Kris Aquino Defends Ninoy's Memory Against Mocha Uson—Happy Father's Day, Everyone!

Teddy Locsin, Jr. also brought it.

It all started with a post that PCOO Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson shared online. It looked innocent, certainly. It even had the Care Bears on it. But, as these things go, it turned ugly really quickly.

The roughly spliced video showed a schizoprenic montage of images that included footage of former President Corazon Aquino's state funeral, screencaps of various news articles and quotes from the Asec herself, some song lyrics, even. Taylor Swift was in there, too.

The point to this strange exercise in video editing seems to focus on the archival footage of Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino, Jr. being kissed by two women as he was seated in a plane, juxtaposed with that controversial footage of President Duterte kissing a Filipina in South Korea. "Masagwa daw ito??? Pero eto hindi???" the video asked. 

Let's face it. This isn't even the most incendiary thing that anyone's seen from thereabouts. But it got the attention of Kris Aquino, and—well, let's just say she's not called the "Queen of All Media" for Nothing.

The impassioned thread spurred the Philippine Ambassador to the United Nations Teddy Locsin, Jr.—who, one may recall, used to part of President Cory Aquino's Cabinet—to rise to the occasion:


UPDATE: This definition of "EPIC".

You'd think the controversial Asec would know better than to taunt a woman mourning a father who'd been gunned down, considering that she also bears the same scars. Never underestimate the ferocity of a loyal daughter.
