“Bukod sa mga nakakarecover sa C0VID-19, isa ito sa napakagandang balita at tanawin sa social media. Salamat po Mr. President. Sana laging ganito,” the comedian wrote on Instagram.

Pokwang prayed that God may guide the nation, the President and the Vice President. The Kapamilya star’s post trended on social media, with more than 45,000 likes as of posting.

Netizens agreed with the comedienne.

“I strongly agree, sa panahon ngayon ay kailangan nating magtulungan dahil hindi natin nakikita ang totoong kalaban. Social distancing at stay at home.”

Another wrote, “Sana lahat ng artista ay kapareho ninyo, hindi puro pambabatikos. Sa panahong ito, dasal ang kailangan natin at hindi puro daldal.”

“Let’s pray for him amidst all criticisms he’s experiencing right now. Let us pray for him instead of ranting on social media.”

Virtual Pinoy shared that former Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) Commissioner Manuelito Luna said he wanted to probe Robredo for her efforts in raising funds to help frontliners.

Luna said the Vice President needs to be investigated for “illegal solicitations, actions that compete with, or are calculated to undermine the national government’s efforts in this time of public health emergency or national calamity.”

The PACC commissioner has later conceded from his post following the call from the President for him to resign. Meanwhile, PACC Commissioner and spokesperson Greco Belgica earlier said the investigation was Luna’s personal opinion which does not reflect that of the entire agency.

Duterte said there were times when he criticized Robredo but he finds no fault for the Vice President for helping: “Bakit mo paimbestiga? ‘Yung NBI na mag-imbestiga, pati kayo isali ko sa dismissal. Ignorante kayo.”
