Duterte has surpassed his idol Marcos as most murderous, corrupt president ever – Leila
Senator Leila de Lima claimed that President Rodrigo Duterte has also aready outshined his idol, the late President Ferdinand Marcos, as the worst Philippine president ever.
De Lima said Duterte was “hallucinating” when he declared that no othe rprsident has achieved what he has done in two years in office and that his presidency would be a tough act to follow.
As if his own presidency is the benchmark of good governance, Duterte again belittles the capability of VP Leni Robredo to succeed him as President. He said he would only resign if Bongbong Marcos or Sen. Chiz Escudero would succeed him, and that even a junta is preferable over VP Leni.
Aside from revealing once again his disdain of the Constitution and the rule of law,
“Well, it is not. It is one of the worst, if not the worst presidency ever. After him, Marcos might even be surpassed as the most murderous and corrupt president the country ever had,” said de Lima in a statement.
De ima made the reaction after Duterte belittled Vice President Leni Robredo’s capacity to take over as president as he claimed the country was better off having a junta or losing vice presidential bets Bongbong Marcos and Chiz Escudero as his successor.
De Lima said the country does not need a rocket scientist as a president to top Duterte.
“After Duterte, it is not really all that hard to be a better President. The real challenge to the next President is fixing all that Duterte has broken, which is almost everything that was good about this country and its people. But how is it so difficult to perform better than Duterte? I imagine that it won’t be,” she said.
Upon succession to the presidency, de Lima said Robredo would:
1) End all the killings and bring the killers to justice
2) Stop the policy of mendicancy to China and once again fight for our Spratlys territories through the maximum use of the landmark ruling of the UNCLOS Arbitral Tribunal
3) Restore decency and civility in our damaged society
4) Bring back respect to the country in the international community, simply by not being obnoxious or offensive to the world like Duterte was
5) Put an end to the culture of impunity in government where we see Duterte appointees and allies robbing the people in broad daylight while at the same time having the gall to be self-righteous about it.
