Senator Robin Padilla has been called an ingrate by Marcos loyalists for writing an appreciation post to Kris Aquino, the Dutertes and Senator Bong Go for his highly successful senatorial bid while forgetting to acknowledged PBBM in that same FB post.
Many Marcos loyalists were so angry because of that FB post that some even swore this is going to be Senator Robin Padilla’s first and last term in the senate.
After a long silence from Senator Robin Padilla’s camp, Mrs. Mariel Padilla, finally have spoken and belied that her husband did not thank PBBM, thus earning the ire of the Marcos loyalist who quickly declared war against the neophyte senator without getting their facts straight first.
In a very brief FB post, Mrs. Padilla wrote that as early as May 14, with exclamation points for emphasis, her husband already thanked President PBBM. The first person he said his thank you of all people.
May 14!!!! May 14 pa lang nagpasalamat na si Robin Padilla kay President BBM. Una siyang pinasalamatan bago ang lahat. Here is a photo of Robin with PBBM and Sen Bong Go during VP Sara Duterte’s oath taking we greatly appreciate President BBM’s kindness.
A quick glance at the screengrabbed photo showed that indeed Senator Robin Padilla did write an appreciation FB post for PBBM via his FB post dated May 14, 2022.
The actor turned politician called PBBM a personal friend whom he described as the most gentleman and no bullshit friend. Why did Senator Padilla called PBBM the most gentleman?
Well, an incident during the debut of Ana Roces, wherein a drunk actor approached them and made nasty remarks but instead of answering back and create a scene, PBBM simply smiled and calmly walked away.
Next, Senator Robin Padilla talked how PBBM did not hesitate to give him the stage during the UniTeam campaign sorties so he can campaign although at that time, he could not openly endorse PBBM because he is from PDP Laban and his party has yet to adopt PBBM as their presidential candidate.
But when PDP Laban officially endorsed PBBM, Senator Padilla said he returned the favor and disengaged from UniTeam campaign sorties by visiting every crook and crannies in Mindanao to campaign for then presidential candidate and now President-elect PBBM.
