GOP hopeful Ciattarelli rips NJ Gov Murphy over Bill of Rights 'above my pay grade' comment

主办 塔克·卡尔森 reminded the audience of Murphy’s last appearance on the program in April 2020 — when New Jersey and its surrounding Democrat-run states instituted sweeping mandates against religious or family gatherings and operations of businesses like gyms and restaurants.

在四月份 2020, Carlson asked Murphy about a case in which 15 men were arrested for congregating at a Lakewood, 新泽西州, synagogue for the funeral of Orthodox Rabbi Chaim Moshe Strulovics in violation of his executive order banning large gatherings.

‘The Bill of Rights, 如你所知, protects Americansrights — enshrines their right to practice their religion as they see fit and to congregate together to assemble peacefully,” 卡尔森说. “By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order? How do you have the power to do that?”

That’s above my pay grade, 塔克,” Murphy responded. “I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did thiswe looked at all the data and the science and it says people have to stay away from each other. That is the best thing we can do to break the back of the curve of this virus, that leads to lower hospitalization and ultimately fatalities.
