#LeniAngatSaLahat was the worldwide number one trending topic on social media platform on Twitter as Vice President Leni Robredo faced TV host Boy Abunda in his series of presidential interviews.
#LetLeniSpeak and “VP Leni” were also among the top trending topics until Thursday, Jan. 27, morning.
Robredo was a guest on Abunda’s “2022 Presidential One-on-One Interviews” which was aired on Wednesday, Jan. 26.
The hashtag #LeniAngatSaLahat was tweeted more than 171,000 times as netizens praised Robredo for her answers on various issues, particularly on topics such as economic recovery, pandemic response, drug war, and the “political fast talk” segment where she called former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. a “liar.”
“VP Leni is ready. Can’t wait for her to be our president,” actor-model Elijah Canlas (@elijahcanlas_) said.
“Despite all the interruptions, she was able to articulate her answers well. Her responses were clear, concrete and experienced based. She is confident, knowledgeable and speaks from heart. My President is ready!” @R4FFYM chimed.
"VP Leni Robredo responses were not only bold but also substantive & methodical. She's data-driven, delivery-oriented & transparent. She answered based experiences & best practices. Im proud & loud that she's my President," @JerrydaOptimist added.
“Sobrang nakaka-proud si VP Leni Robredo! Napakaganda ng mga sagot (VP Leni Robredo makes us proud! She answers well)! Speaking with clear directions and intensions, full of confidence, knowledge, and she’s fully armed with concrete plans. Detalyado (detailed), may (has the) track record, may paninidigan at pangarap (has a stand and dream),” visual artist Kerwin King (@imkerwinking) said.
"Grabe yun FAST TALK shades ni LENI (Leni’s fast talk shades are too much),” commented political analyst Richard Heydarian (@Richeydarian).
“Catching up on the Leni Robredo interview by Boy Abunda. She is so clearly a woman with a plan #LeniAngatSaLahat #LetLeniSpeak,” blogger and social media influencer Saab Magalona-Bacarro (@saabmagalona) added.
The hashtags #LetLeniSpeak and #AbundaBiased also trended because of the TV host’s numerous interruption while Robredo was explaining her answers. Netizens said he was not the same with Senator Panfilo Lacson and Marcos, whose interviews aired before Robredo.
"Why am I sensing that Tito Boy is (intellectually) competing with VP Leni in here? hahaha. the way he interrupts her is really so annoying na ha..," said @MyEnkeli.
"When Leni said, "bigyan mo akong (give me) time to rundown tito boy,” She knew that she has a lot to say and she was interrupted HAHAHAHA," @angqalat quipped.
"Let Leni Speak, Tito Boy," @sosyolohija told Abunda.
“Boy Abunda is called “King of Talk” for a reason because he does not know how to listen without interrupting. #LeniAngatSaLahat,” Twitter user @RoldanSevilla said.
