It is time for him to heed his own advice, when it comes to attacking the Senate for uncovering corrupt practices in the government’s procurement of emergency medical supplies during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Contrary to what he or his advisers may think, he is scoring no points for digging up a two-decades- old allegation against Senator Richard Gordon, the chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon committee that is investigating the questionable purchases of pandemic supplies by the Procurement Service of the Department of Budget and Management (PS-DBM). He looked even worse when he said he would ask the Office of the Ombudsman to look into it—a threat to use government resources to go after his political enemies. He also came across as petty and petulant when he took cheap shots at Gordon’s heft and Senator Panfilo Lacson’s hairstyle. Finally, the President scored no points for loyalty when he admitted to appointing Lloyd Christopher Lao, a volunteer election lawyer during Mr. Duterte’s 2016 presidential campaign, to head the PS-DBM out of a sense of gratitude. It was Mr. Lao who later bought P8 billion worth of overpriced face masks, face shields and personal protective equipment (PPE) from a small startup, Pharmally Pharmaceuticals Corp., which was backed by the President’s friend and one-time economic adviser, Michael Yang, a Chinese businessman from Davao City.
