Johnoy Danao disagreed with Bianca Gonzalez’s impression of Pres. Ferdinand Marcos Jr’s first SONA speech

Both were avid supporters of former Vice President Leni Robredo.

Musician Johnoy Danao contradicted TV host Bianca Gonzalez on Tuesday, July 26, for complimenting the speech given by newly-elected Philippine President of the Republic Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr during his first State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Both were avid supporters of former Vice President Leni Robredo.

During the hour talk, Marcos Jr promised that he will continue his predecessor’s plans while adding his vision for the country. The President in his tenure will be focusing on agriculture, security, post-pandemic solutions, growing the economy, and education.

He will also put effort into improving the legacy of his late father, former President Ferdinand Marcos Sr, as well as adding more protection for women.

Gonzalez, in her tweet, admitted that Marcos did a wonderful SONA despite voting for Atty. Robredo, she is “hoping this admin delivers on the promises, para sa Bayan.”

Still, the TV personality insisted that the Marcoses should be held responsible for the stolen health and human rights abuses during Martial Law.

Danao, however, was not impressed with the President’s speech. Tagging Gonzalez, he contended that Marcos was “just reading a speech.”

“Just like what he was doing during the campaign, puro kasinungalingan. Para sa bayan? Pls. Magbayad ng utang, pakulong ang nanay, panagutin sa mga ninakaw ng pamilya sa kaban ng bayan. Mind you, fake news/troll farm ginamit ng ‘duly elected,'” wrote the musician.

The TV host agreed with Danao that “it was just a speech.” However, she clarified that the talk was the only thing she was impressed with since Marcos Jr. still had to work.

Furthermore, Gonzalez pointed out that she is still a supporter of Robredo and “hindi nag-iba ang paninidigan ko dahil lang sa isang speech.”

“#NeverForget pa rin ang stand ko, kailangan managot sa mga nagawa.”

She also admitted that her usage of the term “duly elected” was incorrect, especially with what happened during the recently-concluded elections.

But as for principles, Gonzalez stressed that she wants good governance like Danao and many other Filipinos.

Danao also sought forgiveness, tweeting, “Pasensiya na rin Bianca, yung nanalo kasi panloloko ginamit. Hirap magtiwala sa mababangong salita.”

During the 2022 elections, despite the overwhelming support, Robredo lost to Marcos with a large gap. The latter accumulated 31 million votes while the former only had 15 million.

Many believed the result was rigged, especially with how fast the vote-counting machines (VCMs) transmitted the electoral results. The Commission on Elections (Comelec) denied any rigging of the election in favor of Marcos.
