On her way to deliver aid to victims of Typhoon Ulysses, Vice President Leni Robredo took a swipe at her critics, tweeting that she was bringing lugaw or rice porridge.
“May dala kaming lugaw,” the Vice President said in retort which immediately gained traction on Twitter. The reply is an allusion to the "Leni Lugaw" remark from supporters of her 2016 rival, former senator Bongbong Marcos.
Marcos is protesting Robredo's win by some 200,000 votes.
Early this week, Marcos sought the inhibition of Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen from his election protest, accusing the magistrate of bias against his family. Robredo responded on Twitter with a curt "lols".
