MANILA, Philippines – Vice President Leni Robredo should not hide behind her camp when responding to an argument as it showed “fake courage,” Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio said Sunday.

This was the statement of the presidential daughter after the Robredo camp slammed her on Saturday for saying that the Vice President had no right to speak about honesty and integrity given the issues that she was facing.


“A reminder to Leni Robredo: Kapag umatake ka, at sinagot ka ng inatake mo to question your authority to speak on integrity and honesty, do not retreat behind a “Robredo Camp” to answer for you and the argument you started,” Duterte-Carpio said in a statement.

“It says a lot about your fake courage,” she added.


The word war between Duterte-Carpio and Robredo started when the Davao Mayor said that “everybody lies” as she scoffed at opposition senatorial candidates who accuse pro-administration bets of telling lies.

However, Robredo said that honesty was a “huge factor” in determining one’s integrity. She also said that dishonest person should not aspire for office.

Duterte-Carpio then fired back and brought up the issues that the Vice President got involved in.

“She is not called fake VP for no reason,” she said.
