“Totoo naman. Bakit sya iiyak. Nasa script ba?” a netizen asked.
“Best actor! “ said another.
This netizen wondered what will happen if he becomes president and the criticism are far more worse than the the “maepal” criticism.
“Kung ganyan pa lang na naiiyak na sya, paano pa kung maging presidente baka nag lulupasay na! Pero syempre hindi magiging presidente.”
Another netizen asked of Yorme won an acting award before since he noted that the tears flowed on cue.

For the “Epal lng ang tinawag s kanya iyak na? C PRRD nga sandamakmak ang tawag s kanya tinatawanan nya lang.. Sasabihan ka lang SO?.. I DON’T CARE!.. hahaha”
According to the PEP article posted sometime in 2020, Yorme Isko Moreno broke down in tears while defending himself from a certain Atty. Tajar who called him “maepal” on social media.
It appeared that Yorme Isko earned the ire of Atty. Tajar, a human rights lawyer, for running after street vendors in Manila in line with the city’s road clearing operation and also for his threat to have vandals lick the graffitis in Lagunislad underpass if caught.
Atty. Tajar lamented that Yorme was quick to invoke people to follow the law and yet it is okay for him to violate the law.
Atty. Tajar cited Section 90 of RA 7160 of the Local Government Code which prohibited elected government officials to practice their profession.
Exhibit A. Atty. Tajar cited Yorme Isko’s huge billboards in EDSA as product endorser, a clear violation of RA 7160, prohibits Mayors like him to practice his profession while in office.
