De Lima: “Duterte’s sickening misogyny is beyond reputation”
Opposition senators Leila De Lima and Francis Pangilinan expressed their support to Vice President Leni Robredo after the “meltdown” of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Earlier, Robredo received searing remarks from Duterte in his latest public address.
But on Wednesday, two opposition senators; Pangilinan and De Lima expressed their support to Robredo.
According to De Lima, while Robredo was busy helping the victims of recent typhoon devastation, the president on the other hand was busy at throwing “misogynistic comments.”
“‘Inutil’ and ‘Sinungaling’ are self-descriptive of this President and are in fact his foremost attributes and definitely not of this Vice President. Duterte’s sickening misogyny is beyond reputation,” she said.
Recently, Duterte tagged Robredo as “a dishonest person” when she apparently asked where the president was amid the wrath of Typhoon Ulysses.
“You are presuming that I should be giving orders on the day of the storm. That is stupid… That is why you cannot be President. Mahina ka. You do not give orders on the day of the war, patay ka,” Duterte said.
On the other hand, Leni Robredo denied being the person behind the #NasaanAngPangulo which trended online while the country is being devastated by typhoons.
Senator Pangilinan for his part noted that the current administration must focus on providing relief for victims of disaster and not political quarrel.
“Ang mahalaga kay VP Leni ay kung paano makatulong sa mga kababayan natin mula Cagayan hanggang Bicol na tinamaan ng bagyo. Tulong sa kapwa, hindi mga gawa-gawang kuwento at hindi away, ang dapat tuununan ng pansin ng lahat,” he said.
