Vice President Leni Robredo, on her verified Twitter account, replied in four letters to her rival, former senator Bongbong Marcos' latest move in his long-running electoral protest against her: "lols."
The tweet from @lenirobredo on Monday evening has gotten 15,000 retweets and 47,000 likes as of Tuesday morning.
Marcos sought the inhibition of Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen from the case, citing Leonen's bias against his family.
The Supreme Court is handling Marcos' protest against Robredo, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal. The Vice President beat the son and namesake of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos by some 200,000 votes, one of the slimmest margins in history.
Robredo retweeted with "lols," a post from One News, which reported that Marcos was seeking Leonen's inhibition when he had denied talking to Solicitor General Jose Calida about the protest.
Marcos Jr was a trending topic on Twitter on Monday after he filed his petition against Leonen. He was also a trending a few weeks back after a tourism official in his native Ilocos Norte, Jeff Ortega, was caught on video introducing him as "vice president."
