"Wine sucks" gaffe dismissed by Malacanang as just a "learning experience"

According to Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda, the fallout resulting from a crass Tweet of a member of President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's entourage as he was graciously hosted by the government of Vietnam is just a "learning experience". In the offending Tweet, Assistant Secretary Carmen "Mai" Mislang made a personal observation of how the wine served to them by their hosts "sucks". Apparently, this astounding display of lack of breeding did not seem to be something that Malacanang officials found disturbing enough to crack down on as severely as many people would have wanted them to...
Lacierda said what Mislang did is "not the most important thing right now" and dismissed it as a "learning experience."

Says a lot indeed about the character of a government that in principle reflects the society that put it in power.
