Sen. Antonio Trillanes 4th

NETIZENS fired broadsides at pro-administration  for his remarks maligning the poor on Thursday.

Trillanes was interviewed by reporters after he and members of the Senate blue ribbon sub-committee inspected a sprawling property in Rosario, Batangas, which he insists belongs to Vice President Jejomar Binay.

The interview was posted on Youtube and shared in social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.

“Nakita natin ‘yung karangyaan nitong lugar na ito at gusto ko ngang maipakita na ito, dalawang pagkatao nito ni Vice President Binay na nagpapakita siya na mahirap siya, kulay-mahirap, na asal-mahirap, pero ‘yun pala mayroon siyang sikretong mundo na, ito nga, na karangyaan. So diyan niyo makikita ‘yung pagbabalatkayo ng taong ito [The luxury of the place betrays the two personalities of Vice President Binay. He projects himself as poor, because of his complexion and demeanor, when he has a secret world of opulence. You can see Binay’s masquerade here],” Trillanes told reporters.


The terms “kulay mahirap” and “asal mahirap” angered the netizens who slammed the senator for the slur.

“Being poor is nothing to be ashamed of. However Sen. Trillanes’ comment re kulay mahirap suddeny seemed so offensive. Talked about being two-faced,” one of them posted in Twitter.

Another netizen asked: “Pag maitim ba mahirap na agad? [Does being dark mean being poor?] Respeto naman Senator Trillanes.”

“Just because you have brown-skin kulay mahirap na? Hiyang-hiya naman sayo ang mga pinoy, Sen.Trillanes!” a tweet in the micro-blogging site said.

A blogger also asked: “Asal mahirap, kulay mahirap, hiyang hiya naman ako sa sinabi ni Trillanes. Siya kaya? Asal mayaman? At kulay mayaman?”

In the same video, a visibly fuming Trillanes was seen shouting at Chinese-Filipino businessman Antonio Tiu when the senator and his group were initially refused entry by caretakers of the Sunchamp Agri-Tourism Park.

“Anong gimik na naman ito? [What are you up to this time]?” he asked Tiu when the businessman arrived at the farm.

When asked to comment on the slur, Cavite Gov. Jonvic Remulla, the Vice President’s spokesman onpolitical concerns, said Trillanes’ attitude only showed that his agenda is anti-poor.

Trillanes “thinks very lowly of poor people,” Remulla told The Manila Times in a text message.

  1. Kulay Mayaman at Asal Mayaman na si Taellanes dahil nakatanggap sya ng Milyong Milyong pisong suhol mula sa hari ng Korapsyon na Presidente. Ganito kaestupido ang mga Pilipino ngayon. Noong panahon ni erap nagbalato lang ng tigisang milyon sa 2 senador mula sa pera ng sugal, maraming nagalit na pinoy at yun 2 senador hindi nanalo, pero etong Hari ng magnanakaw na presidente nagsuhol ng milyong milyon pera ng bayan mula sa Illegal na DAP walang nagalit at nanalo pa lahat ng tumanggap na senador. Ganyan hari ng kabobohan ang mga makapenoy ngayon. Kaya magdusa kayo sa katangahan nyo.

  2. Dahil sa sobrang katangahan ng mga estupidong Pilipino, sa kabila ng 2 beses na nanghostage si taellanes at pagtanim ng bomba sa oakwood, at pagtataksil sa bayan sa mga intsik ibinoto pa din. Ganyan katanga ang mga bumoto kay taellanes, bumanat lang kay gloria noon na hanggang ngayon ginagamit pa din niya ang issue ni gloria, ibinoto pa ng mga gungong ng 2 beses, pweee… Diyan nasasalamin kung gaano nagpapatanga ang mga gungong na pilipino kasama na ang Hari ng magnanakaw na presidente na kaya lumalaki ang ulong magnakaw dahil sa suporta ng mga sira ulong Pilipino. Dapat pala manghostage na tayong lahat para sikat at maging kagalang galang na senador na idolo ng mga kabataan.

