Fox News anchor Greta van Susteren, called out the Philippines during her “Off the Record” broadcast – dubbing the nation “The Lamest Country of the Day.”
Her story involved the likes of a Filipino-American friend who was victimised at Manila’s NAIA airport in the “laglag bala” extortion scheme.
Susteren said “This scam is all part of a plot to extort money out of the international traveller.”
She also said her information indicated that officials “plant live ammunition in luggage and then bust international travellers for having bullets, even holding some passengers for days, telling them they can pay a fine or sit in the slammer facing charges.”
She went on to lambaste the Philippines by saying “I know what you’re thinking – what is wrong with some people? My answer, I just don’t know.”
Susteren then added her thoughts by saying the Philippines is “the lamest country of the day.”
