ORTIGOZA: Don’t cry Leila, you power play vs. Duterte
In my recent radio program, some listeners and viewers at social media commented that President Rodrigo Duterte’s scathing speech recently at a police anniversary was misogynistic.
Misogynist is a person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.
For me the vitriol of the president against Senator Leila de Lima was above board.
For instance, how could his driver-bodyguard Ronnie Palisoc Dayan, explain the white and orange mansions he built in Barangay Galarin in Urbiztondo, Pangasinan where de Lima occasionally visit?
Were those monies used by the mascular driver Dayan, as told by my fellow anchorwoman Audrey, taken from the jailed drug lords who cooked illegal drugs shabu at the national penitentiary in Muntinlupa especially when De Lima was then the Justice Secretary of the country?
A justice secretary in the Philippines not only supervises the National Bureau of Investigation but all jails under the Bureau of Jail, Management & Penology.
Geez man, very powerful position!
De Lima and her supporters and sympathizers should not cry foul to the “bully” actuation of the president.
In case the sex video of de Lima and a guy proves to be authentic, the accusation of the president that the paramour was the bagman of De Lima, the senator should not only be sued but condemned for her hypocrisy.
In case the Senate Justice Committee she chairs succeeds in investigating and exposing police officials led by Philippine National Police’s Chief Director General Ronald dela Rosa on the spate of killings of narcotic personalities, she still should be ashamed of herself because what she does in finding fault with the Duterte Administration in abetting the killings is sheer hypocrisy.
She cried foul about the vitriol from Duterte and the alleged demolition jobs against her by the president’s supporters at the traditional and social media, well it’s just part of the territory.
“Nag pa power po kasi kayo maam.”
She is bent to expose the blood on the hands of Duterte where the investigation starts at the August Chamber on Monday, she expects consequences of her crusade where Malacanang started exposing her alleged shenanigans.
That’s brinkmanship, my Dear Procopio!
The Tagalog has the saying: “Huwag ka nambabato ng ibang bahay kung bahay mo ay lata,” since a tin made house would have a hard sound if somebody retaliated by throwing a stone, too.
