Michelle Lujan Grisham Confuses Trump’s Address to Joint Session with Low-brow Sporting Event

Albuquerque, NM – Last night during President Donald Trump’s first address to a joint session of congress, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham spent the night jeering and gesturing in a way much more fitting of a spectator at a professional wrestling match than a congresswoman at a presidential address.

“While President Trump was laying out his legislative plan to congress and the American people, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham decided she’d rather heckle and jeer than listen to our president speak,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “Regardless of her feelings about Donald Trump, it’s unbecoming of a congresswoman, especially one hoping to be elected governor, to disrespect her office and the occasion with such unsportsmanlike behavior. Trump’s policies would help New Mexico, and yet rather than listen to his plan for jobs or healthcare, Lujan Grisham has put political theater ahead of solutions. New Mexico deserves leadership that understands the seriousness of the issues we face.”
