The supporters of current “vice president” Leni Robredo are coming to her rescue after Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin called her stupid. They are now trying to make her look like a “victim”. She may not have used derogatory terms but her actions were also disrespectful to Locsin.
In an ideal world, DFA Sec Teddy Boy Locsin shouldn’t have called her “boba” or stupid. But also in an ideal world, Leni shouldn’t be berating another member of the executive branch via the media. She should be discussing her views during a meeting or in private.
If there is one thing the yellows are good at, for their part, it’s playing the victim card. It doesn’t matter to them how many times they called Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte names and tried to seek foreign intervention to help oust him. The minute one of their own is called out for being stupid, they cry foul.
The recent exchange of unpleasantness between two top-level members of the executive branch of government highlights how problematic the Cory constitution is for Filipinos. The fact that a VP from the Opposition was voted in promotes dysfunctional behaviour. All Leni does is criticise the government all of which is lapped up by her cheering squad as best exemplified by this gem from “social media influencer” Noemi Dado…
The fate of 22 fishermen involved in the Recto Bank incident is more important than the tirades of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr., Vice President Leni Robredo […] this is class
No. The fate of over 100 million Filipinos is more important than Leni’s political career. Trouble is, Robredo doesn’t look out for the majority. She is “vice president” of the Yellows first before all the rest. She only latches on to trending issues or controversies and use these as fodder against Duterte before the cameras hoping to rile up the public against him. It’s high time the Opposition come up with a better strategy than that stupid approach.
In life, things are not always what they seem.
