A journalist posted something on Facebook that attracted the trolls from both sides of the political fences, sparking a raging debate between opposing forces.
In a Facebook post, Isah Red, a journalist affiliated with The Standard took a dig at VP Robredo with this statement that reads:
Bakit nakikipagkumpetensya ang VP sa P sa inauguration sa Hwebes? Eh…ang P naman ang importante sa RP. Hindi ang VP.
The FB Page “Showbiz Government” echoed the journalist’s sentiment and posted a status update via a meme with the caption that reads:
Bakit nga? Why is Leni Robredo competing with Rody Duterte to get media space and attention?
Let us check out the comments below of the netizens, in response to the question posed by Isah Red.

Dapat tahimik na lang sya at ibigay sa bagong pangulo ang nararapat at hndi yung nang-aagaw ng eksena. Ano ba yan? Parang network wars ha ha ha ha ha!
But Ramona Monette S. Flores has a different take on the subject matter and wrote:
The Constituion requires the VP to take the Oath of Office just before the P. Kaya nga sana joint inauguration. Ngayon dahil separate dapat coordination sa timing.
Ying Cuan Maronilla commented and defended Robredo.
Dapat kasi sabay sa isang venue ahead lng ang vp then ang p kaso ayaw ng p nyo makisabay, ayaw makipag usap so gagawa din nm cya ng plano na gusto nya..put urself on her shoes wat will u do…daming issue tama na, tigil di na nakakatuwa at ang stress nakakamatay yan CHILL..

Kompetensya? Kailangan din nyang manumpa. Wala sanang sapawan na kinatatakutan mo kung joint sila as per history & protocol. May susumpaan syang tungkulin para sa laylayan ng lipunan. Sapaw? Trabaho nya yun, hindi sya wall flower na lang kasi deadma sa kanya ang tatay mong palaaway at palamura.

There was no fuss over Binay or Noli. Not even Biden was fussed over. If the VP’s allies don’t assassinate the P, then she will just be decorative. That’s why I favor a president and vp coming from the same party. The same ticket.
Netizen Samuel Roldan holds an intriguing theory and wrote:
Umaasa sa Plan B ang hitad….!!!
