Laughter, they say, is the best medicine. That is why he is thanking the rival camp, Team Asenso, for giving him a hundred and one reasons to laugh the whole afternoon at their cheap propaganda ploy on social media, saying that he has withdrawn from the vice mayoralty race in support of their candidate, Bacolod Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran said in a statement yesterday.
It’s purely wishful thinking, he said.
“What made the supposed DNX News post and that of a troll named Amotts Prestige more laughable was an apparently photoshopped image of me wearing a white ‘Asenso Bacolod’ shirt,” Familiaran said.
To the creators of this propaganda material, try harder, he said.
To paraphrase the battle cry of my supporters and Grupo Progreso, “Indi Kami Mag Bulag. Indi Kami Mag Bulag. Kay Vice Mayor El Cid Lang Kami” (We are not blind. We are only supporting Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran).
“Let our service and progress continue,” Familiaran called on the Team Pulahan’, Red Warriors, and Tumandoks of Bacolod.
“Tuloy Ang Laban!” (Let us continue the fight), he added.*
