VALERIE AND THE PRESIDENT

SUNDAY. As Northern Mindanao reels from one of the worst flooding in decades, people on Twitter curiously asked the whereabouts of President Aquino. And then at around 10PM, actress/TV host Valerie Concepcion tweeted this:

Reacting to the RTd tweet, Usec. Manolo Quezon of the Communications Group said the PSG event happened last December 10. But when told that Valerie’s tweet was fresh, he replied: “confirming.”

Asked if the ‘PNoy’ she tweeted about was ‘PNoy the President,’ Valerie said:

When the President started drawing flak because of her tweet, Valerie posted:
I just want to clarify that I was invited to perform at Malacañang’s Christmas Party for their employees with their husbands/wives and kids. Yes, the president attended the gathering. I do not see anything wrong with that since its his obligation and responsibility being the head of Malacañang to be present and show his support for his hardworking employees and their respective families. But I believe that it doesn’t mean that the president is not thinking of ways to help our kababayan(s) in Mindanao. It doesn’t mean that the president is disregarding the plight of our fellow Filipinos. Let’s not be too quick to judge. But if I, in any way, offended you guys and sounded insensitive, I am very sorry. It wasn’t my intention to do either. I can’t imagine how difficult life is for the people affected in Mindanao and how difficult it is to be the president of the Philippines at this moment. Once again, I am very sorry for all those people I have offended. May God bless us all.

Oh dear, you didn’t have to apologize on behalf of the President. Unless you wanted to be part of his Communications Group. No one was blaming you after all. No harm done Valerie. You did great.

  3. Todays PR lesson courtesy of m quezon

    Mlq3 tweet this morning reads: “Good morning. Checked and
    indeed there was a PSG party last night: it
    couldn’t be cancelled (unlike annual Cabinet
    Xmas Party scheduled for tonight, which was
    cancelled yesterday afternoon, so funds could
    go to relief). President dropped by for 30
    minutes to be with those who saved his life.”

    Note – “there was a PSG party” – what, and no-one told you, or invited you, and you a member of the comms group. Are you that uninformed or unpopular. Mmmm
    Note – “30 minutes”! Vconc performed for more than that! Mmmm
    Note – sympathy sale – “saved his life” – stop, you are making me cry!
    Note – ‘ donate funds’. Money talks. How generous. How true?
    Note – “couldnt be cancelled” – unlike ASEAN meetings! – even with all those awesome presidential powers

    Pr lessons – when you are in a hole, dont dig yourself in deeper
    – notice your colleagues are keeping out of it and hanging you out to dry – alone
    – get training for a job or you mess up

    upset that from now on I can’t believe you”

  4. Na namannn!!! wag na tayong magexpect na this father of the nation kuno will feel and act like one. Una, never naman siyang naging tatay,at ang tatay din niya ay mukhang absentee father din.Hipocrite, kunyari concerned sa mga mahihirap,but when he is needed he does a houdini.Even if he can delegate,as the usual alibi goes,ang kawalan ng pagdamay sa panahon ng trahedya sa marami nating kababayan nakikita that he is bereft of sensitivity and delicadeza. Spoiled brat!!!

    1. Anoooo? Ang tatay ni P-Noy “mukhang absentee father din”? Saan mo naman napulot and balita na yan? Pwera na lang kung ituturing mong “absentee father” si Ninoy sa loob ng pitong taon at pitong buwan na sya’y pinakulong ni Marcos. Siguro alagad ka ni Marcos, ‘no?