  3. go lang senator trillanes ganyan talaga ang gumagawa ng mabuti para sa bayan maraming kaaway dahil maraming perang pambayad ang kalaban mo kaya marami karing kaaway pero marami rin kaming nagnanais na mabago at mawala ang mga magnanakaw sa gobyerno kaya tuloy mo lang ang ipinaglalaban mo nasa likod mo kami at handang makiisa sa iyong hangaring mabago ang ating bayan God bless you senator….

    • ulol, anong mabute ang nagawa ni taellanes, matapos manghostage ng 2 beses at magtanin ng bomba, at magpabagsak ng ekonomiya ibinoto pa din ng mga gunggong na gaya mo. pweeee… bobo…

  4. And now it is already starting to backfire! Kitang kita na man sa mukha ni Trillanes na bastos siya, walang modo,di marunung rumespeto, sinungaling at arogante!

  5. Kung intindihin nyo ang sinsabi nya, wala syang sinabi na anti poor sya. C binay ang gusto ng nagpa mukha nito para mapagtakpan ang karangyaan nyang buhay. Ang mga proyekto ni sen trillanes ay nakatuon sa mga kapus palad natin mga kababayan Gaya ng med assistance at scholarship para sa estudyanteng walang kakayahan makapag-aral. Gawa- gawa na naman ng mga kampo ni binay to para makuha ang simpatya ng mga mahihirap

  6. Si VP din ang nagsabi nyan na kakulay nya ang mahihirap ang gustong ipaabot ni Sen. Trillanes sa taong bayan ay ang pagkukunwari ni VP na mahirap siya yun pala mayron pala itinatagong karangyaan sa buhay. sige pa Sen. Trillanes kalkalin mo hanggang isuka ng mga yan ang mga kinurakot nila. mga kakampi lang ni ulikba ang mga nag rereact na yan..

    … Trillanes is a fake ! , even b4 he was jailed a very reliable columnist Ramon Tulfo of PDI WAS ALREADY EXPOSING TRILLANES about his string of luxury cars and SUVs, and other businesses he was involved in using intimidation … even Gen. Danny Lim was never a part of the Oakwood mutiny, napilitan yun si Danny at natutukan… i will never be surprise that this fake will be assassinated by the radical YOU , i will never be surprise, just like the assassination of another fake Baron Cervantes, i was never surprise about that assassination …

  8. ariel beliza nolasco on

    i think the context of sen trillianes’ statements attributes only to the vice president. i don’t think that he is anti-poor. he is alluding to the vice president as somebody who is projecting himself as poor. said statements refer only to binay but not to all poor people. that is what the senator is trying to project and that is his perception. on the other hand, the vice president may be perceived BUT he may not be intentionally projecting such image. seemingly, it’s a battle of wit and propaganda between the two gentlemen. the issue here and context is the context, not basically the intent of actually slamming the poor. let us be objective on things. we cannot just simply fault neither the senator not the vice president. let us read between the lines. nothing more.

  9. Tama lang mg imbestiga Sen. Trillanes at sana tratuhin ninyo ang mga resource persons ng may dignidad. Paano po kung ang mga negosyanteng ito ay mag alisan sa Pilipinas? Anong gagawin natin?Respeto lang po Sen. Trillanes. Isama nyo narin ang imbestigasyon sa PDAF, DAP at Malampaya Fund Scam para walang masabi ang mga oposisyon. Good luck po!

  10. ang alam ko di kay trillanes nanggaling ang salitang, KULAY MAHIRAP AT ASAL MAHIRAP. nabasa ko yan b4 na si binay ang nag start nyan, propaganda nya, na galing sya sa mahirap na pamilya, makamahirap, asal mahirap, kulay mahirap, at makatao, nabasa ko yan b4 di ko lang bingyan pansin. yan ang pampa attract ni binay sa mga mahihirap na pinupuntahan nya, wala ako pinapanigan sa kanila kasi pareparehas naman sila mga magnanakaw.

