This Is Not a Drill: Mocha Uson Resigns

"Is this real life? Is this just fantasy?"

( News broke on Wednesday morning, October 3, that Assistant Communications Secretary Mocha Uson has resigned from her post. The performer-turned-public official announced this during the third regular session of the 17th Congress, which was holding a hearing on the proposed 2019 budget of the Presidential Communications Operations Office at the Senate Building in Pasay City.

Uson argues, according to a report by Paolo S. Romero of The Philippine Star, that some congressmen have been holding the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) budget hostage. She also announced that she is "open to" running for the Senate or the House of Representatives.

The former assistant secretary has often been hounded by controversy, especially for the (mis)information she habitually posted on her social media account Mocha Uson Blog—the latest being a questionable video on federalism. So it doesn't come as a surprise that people are already celebrating this bittersweet news.


Others, however, are looking forward to seeing her in the Senate.

Uson has yet to make a statement, which she'll probably do ASAP on Facebook.
