P********! Mocha goes ballistic over report saying she was fired
By Xave Gregorio
Former Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson, who has been accused of peddling false information on social media, called a report which said that President Rodrigo Duterte fired her from her post “fake news.”
“Ang tagal kong nagpigil, pero mga p********** ganyang paninira sa akin, ‘wag namang ganun. Laban din tayo,” Uson said when asked about the Inquirer.net story Monday (October 8).
Uson said the article was written to malign her in anticipation of her candidacy for a congressional seat in the May 2019 polls.
“Bwisit na bwisit na ako. Sobra na ‘yung paninira. Masiyado namang threatened yata. ‘Si Mocha tatakbo bang senador? Si Mocha tatakbo bang congresswoman?’ Masiyado na ‘yung paninira sa akin na lantarang pekeng balita na sasabihin na ganoon,” she said.
She said she has “proof” that she resigned and was not fired from her post, but only cited her conversation with Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go when asked for proof.
“Nandiyan na. Resignation lahat. Pag-uusap namin ni Sir Bong. In fact, galit na galit si Sir Bong dahil diyan sa inilabas na paninira, fake news na walang katotohanan,” she said.
Uson resigned last week supposedly to allow the proposed 2019 budget of the Presidential Communications and Operations Office to move in Congress, which then faced a block in the lower house over the insistence of some lawmakers to interpellate the budget in her presence.
Prior to this, she has been criticized for being featured in videos where her fellow blogger Drew Olivar performed a lewd song-and-dance number on federalism and mocked sign language.
