#LabanLeni Robredo’s parasitical relationship with Malacanang finally comes to an end

leni_robredo

Rather than be a team player, “vice president” Leni Robredo behaved like an entitled spoilt brat the whole time she “served” in the Cabinet of President Rodrigo Duterte. The expectations Duterte had of Robredo were quite simple as articulated in the official Malacanang statement on her removal from the Cabinet

As a Cabinet member, the Vice President is expected to be a team player where differences in policies and issues are discussed during Cabinet meetings. The President in turn respects any decision agreed upon by his Cabinet.

However, it has become quite apparent that Robredo has so far been an utter disappointment…

Recent events, however, showed the differences between the President and the Vice President as becoming irreconcilable and public.

The key word is how it was all aired in public.

Many observers will agree that the “vice president”, rather than act like a professional and address her gripes up the management hierarchy that she was a part of, instead used the media as her sounding board. Ask any professional in the madla and any sane person will agree that hanging your boss out to dry in public is a career-limiting move. In essence, Robredo has made a nuisance of herself in the Duterte Cabinet. How, after all, do you move forward when your own “vice president” is undermining you at every step?

But Robredo has been a lot worse than a mere nuisance. Leni Robredo has been a parasite. A parasite is an organism that eats its host from within. That is essentially what Robredo has been from the onset — the Yellowtards’ insider into the workings of the Duterte administration. The trouble with Leni the Mole is that unlike most cluey spies, she drew attention to herself thanks to her incessant schmoozing with the media. A true and effective spy would have first — and quietly — earned the confidence of her hosts and then proceeded to gather actionable intel and transmit these to her handlers.

From that perspective, Robredo not only failed the Duterte administration, she also failed her Liberal Party (LP) handlers. In Robredo’s removal from the Duterte Cabinet, the LP has lost a valuable insider and effectively cut itself out of the Malacanang loop. Not only is Robredo phyisically holding residence outside of Malacanang, she is now by all accounts a total outsider.

That’s what happens when you elect dum-dums to the highest public offices. You are left with a useless and inutile dum-dum for your trouble.

Good riddance. Now if only she will resign as “alleged” vice president and save herself further shame. She should learn from Gina Lopez and Judy Taguiwalo – class acts. Strong women. Women of action. Decent and with delicadeza.

Yes, they are women worth of respect and appreciation as they don’t politicize their respective jobs but do it for the welfare of the Filipino People and the Country.

Leni Robredo’s resignation from the Duterte Cabinet is a great early Christmas gift to the Filipino people. Thank you Lord! Now, a proper housing czar can be appointed who actually knows how to do the job, and the government can be rid of this pretender who is only using the HUDCC to promote herself as some kind of socialite princess of the poor. I remember a few months ago, Robredo and her campaign manager Bam Aquino held this anti-poverty summit that was supposed to be one of her “accomplishments” in her first 100 days. And what grand solution did they… Read more »

Wala kasi siyang delikadesa, imbes na respectful removal via not publicizing it pero ano ginawa niya? NAG-INGAY NA PARANG BATANG KINUHANAN NG KENDI.

Nagpapa-epal nanaman siya para manira at magpapansin. Hay naku walang Pilipino bumoto sa kanya maliban nalang sa mga binayaran at magic picos machine.

Ayan nanaman Yelloe Media Sinesensationalize/Pinapabango nila ang Dilaw nilang fake vp.

@view from the hill,

my view is the same as yours.

Just one word to describe that woman: “BIMBO”

Considering Hillary has her own collection of scandals and many Americans do not trust her I think the comparison is very appropriate.

I truly believed she did not win the election. I think She used the machinery of the Aquino administration to cheat her way to victory. Duterte knows that and is weary of her.

