It seems that Vice President Leni Robredo would get support from the megastar Sharon Cuneta after the latter already said that she’s hoping for the former to be the successor of President Rodrigo Duterte in 2022.
In her Instagram Livestream, Cuneta talked about the man she vowed to held liable for his threats against her daughter Frankie Pangilinan.
The man who was identified as Sonny Alcos was accused of being a supporter of Duterte, and some supporters of the President defended the former to Cuneta’s wrath.
Cuneta expressed her sadness over what’s happening right now in the Filipinos, saying that netizens became more disrespectful now and not thinking if their words are hurting others anymore.
The megastar assured the netizens that she’s still a friend of President Duterte despite the statements of the chief executive against her husband Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan who’s a member of the opposition.
Cuneta met President Duterte several times in the past and even dine together in Malacanang.
“I’ve always been good, or at least I’ve tried separating politics from friendships and relationships… So ‘yung asawa ko minsan masasakit na ‘yung salita ng Pangulo against him kasi hinahayaan ko lang kasi iniisip ko they’re both politicians, although it would hurt me,” Cuneta said.
“Pero since ang trato sa akin ng Pangulo parang anak niya, ang tawag niya pa sa akin, ‘the singer of my life,’ tapos mahal ko si Inday Sara kasi maliit pa ‘yan Sharonian na ‘yan,” she added.
She also mentioned that she didn’t react negatively even if the President claimed that she already separated from her husband.
Cuneta then said that she only knew few people from the Liberal Party and only endorsed Vice President Leni Robredo in 2016 because she knew the latter and her husband former Interior Secretary Jessie Robredo as clean politicians.
“Alam ko na talaga ‘yung mag asawang yan, sobrang tino kahit tanungin niyo pa ang buong Bicol, talagang sobrang walang corruption sa record ni Sec. Jessie na naging Mayor at si VP Leni hindi pa siya tumatakbo ay kilala ko na siya, napaka disente talaga,” she said.
Cuneta revealed that she’s eyeing for Poe as President last 2016, calling her also a ‘disente’.
The megastar then made a big revelation, saying that she’s hoping for Robredo to run in 2022.
“I don’t know what’s happened to our country. I hope VP Leni runs for president next time, dahil hindi na rin naman makakatakbo si Tatay next time, one term lang diba… napaka disente… Nakakatakot na kasi, ngayon lang ako naka experience ng ganito,” she stated.
“Pagkatapos ng term ni Pangulong Duterte, sana talaga manalo si VP Leni kung tumakbo siya. Baka sakaling bumalik ang pagka disente ng karamihan sa atin,” she added while trying to stop her tears from falling.
After expressing support to Robredo, Cuneta then talked about the people comparing her daughters KC Concepcion and Frankie Pangilinan.
The megastar received tremendous amount of criticism on social media after she got involved in the issues being faced by her husband Sen. Pangilinan and daughter Frankie.
