Does this look pregnant to you?
Government official Mocha Uson showed off her banging body in a video uploaded today, in a move to refute allegations that she was impregnated by another Duterte loyalist, fellow actor Robin Padilla.
What’s more, she even blamed supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo for allegedly spreading the rumor. However, she failed to provide any proof to back up her claim.
Uson said there was no truth to the rumor and described Robin as “very kind.”
“I feel bad towards Robin and Mariel [Padilla]. I’m quite sure that those who have spread [that rumor] are people who are bitter towards our government,” she said in English and Filipino in an online statement.
She said she and Robin are being slandered because they are loyal supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte.
“It’s because their candidate, Robredo, isn’t doing very well in [presidential] surveys that’s why they’re coming up with these rumors,” the director of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration said.
Uson even included a workout video that showed her lifting weights while wearing a sports bra and joggers. Her tummy was noticeably flat. It’s unclear when the video was taken.
It was just last night when Robin’s wife, Mariel Padilla, called out those who have been spreading the rumor. She said that her husband has been grieving over the death of his brother Royette Padilla and that there was a time to act like “a**holes” but “now is not that time.”
Uson, who now appears to be the victim of false reports, has been caught several times in the past for spreading fake news that denigrated opposition figures and the local media. She has been known for her unwavering support for Duterte whom she calls Tatay Digong (“Father Digong”).
Robin, an action star, has been equally supportive of the government. In 2018, he even threatened to arrest then-Senator Antonio Trillanes, a leading critic of the administration, after the lawmaker’s amnesty was revoked by the government.
