ANGONO, Rizal — Presidential candidate Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has urged those who were intimated by what he called “pink bullies” to join forces with him and fight these “condescending” people.


Moreno’s rants against rival presidential bet Vice President Leni Robredo and her camp appeared to be far from over, as he continued with his verbal assault during an interview here on Thursday.

“Hindi ako titigil na labanan ang mga bully. ‘Yang mga pink bully na ‘yan, lalabanan natin, no to pink bully. Ngayon sa mga taong nanonood, kung kayo ay nakaramdam ng pambubully sa mga taong ito, samahan ninyo ako, labanan natin, labanan natin itong mga pink bully, itong mga matapobre na ito,” Moreno told reporters at the Angono Municipal Hall, where he made a courtesy call on Mayor Jeri Mae Calderon.


(I will not stop fighting these bullies. These pink bullies, we will fight them. No to pink bully. Now for those who are watching, if you were bullied by these people, come and join me, let’s fight them, let’s fight these pink bullies, these people who look down on the poor.)

The Aksyon Demokratiko’s standard-bearer and incumbent mayor of Manila has even called Robredo “the Godmother of all bullies.”

“When you allow [bullying], you’re also the biggest bully. You’re the godfather of [the bullies], in this case, godmother,” Moreno also said in another ambush interview on Wednesday.

But Robredo won’t respond to Moreno’s tirades, choosing to instead keep the focus on her presidential campaign.

“Hindi na tayo magse-spend ng time makipag-away sa ibang kandidato,” she said during an ambush interview on the sidelines of her rally at Bogo City in Cebu on Thursday.

(I would rather not spend time fighting other candidates.)


When asked for his reaction on Robredo’s response, Moreno said: “Hindi naman ako nakikipag-away. I am just stating facts, na bully sila.”

(I am not picking a fight, I am just stating facts that they are bullies.)