  11. sumosobra na si trillanes. personalan na ang ginagawa nya. nawalan na rin ako ng tiwala at paghanga sa kanya. akala mo kung magsalita, siya lang ang tama at wala siyang ginawang masama. tingnan natin kung siya ang maging presidente kung kaya niyang maalis ang korapsyon sa pilipinas. bakit kasi sa NCR at malalking politico lang ang tinitira ng korupyon? dapat pati rin sa LGUs. dahil magmula janitor at sa mayor at sa governor at congressman ay corrupt din sila..

  12. If it is true that the “RICH DO NOT WANT THE POOR TO RISE” … The late Pres. Cory Cojuangco Aquino of the RICH COJUANGCO-AQUINO FAMILY would HAVE NOT APPOINTED the POOR JEJOMAR BINAY as OIC in MAKATI … Is it not ? … sa bagay ang taong tumatanda na ay nakakalimutan ang nakaraan … lalong-lalo na kung ang inaatupag ay pagkamal ng mga material na bagay dito sa mundo !!!

  13. I think the statement of Sen. Trillanes about “ASAL MAHIRAP , KULAY MAHIRAP” was taken out of context . Since majority of the voters are “MAHIRAP” like me , VP Binay is projecting himself as one of us “MAHIHIRAP” inspite of his ALLEGED HIDDEN WEALTH . In fact , he tried to capitalize on these “PHRASES” in one of his speeches by saying that ” THE RICH DO NOT WANT US POOR TO RISE ” !!! … Twisting the MEANING OF A STATEMENT can easily be done, by an ambitious intelligent man, in his favor.

  14. juan f manaois on

    It seems even the press are diverted on the issue of Napoles Lists, Abad Lists, The Illegal/unconstitutional use of DAP an PDAF. Should media – Print and broadcast stop or stay away from trillanes maybe the White, rich senator (according to hm you are poor because you are black or dark complexioned} would stop blowing winds. His AGENDA is very clear political mileage for him, demolition job where his expertise having been a military and of course media mileage.

  15. Trillanes tumigil ka nga yabang mo. Mulat mula
    Pa abusado ka pati mga sundalo inabuso
    Mo. Mapag samantala ka pati pamilya mo
    Nanalo ka lang sa senado dahil sa daya,
    dinaya na pasang awa ka pa kulelat. Sige nga
    Tu mambo ka ng presidente para lampasuin
    Ka. Sana tubuan ka ng pikas sa ilong.

  16. trellanes just want to point out the lies of binay..,bda nag asta mahirap nga c vp?nagkakamay na kumain kasama sa mga mahihirap, nag lalakad sa mga bangketa,..etc..etc.etc

  17. Nakita ninyo naman ang ugali ni mutineer trilla ines. madaling mainis gusto agad agad makuha nya gusto nya asal barumbado. nag request si pimentel na ma inspect yung hacienda ang sagot ni mutineer trilla ines agad agad kinabukasan. para raw di na mabago ko yung lugar(TAWANAN NGA YUNG MGA AUDIENCE) asal walang modo talaga. pag ito naging president sigurado martial law agad dahil sa pinakitang ugali sa mga nagdaang pagdinig ng senado. nangigipit ng tao at nananakot.

  18. dyan mo makikita ang tunay na ugali ni Trillanes.akala mo kung sinong makaasta. itim naman ang budhi.halata talaga na pang sariling interes lang ang nasa isip!!! ang kapal ng mukha mo Trillanes!!!

  19. I think the netizens are wrong in portraying Trillanes anti poor. He was describing Binay’s personality. That’s all. In fact Trillanes, Mercado, Cayetano, Pimentel should be appreciated for their guts in exposing anomalies on government. I am an OFW and do not have leaning towards politics but for the benefit of our country. I will vote for individual who have strong personality, God fearing, qualified, experience and good communicator.

