Vice President Leni Robredo said she found the rumors that she is pregnant funny.
However, she also noted that this can also be an insult to women.
“Ako kasi ayoko na patulan eh. Ayoko na patulan parang insulto naman yata iyon. Nakakatawa siya pero parang insulto naman yata iyon sa ating lahat na kababaihan.”
(Me, I don’t want to respond to it. It’s funny, but it’s also an insult to all women.)
Meanwhile, Georgina Hernandez, the spokesperson of Robredo, said the “well-funded and well-orchestrated” attacks on the second highest leader of the land is just a demolition job.
“We were warned about these well-funded and well-orchestrated attacks to malign the vice president. The demolition campaign has begun. And the next logistical question is: who is behind it?” said Hernandez.
Hernandez is relying on the Filipinos to separate the fake news to the real owns.
“We have complete trust in the Filipino’s ability to discern fact from fiction, and steer clear of false news. Websites that masquerade as news sources have been fabricating these rumors, which are then spread by troll armies,” Hernadez noted.
It has been noted that the rumors that Robredo is pregnant after she was advised to take a break from work because she was unwell.
