Manila Mayor Isko Moreno accuses Pinklawans of hijacking his support groups

Kakampinks then swarmed Moreno on social media.

Supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo have lost all respect for fellow presidential candidate Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso after his stunt on Easter Sunday, April 17.

Aside from calling on Robredo to withdraw from the presidential race which surprised even his supporters, Moreno also claimed that the Vice President’s camp is making efforts to strip him of his support groups.

“Alam ito ng mga group chat ng mga dilawan o pinklawan. They continue to send the message that on May 1, I will withdraw, and I will be appointed as secretary of DILG. How persistent they are? If I may borrow Sen. Ping Lacson’s word, ‘hinuhubaran kami,” Domagoso said during a joint press conference at the Manila Peninsula.

He said that the people responsible use “pink” and “yellow” colors which Robredo is associated with.

“Hindi kami mabili, ang binibili, tao namin. May bumili sa mga tao ni Senator Ping. May bumili sa mga tao namin, at it seems isang kulay lang lahat ng ito. Iisa ang gumagalaw sa aming lahat,” he said.

Lacson noted that Reporma, a party that initially backed his campaign, jumped ship to Robredo.

“Nangyari sa akin, yung Reporma, na-hijack. And then si Mayor Isko yung Ikaw Na sa Cebu, ganon din,” he said.

Moreno added that he hasn’t received an offer from the Marcos camp. He also wants to see the beef between the Marcoses and the Aquinos finally come to an end.

Kakampinks then swarmed Moreno on social media.

After taking heat, Moreno and Lacson’s camp blamed the media for giving the press conference an “anti-Leni Robredo” feel.

“That’s why it went to that conversation na naging anti-Leni Robredo na tuloy. This was the media who put those questions in and eventually of course, ‘yung mga sentiments ng candidates came out about her,” said Aksyon Demokratiko chair Ernest Ramel.

“It was that way because the questions by the media, they kept on pounding on the issue on Vice President Leni Robredo, that’s why the gentlemen obliged them by answering what they really felt,” he added.

Ashley Acedillo, Lacson’s spokesperson, shared the same sentiment.

“Du’n naman napunta ang discussion primarily because of the questions of the media. Du’n naman kasi dinadala ng media. There would have been a lot more substantive issues that could have been discussed,” she said.

Following the press conference, the attention on Robredo’s campaign increased in numbers.
