New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham dismissed protesters who appeared in her reelection campaign announcement as “Cunnon Lizard People”.
“I know it’s going to be loud, and I just have to say that I’m sorry we chose the same spot where the QAnon Lizards were meeting people,” the Democrat laughed. According to Santa Fe New Mexican.
The newspaper reported that “raucous” protesters gathered outside the Albuquerque museum to disrupt his press conference.
Signs on the protest read: “Governor, we are not your subjects,” “Open all businesses now,” and “Stop obeying orders.”
“She is being praised [President] Biden for being one of the best people to shut down this country, and he’s being applauded for that, but we really see it as outrage because he hasn’t really been able to get people to work. Forced to happen,” said John Ramaciotti, a protester carrying a gun and an intensive care nurse, according to the paper. “I think he really hurt our people, our kids.”
Lujan Grisham’s campaign spokeswoman, Kendall Witmer, said the governor had “certainly made the shortest speech ever” – shortened it due to protests.
