Senators, Con-com express dismay over Uson’s federalism ‘chant’

Several senators expressed their disappointment on Presidential Communications Operations Office Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson over her viral video of hosting a malice-laced lecture on federalism.

In an episode of “Good News Game Show,” Mocha’s co-host Drew Olivar performed a salacious dance pointing to his chest and crotch.Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III said:“Di ko lubos akalain na bababuyin pala nila ang kawsa [cause] ng pederalismo. Ilayo na si Mocha sa pederalismo. Mag-aral muna siya nang mabuti. Mag-leave muna siya,” Pimentel said.

Senator Nancy Binay also weighed in on the issue, lamenting that the seriousness of the discourse was “downgraded to the lowest of forms.”

“Dapat malinaw sa ating lahat na federalism is not an amusement piece, nor is it a comedy material. Sa totoo lang, even the most educated university professor finds federalism as a complicated subject,” said Binay in a statement.

Meanwhile, a Con-com member was disgusted by the entertainer-turned-government official’s show. Former Commission on Election (COMELEC) Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal took to Twitter to chide Uson. He said: “If you plan to do game shows, there are several TV shows that you can apply to join. The government is not the right place for fun and games. Government is serious business. Maybe it’s time for a career change.”

Uson defended herself saying that the show was filmed before she was asked by the consultative committee (Con-com) to lead the campaign on federalism.

She added that she did the show to encourage the public to talk about federalism.
