PULONGS LIST | Robredo and Jollibee are on the list? What do they have in common?

On Friday, former Vice Mayor of Davao City Paolo Duterte posted a list of alleged personalities to whom he said are people who plan to ouster his father President Rodrigo Duterte. 

Surprisingly, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was on the list but several company, dead bishop, mutant groups, media, Vice President Leni Robredo and even Philippine's top fast food chain, Jollibee is on the list. 

As of writing, the excel screenshot of the said list of personalities that was posted in the Facebook page of Paolo Duterte was deleted but shared in social media since Friday. 

Robredo as villain

Vice President Leni Robredo was mentioned in the lust and was said to be the "leader of the united opposition." Robredo said she doesn't know most of the people on the list except Jollibee. 

"Napaka-iresponsible na mag-post ng isang bagay na, una, wala namang basehan. Pangalawa, hindi ko alam kung alam niya kung saan iyon nanggaling, kasi obviously yong gumawa noon, hindi man lang nag-aksaya ng panahon para mag-research," Robredo said on Sunday, December 9.

(It's so irresponsible to post something that, first, has no basis. Second, I don't know if he knows where it came from because obviously, the one behind this did not even bother to do research.)

Robredo said she doesn't even know most of the people on the list, personalities who she's supposedly plotting Duterte's ouster with.

Tinitingnan ko iyong mga kasama kong pangalan doon, parang karamihan doon hindi ko kilala. Ang kilala ko lang doon si Jollibee," the Vice President quipped. (I was looking at the names on the list, and I don't know most of them. The only one I know is Jollibee.)

Media ass on fire

Not surprisingly, aside from Catholic bishops including Bishop Julio Xavier Labayen, who died weeks before the 2016 elections; and Duterte supporter Carmen Pedrosa is on the list. Media personalities such as Rappler's chief executive officer Maria Ressa is on the list. 

Journalist Ed Lingao, in a Facebook post, said: "Around a day later, probably realizing how stupid the list was (or is that giving him too much credit?), he took the list down. No explanation, no clarification, no correction."

Malacañang remarks on presidential son expose

After the list of Paolo Duterte of personalities involved in the ouster plot of his father, Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said that while Malacañang was "not privy to the list issued by the former vice mayor," the latter "may have some reasons for issuing such a list we do not know."

Panelo said that President Duterte himself "always respects freedom of expression."
