Mayor Isko Moreno of Manila has been compared by some netizens to President Rodrigo Duterte’s style minus the foul language and of course his penchant to dish out r@pe humor in public speeches.
According to some netizens, Moreno remind them of then Mayor Duterte in terms of leadership style.
When PRRD was Davao City Mayor, he was hands on and used to roam around the city at night and alone to catch the bad guys by driving a taxi.
Meanwhile, Mayor Moreno has been roaming around Manila to apprehend violators of city ordinances, day and night, accompanied by policemen, Manila aides and of course, the local media for coverage purposes.
However, if you ask DLSU professor Van Ybiernas, the similarities stops here.
In a Facebook post, Ybiernas frankly said PRRD was not a PR creation and was never publicity hungry.
Ybiernas remarked Isko Moreno isn’t.

Naalala ko lang.
Ewan kung natatandaan nyo pa si Rolando Mendoza. Yung pulis na nanghostage ng tourist bus noong 2010.
Gusto rin umeksena noon nina yorme Alfredo Lim at ang kanyang bise na si Isko Moreno.
Ayaw lumagay sa pronta ang Dilawang national government kaya yung lokal na pamahalaan ng Maynila ang naka pronta.
Tapos nung sumablay, ayaw na nila angkinin. Wala na gustong umangkin.
Although si Isko pa rin ang humarap sa media kasi adik sa exposure at limelight si koya.
Ganun talaga, kapag tagumpay ambilis ng angkinan. Kapag palpak, turuan agad.
Buti pa yung Duterte hindi minasahe ng mga bayarang PR ang imahe bilang meyor ng Davao, ayun naging presidente naman at ubod ng popular pa. Di kailangan may media na nakabuntot kahit hatinggabi o madaling araw.
Taumbayan ang bumuo ng imahe ni Duterte hindi mga mukhang perang PR practitioners.
Kaya kita nyo, sa SONA inaangkin ni Duterte ang lahat ng kapalpakan ng gobyerno.
Abangan na lang natin ang 2022 kung anong mangyari sa uhaw sa publicity na PR creation…
