Sa kaniyang pagbira kay Vice President Leni Robredo, nag-iwan ng mahiwgang katanungan si Pangulong Rodrigo Roa Duterte laban sa bise nito.
“There was no need for you to make a — make a very masamang biro na, “where were you?” Kung sabihin ko tuloy sa iyo, what time did you go home? Ikaw noong gabi, anong oras ka umuwi? Isang bahay ka lang ba? Dalawang bahay ka? Tatanong lang ako kasi congressman ka. At kaninong bahay ka natagalan? Iyan ang sabihin ko sa iyo,” banat ng Pangulo.
Kagabi ay pinatutsadahan ni Pangulong Duterte si Robredo dahil sa ginawa umano nitong credit-grabbing sa kasagsagan ng mga bagyong Ulysses at Rolly.
Narito ang reaksyon ng ilang personalidad sa naging banat ni Pangulong Duterte kay Robredo.
“That, my friends, was a warning shot. “Kanino ka umuuwi”—and the very hasty backpedal made in the same night (“OMG, I never said where the President is, I just inferred stuff like there should be urgency!”) means he hit a raw nerve and let her know he KNOWS. Whatever it is, he knows. And what he knows is enough to crumble the entire persona built carefully over the years.
In time, when push comes to shove, “pseudo-defenders” will be so conflicted as to how to excuse some certain behaviors that may be unacceptable in our society.
PS: Haha the duplicity of wala daw sinabi na nasaan ang Pangulo, but she didn’t stop her minions nor correct them when she knew he had a summit he had to attend to. She egged them on with thinly veiled inference that he wasn’t doing his job. They’re really assuming our IQ level’s the same as theirs. Simbako. Popcorn?” sabi ng Manila Bulletin Lifestyle Writer Krizette Chu.
“Di nga, gusto ko malaman saan nagpupunta si Leni pag gabi? #NasaanKaKagabiLeni” banat naman ng radio host na si Mark Lopez.
