'Ang haba ko nag-present, wala palang volume na lumabas sa bibig ko,' said MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos. 🤦‍♀️

'Ang haba ko nag-present, wala palang volume na lumabas sa bibig ko,' says MMDA Chairman Benhur Abalos

Dwight de LeonA facepalm moment on Wednesday, July 28, prevented President Rodrigo Duterte from receiving a proposal to put Metro Manila on hard lockdown, seen to stop the spread of the more contagious Delta variant of COVID-19.Benhur Abalos, chair of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and coordinator of all Metro Manila mayors, did not realize he was mute on Zoom when he was proposing this to Duterte.

Abalos was part of Duterte's meeting on Wednesday with the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Diseases – televised with the title"Talk to the People" – to discuss measures against the Delta variant, which has ravaged other countries in Southeast Asia.

"Kahapon, tinapos namin ito, nagpunta ako sa 'Talk to the People' ng Presidente, hinarap ko. Ang problema ko mali, wala pala akong volume. Walang lumabas. Ang haba ko nag-present, wala palang volume na lumabas sa bibig ko,"said Abalos in a press conference on Thursday, July 29. headtopics.com

(We finished the meeting yesterday, then I went to the 'Talk to the People' event of the President. My problem was I was on mute. I presented for a long time but my microphone had no volume.)Abalos was supposed to report the outcome of the discussions by Metro Manila mayors earlier on Wednesday – among them a recommendation to revert to the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), the strictest form of lockdown against COVID-19.

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque confirmed Wednesday night's meeting with the President failed to discuss that proposal."Ako na po ang nagsabi kay Presidente, 'Pakinggan po natin si Chairman Abalos.' Eh noong nagsasalita noong una si Chairman Abalos, wala po siyang sounds,"

Roque said. (I told the President, let's listen to Chairman Abalos. But when Abalos started speaking, he was on mute.)Defending himself, Abalos added that Duterte’s meeting with the IATF on Wednesday night was really meant to take into consideration what was discussed by the IATF earlier in the week.

"Iyong kahapon, for the President na iyon, tapos na iyong IATF meeting. Parang prinesenta na lang nila(When we met with the president, the IATF meeting was already over, and they just presented to the president),"he said."From the technical working group, it goes to the IATF. And the IATF, it's all recommendatory to the president." headtopics.com

Earlier on Wednesday, the Metro Manila mayors unanimously agreed to propose a two-week ECQ in the National Capital Region (NCR) due to the threat of the highly transmissible Delta variant, but only if social amelioration funds were available for their poorest constituents.

If supplemental aid were not available, Abalos said he is in favor of keeping the classification of GCQ with heightened restrictions,"but with more restrictions.""Let's restrict mobility. Let's do GCQ with heightened restrictions and let us put more restrictions. We must know the character of this. But the ideal is really, to have, an ECQ for two weeks, depending if the funds of the government are available," he said in a mix of English and Filipino.

Among the curbs he proposed include barring dine-in operations in restaurants, and increasing work-from-home operations.Abalos said he was set to meet with the IATF at 2 pm on Thursday to present the MMC's recommendations.More vaccine supplyThe MMC also proposed allotting four million vaccine doses to Metro Manila, which the mayors committed to administer within two weeks.

"Approximately, we'll be having 41% of the population with two [vaccine] jabs," he said.Abalos pushed back when asked whether that would be unfair to other regions."Iyong mga highly urbanized [areas] and centers of transportation with international airports... you must protect these areas kasi dito nanggagaling ang variants," headtopics.com

he said. (Highly urbanized areas and centers of transportation with international airports must be protected because these are the entry points of the variant.)Metro Manila is seeing a drastic rise in COVID-19 cases, and experts are worried of a repeat scenario in March 2021, when the urban crawl of 14 million people was put on lockdown due to delayed response of containing the virus.

