Kris lashes back at basher, says she may consider running for office

The Queen of All Media, Kris Aquino fired back at one of her bashers who questioned the relief efforts she did at Marikina City wherein a lot of residents temporarily lost their homes to the flood.

Aquino posted the said relief operations on Instagram, but a netizen commented on it, questioned her efforts and called the relief operation a “publicity stunt.”

“The great example of being a humanitarian is Mother Teresa. Ano ‘yan publicity stunt? Kris Aquino, takbo ka na lang mayor ng QC. Post ka ng post ng pagtulong mo. Ano kaya yun. Gayahin mo na lang ang life ni Mother Teresa of Kolkata,” the netizen wrote.

Aquino quickly lambasted the netizen and told her that she will truly run as Quezon City mayor in the 2019 elections if online bashers will push her to her limits.

“Kung trip nyo kong bwisitin—you may get your worst nightmare come to life. Yan ang problema – yung kusang tumutulong hinuhusgahan. Yung mga nakaposisyon na nagkulang ngayon naghahanap ng pwedeng ma-bully. You are messing with the wrong woman,” Aquino said.

Aquino has said she has no plans to run for office because of her endorsement contracts. But in her comment, she said that she could yet change her mind.

“For your information, I haven’t received the professional fees due me from my new multinational contracts- so there is nothing hanging over my head regarding funds that I may need to return,” she said.

She then said that she has a good chance of winning if she will run to be the mayor of Quezon City.

“Do the political math — in a crowded field of candidates name recognition will matter.

“Kung campaign funds ang labanan, di rin naman ako magpapahuli. Wala akong utang kaya kakayanin kong pondohan ang sarili ko.

“And an important plus for me, I have 32 years of BIR tax records that can prove how trustworthy I am about money dahil alam ko na ang pera ng bayan para sa bayan,” she said.

“Kaya kong hamunin lahat ng ibang kandidato na maglabasan kami ng ITR para magkaalaman na. Sure akong wala akong magiging problema sa SALN declaration dahil sa malinis na paraan kinita ang pera ko.

“Next point, wala nang bahong pwedeng mahalungkat dahil ang buong kuwento ng buhay ko alam ng buong Pilipinas. Wala rin asawang kailangan panagutan ang mga posibleng gawin.

“Do not bully me,” Aquino added.

In case she will run, she said she will hire her brother, former president Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, to be her political adviser.

“Let’s not forget, I will also have the best possible adviser when it comes to good governance, my brother.

“So the city will get the best of both, vast experience and transparency. Hate to say it, but that’s an unbeatable combination.

“After all it was under him that the Philippines came only second to China in terms of economic growth.

“The difference now is that constituents will get daily Facebook and Instagram accomplishment reports from me.

“But I shall take my cue from his basketball analogy, you don’t share your playbook with the enemy. So wait ka lang. I have the next 2 months to decide,” she firmly said on Instagram.

Aquino was talking about the scheduled filing of candidacy this coming October.

The Queen of All Media ended her post by saying: “Our family is used to battling and slaying giants. So, it would serve your personal interests to let me be – because you don’t want to mess with a warrior at rest. Because she can so very easily become the victorious David to your pitiful Goliath.”
