Manila, Philippines – Another viral Tweet is circulating in social media amid the crisis happening in the entire Visayas region after typhoon Odette’s onslaught last week. The said post explicitly cited that the only working politician in the national government is VP Leni Robredo.
JC Punongbayan said on his Tweet last December 20, 2021:
Si VP @lenirobredo na lang ba ang nagtatrabaho sa national government. Feels like that.
It only went viral mid of this week when large Facebook pages shared the screenshot of JC Punongbayan’s Tweet.
The short post irked thousands and possibly millions of Filipinos as the message is negating the efforts and initiatives of various branches of the national government. One netizen bravely commented that it is an insult to the Armed Forces of the Philippines who were among the first group to respond to the typhoon victims in Visayas and Mindanao. It is also undeniable that there has been so many relief operations being conducted by DSWD, PNP, and other major government personnel who sacrificed their lives and braced through the danger just to provide aide those areas affected by the calamity.
