ZAGREB, July 29, 2020 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic has never tweeted something against President Zoran Milanovic, the government said on Wednesday, adding that after checking Plenkovic’s twitter account they concluded that Milanovic was either lying or hallucinating.
“Given the numerous media queries about which late-night tweet the president meant, we checked the prime minister’s tweets in the past period to check if anything was tweeted late at night that was aimed against the president. The only thing we can conclude is that the president is either lying or hallucinating,” the government said.
He is certainly very bored so he is making things up, it added.
Milanovic today dismissed Plenkovic’s claims that he was bored, saying this was said on Plenkovic’s Twitter account.
Milanovic said he did not think that Plenkovic wrote that himself but someone in his office late at night. “I can’t believe that Plenkovic would write such nonsense,” he said, without specifying which tweet he meant.
Plenkovic told reporters today it seemed to him the president “is a little bored.” He was commenting on Milanovic’s repeated claims that the national COVID response team was unconstitutional, that parliament was above it and that the “team is actually nothing.”
