The Facts: There are no records of VP Robredo saying anything bad about the Barzaga Family. VP Leni has never been known to curse on record.
In fact, Cavite 4th District Representative and president of the National Unity Party (NUP), Elpidio Barzaga, and his wife, Mayor Jenny Barzaga of Dasmariñas, have shown support for Leni Robredo’s presidential bid.
Elpidio Barzaga went against his own party to endorse the Vice President in her campaign for the presidency. (https://www.google.com/…/nup-president-barzaga…/amp)
