Kris Aquino offered her precious influence to help Special Assistant to President Christopher Bong Go if he decided to run for the senatorial elections in 2019.
Aquino sent a message to Bong Go to complain what Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson uploaded featuring her father Ninoy Aquino being kissed by her supporters before being assassinated.

When Go arrived in the Philippines, he was welcomed by the text messages from Kris Aquino.
““Bong, this is Kris Aquino. I am personally reaching out. We have been friends and my heart wants to believe you still have a soft spot for me. I will understand if you snub me because sino naman ako, pero sinaktan talaga ang puso ko sa ginawa ni Mocha.” Kris said in his text message to Bong Go.
“Alam mo, never ako nagsalita o nag-post ng anything against PRRD (President Rodrigo Roa Duterte) dahil marunong ako rumespeto. Sana huwag lang ang mom at dad ko dahil nananahimik na sila sa langit.” she added.
Aquino also told Go that she’s ready to campaign for the President’s right hand because she believes in his personality.
“Alam mo I will even campaign for you because I believe in you, but why leave the President? Why leave Malacañang?”
However, Aquino also gave the warning to Go that if he runs for public office, some people might use it as an opportunity to destroy the President.
She believes that its possible that a traitor might occupy the post of Go that he’s going to leave once won the senatorial elections.
“Why leave Malacañang? Baka ahas lang ang gustong kunin ang posisyon mo.” she said.
In response, Go insisted that he’s still not a candidate for the senatorial elections in 2019.
“Please ma’am hindi naman po ako kandidato, so maraming salamat sa tiwala mo at sa paniniwala mo sa amin ni Pangulong Duterte.” Go said during the press briefing at the Presidential Guest House in Malacañang.
Go also apologized to Kris for the incident.
The assistant of the President also said that he doesn’t have any authority to give punishment or sanctions for what Mocha Uson did.
He also shared to the press that he told Mocha to avoid adding more fuel to the fire.
“Kung pwede ay wag na natin palakihin and she agreed naman na mag apologize nalang,” Go while quoting what he said to Mocha.
However, several hours after the press briefing, Mocha Uson didn’t apologize and contradicted what Go said to the media.
“This is not about Kris Aquino, tungkol ito sa paglalagay malisya sa isang halik. Itinumbas lang sa gawain ng ibang lider tulad ng tatay niya. Ms. Aquino this is not about you,” Mocha Uson said in her live video.
“With all due respect to everyone involved, I decline to apologize for the truth,” she said in another post.
Kris Aquino is saddened by the latest statement of Mocha, saying that his boss already apologize, but she still refused to do the same.
