Calida viewed Robredo’s statements as a “treasonous act” that “will reap the people’s wrath and contempt” and asserted that she “should be rightfully condemned for slandering and selling out our country and our leaders before the UN.”
In the wake of these controversies, Calida readily offers help to Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez should an impeachment case against the VP be pursued.
"Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas itong mataas na opisyal ng gobyerno, hindi ko lang pwedeng tawaging VP dahil hindi pa tayo tiyak kung talagang nanalo ito...ay nagpadala ng video clip doon sa United Nations at walang pakundangan na sinira ang bansang Pilipinas," Alvarez said in an interview on dzBB.
"Saan ka naman nakakita ng ganoon? Kumbaga ay ipinahamak niya doon ang bansang Pilipinas sa iba't ibang anggulo, ekonomiya, tourism, at iba pa," he added.
As part of the Yellows, Robredo is accused of being part of the destabilization efforts to depose President Rodrigo Duterte.
Calida views Robredo’s actions as debasing the Office of the Vice President by “betraying the trust of our people” which has also induced Robredo as joining the “ranks of the destabilizers.”
Robedo has consistently denied her involvement in any destabilization efforts against the President.