  20. Sen. Antionio is a straight person and he is intelligent as well and i proud of him. Those against of Sen. Trillanes did not understand his point of view, instead diverting his word into real situation but not thinking the way the VP is assuming his persona. I suggest that the Filipino must have that balance spirit on themselves.

  21. Ano naman aasahan mo sa isang duwag…ni hindi nga pumasok ng Philippine Marines katulad ng mga mistah nya na na.assign sa PN eh. Kuntento na sa pagiging procurement officer.

  22. Binay, how about the housing agencies you are handling? Bakit nakakalusot ang mga violating developers na kinukurakot ang pinaghirapan naming pera makabili lang ng bahay na may questionable integrity??

  23. Geraldine Joan Deen-Toyne on

    Hindi mayaman si Trillanes. Galing sya sa middle class family. People are just too sensitive on what he said. Attacking Binay is not attacking the poor. Do not read between the lines, understand it first before reacting.

  24. Just a reminder to Senatong Trillones that majority of his votes came from the people that he calls kulay mahirap. As you knew very well that you won’t be in that position it not because of those asal mahirap. So you better shut up.

  25. Just a reminder to senatong trillones that majority of his votes came from the poor people that he calls, You won’t be in that position if not because of the kulay mahirap so better shut up

  26. Okay lang na asal mahirap, wag lang katulad ni Trillanes na asal hayop. Tingnan mo, nung una sabi niya kaibigan niya si Tiu. Pero nung sumabit at pilit nilang ikinakabit kay Binay, nilaglag niya. Ganyan ang asal ahas! Traydor! Bastos pa, conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. Akala mo kung sinong matapang eh wala naman siyang medal of valor or commendation nung nasa military service siya. Puro kayabangan lang.

  27. i find him to be the most arrogant person i ever knew. wala ka nang maaasahang boto sa mga mahihirap na kagaya namin.

  28. Trillanes is only a flea on the back of a carabao yet he shamelessly exudes the pride of a carabao. Since the day he was bankrolled by the Yellow rich to declare his Oakwood uprising, or was it at the Makati Peninsula, he is now acting as one of the rich. Probably, he and his band of military opportunists were given millions making them, especially Trillanes, a rich guy. His demeanor humiliating Tiu during the senate sub-committee investigations reminds me of what he has done to Gen. Angelo Reyes, which unfortunately led to his suicide. Pure display of ARROGANCE. I can only surmise that the once-hollowed halls of the senate is now an institution that produce charlatans and power-drunk, arrogant politicians and crooks.

    • I voted for him twice and I will never repeat the same mistake again. Trillanes is very arrogant not befitting a senator.

  29. Sukdulan ang galit ni Trillanes kina Erap at Binay. Hanggang ngayon di pa din maka-get over ang ungas na ito sa nawalang Php 350 million.

    Umayos ka nga, putschist-for-hire!

    Ahihihi

  30. This reporter probably has no beat to cover that’s why he is stooping this low. Halata naman na palabas ni BINAY ito para lang ipamukha kunwari na nilalait ni Sen. Trillanes eh ang mahihihrap na katulad niya. HINDI NA UUBRA ANG STYLE MO MR. BINAY! Kung ako sa iyo, mag isip ka nalang kung papaano mo maitatago ang iba mo pang kayamanan na nilustay sa bayan!

  31. Senator Trillanes, dahan dahan ka sa pananalita dahil marami kang matatamaan. Hindi lahat ng maiitim ay mahirap at asal mahirap. Sige kumandidato ka bilang presidente at tingnan natin ang iyong magagawa at kung iboboto ka pa nga mga mahihirap kagaya ko. Mas marami ang mahirap kaysa mayaman. Hintayin mo ang election para malaman mo kung karapat dapat ka bang mamuno sa ating bansa.

    • Teaching your fellow poor people to vote would do,
      Most of these mahihirap are not the ones who are educated enough to know who to vote, are too gullible when they read articles like this, are the ones who follows who bought their votes etc etc.

