Shoot her down but she won’t fall: Find out why Robredo is bulletproof
Don’t expect Vice President Leni Robredo to be hysterical or fly off the handle despite the relentless attacks against her.
In an interview published on Philippine Star’s Allure section Sunday (March 5), Robredo said she feels she will never show any more strong emotions in public because she has been through the worst: the death of her husband, former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, in 2012.
“Actually yung ibang kakampi ko, nagtatanong bakit hindi ako nagpapakita ng emosyon. Yung sa akin naman, laging nakakabit yung death ng asawa ko,” she said.
“Nothing else will be more painful than that. Ano pa bang mas bibigay kapag namatayan ka ng asawa?” Robredo said.
The Vice President said she shares her perspective on dealing with attacks with her staff when the going gets tough.
“I tell my staff, let’s not get emotional. We have work to do. We will find many reasons to be depressed about. Let us not be consumed. Trabaho lang nang trabaho,” she said.
