Robredo’s Visit To Landslide Victims In Bunguet Made To Look Like A “Photo Op”

VP Leni Robredo visited Itogon, Benguet to supposedly condole with the victims of the landslide, however, with a host of reporters and cameramen with her, it obviously looked like a “photo opportunity” for publicity purposes.

The Tireless VP

Many of the President’s supporters sees Leni Robredo as a tireless vice president. She never gets tired of criticising the administration’s every move. She really believe that one her duties as a VP is to oppose every move of the president. Because of her views, the palace even said that the vice president “is out of touch with reality.”

In the wake of typhoon Ompong’s devastation, President Duterte was busy visiting the victims of landslides and the typhoon. He can be seen talking to people at evacuation centers and seeing firsthand the damage that the disaster has done.

While the chief executive was busy with the relief efforts, where is VP Robredo you may ask? Well, she is with her fellow liberal partymates comfortably sitting and commemorating the Martial Law anniversary.

Publicity Visit
A few weeks after the landslide happened in Itogon, Benguet, the vice president decided to visit. Long after the relief efforts were given, and donations were awarded to the victims. VP Leni Robredo thought it wise to talk with the people of Itogon.

What really irritated those people who knew better is that she came with an army of reporters and cameramen. No relief goods, no donations, just photo opportunity for her to look good in the eyes of the people. Or so she thinks.

Angry Reactions From Netizens

Here are some of the angry comments given by our sensible netizens.

Nallup Nahesa Japer: People needs a leader who will be there immediately not after the incident happens. A leader who Filipinos can feel that they are loved and cared for. What is the effort of that woman being there? Just for pictorials? Maybe it was too scary for her that time to be there that might lead her to get an accident. Our beloved President came when that time happened, risking his own life. That is the essence of a true leader. Hope you got that Ms. Smartmatic.

Merline Satur Nabaysan: Pakitang tao lang siya, sa Naga na may landslide, ang una ng bumisita doon ay ang Pangulo natin samantalang parally-rally lang siya, magkakasama silang lahat na dilawan. Hindi ako naniniwala sa kanya tapos panay siraan ang ginagawa.
