Robredo is a "Colossal Blunder" - Duterte

If Vice President Leni Robredo called the on going war on drugs of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte as a “massive failure” the latter is calling Robredo himself as a “colossal blunder.”

The President in a press conference with Malacanang reporters was reacting to the report recently made public by Robredo after her 18 day stint as co-chair of the inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD)Duterte said Robredo is “talking big’ but only won a small margin in the 2016 national elections.

“I hate to say this but how many voters are there in the Philippines? Just do away with the 200,000 plus she got as a majority over (Bongbong) Marcos. It was really a mistake. With a slim margin and you talk big,” Duterte said.

“For all of these years, she has done nothing. She’s a colossal blunder. Colossal blunder,” he stressed.

The Vice President using government data said the shabu supply and the drug money were only reduced by a measly 1 percent in the last three years.

One of her recommendation is to transfer the  chairmanship of ICAD from from the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency to the Dangerous Drugs Board, as the latter, according to her, has the capacity to lead the campaign from all facets.

Duterte’s reaction was straightforward, saying that the Vice President does not have the right to lecture him.

“Kung sakali lang maging Presidente siya gawin niya ‘yan. (She can do it if she becomes President) She does not lecture me. I do not have the slightest… as a lawyer lecturing on me, she should revisit her record, I suggest,” he said.
