Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso called out the penchant of some people, whom he did not name, to be busy looking at his past daring photos instead of finding ways to counter the effects of the current health crisis.
Mayor Isko emphasized that his life is open for scrutiny and that he does not hide anything from his past.
ABS-CBN reported that Mayor Isko pointed out he rose to fame through showbiz and that he did have daring roles and equally daring photos in the past as part of his work as an actor.
“’Yung mga bagay na nagawa ko sa showbiz ay mga bagay na parte ng buhay ko at hindi kinubli,” Manila’s local chief executive said.

The mayor also explained that his work in the entertainment industry required him to portray various roles.
“Ito ang naging hagdanan ko upang maitaguyod ko ang pamilya ko at bilang artista, marami akong dapat gampanan na karakter o dapat tupdin na responsibilidad. Masaya ako at nakaahon ako sa kinalalagyan ko,” the local chief executive revealed.
The Manila local chief executive, according to a report by the Manila Bulletin, was at the groundbreaking ceremonies of a housing project.
He then called out some personalities, whom he did not name, for getting busy ogling at his daring photos instead of checking out the photos of those who were sick or died from COVID-19.
“Imbis na busy sila sa COVID-19, natingnan nila ‘yung picture ko sa gabi kaysa ‘yung picture ng mga namamatay, picture ng nagkakasakit,” Mayor Isko told reporters during the groundbreaking of a housing project.
In a report by the Inquirer, the local chief executive also emphasized that he has nothing to hide except his member.
“Wala akong tinago sa inyo. Ang hindi n’yo na lang nakikita ‘yung harapan ko. Ang buhay ko is an open book. Maraming salamat kay Kuya Germs… binigyan niya ako ng chance na iahon ko ang aking sarili sa pag-aartista,” Mayor Isko said.
While Mayor Isko did not mention any names, it can be recalled that President Rodrigo Duterte slammed a mayor in the NCR, whom he did not name, for having daring photos online.
The President then taunted the public, asking them if such person is what they want to lead the country.
“Yan ang gusto ninyo? Ang training parang call boy. Naghuhubad, nagpipicture nakabik*n* tapos ‘yung garter tinatanggal niya?” President Duterte said then, adding that it must be the training of a future president to undress in front of a camera and peek at his member and boast about it.
There are speculations that Mayor Isko is eyeing the top position of the land in next year’s presidential elections.
