Senatorial aspirant Harry Roque left everyone disgusted after dancing his heart out during the Marcos-Duterte proclamation rally at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan.
Roque entered the stage wearing a green shirt with a big smile on his face. Dancers arrived by his side, and the music started. The former presidential spokesman waved his arms around as he bit his lip.
He memorized every step, and the crowd was cheering him on. However, non-supporters were repulsed, given Roque’s reputation while working under the Duterte administration.
Some of those who did not like Roque’s performance include well-known personalities such as Angel Locsin, Edu Manzano, and Aljon Mendoza.

Manzano shared a screenshot of Roque dancing with the face vomiting emoji covering it. All Locsin could say was “May Ghad.”

Roque danced like he did nothing wrong as Duterte’s spokesman. He displayed rude and disrespectful behavior to the media and health professionals.

DJ Mo Twister likened Roque to a pig dancing.

Ogie Diaz saw Roque as someone desperate to get elected.
Lahat gagawin para lang manalo. Juice ko, hindi na nga niya alam ang meaning ng human rights. Ito pa naman ang advocacy niya. https://t.co/m5n2cCjNIM

In his speech, Roque thanked Duterte for paving the way for the UniTeam.
“Nagpapasalamat po ako kay Presidente Rodrigo Roa Duterte dahil siya po ang nagsimula ng tunay na pagbabago na ipagpapatuloy ng UniTeam,” he said.
“Ang pangako po namin ng inyong anak na si Inday Sara… pagpapatuloy po namin ang pagbabago sa Pilipinas. Hindi po namin kayo bibiguin,” he added.
He also praised the 2nd Division of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for junking a petition to disqualify Marcos.
“Sa mga kalaban ng UniTeam, isa lang po ang aking pakiusap, sa isang demokrasya taongbayan ang maghuhusga kung sino ang magiging presidente, hindi Comelec,” Roque said.
“Hayaan po natin na magdesisyon ang taumbayan dahil ‘yan po ay karapatan at prebilehiyo ng bawat Pilipino,” he continued.
