This is too early to tell but it appears Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso of Manila has ruffled some feathers of known DDS bloggers.
Why did I say that?
Well, the Manila Mayor press conference made the slight, just slight inadvertent mistake of upstaging President Duterte.
If you have not heard, the Manila Mayor announced the arrest of 35 illegal dr^g suspects in Baseco, Tondo, Manila without firing a single shot from the police.
The Manila Mayor said 35 were arrested and 35 were caught alive and kicking.
While Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso’s statement, which you can read below, appears innocent to you, some DDS bloggers thought the Manila Mayor was trying to throw shade at President Duterte’s war on dr^gs campaign.

One of the most vocal DDS bloggers who found Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso’s statement quite distressing and eyebrow-raising was fearless DDS blogger MJ Quimbao Reyes.
In a Facebook post, Reyes retaliated by throwing shade at the Mayor Isko’s achievement in a viral FB post.
Basically, Reyes belittled the Mayor’s early success by crediting the successful arrest of the Baseco dr^g suspects to the PNP, PDEA and PRRD instead to the Manila Mayor.
Reyes cited the figures on PRRD’s war on dr^gs versus Isko Moreno Domagoso’s and the message of the DDS blogger was clear: Duterte’s achievements is way up here while Isko Moreno Domagoso’s success is not yet enough reason for them to fantasize this early of a presidential run.
Reyes advised Mayor Isko to distance himself from the “dilawans” media and the oligarchs because they are a curse bring bad luck to whoever they support. Hello OtsoDiretso!

MAYOR ISKO (MANILA):
📌 35 arrested. 35 alive. Not bad.
PRES. DUTERTE (PILIPINAS):
📌 1,600,070+ surrendered. Alive.
📌 193,086+ arrested. Alive.
📌 5K± died during anti drug ops (less than 0.3% of 1.8M alive)
GOOD JOB, PRRD, PNP, & PDEA.
Imagine kung ang 1.6 million+ (who surrendered) ay pumalag, in denial, aarestuhin, at kakasuhan pa?
Kulang na kulang ang husgado natin para sila’y litisin. Kulang na kulang din ang kulungan natin.
Imagine how much will the taxpayers have to spend para litisin at pakainin ang 1.6M+ na’ng ilang taon o dekada sa kulungan?
My estimate: About Php200B/year.
Buti na lang: Natakot agad sila sa Pangulo. Kusang sumuko. Nag-palista. Nag-zumba. Nagpa-rehab. Nag community service. Nag-training sa TESDA. Kusang nagbabago. Menos gastos. 😉
THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT! FOR RESPECTING & FOR PROTECTING NOT JUST OUR HUMAN RIGHTS BUT MORE SO THE WELFARE OF THE 108 MILLION FILIPINOS.
To Mayor Isko: You’ve a bright future ahead. Wag lang po masyadong magdididikit sa yellow media at greedy oligarchs ha? May balat sa puwet ang mga yan! Pramis 😜
