Governor Phil Murphy is doubling-down on a new angle in our hyper-partisan age: attacking the president(s) he doesn’t like.
On Monday, Murphy’s Democrat state committee sent out a blast e-mail containing a message from the governor:
“Today is also a day to look toward the future, and I can’t wait to have the opportunity to elect a new president in 2020 who shares our values and will work with us all for a stronger and fairer future.”
The Governor has been a shrill Trump critic since before he took office, comparing the Republican president to Hitler approximately two years ago at a church appearance.
Now in office, Murphy’s acts of defiance including openly flouting the efforts of ICE in New Jersey and filing (or joining) multiple lawsuits against the Trump Administration.
