QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Remember that time when Kris Aquino said on a live broadcast that she and President Rodrigo Duterte were now “friends?” (Best friends na kami ni PRRD!). It was over some issues Aquino had with then PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson.
Now, Uson is in a similar situation with Vice President Leni Robredo. In a recent post, Uson criticized Robredo over what she said were the VP’s photo ops during the distribution of relief goods to those affected by the Taal Volcano eruption. Getting back at her, Robredo said Uson was a bearer of “fake news” while receiving taxpayer money in salary as Deputy Executive Director of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).
But in the spirit of national unity and reconciliation, and in solidarity with the victims of this latest tragedy in the country, Robredo has offered an Olive branch to Uson.
”Mocha and I are now BFFs (Best Friends Forever). To prove her sincerity, the Vice President directed her staff to procure Hansel brand cookies — get this — Mocha flavor, as part of the relief goods to be disributed to the calamity victims.
All’s well that ends well!
