PMA alumnus asks Leni: 'Where is Loida Lewis to lend a couple of thousand dollars?'
While some are convinced that Vice President Leni Robredo and her daughter picked up used items, others find what Robredo said was sordid.

Recently, Leni Robredo stated in her radio program Biserbisyong Leni that she and her daugher was able to grab some things from the trash bins.



Dan Jimenez, a PMA Masikap Class of 1977 said that it was not a good picture to look at, not only for the Office of the Vice President’s image but also for the image of the Philippines. Jimenez also added that if the migrants knew that Aika needs help then they would not let VP and her daughter to collect trashes in the streets of Boston.

“I don’t think the Filipino community will allow the VP to scavenge like a homeless person for that,” Jimenez said. Robredo tainted not only her office, her dignity and the Philippine’s image as well. Since Robredo and Loida Lewis seemed to be friends, then why her rich friend Lewis let her pick up some trashes.

He also asked that if this was just the same strategy as when the Vice President availed a seat in provincial bus from Manila to Bicol.

Is she fishing for sympathy? Jimenez said that it is doubtful for a well-privileged public official to beg in the streets. He also stated that “sympathy is limited by honesty.” Yes, if the pronouncement of the Vice President is true and with so much honesty, then sympathy might be showed. Otherwise, if she her statement was full of pretentiousness, she then subjected herself in a ridiculous situation and she was the joke.



Read the full post below.

I watched an interview of VP Robredo wherein she claimed that she and her daughter picked up side walk trash in Boston to equip her daughter's new dwelling for college. True or false, it does not bode well for the Philippines' image in general nor the image of the VP in particular. I believe there are more than enough well meaning Filipino expats in Boston who can contribute in cash and in kind if the VP's daughter needed help to furnish her dwelling. I don't think the Filipino community will allow the VP to scavenge like a homeless person for that. It is not only her dignity at stake but the Philippines' as well. And where is her friend multi millionaire Loida Lewis to lend a couple of thousand dollars if need be?

Is this the same MO as when she was supposed to be taking a public bus from Manila to Bicol as a congresswoman?

Sympathy is limited by honesty. There is only so much that one can believe before one questions. Much like the doubt casts on a well built man begging at the street corner. Doubt that ultimately becomes disrespect, if not outright ridicule.

There is no substitute to making it real. VP or not.
