MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The big news yesterday was the appointment of Duterte supporter and blogger Mocha Uson as Assistant Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO). Most Duterte supporters were elated over the appointment while the Yellowtards were fuming.
In announcing Uson’s appointment, Malacañang said that by accepting the new position, Uson is deemed to have resigned her position as member of the Movie and Television Ratings and Classification Board (MTRCB), creating a vacancy in the self-censorship body.
Upon learning of the new PCOO appointment, actress Agot Isidro sent a letter to Malacañang expressing her desire to be appointed to replace Uson on the MTRCB.
It will be recalled that Isidro took to her social media account to label Duterte a “psychopath,” to which the president responded that the actress had the constitutional right to free speech.
In her letter to Malacañang, Isidro said that she is well qualified for the position and that she will make for an unbiased member of the MTRCB.
