Mocha Uson criticized actress Toni Gonzaga after the latter declared that presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. would be “coming home” to Malacañang Palace.

Gonzaga, who has been actively campaigning for Marcos, gave the remark during the presidential candidate’s rally in Cebu last Monday, April 18.

The pro-administration blogger and Mothers for Change party-list nominee reminded Gonzaga that Malacañang is only an office and not owned by a specific family or individual, as seen on her TikTok page yesterday, April 20. The two previously worked together in the 2013 film “Four Sisters and a Wedding.”

“Alam mo, ma’am, hindi maganda ‘yang sinasabi ninyo. Napaghahalataang wala po kayong alam sa public service,” she said, noting that President Rodrigo Duterte himself only referred to Malacañang as his office.

Ang Malacañang ay opisina hindi tahanan

Uson then alluded to the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos Sr. that marked a period of government corruption and human rights violations in the country until he was ousted through the peaceful 1986 EDSA revolution.

“Para sabihin mo na babalik na sa kaniyang tahanan sa Malacañang si Marcos ay parang sinabi mo na rin po na diktador ang kanilang pamilya na ginawa na talagang tahanan ang Malacañang noon. Umalis lang saglit at ngayon ay babalik muli para angkinin ito,” Uson told Gonzaga.

(To say that Marcos will return to his home in Malacañang is like saying that his family was a dictator who made Malacañang their home in the past. They left for a while and are now returning to claim it.)

“Paalala lang po: Ang Malacañang ay pag-aari ng bawat Pilipino,” she added. “Ito ay opisina lamang ng public servant ng ating bayan.”

(Just a reminder: Malacañang belongs to every Filipino. It is only the office of our country’s public servant.)  /ra
