A dramatic photo of VP Leni Robredo together with some unnamed individuals conducting an ocular inspection of the typhoon and flood-ravaged Cagayan Valley has been making the rounds on social media.
However, the dramatic photo of the Vice President has left some of her staunchest critics questioned whether it was staged or a candid shot.
Jay Sonza, one of Robredo’s unabashed critics, took to Facebook to share his opinion on the photo.
Sonza began by giving netizens who are aspiring to be a PR or image handlers in the future a heads up.
“Magsilbi sanang leksyon ito sa mga future PR o image handlers.”
Sonza remarked that next time make sure their client will not be criticized or scrutinized for faults.
“Next time tiyaking ninyong hindi mapupulaan o masisilipan ng butas ang iyong kliyente.”
Sonza cited the photo of Robredo – wherein a photo was taken as if she conducted a survey of the typhoon’s path.
“Tulad na lamang nito – nagpapiktyur kunyari nagsarbey sa dinaan ng Bagyo.”
Sonza cited what he deemed two mistakes of the photo of the Vice President.
One, how did Robredo’s group managed to hurdle the huge fallen tree that blocked their path where they came from?
“Una, paano sila narating dito galing sa likod samantalang may nakabaladrang puno sa pinagmulan.”
Sonza said it is very obvious to him that Robredo was simply there for the photo-op and did not conduct a real survey.
“So obvious na nagpakodak lang sila at hindi totoong nag-ikot.”
Sonza remarked that the gimme was Robredo’s white shoes.
“Second, binahang lugar ang pupuntahan, ni hindi man lang nadantian ng dumi ang white shoes (a no-no wardrobe component in dissaster relief) ni client.”
Meanwhile, Sonza did not let the opportunity to pass without asking Robredo about another photo wherein she caught holding a bagful of fishcracker.
“By the way, ano bang gimik iyong may kalong-kalong na isang sakong kropek o fishcracker?”
Sonza remarked that these are the reasons why he thinks Robredo makes the impression she is an “orocan” or plastic because of such stunts.
“Kayo tuloy lumalabas na orocan itong ganitong gimik.”
In fairness to Leni Robredo, her group managed to go from point A to point B, meaning from one side of the huge fallen tree to the other by ducking under the tree. Look!
