10 Times Mocha Uson Deserved a Slow Clap

The former assistant secretary has a long list of...accomplishments.

(SPOT.ph) It wasn’t really a surprise when Mocha Uson was appointed assistant secretary under the Presidential Communications Operations Office, given her fervent and outspoken support for the administration. It was a position that she occupied for a year and nearly five months, and now that she's announced her resignation, she has a considerable list of accomplishments under her belt. Here are a few of them. 


- She honored Filipino soldiers in Marawi by posting a picture of Honduran police officers.

- She encouraged Filipinos to think creatively and come up with better, more useful ways to spend her monthly salary of P133,454

- She became an ambassador for the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival. 

- Her collaboration with controversial blogger Drew Olivar was a master class in how to tackle issues like federalism and sign language

- She questioned whether the widely documented and internationally lauded EDSA People Power in 1986 was the product of fake news. 


- She introduced the term "self-discrimination" into the public discourse.

- She refused to apologize for her attempt to draw parallels between President Rodrigo Duterte kissing a woman in South Korea and Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino being kissed by two women minutes before he was assassinated.

- She encouraged an onslaught of insults against Vice President Leni Robredo on radio.

- She coined the term “presstitutes” for mainstream news outlets.

- Even her boss, Martin Andanar, couldn't reprimand her

Not surprisingly, the former assistant secretary has said that she's "open to" running for a Senate seat. Let's hope she hires Drew Olivar to be her campaign manager.
