Duterte slams Vera Files’ Ellen Tordesillas: She’s every inch a prostitute
By Prince Golez
Talking to reporters after casting his vote for the midterm elections, President Rodrigo Duterte calls VERA Files President Ellen Tordesillas a “prostitute.”
Tordesilla’s name was included in two matrices linking the opposition, several journalists, and media organizations to a supposed ouster plot against President Rodrigo Duterte.
“Totoo ‘yung matrix. Totoo ‘yung matrix. Pati ‘yung Bikoy kita mo naman, pati ‘yung spectral analysis ng boses nila. Totoo talaga ‘yon. Si Tordesillas talagang totoong ano. She’s an every inch a prostitute,” the President said on Monday, referring to the hooded figure in the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” videos who alleged the Duterte family’s benefitted from the narcotics trade.
Tordesillas, for her part, said Duterte was “not in his right mind” and a “danger to the Filipino people.”
The Chief Executive resorts to “vulgarity” because he cannot present evidence on his “silly” matrix, the veteran journalist wrote on Twitter.
Duterte, meanwhile, said he is leaving it up to Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo to answer questions regarding the ‘Oust Duterte’ matrix.
“(Siya) na lang so that kung i-misquote siya, siya ‘yung madaldal eh. I get tired of answering questions which are stupid. And the one that would only make you…” he added.
Panelo earlier told the media to ask the President himself about the matrix of an ouster plot against him.
