TRENTON, NJ – Governor Phil Murphy has announced he will be delivering his COVID-19 briefing at 2:30 pm today as the state’s capital city of Trenton burns and is being looted around him. Murphy said the state is ready to move to his magical “Stage Two”. “Thanks to your hard work, we’ve flattened the curve of #COVID19 in New Jersey and are now closer to Stage Two,” the Governor said. “Join me live tomorrow at 2:30 PM for an important announcement.”
Murphy who has threatened police response to small business owners, public gatherings and social distancing violations for the past two months is now supporting large scale protests around the state with no social-distancing or PPE. The governor has also been under pressure from a large business alliance to reopen businesses who gave him an ultimatum to respond by today.
