A screenshot of a Facebook (FB) post erroneously claims Vice President Leni Robredo slept in an airport lounge for five hours. The sleeping woman in the photo is actually her daughter.

On May 15 and 16, several FB pages published a screenshot of an erroneous post where a woman in pink can be seen sleeping with a caption that read: “Habang naghihintay ng flight papuntang US para umatend ng graduation ng kanyang anak na si Jilian ay natulog si VP Leni Robredo sa mga upuan sa airport ng 5 oras. (While waiting for their U.S. flight to attend her daughter Jillian’s graduation, VP Leni Robredo slept on the airport seats for 5 hours.)”

One of the posts bore the caption: “This is exactly the reason why you lost, and lost big time. Too much fakery. Over the top hypocrisy. As if naman ung naka-assign sa iyong PSG (being incumbent VP) eh papayag sa ganyang condition mo? As if walang VIP lounge ang airport para sa mga katulad mo? (As if your PSG detail, being the incumbent VP, will allow you to be in that condition? As if there’s no VIP lounge in the airport for people like you?)”

The person in the photo is actually Tricia Robredo, the vice president’s second daughter, sleeping during a 5-hour layover en route to New York. The vice president published the image in her Instagram story with the text tagging her daughter: “Parang galing duty lang (Just like coming off from duty) @jpgrobredo”
