of Bianca Lapus. John is known for his roles in many films like Shake, Rattle & Roll.
Last year, John took to Twitter and gave a strong reaction to the announcement of Sen. Manny Pacquiao that he would be running for President. The comedian aired his sentiments and said, "mga bakla!," addressing some members of the LGBTQ community. He then added, "Wag kalimutan, sinabihan tayo nyan ng Masahol pa sa Hayop." Sen. Pacquiao has openly declared that he would be running for President in 2022, but there is still no word from him who would be on his slate.
He also had tweeted in the past about the condition of President Rodrigo Duterte. This was after the Philippine leader went together with Bong Go in filing the latter's Certificate of Candidacy. The comedian was actually asking for divine help because the President is now being assisted. Pres. Duterte is already 76 years old and perhaps what he is showing is also a natural part of his age.
