Murphy mocks critics of mask policies: “Your political affiliation is NOT an underlying condition.”

TRENTON, N.J. – Governor Murphy poured gasoline on the great national mask debate on Monday by accusing skeptics of playing politics.

“Your political affiliation is NOT an underlying condition,” tweeted Murphy while noting that certain medical conditions are the only adult exception to his executive order mandating masks usage in retail buildings and crowded outdoor spaces.

Here’s the tweet:

Governor Murphy ordered outdoor masks last week.

There are political trendlines behind mask usages; polls have shown that Republicans are the least likely to regularly wear them.
