Sometimes people forgot what they have said. The art of denial includes the question of disbelief, Did I say that ?
Before the death of the late Angelo Reyes, Trillanes made this statement:
Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV on Tuesday named former Defense secretary Angelo Reyes as the “powerful person" behind alleged plunderer Carlos Garcia, a former Armed Forces comptroller accused of amassing P303.27 million in ill-gotten wealth while still in active service.
After the death of the late General, he said:
MANILA, Philippines—The late former Armed Forces Chief of Staff Angelo Reyes was not the “powerful person” behind accused plunderer Carlos Garcia but probably somebody much higher than he, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV said on Thursday.http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakingnews/nation/view/20110210-319600/Reyes-not-the-brains-of-Garcia-plunderTrillanes
Hearsay? Speculation? Judging without solid evidence. Witchhunting?
He could easily say, Did I say that? but the news said otherwise.
Because of the latest incident in the committee where Trillanes practically embarrassed the late General by fuming mad and interrupting Reyes, who complained that his reputation was being besmirched by Rabusa:
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stubbornly clung to the presidency late Thursday night, refusing in a highly anticipated speech to step down by saying he does not take orders from anyone outside Egypt.When booed by the people for not stepping down, he was short to saying, Did I say that?
However, Mubarak said he would "delegate powers" to Vice President Omar Suleiman, according to the constitution -- a major concession from the man who has ruled Egypt with an iron fist for 30 years.
Sharon Cuneta lambasted Hayden Kho for tweeting:
There's a billboard ad in Edsa developed by advertisers who think consumers are stupid. Guess."Instead of saying, did I say that, Hayden Kho tweeted:
"Wow! i wasn't referring to the MF billboard. I was referring to a "L**D" that's supposed to be a LOURDES. Dahan dahan naman po."Naku pinopopo si Sharon, na halos kaedad ni Vicki Belo.
I lost weight (subo ng cookie)but I do not look like Sharon Cuneta (subo ng M&M) yet. Kaunti pa.(inom ng rootbeer) Kagaya ni Jennifer Hudson, she lost 80 lbs bago nakita ang kaniyang baywang.
Did I say that? (subo ng skyflakes with peanut butter).