      Other solution would be, don’t allow mahihiraps to vote, or limit the voting from those who didn’t finish high school or for better those who didn’t finish college. I’m one of these mahihiraps but I’m keeping an open mind i n this, so I accepted all my faults for being stupid.

  32. So what does Trilannes believe in? He is ready to commit treason with another coup. He is anti-poor. He is dishonest. His bads far out weigh the good.

  33. I think those people have taken it the wrong way, but look at what he is actually meaning. Dont get sidetracked from the point, but lots of people here do easily get side tracked. Its no ones choice to be poor & i dont for one second think he was slating poor people.

  34. Yan ba ang ugaling pwedeng tumulong sa mahirap? BRUSKO,AROGANTE.
    Rebeldeng senador, doon ka
    mamuno sa South, kasama
    ng ASG at ibang BANDIDO.

  35. Para sa akin wlang masama sa pag gamit. He is just telling the two colors of the vice president I think for me it was just a mere metaphor.

  36. The looks like my driver. He shouldn’t be talking shit like that. How’s that for generalization :|

  37. trillanes is himself self-destructing…that in fact is his true color…pretentious..he should still be in jail…really

  38. i think ang point of veiw dito eh nag papanggap na makamasa ito si binay! but in other faces eh sobrang sobra ang yaman na ninakaw sa kaban ng bayan..

  39. It is Mr.13%VP Binay is who always talk about his color kahit saan angulo mo siya tignan e maitim siya yong ipin lang niya ang maputi.Malapi ng makalabuso si Mr.13%.

  40. Apple Marie Agolong on

    In his ambitious quest to run for a higher position , he failed to check his actions and gave way to his real attitude that is inconsistent with his supposed platform.. I take offense in his statement! Our women are among the most beautiful in the world as being evidenced by the various world titles and accomplishments, majority of the title holders are morena, majority of the Filipinos have that skin tone of VP Binay. As a Senator, para na ring sya pa ang nag malign sa mga kalahi niya na syang bomoto sa kanya para maging Senator sya.. Another form of betrayal! He had shown so many times his side of being a traitor, in all forms! Ano na naman kaya ang susunod.

  41. nestordaan@yahoo.com.ph on

    Asking this Trillanes for a debate is useless..Hamonin na lang ng Mano-mano para bas agin ang mukha.I am in my 70 s ,,I would be happy to volunteer..believe me people who talks so much are cowards..take it from me,,,,after those years in Tondo and Sampaloc..

  42. Umuusbong kay Trillanes ang sagad na paghahangad na maging presidente ng Pilipinas. Senatong Trillones should be an apt name for him. Bagay na bagay.

  43. Don’t be deceived with interpretations of what Sen Trillanes said. He is one of our leaders who possesed the guts to fight corruption. Listen to him and help him fight for us. Don’t be counter-productive. Don’t be an aid to corruption. THINK

  44. tong si Trillanes…tumaggap ng 200M DAP (nakaw na pera) before the Impeachment and 200M after the impeachement……at hindi pa kasali ang another 200M sa PDAF nya……kahit na alam na alam nyang innoceneteng tao si CJ Corona…..tuloy pa rin si Cayetano at Trillanes magpa aso kay noynoy…..hindi naman trabaho ng senator ang gusto ni Trillanes…. ang gusto nya magpayaman….dahil ASO sha ng oligarch……saan kumukuha ng KAPAL ng muka tong si Trillanes…..eh PLUNDER ang ginawa nila sa senado……alam nila na pagnanakaw ang DAP……kaya PATAGO nilang tinanggap at hindi na natin alam kung saan nya dinala ang pera ng pipilipino…..MAGNANAKAW KA ANTONIO TRILLANES…..

  45. Spoiled brats coming from rich families oftentimes consider the poor and down-trodden as lesser individuals.

    • Louis Esmeralda on

      Lumaki sobra ang ulo. Ginamit lang niya yong magdalo group for his favor para maging Senatong. Kawawa yong mga naging kasama niya sa Oakwood mutiny. Masyadong ambisyoso. utak pulbura!!!