Jimparedes talaga bang mababa ang tingin nyo sa mga Pilipino? Magkanong muna kasi dapat ng: Am i audible? At hintaying may sasagot ng: No po. Youre not edible. Idiocracy: a society run by a government of idiots. Jimparedes Can we the people declare this inutile government void ab initio? Again, this kind of reasoning is insulting our intelligence. Shunga ka, at mga kasama mo sa mtg, pero hindi kme.

Jimparedes mga tangang DDS lang maniniwala sa yo! Best and brightest. That’s plain stupidity Let's go 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Tulog din ba si Duterte during the presentation? Bakit di nagreact kung walang naririnig? This is why we need younger people in government. Dinosaur na ang mga nanunungkulan. Di na makasabay sa latest technology. Eng And no one even bothered to tell him? Wow!!! 10 steps ahead nga… di ba attyharryroque ?

parang kabute ang TANGA, BOBO, at GAGO sa gabinete anu po?! tangina nyo!!! 🖕🖕🖕 Ibig sabihin niyan hindi interesado ang audience sa mga sasabihin mo. 56audrey57 isa lang pinakikingan.tatanga tanga pa Isang participant lang sa zoom na naka mute habang nagsasalita todo react na ibang participants yan pa kaya unless...

Nakaksawa na talaga! Diyos na mahabagin, sawatain Nyo po sila sa kanilang kapabayaan!

Wowowin, binigyang-pugay ang karangalan na ibinigay ni Hidilyn Diaz sa bansaMabuhay at salamat sa lahat ng sakripisyo mo Kapuso, Hidilyn Diaz! Nanalo lang ng Gold sa Olympics biglang naging kapuso na sya? 😂

Say Abalos did present. Why the hell no one called his attention that mic is muted? It is unimaginable that nobody even noticed it. It is incomprehensible that Abalos was not aware of it. That makes all attendees a bunch of idiots pretending to have a meeting but not one listens. Acting like a Governor for NCR?

yup. your lips are moving but no sound. stop grandstanding. Sa haba nun walang nagsabi sayo? So walqng nakikinig sayo? This sums up what this admin has done for the past years. So hindi ka man lang sinabihan or nag senyas ang mga kausap mo na wala kang sound Ibig sabihin ayaw ka nila pakinggan So another case of incompetency?

Tanga amputa Ang katangahan, bow🤣🤣🤣😅😅😅

Pagpugay bumuhos para kay Hidilyn Diaz matapos ang historic Olympic gold winIpinagbunyi ng mga Pilipino ang pagkapanalo ng weightlifter na si Hidilyn Diaz ng kauna-unahang Olympic gold medal sa Pilipinas, sa Summer Olympics sa Tokyo Japan. At dahil din sa kasama sya sa matrix

This is unbelievable. If you were muted while talking, then somebody should have told you that they are not hearing since you are the one presenting. BrujaDelDemonio Hindi nakakapagtaka sa mga tae 💩💩💩💩💩 Ganun na lang po yun? So Wala na lang. Walang pakialam na public health and safety ang tatamaan. Napaka.

When stupidity meets paranoia. Even a 7 year old can tell you you’re on mute after 10 seconds! Kahit ano na lang basta may ma rason So guys, siya ba ang gustong iluklok ni sir sa Senado? One of the brightest? So paano? Pinatayan ng volume ni hari syoke. Ayaw nila makinig sa proposal ni abalos. 😂😂😂 Highest stupidity!

So ibig po ba sabihin wala manlang nakapansin or walang nakikinig tlga habang nagpepresent si Chairman Kahit isa walang nagsabing wala sila naririnig? Hahaha wala silang paki sa sinasabi mo. Deadmakels ka sa lahat. It’s okay, wala naman kwenta sasabihin mo !

Ito ang pinakamahal na French fries sa buong mundoMay French fries sa isang sikat na restaurant sa New York City sa Amerika na nagkakahalaga ng P10,000. P10,000 straight to the toilet bowl! 💩

And yung mga “nakikinig?” sa presentation didn’t realize that during the entire presentation? Lol akala ko ba only the brightest? I smell bullshit. Walang gustong makinig sayo. 😂😂😂😂 This means no one is bothering to listen from the other side 🥱😵😵‍💫 Haha..eh bakit di sinabihan na naka mute..tanong lng po..

naka mute pero walang nagsabi na naka mute sya? ano ang ginawa ng ibang kasali sa meeting while he was 'talking'? nakikinig? obvious na palusot kung hindi ka nagsisinungaling ay napakatanga mo naman or iyong mga kausap mo kung hindi ka man lang sinabihan na nakamute ka. No one believes this palusot. Treating Filipinos like idiots.

