Bong Go apologized to Kris Aquino for Mocha Uson ‘incident': Kris Aquino on Wednesday thanked Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go for apologizing for an “incident” that prompted her to publicly castigate Communications Assistant Secretary Margaux Uson on social media.
The youngest daughter of former president Corazon Aquino and former senator Benigno Aquino Jr. earlier went live on Facebook and Instagram to call out Uson for disrespecting the late Aquino couple in a bid to defend President Rodrigo Duterte.
Aquino said she reached out to Go after posting her lengthy video tirade against Uson, and thanked Duterte's long-time aide for replying to her messages and “believing in the power of true and honest communication.”
“Thank you for taking my feelings as a daughter into consideration & showing me EMPATHY,” Aquino said in an Instagram post.
“I am most grateful for a man as powerful as you are now for texting & Vibering me the words ‘we are sorry for the incident,'” she said.
Aquino ended her post by assuring Go that he has her “sincerest gratitude.”
“You have my sincere gratitude. We all have 1 goal, a nation we can be proud of, and the best possible prosperous lives for all Filipinos,” Aquino said.
“I love our country as much as our President does. I pray for #PEACE & mutual #respect for all of us,” she said.
Uson on Sunday posted a video of the late Sen. Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr. receiving a kiss from 2 women on board a plane before he was assassinated in 1983 during the Marcos dictatorship.
Uson posted the video after Duterte drew flak for asking a Filipina to kiss him on stage during his 3-day official visit in South Korea.
