Presidential Communications Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson urged the supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte to unite and not to be affected by the recent issues which she’s involved.
In her post, she clarified that there’s no bad blood between her and Special Assistant to President Christopher “Bong” Go.
“Gusto ko lamang po sabihin at linawin sa lahat- wala pong hidwaan sa aming dalawa ni SAP Bong Go. Mahal at suportado ko po siya.” Uson said in her Facebook post.
She urged the Filipino people to move on, however she claimed that the people are only trying to manipulate by a “drama queen”.
Mocha is apparently referring to Kris Aquino who criticized her because of the video that she uploaded featuring Ninoy Aquino being kissed by her supporters before being assassinated in 1983.
She believed that Aquino only wanted to divide the supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte for her personal gains.
“Move on na po tayo. Lahat tayo ay niloloko ng isang drama queen. Sinubukan tayong i-divide para sa sarili niyang pang- interes. SOLID TAYO! Walang bibitaw!”.
Several personalities and bloggers cheered Mocha Uson and Christopher Bong Go.
They also praised Uson for her decision to end all the issue and speculations by some supporters.
“Every KRISis presents both a danger and opportunity. After this, both Mocha and BG will become stronger. World peace and loving kindness! Thank you Panty!” Sass Rogando Sasot told Uson.
“Walang KRISis ang makakatibag satin acheh! Solid!” Uson responds.
“Two people who really love the country, support the President and are passionate about their work. GOD Bless You SAP Bong and Asec Mocha!” DFA Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano told Mocha.
“Ang pakiusap ko lang naman sa mga kaDDS natin na MAGKAISA tayo!!! Wag naman tayong magwatak watak!! Wag tayong magaway away dahil lang sa maliit na bagay. Nagkakaroon ng division dahil pinasok tayo ng baliw na babae. YUN ANG KALABAN natin. HINDI SI MOCHA AT HINDI RIN SI BONG GO!!” Blogger Drew Oliver remarked.
The apology sent by Bong Go to Kris Aquino during the press conference in Malacanang on Wednesday gave speculations that the assistant of the President threw Mocha under the bus.
However, it was cleared that President Rodrigo Duterte is the one who ordered Go to apologize, he also asked Mocha to say sorry, however, the communications assistant secretary invoked her right to freedom of expression.
“Yes totoo yun, I said to Bong tell the other one (Mocha) for the incident because she works for me sa Malacañan. I asked Mocha to apologize to Kris, but there’s a verbal tussle there. She invoked freedom of speech.” Duterte said yesterday.
