Mocha Uson isn't letting alleged-Vice President Robedo get off the hook.

Mocha Uson has spoken up against Vice President Leni Robredo’s attack.

Mocha, who is beloved by the Filipino people for her empowering persona and empathy to the hardships faced by millions of Filipinos, responded to Robredo’s criticism of her with a simple request: stop changing the topic.

Read Mocha’s statement below:

HUWAG MONG ILIHIS ANG USAPAN

Tayo po ay nagsilbi lamang na boses sa mga Pilipinong nadismaya kay VP Leni at naglahad ng saloobin sa Social Media. Pinapaalala ko lamang sa kanya na ang mga Pilipinong ito rin po ang nagbabayad ng sweldo niya. May karapatan silang madismaya kung napansin nila na tila mas nagastusan pa ang media coverage ng pagpunta ni VP Leni sa kanilang lugar kaysa sa kanyang pinamigay na ayon sa isang netizen ay “5 pirasong pandesal at isang boteng tubig”.

Bakit hindi na lamang niya sinagot ang issue?
TOTOO BANG PANDESAL LANG ANG PINAMIGAY MO???
Bakit inilihis na naman sa akin ang usapin? Dahil lang ba sa binigyan natin ng boses ang mga taong nadismaya sa kanya? Kung ako ay may pananagutan sa mga Pilipino bilang isang kawani ng gobyerno, mas malaki ang pananagutan mo VP Leni dahil ikaw ang ay Bise Presidente. Kahit hindi pa tayo sigurado kung ikaw nga ba talaga ang nanalo, hawak mo ang posisyon na yan. Kaya may karapatan ang mga pilipinong kiwestyunin ka.

Hindi porke’t ako ay isa sa mga nagbigay ng boses sa kanila, ay pwede mo na lamang balewalain ang kanilang boses at sabihing “fake news” lang.

The “pandesal” issue revolves around a recent netizen’s comment that we profiled here on Mindanation that called out Robredo for her allegedly measly relief good offerings of five pieces of pandesal and a bottle of water. While any help is still appreciated, certainly the Office of the Vice President can offer something more substantial than a breakfast snack to displaced people families. And when the fact that Robredo was allegedly followed by her entourage of body guards and close-ins as well as a whole gaggle of reporters eager to make her the front page, it makes things seem a little less sincere.

Of course, the Vice President could have addressed these concerns and reassured us that her Office was actually worth its salt. Instead she attacked Mocha and deflected the question. But we’re not letting her off the hook and neither is Mocha. Answer the people.
