Robredo slams Mocha for exploiting Taal unrest to spread lies

The Vice President has a mouthful as a against this President Rodrigo Roa Duterte appointee.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration Deputy Executive Director Mocha Uson was slammed by Vice President Leni Robredo for spreading fake news/wrong information amid the Taal unrest.

Uson who is also a pro-Duterte blogger, posted a screenshot of a Facebook user commenting that the vice president only donated five pieces of pandesal and a bottle of water to the evacuees.

Uson, claimed that Robredo prioritized having photo ops rather than helping victims of the volcanic eruption.

"Hindi din kasi ito ang unang pagkakataong inuna ni Leni ang pagpapa photo ops kaysa pagtulong sa mga biktima ng trahedya," Uson said on Facebook.
(This is not the first time that Leni opted to have photo ops instead of helping victims of a tragedy.)
Robredo, on the other hand, called Uson a purveyor of fake news despite being a paid salary of government from tax payers money.

"While our people are suffering from an unfortunate tragedy, this bearer of fake news continues to receive salary out of taxpayers' money. Let's all help put a stop to the proliferation of lies," Robredo posted on her personal Facebook account.

In another Facebook post by the Vice President , she clarified the items she donated to the Taal evacuees, and it consisted of  rice, instant noodles and canned goods.
Robredo also provided dust masks and drinking water to the evacuees.
"Maging mapanuri sa mga nakikita at nababasa sa social media—lalo na mula sa mga nananamantala sa mga trahedya upang magpakalat ng fake news," Robredo said.

(Be wary on what is being seen and read on social media—especially those who exploit tragedies to spread fake news.)
