The apology came after Duterte said that Robredo’s name wasn’t listed in the beginning of his speech in which he gave for the graduating 2017 class of the PMA Salaknib. According to Duterte, his speechwriter did not include the vice president’s name among the government officials who were present in the graduation.
Duterte then went on to apologize to Robredo and duly acknowledged her presence. The president also jokingly said that he would beat up his speechwriter for not including Robredo which promptly made everyone laugh as well as Robredo herself.
