Toni Gonzaga reacted to the viral post of Joey de Leon, where the Eat Bulaga! host made a pun on President-elect Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. and Vice President-elect Sara Duterte-Carpio’s win in the elections.
On May 25, a joint session of the Philippine Congress officially proclaimed Marcos Jr. as the Philippines’ new President and Sara Duterte-Carpio as Vice President, respectively.
In Joey de Leon’s Instagram post on May 28, he explained why BBM and Sara Duterte-Carpio won the 2022 elections.
“Bakit si BBM Presidente ngayon? Kasi after DU30, yung may 31 naman! After that DU30 TOO! Gets?” he said.

What this means is that BBM comes after President Rodrigo Duterte or DU30 because he has 31 million votes. Sara Duterte-Carpio comes after as the Vice President and can also be called DU30. Thus the pun, 30, 31, 32.
Toni Gonzaga found de Leon’s joke to be witty as she commented “OG Henyo.”
Other netizens also complimented de Leon for coming up with a witty joke.
Gonzaga is known to be a vocal supporter of Marcos Jr. and the UniTeam. She even performed in most of BBM’s campaign rallies.
Meanwhile, hashtags #CongratsPresidentBBM and #NeverAgain became trending topics on twitter after Marcos Jr. was proclaimed the 17th President of the Philippines.
