On October 8, Disinformation peddler Mocha Uson filed her certification of nomination and acceptance (CONA) for the Mothers for Change (MOCHA) party-list.
However, in an ironic turn of events, Anti-Fake News Beauty Queen Michelle Gumabao joined Uson as the secondary representative of the said party-list.
As a result, netizens reacted to the unlikely team-up of Uson and Gumabao.
Most netizens felt baffled over Gumabao’s decision to run with Uson on the same party list.

Others defended the team-up of the two, siding with Uson.
Michele Gumabao is being bashed by a few low quality wokes for supporting a movement that empowers mothers just because it's headed by Mocha Uson.
A few errors on Mocha's previous posts (which isn't life-threatening at all) has nothing to do with their advocacy. Grow up idiots.

Although Uson joined a party-list named Mothers for Change, Uson herself isn’t a mother. However, there were rumors about her supposed pregnancy in January 2021.
As for Gumabao, she expressed her advocacy against fake news when she won Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2018.
“I know that fake news is very rampant nowadays, but in order to fight this, we must first know what we are reporting, know what we are reading, and at the same time be accountable for what we say, especially online.”
