Following the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses, in his latest national address, Pres. Rodrigo Roa Duterte slammed Vice Pres. Leni Robredo. Seemingly, the President is accusing the VP of the spread of questions asking his whereabouts amid the onslaught of the tropical storm.

Pres. Duterte told the 2nd top official of the government that the military was deployed two days before the typhoon struck Luzon. He also stressed that he was awake then attending the Summit and that he is a night person.

“Kung sabihin ko tuloy sayo, what time did you go home? Ikaw, noong gabi, anong oras ka umuwi? Isang bahay ka lang ba, dalawang bahay?” the President said.

“Eto po yung ginagawa namin gabi gabi, nagpupuyat ilang linggo na para, araw-araw, may madala lang na tulong sa mga nangangailangan,” the Vice President said.
