Robredo: the people know the truth (oh yeah, but in a different perspective)

The woman who tried to show the nation that she was the one calling the shots in the search and rescue efforts of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police and Philippine Coast Guard insisted that she wasn’t stealing the job from the real Commander-in-Chief, President Rodrigo Duterte.

And Leni Robredo said she didn’t need to respond to the pointed remarks thrown at her by the President, asserting that “the Filipino people know the truth.” She downplayed her activities as just being an attempt to give hope to the people and providing those stranded on their rooftops with on-time information about the disaster, forgetting that her target audience didn’t even have access to social media during those moments.

Leni Robredo flooded all media outlets with endless photographs and videos about her “hard work” in helping typhoon victims. Yes, nakakapagod din ang pagposing para sa camera!

It hasn’t registered in the mind of Robredo, whose sanity is now being questioned by quite a few people online, that majority of Filipinos are aghast at what she has been doing. She has earned more enmity than ever before based on the outpouring of anger towards her during the last few days.

Opo, Leni. Alam ng taong bayan ang katotohanan. Pero it’s the opposite of what is in your mind. Kung akala mo na namamalakpakan ang mga tao, you are dead wrong. Filipinos are in an uproar because of your detestable deeds during the disasters. While the government was working 24/7 on helping people trapped in their homes, you were busy trying to score pogi points on mainstream and social media. Put**g in*! In your desire to draw attention to yourself, you were also acting like a comedy actress.
