A video of Leni Robredo asking fellow Bicolanos to have picture with them circulates on Facebook.
Blogger Edwin Jamora had a good laugh watching this because he said, a scene like this will never happen to President Duterte.
Jamora wrote the caption in Bicolano, but of course, he provided the English and tagalog translation for the benefit of non-Bicolano readers.
Jamora revealed that a Facebook follower and fellow Bicolanos forwarded him the video.
“Si Manay Leni, nakikimaherak na magpalitrato si mga tawo saiya hahaha! Lintian sa boray ni apo nya ang hamag na an!
Translation: Manay Leni is asking these folks to have a picture with them! Hahaha! Kung si President Duterte? Nunca ever hahaha! Tse!
Thank you sa mga kapwa ko Bicolanos who sent me this!”
The video has elicited negative remarks from netizens versus Leni Robredo.
One netizen likened Robredo to someone begging for love. “Palimos ng Pag-ibig” ang peg ni manay!!”
This netizen can’t help but compare that while Duterte needs crowd control, Robredo needs to call people for photo ops. “Kung si Digong may crowd control, kay manay nagtatawag pa ng tao for photo Ops.. hihihi”
Another netizen commented that it appeared to him that people who were asked to join the photo-op were against and it showed on their faces. “Labag sa loob ng mga kababayan nya, kaya makikita sa mga mukha nla ang pagka dismaya”
This netizen remarked that she found it strange that Robredo was asking for a photo, not the other way around. “Baliktad yata? Usually fans ang mag-request ng selfie sa maniniyot.“
One netizen joked that Robredo asked for photo for documentation purposes. “For documentation purposes daw sa sobrang sipag hindi na nya mahintay na sya ang ayain ng tao magpa picture “
This netizen commented that Leni Robredo is different because there is no grandstanding but the photo op is mandatory. “Iba tlga sya, wlang grandstanding nagpapa pic lang pero sapilitan”
This netizen said it best to describe Robredo’s situation in the video. “There goes the … photo ops queen!… kulang na lang hilahin mga tao, pictorial mileage of the fvp …”
