Caught On Tape: Conversation Between President Duterte And VP Robredo During The PNPA Commencement Ceremonies

IMG_9921.PNGSILANG, Cavite, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – President Rodrigo Duterte was the guest of honor and speaker at the 38th commencement exercises for the 2017 Masidlak class of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) at Camp Gen. Mariano Castaneda, Silang, Cavite, today.

Vice President Leni Robredo, who has spent the last couple of weeks criticizing Duterte before local and international groups and the media, was also invited to the event.

The planned seating arrangement on stage was for another VIP guest to sit between Duterte and Robredo.  But as Robredo was about to take her assigned seat, Duterte himself moved the VP to sit right next to him.  Of course, Duterte can do anything he wants.  He is    also the Commander-in-Chief of the Philippine National Police.

The Adobo Chronicles planted a secret microphone underneath the President’s chair, and so we caught part of the conversation that happened between Duterte and Robredo.

Here’s a transcript:

Duterte: Good morning Madam. Dito rin pala kayo.

Robredo: Siyempre naman, Sir.  After all, ako ang VP.

Duterte: That’s true. Wala pa kasing decision ang Supreme Court sa election protest ni Bongbong Marcos.

Robredo: Sana naman, manalo ako sa kaso.

Duterte: Eh kumusta naman yung kasong gusto mong isampa laban sa akin sa United Nations.

Robredo: Naku Sir, hindi naman po ako ang may pakana niyan.

Duterte: Kung hindi ikaw, eh sino?

Robredo: Mahirap na hong magsalita.  Kasi I might incriminate myself.

Duterte: Kahit clue man lang?

Robredo: Sa atin atin na lang ito Sir, ha?  Clue: mga miyembro ng partidong kalaban niyo noong nakaraang eleksiyon.

Duterte: Eh di kasama ka doon?

Robredo:  Sir, promise to God, ginagamit lang ako nila.

Duterte: Eh saan kayo kumukuha ng pera para pondohan ang kampanya niyo laban sa akin?

Robredo: Kayo naman Sir, parang hindi niyo alam.   Siyempre si Loida Nicolas-Lewis.

Duterte: Uy, sorry nawala sa isip ko. Kulang kasi ako sa tulog eh. Kumusta naman ang laylayan?

Robredo: Hindi ko po alam ang latest, Sir. Kasi busy ako sa  kamo-model sa front page ng mga fashion magazines. Alam niyo na, para may trabaho naman ako pag na-impeach ako.

Duterte: Siyanga pala, bakit ba puro ka na lang  batikos sa akin sa media at social media? Halos araw araw, mayroong kang sinasabi laban sa akin!

Robredo: Sir, sa totoo lang. Wala akong kinalaman diyan.  Paki tanong niyo na lang kay Georgina Hernandez.

Duterte: Between you and me, totoo ba yung tsismis tungkol sa iyo at yung Congressman na bigotilyo?
