Johnoy Danao may have a different sentiment from Bianca Gonzalez who praised President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s first State of the Nation Address (SONA), as the musician pointed out that the President was just “reading a speech.”

Gonzalez, a known supporter of former Vice President Leni Robredo who also vied for the presidency, earlier commended Marcos’ SONA, through the TV host’s Twitter page yesterday, July 25.


“That was a good SONA for PBBM. Here’s hoping this admin delivers on the promises, para sa Bayan (for the country),” she said. “I may have voted for Leni Robredo and I still believe the Marcos family needs to be accountable for the stolen wealth and the ML (Martial Law) human rights abuses, but BBM is our duly elected President and I felt his SONA was good. Kung successful ang admin, success din ng Bayan (If the administration is successful, it is also the country’s success).”

Danao, who also supported Robredo, seemingly contradicted Gonzalez’s take on the matter while putting into question her use of the phrase “para sa bayan,” via his Twitter page today, July 26.

“He was just reading a speech. Just like what he was doing during the campaign, puro kasinungalingan (all lies),” he stated. “Para sa bayan? [Please.] Magbayad ng utang, pakulong ang nanay, panagutin sa mga ninakaw ng pamilya sa kaban ng bayan. Mind you, fake news/troll farm ginamit ng ‘duly elected.'”

([He should] pay his debts, put his mother in jail, get accounted for what their family stole from the country. Mind you, fake news [or] troll farm were what the “duly elected” used [during the election].)

Gonzalez then clarified that her compliment was just directed to Marcos’ speech, and that she is still firm on fighting for good governance.

The admin has yet to put in the work to deliver. Hindi nag-iba ang paninindigan ko dahil lang sa isang speech,” she responded. “#NeverForget pa rin ang stand ko, kailangan managot sa mga nagawa.”

(The admin has yet to put in the work to deliver. My principles are not changed with just one speech. My stand remains that they should be accounted for what they did [and that we should never forget].)

“Salamat din sa pagpoint out ng ‘duly elected.’ Will be more mindful sa pagpili ng terms,” Gonzalez addressed Danao. “Laban pa rin for good governance ito, Sir.”

(Thank you also for pointing out the term “duly elected.” [I] will be more mindful in choosing the terms [I will use]. This is still a fight for good governance, sir.)

During his SONA, Marcos discussed the country’s economic targets, food security issue, infrastructure developments and the pandemic situation, among others. Some analysts have pointed out that Marcos did not tackle the issues of human rights violations and graft and corruption. He ended his address, which lasted for over an hour, by stating that “The state of the nation is sound.” JB
