Was the visit of Vice Pres­i­dent Leni Ro­bredo to the tomb of Cebu Arch­bishop Emer­i­tus Ricardo Car­di­nal Vi­dal too late?

Many ne­ti­zens ex­pressed con­trast­ing views as Ro­bredo vis­ited Car­di­nal Vi­dal inside the Cebu Metropoli­tan Cathe­dral mau­soleum on Oc­to­ber 28.

Rey­naldo Rivera

com­mented, “It’s so clear that she vis­ited just now so she gets all the lime­light and pub­lic­ity to her­self. And I thought the church is clos­ing the mau­soleum for five days? How come the VP was able to get inside?”

Luz Bul­le­cer

said, “You’re too late, Ma’am. Maybe you’ve read how peo­ple bash(ed) Noynoy for not com­ing dur­ing the wake and the burial. Are you try­ing to cover up for him?”

Jeff Grey,

mean­while, has a dif­fer­ent take on the is­sue. He said, “There are just so many close-minded peo­ple here. She is vis­it­ing a dead per­son. Don’t make it a venue for your wrong judg­ments for the sake of hav­ing some­thing to talk about.”

Ryan John Su­ma­gang

also de­fended the church for al­low­ing Ro­bredo to visit the mau­soleum. “Of course the church will al­low her to get inside, she’s the vice pres­i­dent. Are you se­ri­ous? If you’re bit­ter about it, you run for govern­ment po­si­tions, too.”
