Is fumbling Madam President suitable to take over KFC President?

In this CNA interview, PAP MP Halimah has to repeatedly own self assure own self of the responsibilities of an elected president.

Typical of PAP members, she seizes the opportunity to repeatedly engage in self praise, eg having taken care of her constituency, the importance of her roles as Speaker and MP, etc.

Halimah fumbles throughout the 1-minute plus interview and uses ‘er’ 5 times and ‘la’ once.  Halimah is clearly also a ‘thinker’.

Can’t imagine what will happen if she becomes president and interviewed by foreign media when questions are not scripted.

Another highly-paid PAP joker.

    These PAP lap-dogs are highly paid and get more power than ordinary citizens. That’s why they can develop a very thick skin and throw out their self-respect and dignity in order to do their master’s bidding. Frankly if I am one of these shameless people, I might also be a compliant fool just to enrich and empower my family and myself. I’m also only human, what……What to do? Money talks!

  • Backoff Please...:

    We don’t want ‘nasi lemak’ as ‘KFC’ has ‘screwed’ Singaporeans big time!

    We will settle for ‘bandung’ and hope for the best!

    No venture, no gain!

  • Wayang - PAP decided -No Think:

    Tho EP is a non-political position, Pay-n-Pay staged behind the scenes -
    * Tackling Tan Cheng Bok from participation
    * Deciding for her to be a candidate.
    -
    We should send a signal at the ballot box that the AristoCATS should have known better !!!

    Halimah should read Calvin Cheng’s FB post. This is the first time I find him talking sense and agree fully with him.

    Maybe TRE should post Calvin’s comments here for every TRE readers to read it. Really very meaningful.

    The current President did not even make a squeak for a long time. Perhaps keeping his voice for coming NDP.

    I don’t know if Madam President will be the same after shifted into the Istana. If so, “er” and “la” is not a problem.

  • MarBowling:

    Don’t be surprised once she is Erected as the President she will ONLY give her reply and answer to questions from the foreign press in MALAY! Those foreign reporters cannot fault her on that! Mai Hum has already said very clearly that the GE in Sep 2017 is SOLELY AND SPECIALLY RESERVED FOR A MALAY! Given her status as a Malay, she should be able to speak her mother-tongue which is our National Language very fluently w/o any “eh” or “la”.

    Foreign reporters have to solve their own problems if they catch no balls.

  • Public speaker:

    You have to be clear about your thoughts and be on your toes
    to answer off the cuff questions. Halimah isn’t. You also
    need preparation viz run thru possible answers to possible
    questions, before you face the crowd. Halimah didn’t prepare.

    Few are like Lim Thean, Chee Soon Juan and LKY and can handle
    public speaking with ease and flair. You need personality,
    confidence, the ability to project yourself. The last takes
    training and practice. Unlike the PM, Halimah does not appear
    to have had coaching. As for personality…. you be the judge.

  • Lucsai-Lee Wrong:

    Er… couldn’t have agreed more with Philip. If she’s so nervous even talking to our lowly world-ranked press, how is she going to handle the foreign journalists?

    It’s obvious er…. she belongs to the type of people who are more comfortable with the ordinary folks but not when er…. on a much bigger stage la.

    She should not risk living her life in misery for the next 6 years. She’s earning er…. enough to live comfortably. More money won’t guarantee more happiness.

    Halimah should be selfish and er….. naughty for once la to defy her boss’s wishes. Not only would she remain happy by being who she is but er…. she’d also make many singaporeans happy not seeing another PAP puppet President.

    ( I beat her using 6 ‘er’ and 2 ‘la’!)

  • Amos humiliate L*L and PAP:

    35% President Tony Tan was a PAP lapdog. Why would PAP replace him with somebody different? EP is all for show. Just like Singapore Constitution, the Courts, Parliament, democracy, general elections, etc. Singapore is an autocracy run by a bunch of greedy, arrogant, self-serving thugs who wear white to hide the dirt but you can still smell it.

    Halimah the Pukeima Yacob is either a liar or have been brain dead for all this while or she is the Biggest DRAMA QUEEN.Every man,woman and child in Singapore knew PAP is rooting her to be the next President for a while she comes up and DRAMA that she is only aware of it now and is thinking about it.
    SINGAPOREANS DO YOU TRUST SUCH A BULLSHIT PRESIDENT TO TAKE CARE OF OUR RESERVES.Such a liar will only lie about the reserves.PAP has never been transparent about our reserves. EVen president Ong TC did not get any answers from our government.I can bet my last dollar that this Pukeima will only be a PUPPET PRESIDENT At best.