  46. But the matters worse is why Binay is so concerned about the survey of helicopter, being done why is so affected if he is not guilty of ownership, now because of his sensitive reaction in only shows that his afraid that he will lost his property if his charges of corruption thru illegal means were proven.Hidden wealth will be proven once tax collection, ownership and title will dig deeper. Binay’s time are definitely grim and dim.

  47. Sa mga ordinaryong tao na kagaya ko, ang tinutukoy dito ay hindi literal na kulay ng balat ng isang tao; kundi ang kulay o anyo ni VP B. Mas isipin ninyo na ang mahihirap ay mananatiling mahirap kung ang mga nakapaligid sa atin ay walang pakundangan na nangungurakot sa kaban ng bayan. Gumising na po tayo, isipin nating mabuti ang ibobot natin bilang pinuno ng bayan. Maliban sa mga anomalyang kinsasankutan ng VP B; ang isang dahilan kung bakit hindi ako buto sa kanya na maging Presidente ng Pinas, ay for Christ sake sila na lang ba ang may karapatang maglingkod sa bayan. Sa ngayon ang mga Binay ang isa sa politically powerful; may mayor, may congresswoman, may senadora at VP B. Wow only in the Phil.

  48. dianne beamish on

    Taga makati ako. Kaklase ko si nancy sa UP. Natawa ako nung ung tagline nya ay una ng masa. When i was in UP Nancy binay was not poor or masa. Sàan nangaling tong mahirap etc. Btw, nung lahat ng batch invite d sa tagaytay resthouse nila bongga !! Afford nila ang karangyaan. Btw nancy was never my friend. Kasi silang mayayaman amg friend nya. Nanay ng bayan my ass!! Nakakatawa..

  49. Remulla !!! Itigil mo na pag-dakdak mo. Talo mo pa ang baboy sa pagpapakain mo sa Manila Times ng mga negatibong pag-tatangol sa mga Binay. Gawin mo na lang ang trabaho mo sa Cavite. Magkano ba kasi ang ibinayad sa iyo ni Binay at kahit na palpak na si Binay sa kanyang “alibis” ay iyo pa ring ipinagtatangol sa kasinungalingan. Matakot ka sana Remulla sa Diyos sa pagtatangol mo sa mga kasinungalingan ng mga Binays pero kung totoo man na walang kasalanan si Binay ay ipagpatuloy mo ang pagtatangol sa kanya pero pag totoo naman ang bintang sa kanya ay kasama (accomplice) ka sa impyerno na maging parusa sa iyo ng Diyos. Mga LEFTISTs, NPAs BAYAN, magsalita naman kayo tungkol sa mga Binays. Binayaran yata kayo ni Binay para tumahimik kayo.

  50. Nory Cabanilla on

    What Sen. Antonio Trillanes said does not apply to anyone else. It’s directed at VP Binay. The senator has the right to describe the life style of VP Binay, based on his observations and findings. There is nothing in his words any imputation to other people. Obviously, he is being taken out of context.
    I hope the public debate between Trillanes and Binay will shed more facts to determine if Binay is really a crook.

  51. Trillanes’ desperate attempt to earn political mileage through his charade at the expense of demolishing Binay backfired big time.

    In another media website, it was reported that “Ticked off by the fact that he earned the ire of the netizens through a youtube video clip of his statements describing Binay as “asal mahirap” and kulay mahirap,” Trillanes said that he was “set up” by Antonio Tiu.

    What? Amazing. The media report clearly showed that he was pissed off when he was initially refused entry. But he was allowed entry when Tiu came later. How could he had been set up if he was even refused entry at the start? I find him an exceptional being to believe his own lies. This guy is simply incredible. Why doesn’t he ask Cayetano and Pimentel why they were not able to come? I’m beginning to suspect that his own colleagues were part of the set up.
