On Thursday, embattled first-term Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham held her reelection announcement in Albuquerque at the Albuquerque Museum, where she was met with scores of protesters fed up with her extreme agenda, including locking down the state and pushing inoculations upon New Mexicans.
The protest, which was co-hosted by multiple New Mexico activists, included signs reading things like “No Crotch Grabbing Gov,” “MLG is deeply mediocre and dumb,” and “Alexa, new governor please,” among others.
The protesters drowned out multiple speakers’ speeches, including Democrat Rep. Teresa Leger de Fernandez (CD-3), Democrat Party of New Mexico chair Jessica Velasquez, and Rep-elect Melanie Stansbury (CD-1).
Once Lujan Grisham took the stage, the protesters with their bull horns got louder and louder, drowning out the scandal-ridden governor’s speech.
In frustration, Lujan Grisham made a cringe-inducing comment, claiming the protesters were “lizard people.”
She said, “I just have to say I’m sorry that we picked the same location that the QAnon lizard people meeting was at.”
“We’re going to do what we do best. We’re going to protect New Mexico, and no amount of noise will deter, intimidate or create a vacuum in leadership that makes a difference for every single New Mexican this day and every day,” Lujan Grisham said despite her reign as governor, which has decimated countless New Mexicans
Lujan Grisham was forced to cut her speech extremely short since the protesters successfully drowned her out.
Her controversy-driven tenure as governor has been marked with scandal after scandal after scandal. From forcing through the most far-left extreme bills through the Legislature to paying off sexual accusers and her own daughter with campaign cash, and then “misplacing” $250 million in Workforce Solutions money, she has weakened her chance of reelection day after day.
She repeatedly skirted her pandemic rules to buy luxury jewelry, used taxpayer funds for fine wine and $200/lb Wagyu beef steaks, berated local communities for not following her edicts, forced New Mexicans to stand in cold bread lines to get food and basic goods, fined churches and businesses tens of thousands of dollars for alleged non-compliance, removed the National Guard from the border and denied an immigration crisis, fired and hired cabinet secretaries on a dime, gave her staff hefty raises while New Mexicans lost everything, and she is giving away $10 million of New Mexicans’ dollars through a “lottery” to bribe people to take the experimental virus inoculation.
At Lujan Grisham’s next campaign stop at the John Dunn Shop in Taos on Friday at 8:00 a.m., protesters will be there to “greet” the embattled governor as she tries to run for a second term in the Governor’s Mansion. Protesters will also be in Española at the Santa Claran Hotel Casino on 460 N Riverside Dr, at 11:30 to protest the Governor.
