Teddy Locsin shouldn’t have called “vice president” Leni Robredo “BOBA”

To be fair, one would expect a bit more of Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teddy Locsin. He is, after all, a seasoned public servant and an articulate newspaper columnist. For a man of his skills and experience, one would think he’d find far more eloquent and more uppity ways to point out just how stupid Leni Robredo is.

Locsin could have, instead, described Robredo as a daft ineffectual government executive who is occupying expensive taxpayer-funded space and taking oxygen from the atmosphere without giving back proportionate useful value to people who could’ve put that important gas to more productive use.

If I were Robredo, I wouldn’t attract too much attention to myself considering her claim to the Office of the Vice President remains debatable to this day. She is but a mere beneficiary of the influence wielded by her party over the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) back in 2016 after it failed to comply with an important election guideline that would have resulted in her disqualification from the elections. More importantly her “win” in that election currently remains in dispute owing to allegations of electoral fraud.

Leni Robredo blew what could have been a great working relationship with President Duterte.

The most important point of all is that Robredo had long ago epically blown her bid to be a respected member of the Cabinet of President Rodrigo Duterte. This is thanks to her inability to recognise that she is “vice president” of all Filipinos and not just of the Yellowtards. Big lesson there, but unfortunately one Robredo failed to take heed of.
