VIENTIANE, Laos — Famous blogger and vocal Duterte supporter Mocha Uson has managed to score a lengthy and exclusive meeting with U.S. president Barack Obama on the second day of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.
“I’m very honored to have met and talked to the president of the United States,” Uson wrote on her Facebook page. “Mabuti nalang at nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na ipaliwanag kay Ginoong Obama ang ibig sabihin na controbersyal na statement ni Pangulong Duterte.“
First on her agenda is to explain in detail that President Rodrigo Duterte did not necessarily call Obama a “son of a whore”.
“On behalf of the 16 million Duterte Die-hard Supporters (DDS), ipinaliwanag ko po na ganun lang talaga magsalita ang ating mahal na pangulo,” she added. “Nagdala din po tayo ng printout nung artikulo na isinulat ng Liberal America, kung saan nakasaad dito ang tunay na ibig sabihin ni Pangulong Duterte.“
Other topics discussed were the open letter written by Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, the conspiracy theory about the recent Davao bombing, the “backdoor attack” of the “bayarang yellow media“, as well as allaying fears that Duterte was not really endorsing cannibalism.
“Sinabi ko naman na hindi basta-basta kumakain ng tao si Tatay Digong,” assured Uson. “Tanging mga drug adik, pusher, terorista, kontra-Duterte o babaeng nagngangalang Leila De Lima lang ang kinakain nya.”
She added, “Mapili sya sa foods contrary sa mga balita.“
According to Uson, Obama was noticeably quiet and fidgety, as if feeling insecure in front of her.
“Natakot siguro sya kasi alam nila na malapit tayo sa Mahal na Pangulo,” Uson said. “Alam nilang hindi dapat puwedeng baliwalain ang 16 milyon na Pilipinong bumoto kay Pangulong Duterte. Isama na rin natin ang napakataas na satisfaction rating ng administrasyong Duterte.“
Before ending their meeting, Uson reminded Obama that it will never ever be Rodrigo Duterte’s fault if his or the Philippines’ image get tarnished on the international scene.
“Kasalanan po ito palagi ng media, na kahit magmukhang sirang plaka na tayo eh, wala nang ginawa kundi sirain ang imahe ng ating minamahal na pangulo,” she said.
Barack Obama apparently just nodded and shook her hand.
