He even said that he has been bashed so many times, but he doesn't care because all he cares about right now is the welfare of the country.
"Sari-saring bashing na ang natanggap ko. Nanganganak ang mga bashers ko, pero wala akong pakialam.
"Ang pakialam ko ay ang kapakanan ng bayan ko at ng taumbayan. Lagi kong sinasabi, kahit sino pa ang maging presidente, hindi magugutom ang pamilya ko, dahil sapat ang kinikita ko, ang naiipon ko para sa kinabukasan nila."
The comedian admitted that it was only now that he got so involved in politics, simply because he wanted a decent government.
"Kaya tumataya ako kay Leni Gerona Robredo kasi nakilala ko siya nang malaliman. Hindi pakitang tao. Totoong matulungin sa kapwa. Totoong makabayan at mahal niya ang mga Pilipino.
"Napakasipag. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng vice president na hindi basta yung naghihintay lang na mamatay ang presidente, pero totoong nagtatrabaho on the ground. Kung saan-saan pang maliliit na areas sumusuot para lang tumulong.
Umiiyak pa nga ang karamihan, dahil akala nila, pulitikong mahilig lang mangako si Leni pero hindi naman tutuparin. Iba si VP Leni. Marunong tumupad.
Kaya pansinin nyo, sa lahat ng kanyang rally na pinupuntahan, meron siyang kwento ng pagtungo doon at pagtulong nung kasagsagan ng bagyo at pandemya."
VP Leni Robredo is the incumbent vice president of the Philippines. She is a human rights lawyer. Her husband was the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo. They have three daughters, namely, Aika, Patricia, and Jillian.
A video clip of VP Leni Robredo in one of her recent mini-rallies has gone viral. The clip was shared by a Twitter user, and what tickled many netizens was when VP Leni read one of the placards. It was asking the presidential aspirant if her youngest daughter, Jillian, is single. VP made a witty reply and netizens clearly enjoyed the manner by which she responded to the one asking.
Photos of the Gensan rally of VP Leni Robredo, Sen. Kiko Pangilinan, and Tropang Angat have gone viral. A bright rainbow can be seen appearing in the skies of General Santos City. Netizens were ecstatic about its appearance, recalling that a rainbow also appeared during the grand rally of VP Leni in Bacolod, Negros Occidental. An old post of VP Leni in 2016 was likewise posted online, noting how she asked for a sign whether what she's doing is correct, a day after she accepted the call to run for vice president.
