After the public backlash for calling Duterte’s w@r on dr^g$ a failure, Leni Robredo played, to borrow MJ Quiambao Reyes words, the LABAN LABAN, BAWI BAWI game.
In case you missed yesterdays breaking news, the VP issued a statement denying calling for halt of the _______but simply asking the Duterte admin to reassess, not halt to ‘dr^g’ war. In short, she was simply asking for a tweak.
However, MJ Quiambao Reyes, our favorite social media blogger said she was unconvinced of Robredo’s alibi she was misquoted for several reasons.
First, she corrected herself 4-5 days later, not earlier. Reyes remarked Robredo should have corrected the headlines and articles much earlier.
Second, she should have reprimanded Reuters and the media outlets that distorted her statement and used misleading headlines.
Third, Robredo should have require them to issue public apology & errata but failed.
In other words, Reyes believed Robredo changed tune only after the severe public backlash whipped up by her statement. Reyes cited figures supporting her assertion.
Reyes said she should have stood by her earlier statement, at least the remaining 3% will continue to believe her.
Reyes concluded her FB post with words of advice to Leni Robredo and that is to re-assess what she has been telling and doing to the country. If there was something wrong, she should tweak her thinking and for once, act like she is a thinking Vice President.
You may read MJ Reyes original article below.
It’s been 4-5 days already since the news articles on your statement were released. Why then did you not correct the headlines & articles much earlier?
Why did you not reprimand Reuters or the media outlets that distorted your statement and used misleading headlines?
Why did you not require them to issue public apology & errata?
For the life of me, why can’t you just admit:
Nayanig ka lang sa tindi ng backlash kaya ka biglang kumambyo! Kung pinanindigan mo na lang sana, at least may 3% pa’ng bibilib sa iyo. 😜
Madam, kahit ano’ng palusot pa o pautot pa ang sabihin mo ngayon, napakalinaw at napakasama na ng mga binitawan mo’ng salita. Aba’y dineklara mo ba namang “failed” ang drug war sabay ginusto mo pa talagang manghimasok na ang ICC/UN para idiin ang Pangulo!
– Habang 8 out of 10 Filipinos ay satisfied sa resulta ng on going drug war
– Habang 1.6M drug users/pushers ang nag surrender (at buhay na buhay!)
– Habang 190,000 drug players ang naaresto (at buhay!)
– Habang kaliwa’t kanan ang pinapasarang shabu lab
– Habang 30%-72% ang ibinaba ng total crime rate sa iba’t ibang probinsya!
Madam, paki-assess mo nga kung tama pa ba iyang mga pinagsasabi at pinag gagagawa mo sa bayan. Kasi kung mali, kailangang i-tweak mo na yang pag iisip mo–and for once, umasta ka naman po bilang isang nag iisip na Pangalawang Pangulo.
