Democrat Colorado Gov. Jared Polis recently threw shade at scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham for her strict mask mandate in the state, which shows it is not helping, especially with New Mexico having the fifth-highest infection rate in the nation despite the edict.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, “A Lujan Grisham spokeswoman said Polis’ comments were ‘disappointing,’ citing studies showing that wearing a mask, especially a surgical mask, reduces the spread of [the virus].”
Department of Health spokesman Matt Bieber claimed, “The science is unequivocal: when high-quality masks are worn correctly, they are incredibly effective at reducing the spread,” claiming, “Without a mask mandate, New Mexico would have more cases.”
However, many are not buying the Lujan Grisham regime’s excuses.
Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce said that the Lujan Grisham regime lacks “real science to support” the mandate. He said that virus infection numbers “keep climbing, even with Lujan Grisham’s forced mask mandates.”
While New Mexico remains a top infected state, Lujan Grisham has been galavanting across the globe, traveling to Scotland for a “climate change” conspiracy theory conference on the taxpayers’ dime and then traveling to Washington, D.C. to participate in Joe Biden’s bill signing of the far-left $1.2 trillion non-infrastructure bill.
During her trip to D.C., the governor has been spotted in a massive 3M mask covering most of her face, including while on live television interviews. Kendall Witmer, Lujan Grisham’s campaign spokeswoman claimed the embattled governor masking herself “underscored her respect of New Mexico’s health care workers and families by wearing a mask while in D.C.”
