President Rodrigo Duterte is standing by his choice to nominate [email protected] performer and blogger Mocha Uson as Communications Assistant Secretary regardless of criticism that she’s unqualified for the post.

A video posted by Uson Friday (May 12) confirmed them speaking at a gathering in Hong Kong together with different members of the all-female dance group Mocha Girls.

“Inggit lang yan! Inggit lang sila na ikaw dumating doon,” Duterte instructed Uson.

He then recalled what he instructed the media earlier than flying to Cambodia earlier this week, that he has to pay a debt of gratitude to Uson since she campaigned for him within the May 2016 elections.

“At tsaka sinabi ko, ‘May utang na loob ako.’ What’s wrong in paying?” he remarked.

“Tutal ako naman ang may-ari ng Malacañang ngayon,” Duterte added.

Critics have accused Uson of utilizing her Facebook web page– which has over 5 million followers– to unfold faux information and assault these perceived to be opponents of the administration.
