Abella Says Duterte Was Only Joking When He Said Mocha Was Bright

Mocha Uson / Rodrigo Duterte

Manila – Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella answered several questions from the press about President Duterte’s praising of Mocha Uson, saying he was only joking as usual.

“Of course he was only joking,” said Abella. “We all know Mocha doesn’t and can’t express intelligent arguments in politics. We’ve all seen how she actually believes and even disseminates fabricated news articles. It’s only a matter of utang na loob for the President. It is also to deter any more criticisms about her inclusion in the official trips of the President.”
