MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – After making a 180-degree turn from throwing hollow blocks to throwing pan de sal at Duterte critics, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque once again made a complete turn-around.
This time, he’s back at threatening to throw hollow blocks — at Rappler’s Maria Ressa.
Roque made the threat after learning of a speech made by Ressa during the Awards Dinner sponsored by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) held in Washington, D.C.
In a speech accepting one of the Democracy Awards handed out by NDI, Ressa told her audience that Rappler’s coverage of Duterte’s campaign helped him get elected.
”What total bull,” Roque said. “I am ready to throw the first hollow block at Ressa upon her return from the U.S. for spreading lies and disinformation.”
Let the games begin!
