As political corruption and tyranny rapidly becomes widespread and normalized in cities and states throughout the US, Filipino Presidential candidate and retired boxer Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao has a few words for the political crooks in his neck of the woods:

“I will build an ‘MP,’ or mega prison, since there are a lot of corrupt officials and they might not all fit inside an ordinary jail,” Pacquiao said earlier today during his visit with Parañanque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez.

If Floyd Mayweather would like to follow suit, he’d be hard pressed to find land on American soil big enough to house countless politicians, teacher’s unions, Big Tech activists, corporate press, and just about every compromised decision-maker frolicking in waves of pay-off bucks from Big Pharma.

Pacquiao, who met with Mayor Olivarez today to “discuss the importance of local governments,” added that he would establish “special courts” that would specialize in handling graft cases, desiring swift proceedings on each. “They should be sentenced within three to six months,” he said. 

The Philippines Senator is running for President on an anti-corruption campaign, blaming the country’s mass poverty and stunted economic growth on corrupt officials.

Back in June, before Pacquiao officially announced his Presidential bid, he threatened current President Rodrigo Duterte with a political corruption tell-all, and Duterte called his bluff.

“I’m not saying there is no corruption, so expose it,” Duterte said. “If you don’t do that, I will expose you daily as a liar … I know you from way back.” 

“I am accepting the challenge of President Rodrigo Duterte,” Pacquiao responded. “Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help you and provide information for the campaign against corruption.”
