Salvador Panelo said ( about Bong Go ) : “May lumabas ng picture na ‘yung kanyang mask nakasabit sa kanyang tenga ibig sabihin tinanggal. Si Senador Bong Go wala rin (mask). Tapos karamihan meron pati ‘yung sumalubong, Ngayon ang criticism eh bakit ka nagtanggal ng face mask? Kala ko ba meron tayong mga safety protocols at ‘di pwede mag-violate bakit di mo ginawa? ‘Yan ang kritisismo. Tinatanong pa nga kung ‘yan ay intentional or hindi,” “Sasagutin natin knowing this President kung bakit niya tinanggal. Pag naka-mask ‘di kayo makikilala. Bakit tinanggal ni Presidente? Sinadya nya ‘yun kasi kung ‘di po nagtanggal ng maskara ‘yun di naman…si Presidente naman hindi naman six-footer na kitang-kita mo kahit naka maskara, alam mo na sya ‘yun. Ang height niya eh ordinaryo lang naman kapantay ng mga tao dun at pag dumarating ‘di mo talaga ma-recognize. So he had to remove it para makita nila ng mga tao na andun ang kanilang Presidente, ang kanilang iniidolo sa panahon ng krisis. Naku napakalaking bagay na makita nila,” External link
