Prominent lawyer and social media personality, Atty. Bruce Rivera , once again took to social media and shared a striking opinion over Vice President Leni Robredo's statement in a press briefing, that she is willing to be the leader of the opposition.

That statement of VP Robredo did not sit well with Atty. Rivera who expressed his indignation against the Vice President, that's why on his recent Facebook post, Rivera slammed Robredo and reminded the latter that since she is the Vice President of the Liberal Party, that certainly makes her the leader of the opposition.



The lawyer then asked if a press conference is really needed for that very distinct announcement or maybe she was just encouraging their former members to shift back at them.

"Wait, ano daw? Leni is willing to be the leader of the opposition. Hindi ba ang LP ang oposisyon at dahil siya ang VP ng partido, siya ang leader ng oposisyon. Kailangan pa ba ng press conference para diyan. Or baka nanghihikayat ka namang maglipat-bakod ang dati ninyong miyembro?", Rivera exclaimed.

Atty. Bruce also requested VP Robredo to say something meaningful and just defend her party instead so she can be significant to their group. Likewise, the prominent lawyer, advised the VP to likely defend the corruptions made during the Noynoy Aquino's administration for her to be useful, than to discuss about binding the opposition whatsoever.

"Please, ma'am. Say something meaningful. Defend your party na lang para may silbi ka. Yung mga nangyaring korapsyon sa panahon ni PNoy, bakit ayaw mo idepensa? Kesa naman dialogue ka to unify the opposition and you cannot even defend your party." Atty. Bruce wrote.

Further, Rivera recounted the reason why Robredo was the one chosen by the Liberal Party to run for VP then.

"Ikaw lang ang pinatakbo kasi nung panahon nung eleksyon at ayaw ni Grace magbise, ikaw lang ang medyo okey pa ang reputasyon. At nagbubus ka papuntang Bicol kaya madami ang nadenggoy sa yo.", the lawyer ended.

"ANO NA NAMAN ITO?

Wait, ano daw? Leni is willing to be the leader of the opposition. Hindi ba ang LP ang oposisyon at dahil siya ang VP ng partido, siya ang leader ng oposisyon. Kailangan pa ba ng press conference para diyan. Or baka nanghihikayat ka namang maglipat-bakod ang dati ninyong miyembro? Please, maam. Say something meaningful.

Kesa naman dialogue ka to unify the opposition and you cannot even defend your party.

Ayan tayo eh. Sige nga, kung sasabihin nina Bam at ibang LP na ikaw ang leader nila, maniniwala na ako sa yo. Kaso, kahit sa LP hindi ka din leader nila. Ikaw lang ang pinatakbo kasi nung panahon nung eleksyon at ayaw ni Grace magbise, ikaw lang ang medyo okey pa ang reputasyon. At nagbubus ka papuntang Bicol kaya madami ang nadenggoy sa yo."
