Actor Robin Padilla is setting the record straight to enlighten Vice President Leni Robredo about the government’s disaster response.

Padilla, in a post on Instagram, told Robredo the Duterte administration has better disaster preparedness and mitigation compared to that of the past Aquino administration.

He said there has been a lower death toll in the recent typhoons that hit the country, compared to the deaths recorded during typhoons Yolanda and Ondoy that happened under then President Aquino’s watch.

“Ang pinakamalinaw naman pong batayan o basehan ay Figures at Facts. Sa yolanda super typhoon po with full media coverage kasama na po ang cnn international na ang namamahala po ay partido po ninyo na LP Lagpas po sa 15 libo ang namatay at nagdaan po ang buong termino ay wala naman pong tunay na rehabilitasyon na nangyari sa leyte,” Padilla said.

“Ganon din po sa ondoy na mahigit isang daan ang namatay with full media coverage,” he added.

Padilla offered the latest “figures and facts” in response to Robredo’s plea that Duterte should not be onion-skinned about criticisms. He said Duterte was obviously more disaster- ready compared to his predecessor.

“Kaya po madame vice president sa usapin po na ito hindi po si mayor ang balat sibuyas dahil malinaw po kay Rolly at Ulysses na mas naging handa ang lahat ng mga ahensiya ng gobyerno dahil ang mga nadisgrasya po at namatay ay higit na mas mababa ang bilang,” he said.

The pro-Duterte celebrity also told Robredo that the President is not at all sensitive to criticisms. But he said criticism was different from “black propaganda.”

“Ang pagpuna po sa ginagawa ng gobyerno ay karapatan po ng sinoman pilipino. Ang hindi po katanggap tanggap ay ang paggawa ng mga hindi totoong kwento para siraan ang isang tao,” Padilla said.

He said the President is not easily annoyed especially from KSP or “kulang sa pansin” critics.

“Pero wag po kayo mag alala hindi naman marunong mapikon si mayor PRRD lalo na po kung galing sa mga Kulang sa Pansin ang banat nagsisilbi na lang po na Charity yun ni mayor sa mga naiinggit sa kanya para naman kahit paano ay sumaya sila,” he said.
