EDITORIAL: How to avoid impeachment

She asked for a reason why and a basis for her to be impeached.

For the benefit of the doubt, let’s just say Vice President Leni Robredo does not know the meaning of betrayal of public trust.

Many people now believe that the problem with the Vice President is she opens her mouth apparently without thinking and reviewing. So whatever is fed to her, she swallows it without masticating.

When she did that video purposively for a foreign audience, she clearly did not bother to check the facts and just read the script and tried to look good before the camera.

But there’s not a drama to that. She had the chance to edit, delete and re-shoot the video. She can do another take and correct the wrong parts after many had called her attention to it after the same has been posted on social media.

Did she bother? Not again.

She took it hook, line and sinker.

That’s the problem when you have a leader who is not thinking. Or even listening.

Look, what do you call it when somebody backbites her own country, and her own government before the international community?

Let’s put it simply. What do you call it when a woman tells her neighbor how bad her husband and her household is?

VP Robredo had already embraced the confines of betrayal before she even realizes it.

House Speaker Pantaleon D. Alvarez said he is looking at the possibility of filing impeachment complaints against Robredo for betrayal of public trust.

Senate President Aquilino “Koko” L. Pimentel III likewise said there is a greater likelihood that Robredo would get impeached noting it takes only the signatures of 100 congressmen to bring any impeachment complaint straight to the Senate and begin a trial.

VP Robredo asked for it, she will most likely get what she deserves.
