You disrespected the Filipino people by walking out of the impeachment court. You made a mockery of The Supreme Court by shedding crocodile tears after churning out motherhood statements all three hours you hugged the limelight to yourself.
You were there as a witness to be cross-examined that you might have shed light to the "lantern of lies" you so vehemently deny, and other vengeful acts against you by the Aquino administration, as you so tearfully lament. But you pulled a DJ Mo Twister act and delivered a monologue all three long hours. When you were done with your one-man show, after signing a waiver allowing your bank accounts to be opened that holds true only if half of the country signs a waiver too, you, the Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines "wished to be excused," closed your script, turned your back, and walked out.
Thank God for Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile's quick wit, you were locked in before you could pull a Houdini. Half an hour later, your relative and one of your defense lawyers talked to the press to announce you have a "slight" medical problem caused by the dropping of your blood sugar, and other medical possibilities, which once again proves that in this country, lawyers hold two degrees: law and medicine.
After some grave threats from JPE who got so angry enough to put the Hulk to shame, Corona appeared in a wheelchair before the court. What a foolery!
If he was feeling faint to continue, how hard was it to speak so? If the way he just walked out of the room, so full of himself, appeared like he was going to faint, as his counsel Cuevas claimed half an hour later, then I am Lady Gaga.
JPE's shining moment was when he castigated Cuevas for Corona's misbehavior in the presence of the Chief Justice himself, but Enrile directed all his wrath to Cuevas as if Corona was not there in his wheelchair listening. Enrile was like a grade school principal reprimanding a parent (Cuevas) for raising a brat (Corona.)
Corona ought to have been cited for contempt, or may be not if he pleads temporary loss of sanity. But fainting spells? Ano ka, tiyahin ni Scarlet O'Hara?
