Kasing tigas ng bato ang ulo ni Leni!

Leni is so dense. Sobrang kapal ang kokote niya. Hirap makaka-unawa. Even simple lessons can’t find their way into her brain.

This became apparent again today (Thursday, December 17, 2020) in a speech she delivered before an organization in the national capital. The headline of the CNN story says Leni spoke about trust and good communications as key elements for effective leadership.

Leni can’t even comprehend that the words coming out of the prepared speech was intended for her than anybody else. Hindi niya naintindihan na para sa kanyang kaalaman dapat ang mga binigkas niya tungkol sa tiwala.

She speaks of “trust” as a key to good leadership.

That’s very correct. Every student of leadership knows that. It’s she who doesn’t have an inkling about the importance of trust to leadership, which is the reason why people look at her with suspicion. There’s no trust. After four years and a half in office, Leni hasn’t improved a centimeter in terms of gaining the people’s trust. Majority of Filipinos reject her.

It’s time somebody in her camp told her she should learn the very lessons contained in her speech. With less than two years before the term of VP expires, she should wake up to reality and accept the fact that trust is an elusive commodity for her.
