Netizens took to social media after one of the leading news media outlet SMNI released an interesting expose about the contradicting statements released by VP Leni Robredo on how should candidates accept defeats and whatever results of any elections. Last January 20, 2020 VP Leni Robredo said that “Karapatan ng kahit sino na tumakbo. Pero dapat lahat ng tatakbo, tatanggapin iyong resulta ng eleksyon. Kasi kung matatalo ka, hindi mo tatanggapin eh ‘wag ka nang tumakbo.”This is clearly a statement of leaders running in any position to gracefully accept defeat but this statement is indeed contrary to the next statement of the outgoing Vice President. On May 10, 2022, one day after the election and the results favored VP Leni’s opponent, Presidential frontrunner Bongbong Marcos, the Vice President released a contradictory statement. VP Leni was quoted as saying “Hindi lang panghihinayang kundi malinaw na pagkadismaya ang nararamdaman ng ating hanay. Mulat din ako lalo pa dahil may naiulat na irregularities sa halalang ito. Kaisa ninyo ako sa paniniwala na kailangang isalamin ng halalan ang buo at wastong tinig ng taumbayan.”Due to the contradicting statement made by the outgoing Vice President, netizens took to social media and aired their concerns and dismay towards the Vice President. Read Some of the Comments from Netizens:Charlie Amor: “A taste of your own medicine”Cess Abacan: Busog na busog na si Mama Lenlen sa mga sinabi niya.
