New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) stepped into the hot seat on Wednesday by appearing on Tucker Carlson’s eponymous Fox News program.
Carlson grilled Murphy for his heavy-handed executive orders that have shut down public life throughout his state. Murphy’s responses were very telling and showed what he thinks of the Constitution and his oath of office.
“By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order?” Carlson asked Murphy.
“I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this,” he responded.
“Well I can tell,” Carlson retorted.
The entire contentious exchange can be seen here:
