Manila Mayor Isko Moreno said Monday there were better photos to mind than old movie star snaps of himself in a bikini -- that of people dying due to COVID-19.

Moreno did not name who he was referring to, but earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte threatened to clip the aid distribution powers of a "call boy" chief executive in a bikini. Moreno is the only Metro Manila mayor to have starred in sexy films.

"Imbes na busy sila sa COVID-19 na tingnan ang picture ko sa gabi kaysa 'yung picture ng mga namamatay, nasa labas ng ER dahil sila ay infected ng COVID-19 at picture ng isang pasyenteng nag-aagaw buhay e maraming salamat kasi mas attractive ang aking brief kaysa sa problema ng bayan. I'm honored but I'm not happy," he told the public.

"Maraming indibidwal, magaling lang sa kyaw kyaw, magaling lang sa kuwentuhan, ngunit malayo sa katotohanan ng sitwasyon ng ating pamayanan."

"In 1998, bilang sukli sa natamasa ko, pinaglingkuran ko ang taumbayan. Nung pinaglingkuran ko ang taumbayan, hindi ko ito ginahasa o pinagsamantalahan," he said.

"'Di tayo nagpapatakot, hindi tayo nagpapadala sa mga manduduro, sa mga urot, mga latang walang laman."

He also issued a reminder to all public officials.

"Matakot tayo sa mamamayan. Sila ang tunay na amo ng mga lingkod-bayan. Hindi natin amo ang mga pulitiko. Mga kapwa ko halal ng bayan, pinapaalala ko lang sa inyo: Matuto kayo ng salitang kabubusugan... Huwag na huwag kayong aabuso, huwag na huwag kayong magsasamantala. Hindi ito panghabambuhay. Hindi ito minamana-mana lang. Maglingkod tayo nang tapat sa panahon na tayo ay may responsibilidad."
