Columnist tells Trillanes: 'He has fallen into the trap of insanity'

Manila Standard Columnist Jojo Robles lashed out Senator Antonio Trillanes IV after the latter made anew accusation to pinned down President Rodrigo Duterte.


Trillanes, a staunch critic of Duterte, accused the Presidential son and son in-law Atty. Manases Carpio of corruption after the two were linked to the Customs smuggling issue.

Robles said that as a critic, he understand such sentiments on correcting the president if it was against their view. But he said Trillanes was not a good critic.

In Robles views, he cited why Trillanes always failed being a critic.

"Trillanes is about as good a critic as he is a coup plotter. He makes a lot of noise and threatens a lot of people, but in the end, he only knows how one way of doing things, which is why he keeps failing."

Also, as he quoted, "The problem with Trillanes is that he has fallen into the trap of insanity, as defined by no less than Albert Einstein."
INSANITY. I actually sympathize with Senator Antonio Trillanes, up to a point. But only up to a point.

Someone has to do the job of being in the opposition in a democracy, which, last I checked, we still are. Someone has to stand up to Malacanang and the majority in Congress, to point out what they are doing wrong, with a view to correcting them.

As someone who has made a living observing the government and criticizing it, I understand what Trillanes is doing and why it is necessary. What I don't understand is why Trillanes can't even be good at being a critic, despite his regular practice.

If I may hazard a comparison, Trillanes is about as good a critic as he is a coup plotter. He makes a lot of noise and threatens a lot of people, but in the end, he only knows how one way of doing things, which is why he keeps failing.

The problem with Trillanes is that he has fallen into the trap of insanity, as defined by no less than Albert Einstein.

“The definition of insanity,” according to the quote attributed to the man hailed as one of the greatest minds of the previous century, “is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”
Way back 2015, during the campaign election, Trillanes continuously attacking President Duterte. From accusing Duterte of his alleged undeclared wealth up until he became the president. Trillanes was making a way to bring down Duterte.

In the column of Robles, he said, "From the very beginning of his positioning as the arch-critic of President Rodrigo Duterte, Trillanes has always used the same modus operandi: He will pounce on anything that will, no matter how remotely, link Duterte, his administration or even his kin, to scandal—but he never produces anything approaching proof or even reliable witnesses not named Matobato."

"I think Trillanes is still stuck in the past, specifically his one “successful” use of his strategy of bullying and shaming without proving anything."
