From sexy knees to her mystic smile: Duterte compares Robredo to ‘Mona Lisa’
Is President Rodrigo Duterte smitten with the country’s number two, Vice President Leni Robredo?
The way he talks about her in various speeches, it sounds like Robredo is indeed on top of Duterte’s mind.
After fawning on her sexy knees, for which he got a lot of flak, Duterte on Monday paid tribute to another facet of Robredo, this time her smile which he compared to Leonardo DA Vinci’s masterpiece.
During the ceremonial switch of a power plant at Malacanang’s Rizal Hall, Duterte told the audience that incoming appointees were better off having the more refined, not to mention more easy on the eye, Robredo administer them into office.
“Next time na you might want to, doon na lang tayo sa Vice President magpa-sworn, huwag na dito. Buti ‘yan kay mabait, the smile of Mona Lisa,” said Duterte.
Just three weeks ago, Duterte couldn’t help but talk about Robredo during the commemoration of Supertyphoon Yolanda in Tacloban City.
“Kung saan siya nagpunta, nagsunod-sunod ako, Biyuda kasi. Annulled man ako. ‘Yan totoo, annulled ako sa asawa ko. May anak ako, pero basta masuportahan lang, okay na ‘yun,” said Duterte.
Robredo is the widow of former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo and is currently head of the government’s housing portfolio.
