Vice President Leni Robredo said Tuesday leading typhoon relief operations on the ground was part of her job, as she parried attacks from President Rodrigo Duterte.

Robredo said she never said "Where is the President?" and that she called out Chief Presidential Legal Adviser Salvador Panelo for "peddling fake news" that incensed the President.
