Netizens react to Mocha Uson ‘relocating’ La Trinidad to Baguio City 


“Previously, Mocha moved Mayon Volcano to Naga. Now, she’s moving La Trinidad to Baguio(s) City!”

Mocha Uson is once again trending in the Twitter world after committing another geography gaffe.

A clip of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Deputy Administrator “relocating” La Trinidad in Benguet to Baguio City has been making rounds on the internet on Wednesday.

In the video, Mocha can be heard stating where she was at.

“Andito po tayo sa La Trinidad Baguio(s). Baguio City,” she introduced her location.

She also sought confirmation from the lady next to her if La Trinidad is still part of Baguio. 

“Ang La Trinidad Baguio pa rin diba?”

“Iba po. La Trinidad, Benguet,” her companion answered. 

“Ay iba pala. Sorry sorry. La Trinidad Benguet,” she immediately corrected herself. 

The clip was part of Mocha’s feature video of a former OFW’s success story under OWWA’s Balik Pinas Balik Hanapbuhay livelihood program in Facebook live on Tuesday.

This is not the first time that the OWWA official made a “location” mistake. In 2018, her statement that Mayon Volcano is located in Naga City, Camarines Sur and not Albay province also became controversial.

La Trinidad and Mocha Uson instantly became top trending topics on Twitter, after netizens took notice of her “joke”.