I have never seen any more stupid politician, than Leni Rob redo. It is also the fault of Pres. Duterte, that he put an incompetent government official in that position. Leni Rob redo has no working experience in Housing and Urban Development. In developed countries; Housing and Urban Development is a Technical course, taught in Universities. You can even get a Masters and a PhD degree in that field; and specialize in it… How can a woman, who won the Vice Presidency by fraudulent means; who is clueless on that field, will know anything in that position. Leni Robredo is… Read more »

Duterte did that as move of trust and goodwill. Unfortunately Leni has her own political ambition to be President. She’s a destabilizer and should be ousted. Almost everytime, the vice president becomes a pest to the objective of the President. There should be no VP elections next time. Pres and VP should come from the same party. Or else we will end up again with a dog trying to catch its own tail

People hanging on to Leni are also hanging onto a cult of personality. Their insisting on her being “incorruptible” is so cultic. Be careful.

I don’t really feel anything when either side bash and flame each other, but I chuckle and cringe when people praise to the heavens De Lima and Robredo for being “courageous” and having “paninindigan”.

Robredo needs to quit so BBM will be VP soon and many want to return

Martial Law was not that bad.

We believe that Marcos Propaganda is hip for its own good for vision of New Society.

We want to bring back Nutribun, Magasana 99 and Kadiwa.

So Pro-Marcos Loyalists, especially Ilda and Benign0 are wishing to go back to the days of Martial Law as golden years.

@Bong Panda:

We are talking here about the firing of Leni Rob redo…not the Martial Law years of Marcos Sr.

If you are one of those who is brainwashed by the Aquino Cojuangco political axis; and is afraid of the bogeyman of Marcos Sr.

Then, you can enjoy your own stupidity and ignorance.

Robredo quitting Duterte’s cabinet does not immediately cause BBM to be reinstated, although the latter’s case would be possible if the recount is to occur and results turned out different than the elections. So they say, Martial Law “wasn’t bad” for people who live their lives and followed the law, but was hell for the activists during that time. Some people even call the non-activists “cowards” for letting themselves to be “herded” by the evil dictator. I wasn’t born during that time so I could believe either side, or none of them. That said though, we still need to hold… Read more »

Nice red herring, son. Please stay on topic; you’re fooling yourself. But what do I expect from an EMO crybaby Yellowtard trollfag like yourself?

If I were you, please set your priorities for once. You’re vehemently exposed.

Why is everyone your ‘son’, dio? Are you one of those Filipinos who believes in spawning as many illegitimate offspring as humanly possible?

If you’re not familiar with American culture or even American military lingo, perhaps you need to seek help.

He has valid points. But it shouldnt be used as a destabilization tool against Duterte

Hey Dio, I know military lingo, but we are not in the fucking army here. I was already tempted many times to ask the same question Marius asked. No matter what bullshit someone posts, calling them son is condescending. That aside, would you really want an idiot to be your son? So please drop it, okay? It’s annoying.

Your habit of always adding “son” in your posts to sound like them hip Americans is so cringey…son.

Incidentally, Leni Robredo explains how Bongbong Marcos can steal her position of the Vice-Presidency! In a TV Patrol interview (Dec. 05, Philippines), the wisdom of VP Leni: (@ 25:35-27:14) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiD8nAZj1R4 Noli: Ano hu ba ang ibig sabihin n’yong nanakawin ang inyong posisyon? Sa paanong paraan po? Leni: Alam n’yo marami na kasing senyales na talagang si…yung kampo ni Bongbong Marcos ginagawa yung lahat para matanggal tayo dito. Yung pinakahuli na pruweba namin na kabahagi ito ng kanyang mga ginagawa. Nung tinext ako ni Cab.Sec. Jun Evasco, wala pang nakakaalam nun ako pa lang, mga anak ko at saka kaunting miyembro… Read more »

In her interview with Noli de Castro, Leni Robredo said she had no ambition to be president. Yet look at what she’s been up to in the few days she’s been out of the Duterte Cabinet: “The woman who could take down Rodrigo Duterte: His soft-spoken even-tempered vice president” http://qz.com/856697/the-woman-who-could-take-down-rodrigo-duterte-his-soft-spoken-even-tempered-vice-president/ The yellow PR machine is already grinding out Robredo puff pieces in foreign media, positioning her as the alternative to Duterte in the event of a takedown. Don’t be surprised if Robredo takes her modeling and pabebe routine to international audiences soon. She has so much free time on her… Read more »