    Do not take up the position of President Halimah, the powers above had warned LHL by sending a fainting spell to the Clown prince when he was addressing(bullshiting) the crowds on the subject of elected presidency. Imagine what that powers will do to you? Think of your husband and your chubby kid what will they do without you around?

    First of all,does she qualify as “MALAY” in the pure sense?

    Even IF they make her qualified ,she will just be another WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY.
    We might as well SAVE RESOURCES on voting?

    She will be another LAME DUCK if ever “erected”.

    Her most meaningful contribution to sgs is still being an Union Leader .

    The rest of her roles have just been wastrel$.

    70% sinkies. See how our precious nation has truly fallen. From the world esteemed surgeon President Sheares to a mee goreng goreng Machik President who couldn’t speak for ikan billis even if her life depended on it. From a truly respected (whether deserving or not debatable, but nevertheless) global giant statesman Prime/Mentor Minister LKY, to a c.o.r.r.r.u.p.t. diva self serving jury, judge and executioner fumbling clown Pinky (closet queen) lame PeeMan presiding over a nation of FTrash and dwindling natives.

    This is what 50 years of blood sweat and tears the past and current post baby boomers have sacrificed to witness. All you 70% (rigged % obviously) should be hanged for plummeting this beloved nation into such an irreversible tragedy and still falling. Truly the Wrath Of God must be forthcoming soon.

    Truly DESPICABLE !!!

  • Kemble:

    Nathan makes a really good point re a tudong-clad prez doesn’t
    really represent what spore and sporeans are all about.

    Halimah seems a nice woman, and humble (she lives in an HDB flat).
    She doesn’t really have the characteristics of a leader though.
    In fact, she was a kind of nobody until she became speaker of
    the house. But then today’s prez behaves like a nobody.

    That she might have some say on handling of Billions of $s boggles
    the mind. But then, under new rules, the prez is a total figurehead
    again. Parl, advisory committees can all over-rule her decisions.

    More pertinently, is she Malay??? After all, she has an Indian dad.
    And kids are categorised under their father’s race. What a Malay is
    seems to be open to a lot of debate. Hopefully, she speaks good,
    fluent english. These days, too many people don’t.

  • PAP to ban TV cameras:

    Salary too high to resist:
    If she is going to be the face of Singapore, representing Singapore, and will be meeting top foreign dignitaries, and show no class? Singapore malu lah.

    Will the PAP ban TV cameras when she meets foreign visitors to save Singapore the embarrassment of her being televised speaking Singlish to those foreign dignitaries?

    Or will they doctor and remove or make inaudible those embarrassing parts like they have always been doing?

    Alas, they will not be able to doctor or distort any unflattering comments or reporting by foreign correspondents (or maybe even a sarcastic incredulous retort by the foreign dignitary), like they did to Dr. Chee’s speeches. Oh sure, they will ban those comments on the mainstream media.

    And Singaporeans will none the wiser and will continue to sing praises of the PAP leaders and boast we have the most impressive President in the world!

  • Nizhemoshou:

    U know school children also like that.. They learnt the answers by heart. The bright ones in class will have no problem in remembering their lines but not the duller ones who tend to falter n stammer with lots of “eh” n pauses. Sama sama for Harimau. She belongs to the latter category.

    There are plenty of examples of pap MPs/Ministers with inability to handle unscripted questions. To name some:-

    - TPL’s “I dont know what to say” ;

    - WKS on finding Mas Selamat. “If he is not in Spore,he mus be outside
    Spore” ;

    - GCT’s “He is not my brother” ;

    - the pap MP [forget his name]who hum n haw irritatingly with “you
    know” at the end of practically every sentence in his answers in a
    meeting with the residents who were unhappy with the proposed
    columbarium in the estate a few yrs ago.

    Yet pappies shamelessly touted themselves as tok kong n self entitled themselves to out of this world salaries.

    You make a good point there about the tudung.

    Investors, tourists etc will think we are an extremist country or an intolerant one. I had come across Western tourists who avoided coming to Spore as they saw it as a de facto police state.

  • Singaporeans Don't Want You!:

    Why you ‘die die’ want to be President?

    Worse, if you end up not elected by the People, how?

    Singaporeans already so unhappy about the coming PE; many know the real intent to have it reserved for Malays.

    Even the Malays are not happy and many have openly stated they will not vote for you!

    Why you want to make yourself a ‘scapegoat’?
