MANILA, Philippines—It was probably the toughest question that caught Transportation Secretary Mar Roxas II speechless during his confirmation hearing at the Commission on Appointments on Wednesday.

“I have one very significant question to ask and I’d like to remind the appointee that he’s under oath,” said Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson.

“Here’s my question, totoo po bang nagdadalantao si Korina? (is it true that Korina is pregnant?),” Lacson asked, referring to Roxas’ wife and popular TV personality, Korina Sanchez.

Those in the room burst into laughter.  It took a few seconds before Roxas could react to Lacson’s story.

And when he was about to respond,  Lacson said, “Never mind, Sir. Never mind.”

It was the only question raised before Roxas’ appointment was unanimously approved by the Commission’s committee on transportation and communication.

Roxas and Sanchez married in a grandiose wedding ceremony at the Santo Domingo Church in Quezon City on October 27, 2009.

    Joke lang ! This is the common rejoinder Filipinos for hard truth questions.

    It seems a simple question, a joke but filled with poison acid. There are those who question the marriage or the sexuality – and the absence of a progeny somehow entails non consummation of marriage or failure to cohabit, thus the question becomes a barb – hence, the subject was unable to answer or react accordingly.  And Senator Lacson, cutting off the intended reply is short of saying, we therefore conclude whatever we have in our mind… so never mind.. guilty!
