WALA DAW SINABI SI LUGS
Lawyer Bruce V. Rivera has taken to Facebook to accuse Leni Robredo of dishonesty when she claimed she never insinuated the government did nothing when Ulysses struck Cagayan Province.
However, Rivera noted that Robredo also said the government was not heeding distress calls.
“Akala ko ba never nag-insinuate si Leni na walang ginagawa ang gobyerno sa pagragasa ng Ulysses sa Cagayan Province when she clearly said that the government was not heeding the distress calls.”
First, Atty. Rivera remarked that Robredo personally went to Cagayan Valley when she could have coordinated with the LGU, AFP, PNP and PCG and call out their attention to the distress calls. (In fairness to Robredo, she did call out the AFP but via Twitter but an unofficial means of communicating since she was not part of Chain of Command). Rivera said Robredo went to ground zero in person to show to the people that she cares. He saw nothing wrong with that. However, Rivera argued that she could have done so without making it appear she was the only one working. Rivera uttered that as VP, she was aware there are people in government who will bear the brunt of the public if they fail to respond to these kind of situation. Rivera accused Robredo of assuming without validating, ergo she disregarded the thousands of government rescuers and responders who were already on the ground. In other words, Leni made herself look good at the expense of other people. He advised Robredo to help but stop saying that she went to help because others didn’t. Rivera cited the example of Sara Duterte who sent help to Isabela without telling anyone. It was the isabela Governor who told the media.
“Una, ikaw mismo ang pumunta dun na pwede naman na magcoordinate ka sa LGU AFP, PNP, PCG and call out their attention to the distress calls. You went on the ground kasi gusto mo magpakita sa mga tao that you care. And there is nothing wrong with it. Pero sana you could have done without making it appear na ikaw lang ang nagtatrabaho. As VP, alam mo na may mga tao sa gobyerno mo na malilintikan sa taumbayan kung di sila makatugon sa mga ganito. By just assuming and not validating, you simply disregarded the thousands of government rescuers and officials who were already on the ground. In short, pinabango mo ang sarili dahil pinalabas mo na walang ginawa ang iba. Tumulong ka pero huwag mong sabihin na tumulong ka dahil walang tumutulong. Si Inday Sara nagpadala ng tulong sa Isabela pero wala kang narinig. Ang Governor ng Isabela ang nagsabi at hindi media.”
Meanwhile, Rivera cautioned Robredo from saying that it was just gimmick for Duterte to say he was hurting because of the tweet of Leni’s daughters. He asked Leni Duterte’s meltdown was highlighted in the media like he was given the wrong information? He asked Leni if the tweets of her daughters mocking President Duterte was fake? Rivera asked Robredo if she agrees that her daughter indeed tweeted, alluding to Duterte, was soundly asleep inside the mosquito net because it was still 8AM and a Saturday? He asked if her daughters’ action showed a semblance of respect? As a mother, will Robredo let the rudeness of her daughters slide? Why is she complaining that her daughters are getting their own dose of medicine so to speak?
“At huwag sanang sabihin na paandar lang ang pagsabi ni PRD na nasaktan siya saTweet ng mg anak ni Leni. Di ba nga, mas nahighlight yung meltdown niya sa media na parang given false information. Bakit, fake ba ang pang-ookray ng mga anak ni Leni? Di ba totoo na sinasabi nila na tulog na mahimbing sa loob ng kulambo dahil 8AM ng Sabado. Yan ba pagpapakita ng konting respeto. At bilang nanay, hahayaan ba niya ang kabastusan ng anak. So bakit kayo ngayon pumapalag sa kabastusan kung kabastusan din naman ang sinimulan nito.”
Rivera took a swipe at Robredo, saying that pretending to be nice when the people in your circle started the hashtag against PRRD is hard. And when PRRD retaliated, Robredo uses the female card.
“Mahirap kasi magkunwaring mabait kung ang nagpapalibot sa inyo ang mga nagpapanimula ng mga hashtag laban kay PRD. Tapos pag sinagot ka ni PRD, ilalabas mo ang female card at bastos na si PRD.”
Rivera wondered why they wants to pull down PRD when he is not eligible to run in 2022? Instead of claiming the DDS, Robredo is just making them angrier. He said those pretending to be her allies, when the time comes, they will pledge their allegiance to the one who smells good. And Rivera said, it is not Robredo.
“Ang pinagtataka ko, bakit niyo gustong itumba si PRD eh di niyo siya makakalaban sa 2022? Imbes na mahimasmasan ang mga DDS, mas lalong nagagalit sa inyo. At kayo ang lugi. Ang mga kunwariy kakampi ninyo, pagdating ng panahon, lilipat yan sa mas mabango. At hindi ikaw yun, madame.”
