Comedian Vice Ganda reveals that some political parties are inviting him to run for senator. The It’s Showtime host candidly mentioned this tidbit during the show yesterday.
On January 10 episode of It’s Showtime, Vice Ganda talked about politics with his fellow Showtime host and Makati City councilor, Jhong Hilario. Vice teased Jhong: “Si Jhong naguguluhan na talaga siya kung anong imahe niya aktor siya, komedyante siya, dancer siya tapos mare-realize niya, ‘ay teka lang, politiko pala ako,”
Vice then also joked about running for president. “Kakandidato talaga akong presidente ng Pilipinas, promise. Dalawang eleksyon pa, kakandidato ako tapos presidente talaga agad,”
He continued: “Kapag nanalo ako, isa lang ibig sabihin – sira ulo talaga kayong lahat! Wala talagang kakuwenta-kuwenta ang mga bumuboto sa Pilipinas. Kapag nanalo pa naman ako talaga,”
After all the jokes, Vice then shared that he received invitations to run as a senator. “Maraming kumukuha nga sa akin. May kumuha sa aking partido para sa senador. Sabi ko ‘Sira-ulo ba kayo?’ Sabi, ‘Mananalo ka.’ ‘O, ngayon, ‘pag mananalo, tatakbo?’”
Vice Ganda is one of the most loved personalities of the country, and celebrities entering politics in the country isn’t anything new. Richard Gomez, Tito Sotto, Vilma Santos are just few examples of TV personalities who are also politicians.
However, Vice clearly has no plans of taking advantage of his popularity and use it for politics.
