Ogie Diaz refused to let staunch Leni Robredo critic Mark Lopez make accusations about the former vice president.
Robredo left the Philippines to serve as a Hauser Leader at Harvard Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership, a feat her supporters are proud of.
However, Lopez, who attacked Robredo since the Duterte administration won’t stop attempting to ruin the now-ordinary citizen’s reputation.
In a tweet, Lopez claimed that Robredo went to Harvard only to talk bad about the Philippines.
“Grabe! Nagpunta ng Harvard para SIRAAN ang sariling BANSA. Napakawalanghiya mo talaga Madumb!” he said on October 14.

However, Diaz wouldn’t let Lopez slide. He called him shameless.
May nabasa ako, mas walanghiya daw po kayo. True po ba? pic.twitter.com/ZaieF7JaH8

When Robredo was named one of the Hauser Leaders, Lopez said the achievement wouldn’t hide the fact that she has “weak leadership.”
“No amount of Harvard deodorizing can ever mask the stupidity and weak leadership skills of Madumb. Kahit gawin nyo pang dean yan, you are depriving students of real education kung yan lang boba yan ang magtuturo,” he said.
Diaz also replied, saying that Lopez has a “sad life” and his coping mechanism is to attack Robredo.
“…malungkot ang buhay niya. At si Leni ang nagpapasaya sa kanya. At least nakatulong sa kanyang mental health si Mama Leni.”
Lopez came back and asked why Diaz would even bother a “nobody” like himself.
“The saddest life actually is yours Mister Diaz. Why? Imagine super sikat ka pero nag effort ka pa sa tweet ko even if I am a nobody? Dahil lang sa barya na iaabot sa iyo ng mga handler ni Madumb? How pathetic di ba?” he tweeted.
Robredo’s critics are fond of calling her “madumb,” a term used to mock her intelligence.
She addressed them in a video, though.
“Ano yung gagawin ko sa Harvard? Hinihintay ko nga kung ano yung sasabihin ng trolls eh,” she said.
“Excited ako kung ano yung… kasi ‘di ba yung pinaka-narrative na… pinaka-narrative nila sa akin bobo ako, ‘di ba? Bobo ako, lutang, Madumb… yun yung sabi nila. Pero sabi ko nga, talaga ang Diyos, yung Diyos talaga marunong. Kasi… yung mga dumarating sa akin, parang hindi ko naman sino-solicit.
“Pero nung nagsabi nang nagsabi ng ‘Madumb’ binigyan ako ng Ateneo ng honorary degree. Tingin ninyo ang Ateneo magbibigay sa isang lutang at bobo? Di naman siguro… Tapos ngayon, hindi lang Ateneo kundi Harvard.
