DFA Locsin calls Robredo 'Boba' & asks someone to give her a 'Brain'

Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo was at the end of a tounge lashing from one of President Duterte’s most outspoken cabinet member – Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr.

The DFA Sec. blasted the Vice President for the statement she made in her weekly radio show “BISErbisyong Leni,”and called her ‘boba’ (stupid)  regarding the cancellation of diplomatic passports of former foreign affairs secretaries.

Robredo aired her dismay and views regarding the cancellation of the diplomatic passports of former foreign affairs secretary Albert Del Rosario, who was barred from entering Hong Kong last June 19.

“Ang reaksyon ng bansa natin imbes na ipagtanggol iyong mamamayan ng Pilipinas, parang sinisi pa at kinancel (Our country’s reaction is to throw blame and cancel [the diplomatic passport]),” Robredo said.

Locsin in clarifying the issue, said all courtesy diplomatic passports were canceled so as not to “single out Del Rosario.”

“Hey boba, that is precisely why I have ordered the cancellation of all courtesy diplomatic passports because I refuse to single out Del Rosario,” Locsin said on Twitter.

“Will someone please do her the kindness to give her a brain? Here I am trying to do what’s right, which is to restrict diplomatic passports to real existing working diplomats so as not to devalue them abroad—and not pass them out as favors to retirees and friends,” he added.

Locsin in his succeeding comments in Twitter said he does not mean to be disrespectful.
“I don’t mean to be disrespectful Ma’am, you are just a missing heartbeat away from the Presidency. I respect you for that accident of fortune. But there are things that require a measure of study & thought. Please ask me next time. At your service, Ma’am,” Locsin said in a later tweet.