And no one even brought it to his attn?!? Hindi naman kapanipaniwala unless they really didnt want the buang to hear Abalos. BasurangPulitiko

Dennis Trillo, nakikita ang sarili sa kanyang 'Legal Wives' roleMay nakikita daw na pagkakatulad si Dennis Trillo sa kanyang sarili at sa kanyang 'Legal Wives' character na si Ismael. Pagmamahal sa pamilya. ❤

There's an old saying Mr. Chairman, 'look before you leap' w/c would seem very appropriate here. Kakandidato ba siya? Parang Yung iba Salita ng Salita pero wala namang sense, Yung isa may pa cartolina, Yung isa maang-maangan at Yung isa mura ng mura. 😂 Shunga lang? 'Wag kang tumakbong senador ha at wala din kaming signal para sa iyo

Binabasa lang nila buka ng bibig mo. Ano ang basis para bumalik tayo sa ECQ? Or praning lang? NCR is the most vaccinated region. Further lockdown does not make sense. Parang wala tayong tiwala sa vaccines. Miss me with that bullshit. What a lame excuse. Ay tanga!!! Meaning walang nakikinig sa kanya!!! Wala talagang mapili sa gobyernong to!!!! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

tanga Palusot! may mga technical men na alalay dyan!! dds ka talaga! preposterous not buying it, ayaw lang siguro ng proposal mo bec it involves ayuda, or they cld hve alerted u in so many ways It means walang nkikinig. Problema tlaga nila paano sila magcommunicate lol Well..walang nakapansin dahil wala rin nakikinig!!! Ano bang klaseng gobyerno yan!!

Sus walang nakapansin sa meeting niyo? Good for us. 🙈 Ben-Unheard Abalos

Dumb excuse. The others present would have noticed and asked you to turn the volume on. BOBO! Tang Ina Mo! BrujaDelDemonio sama-samang mga bingi o tanga? Gago lang talaga ang maniniwala sa palusot na ganito... Or didishite. Sa totoo lang. Walang volume? Baka walang nakapansin kasi wala ding nakikinig. So kasalanan ng dilawan yan.

Tatakbong senador, yung Zoom di nga maayos e. Yung bansa pa kaya. 🖕🏽 Ok. Another digital version of my dog ate my homework. How many HCWs, citizens are going to get sick (or die) kasi naka-mute sa Zoom? Seriously Ibang level sila.🤦🤦🤦 You don't matter to them hahahaha 😂🤣😂

So, all Duterte does is do nothing. Kung di PNoy yan, sigurado hands on sa command centre. 🤡🤡🤡🤡 dava Sino tanga? Yung mga mura at maling info hindi pinuputol. Tapos nakamute yung may mahalagang info. 🙄 How on earth are these people in charge of the country? LIAR Sinadya yun 🤣🤣🤣 ang galing ng mga nasa gobyerno ngayon klap klap klap

So the entire time he was speaking no one was listening? So because of this dumbassery, we are risking another outbreak? Really? At bakit kailangan nyo mag present ng pa-isa-isa? Ano ito middleages? Send him a memo, hindi yan hari. wtf

this is BS! wala man lang pumuna sa kanya na walang nakakarinig sa kanya?!? gagawa na lang din kayo nang palusot, palpak pa! Wala talaga. Pakainin mo lahat ng nagugutom para may saysay Hinde ba pwede irefer uli sa IATF? Final na ba pag once sinabi GCQ Aug 1-15, yun n yun? First few words pa lang na walang volume call na kagad attention mo to unmute. Kawawa talaga ang taumbayan sa inyo!
