Communications Secretary Martin Andanar has come to the defense of sexy performer and blogger Mocha Uson amid the flak she has garnered over her appointment to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

In an interview with Karen Davila on ANC’s “Headstart” Tuesday (Jan. 10), Andanar said Uson’s appointment was President Rodrigo Duterte’s prerogative.

While Andanar admitted he was unsure as to who recommended the influential blogger to the post, he said “the President saw wisdom in appointing her.”

“I believe that she is qualified and the President has the confidence and trust in her,” he said.

The Palace official noted that not only is Uson a vocal supporter of Duterte, but she also boasts of a college degree.

Uson, whose Facebook page counts 4.5 million followers, has vowed to block the showing of “soft porn” on television.
