Hindi n'ya kaya! Robredo, umatras kay Inday Sara Duterte

By Raymund Antonio
The Vice President Leni Robredo backed out of the word war with Davao City Mayor and presidential daughter Sara Duterte, who once against chided her for her “fake courage.”

Duterte blasted Leni for starting the word war.

Robredo chose not to engage in a verbal tussle with Duterte, but she had to say this given her latest tirade: “Ayaw kong pumasok sa isang usapan na, una, dala ng init ng ulo, pangalawa, may insultuhan, pangatlo, parang masama iyong pananalita.”

The country’s second highest official was asked in Hong Kong about Duterte’s statement that she was retreating behind a “Robredo camp” to answer for her as they debate on honesty and integrity in public service.

The word war between Duterte and Robredo have heated up in the past days as the two women have been arguing over the honesty issue during elections.

Duterte called Robredo a “fake VP” on allegations that there was massive fraud during the 2016 elections in response to her comment that lying is an “insult to the electorate.”

“Her honesty has been questioned since day one of her term as Vice President. She is not called fake VP for no reason,” the mayor said.

“And if she (Robredo) insists in saying that you have to be honest to run for public office, then she must say goodbye to her dreams of becoming President,” Duterte stated.

Responding to this, Vice presidential spokesperson Barry Gutierrez told the president’s daughter to “read real news” after she fell for “fake news” just to attack Robredo.

On Sunday, Robredo declined to be drawn into a verbal exchange with Duterte over her latest attack, saying she would “not get nothing” from it.

“Iyong sa akin lang, kung may mga isyu, sagutin. Pero hindi nakakatulong na nagbabatuhan ng insulto,” she told reporters in Hong Kong after attending Otso Diretso’s campaign rally.

“Ayaw kong parang nagre-react ako dahil gusto kong depensahan iyong sarili ko, pero nalilihis sa dapat pag-usapan iyong patutunguhan,” she said.

The Vice President also said she would rather not engage with Duterte because the 2022 presidential election is still too far.

“Ito, three years away pa—may isa pang eleksyon na pagdadaanan bago ng 2022. Kaya para sa akin, hindi pa ito panahon. Ang daming kailangang pagtuunan ng pansin,” she said.
