Yesterday, President Rodrigo Duterte called Vice President Leni Robredo “incompetent” and vowed that he would not resign just to give his position to the latter.
This remarks of the President triggered the camp of the Vice President, including Robredo’s legal adviser Atty. Barry Gutierrez.
Gutierrez released to condemn the recent statements of Duterte against Robredo.
“Incompetent? Nagsalita ang magaling!” Gutierrez told the press.
He listed some of the things that he believes, a failure of the Duterte administration, like the rising price of goods, the decreasing amount of peso value and the rampant killings around the Philippines.
“Inflation: 5.2%. Bigas: P42/kilo. $1 = P53.51. Dagdag sa pambansang utang: P1.19 trillion. Sariling karagatan: Bawal sa Pinoy. Trapik: Palala pa. Patayan, tila araw-araw na lang,” Gutierrez said.”
Several hours after Gutierrez’ tirades against the Duterte government, Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles tried to debunk the list of the Vice President’s legal adviser.
In her post, Atty. Trixie explained to her followers, why Gutierrez statement should not be taken seriously by the netizens.
You can read her whole post below:
Inflation is 5.2 because BuildBuildBuild. What has Leni done, except TravelTravelTravel?
Bigas P42/k? NFA rice at P27/kilo
1P = $53.1? Gurl, kasalanan ni Duterte lumakas ang dollar? Due to interest rate increases sa US Federal Reserve yan.
Sariling karagatan bawal sa Pinoy? Sino nagpamigay ng Scarborough? Kamusta na kaya si Sonny T?
Traffic, palala pa? Sabi ni dating PNoy sign of progress yan!
Patayan, araw araw na lang? 70 thousand murders and homicides during PNoy’s term. You want to lump all deaths together without going into causes?
Nagsalita ang magaling? Hindi. Nagsalita ang 16million
And finally, bakit di nyo pinasasagot si Leni?
Matt Irasga, another supporter of President Duterte said that the statements of Atty. Gutierrez is an evidence that Vice President Leni Robredo is really incompetent.
“Proof of incompetence: Leni needs someone to defend her,” Irasga said in his tweet.
As of writing, Vice President Robredo is not yet releasing a statement on the criticism that she received from President Duterte.
