According to Mariel De Leon, she loves her country so it breaks her heart to know someone like her (Mocha) got a position in the government. This is the reply of Mariel de Leon to one of her fans who asked about her views with Mocha’s appointment.
Mariel De Leon also noted that there are so many other unbiased, educated and respected people who deserved her place. Due to the statement of De Leon, another popular social media personality Sass Rogando Sasot came to the rescue and defended Mocha Uson’s appointment.
According to Sasot, loyalty is important in an appointed position. These appointees, like Mocha, serve at the pleasure of the president. As such, they should have a particular bias — and that is, they must support the reforms an policies of the administration.
Here’s the Complete Statement of Sass Rogando Sasot:
Ms Mariel de Leon:
1. Loyalty is important in an appointed position. These appointees,
like Mocha, serve at the pleasure of the president. As such, they should
have a particular bias — and that is, they must support the reforms
and policies of the administration.
Unlike you who lived a
pampered life, Mocha was exposed to the cruelties of this world at an
early age. Her father was a judge who handled
cases involving big criminal syndicates: he got assasinated. I believe
you were almost at the same age when that happened. I mean, while Mocha
at your age had to face that kind of life, your greatest challenge in
life is to win a crown for a beauty contest. Classic case of depth of
life experience vs vapidness.
2. Mocha got her diploma before
you got yours. FYI, she finished a medical degree and got into one of
the top med schools in the PH. I believe your degree is related to
3. What is respected and respectful during this
highly polarized moment in our political history is highly questionable.
I believe the people who Mocha helped through her blog would disagree
I was with Mocha in the second week of February. The
vendors outside the bar where her group performs love her. They
immediately ran to her and embraced her upon seeing her, like a long
Mocha can be very blunt in her FB especially if she feels passionate about the issue.
I’m not really sure if you know what the job of being a PCOO Asec on
Social Media entails. Well, Bb Pilipinas-International, it fundamentally
entails understanding and having an actual experience in community
engagement online. Now tell us, how is Mocha not qualified to do the
job? But before that: What made you qualified to gauge someone’s
qualification in that field?
