Talk about a trusty sidekick
ICYMI, Senator Bong Go brushed shoulders with fellow lawmakers yesterday after he refused to be interpellated (or questioned) on the privilege speech he made calling out government agencies for not providing early sickness benefits for frontliners.
‘I am not your student and you are not my proctor,’ the first-term senator said to Senate Minority Leader and longtime lawmaker Franklin Drilon, who requested Go to take in questions to bring a ‘new normal‘ to the Senate’s online meetings.
Despite the mess, Bong Go’s statements aren’t the only eyebrow-raising occurrence of the meeting, as people noticed a particularly eye-catching image in the background.

Yep, your eyes don’t deceive you. The drawing appears to be a caricature of the Senator with his good pal, President Rodrigo Duterte, as Batman and Robin.
The ‘crime-fighting‘ duo is seen holding up their fist in Duterte’s signature pose while rocking the Caped Crusader and his sidekick’s signature outfits.
Aside from the caricature, there looks to be even more Duterte memorabilia scattered around the Senator’s background – from an all-white sculpture (to paint in?), a miniature (super realistic) figurine, to yet another caricature of just the commander-in-chief.
My biggest takeaway from this is that Bong Go has a caricature of himself and Duts as Batman and Robin in the background. https://t.co/mPzkr3Usa2
