Robredo vows to fight back against PRRD's "vulgar remarks" against her


The Vice President has now made it public that she would continue to stand up to President Rodrigo Duterte if he would again speak ill towards her.

Leni Robredo made the remark when asked in an interview to explain why she called the President a misogynist after the latter asked in a nationally televised briefing what time she went home at night and where she would sleep after a long tiring day.

“Kapag binastos ako, lalaban ako. Kapag binastos mo ako lalaban ako kasi kailangan kong maging halimbawa, eh. Kailangan ko maging halimbawa sa ibang mga kababaihan na nababastos din,” Robredo said.

“Kung sa pambabastos hahayaan ko iyon, ano iyong mensaheng binibigay ko? Na okay lang iyon? Na okay lang iyon dahil lalaki kayo? Na okay lang iyon dahil Pangulo kayo? Hindi dapat ganoon,” she added.

The Vice President said such action of the President sets a bad example and should not be allowed to pass unchecked.

“Hindi magandang halimbawa kahit iyon iyong natural mo. Kahit iyon iyong natural mo, hindi iyon katanggap-tanggap kasi maraming tao iyong nag-a-appreciate sa iyo, nag-a-idolize sa iyo. Tinuturuan mo ng mga bagay na una, kabastusan,” Robredo said.

“Tinuturuan mo ng mga bagay na hindi maganda. Eh makikita natin ito, Deo, dahil iyon siya, iyong mga supporters na kumakampi sa kaniya ganiyan din. Iyong mga posts sa social media talagang lahat kabastusan,” she added.

Robredo said she welcomes criticisms because such is a part of being a politician, but reminded the President that such criticisms should be rooted on facts, not low blows.

“Hindi masama na mag-criticize. Tingin ko, bahagi iyan ng demokrasya. Hindi masama na punahin mo iyong public officials kasi kailangan siya maging accountable. Pero kung iyong pagpupuna mo dinadaan mo sa una, kabastusan; pangalawa, kasinungalingan, mali iyon,” Robredo said.
