As the self-proclaimed leader of the opposition, Leni Robredo thought the public could use her voice to ask questions that she thought would serve public interest.
The Manila visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping that resulted in several deals signed between the Philippines and China has once again gave Robredo the platform to play the ‘heroine’.
So with the help of her mainstream media friends, Robredo asked the Duterte government for transparency re RP-China signed deals.
However, while Robredo’s call for transparency has been well-received by her loyal supporters, critics like Krizette Laureta Chu, an NYU alumna couldn’t help but put Robredo and her latest statement against Duterte under the microscope. Her findings? Robredo is ‘tamad’ in vernacular or ‘lazy’.
In other words, instead of drawing praises from the public, Robredo’s statement has backfired.
In the viral FB post, Chu stated that statements like this from Robredo confirmed all along the public perception that Leni is not a good VP.
Chu said that Leni only plays to the public.
“If she really were interested to know, she would go to the President and ask him. She is definitely in a position to. She’s the VP. She can use her position to open the dialogue,” Chu asserted.

This is why Leni is not seen as a good VP, because she only plays to the public. If she really were interested to know, she would go to the President and ask him. She is definitely in a position to. She’s the VP. She can use her position to open the dialogue.
Kung hindi sya sagutin ng maayos, she can tell the public. Dun sya pwede mag ingay. Dun may ma rereport sya na of substance. Sabihin nya na tinatago sa kanya. Na ma anomalya. Na may tinatago.
Hindi yung magtatanong sya in a statement, sa media pa. That’s when you know this woman is not earnest in her desire to serve. She only wants to politicize everything. Talagang walang mangyayari.
Wala na sya sa Aquino admin where everything was kept under wraps, there’s an FOI bill now, and we live in the age of social media.
Hindi yan gaya ng Aquino admin na sila sila lang nila Trillanes yung nandoon para pag usapan yung backdoor nego with China na super secret.
King ina, andon lahat halos ng cabinet secretaries. Televised pa ang event.
Wala ka bang kaibigang cabinet secretary na pwedeng tanungan? Baka pwede ikaw na magtanong kung ano ang laman ng MOA?
Wala ka nang halaga, Leni. Nuisance ka na lang. Di mo man lang magamit ang posisyon mo para maging tunay na Oposisyon. Mema ka lang para lang magpabango nang wala man lang ka effort effort.
You are the worst. Sayang ka. Kaya walang maayos na Oposisyon ang bansang ito kasi puro kayo pabida, kontrabida naman.
Opposition ka, VP ka, dapat ikaw ang mag ask sa President to make public all the documents IN PERSON. You are the voice of Opposition, and you are to serve US, whether we are pro or anti government. You should ask Duterte as the Opposition, and as his VP. You have every right. You have more right than reporters as part of the GOVERNMENT, at kung itabla ka at di sagutin, report mo sa amin para kami ang magwala para sa iyo. That’s how real work is done.
KASALANAN MO KUNG BAKIT WALANG OPOSISYONG MAAYOS ANG DUTERTE GOVERNMENT KASI AYAW MO MAG TRABAHO NG TOTOO. Bawal mag research at mag inquire at mag meeting? Puro statement sa media?
